We enjoyed the tour but unfortunately we're not given headphones by the driver. It was a little chaotic getting on the bus. I would recommend getting to the bus stop,very near the L'arc de Triomphe,at least 15 minutes before your departure. Wear warm clothes as it can be breezy but it does stop at the main attractions so to give time to take photos. A little overpriced for what it is.

If you’re in Paris this is your best way of seeing all the great sights; with pre recorded narration! I loved it! You get to hop on and hop off at any of their stops, take all your touristy pictures 😉, I bought a day’s ticket, didn’t stay the whole and was able to use it up the next day! Just make sure you have it to show. Loved the flexibility … well worth your money 😁. It’s high too, so provides great view. 👍🏾

First time in Paris and my first time trying one of these tour buses. Absolutely loved it! Cylu (if I’m not misspelling her name!) was such a good guide. She explained everything perfectly, gave a lot of really curious and interesting facts and even made the ride fun with a joke every now and then. My 10’s!!!!

We booked our seats on the Paris Big Bus night tour for last Friday. We came on time but ended up finding no seats for us (4people). The driver rudely and loudly told us to go downstairs because there's no other bus coming and that we should just sit at the lower deck. He shouted at us in front of all the other passengers in the upper deck. We found this weird because the first night bus that left minutes ago before ours, had no passengers at the lower deck. Also, we booked seats and yet people without tickets got on the bus and sat on the upper deck (we know they didn't have tickets because they asked us how to book and they were behind us in the queue). Also, the bus driver stopped near the louvre to let a woman withdraw money from the ATM. She gave the driver some money and said in French, "You must accept this", which was quite suspicious. Very disappointing. Terrible service.

Booked the Big Bus Paris night tour for Monday 8th August and was advised that it would depart from 156 Av. des Champs-Élysées at 20:15.
We arrived at the pick up point at 20:00, in good time for the bus to depart at 20:15.
By 20:40 the bus still haven’t arrived and we (along with many others) were stood at the pick up point and given no information about whether the bus was just running late or the tour had been cancelled altogether.
At this point we assumed that the tour had been cancelled and left so that we could enjoy what was left of our evening in Paris.

We were excited to see the City of Lights at night but were sorely disappointed with the service and pre-trip information provided by this company. We signed up for the night bus in Paris, but the email confirmation/tickets did not mention that you could only board from one specific stop. We finally contacted customer service to follow up to see where the bus was and it was then that they mentioned that there was only one stop to board at. They would not give us a refund, despite the fact that we could no longer board. It was very frustrating. We took 2 cabs to try to reach the one stop and never made it! This tour is billed as a hop on hop off but only leaves from the Champs Élysées.

The boarding process was unorganized and downright dangerous. When the bus arrived people mobbed it. Elderly were knocked down and children squished and separated from their parents. Then the actual tour was terrible, we were stuck in the bottom with no air and only a few windows opened. We could not see any of the sights because the driver would not turn off the interior lights so we only got reflections and same with trying to take pictures. The audio guide did not work and the few times it did it was not for the correct area. The driver drove in circles and kept stopping to talk to taxi drivers and other bus drivers. This was a great disappointment and I would not recommend for other travelers.

If i could no -5 we would have .. booked the night tour on our first night in Paris and feel like we can never get our evening back .. the website and booking states you can board at any of the 10 stops starting at 8 at 8.15 .. we waited at stop 1 (Effile Tower) till 9.15 .. no where it states the bus runs anti clockwise. No information as to what time you would expect the bus. It doesn't say stop 8 is a start and finish just a start. We downloaded the app and tried to find a live tracker but nothing. So badly run .. a waste of a evening when time is valuable .. sad had just done bus in Singapore and Shanghai and had great experiences:(

Overall we enjoyed the experience.
However the boarding system really needs improvement, it was so disorganised …more like a rugby scrum.
Obviously the information given on buying the tickets needs to be clearer, there were lots of people trying to board the night bus with day bus tickets so obviously they we’re disappointed.
The commentary initially was out of sync but caught up.
The bus was littered with rubbish/headphones etc from previous trip(s) which isn't acceptable.
The tour was very good though, most points of interest covered and NOT rushed.
Plenty of time for photo’s.

Lack of information online about how the NIGHT tour differed from hop on hop off. Much confusion on where to catch the bus and “ rules” … a lot of stress over whether we were at the right place at the right time. Ultimately ran down the champs E to catch a bus, never knew whether it was the right one! All ended ok. More explanation would have been helpful.
