Firstly very expensive. Secondly poor commentary. Gaps filled with loud irritating music, and buses overcrowded. No clear system of getting on or off buses and not always clear about when you arrived at the bus stops, so easy to miss your stop. Although this is not the fault of the bus company, the traffic is very busy now in Paris, so it took a long time to reach your destination and the fumes/ pollution were not pleasant. If you are looking for a site seeing tour perhaps try a coach tour and if you want to use it to get around try the cheaper metro system. The boat tour is also a good option.

Be advised - These tickets cannot be cancelled or be refunded. You can only transfer dates within 6-month timeframe. Bought one yesterday for 3 months' time, contacted Big Bus of change of plans today only to be told I should have read T&C.s

It's so helpful to get the lay of the land and a relatively quick view of all the sites you want to see and visit during your time in Paris.

Fun way to get an overview of city, then hop off. We couldn't get up top at first - beautiful day. Waited one stop then went up top - do be careful of tree limbs - can be an issue. Headset narrative good.

The Big Bus was a good way to explore Paris. Do wear the headphones and know where you want to go as the drivers do not announce the stops. I would not expect to visit all of the sights unless you book multiple days. Be aware you may have to wait at the the Bug Bus station for quite awhile ( depending upon the time of day), we were waiting for a bus driver as our bus driver left. No one said anything to us from Big Bus. We were asked to change buses and then we had to wait some more.
