Good way to get around, outside of rush hours of course - not such a great way to learn about anything though. The commentary was cheesy and generally uninformative and the music... read more

We just got back from Paris and had the chance to use L'open Tour Bus and we really enjoyed it. We used the green and yellow line and the audio guide is very clear and easy to understand. We are sorry we didn't have any time left to use the other two lines. 100% recommended.

We recently booked a tour at 2.45 pm not realising that the last bus we needed to get back to the Eiffel Tower was only 1 hr and 35 mins after we got on it and we stopped for a coffee and got on another bus and the driver told us we could get to the Eiffel Tower but we... More

Good way to get around, outside of rush hours of course - not such a great way to learn about anything though. The commentary was cheesy and generally uninformative and the music was AWFUL (so much so I took my headphones off on several occasions). Other bus companies (Big Bus) seemed to have more frequent buses - just based on... More

I have visited Paris many times with my husband and we always travel independently on our own, but when I have a big group of relatives and siblings (of all different ages) coming for a visit from Asia and I have to take them all over Paris, I always opt for L’Open Bus Tour. It is so much more convenient... More

They have 4 main bus routes, and you can take them all on the same day. We took the yellow and the green. Green is the most popular route, as it hits the big sites like Eiffel Tower and the Louvre and the Arch d'Triomph. It's worth it, for about $30 you can catch the green line somehwere and take...

This was definitely the best way to see Paris. We hopped on and off for two days. The drivers were great, pleasant and helpful and the sights magnificent. Well worth the fare.

As first time visitors, we used the L'Open Bus Tour to get around Paris. This is a "hop on, hop off" tour bus service which runs all day and stops about every 15 minutes at the various attractions. You are given ear plugs which you can plug into an intercom system and here some interesting facts as you tour the... More

This is a great transport if you are a first time visit to Paris. Highly recommended as it will go to all the tourist hot spots. It has 4 routes and worth it. Recommend to take more than one day as the price is more cheaper. I took this tour during my trip in Paris (1May 2016-2May 2016).

Good number of busses. Some great views from the route without the need to get off with photo opportunity stops (albeit quite short at times) audio was OK, out of sync at times. Our bus broke down and the driver let us sit on the bus for 20 minutes before advising we had to get off in 30+ heat. Some... More

With only 2 1/2 days in Paris, a city we've visited many times before but not recently, we wanted to orient ourselves again and get around to see a number of sites. We used this bus as transportation as much as a tour. Adding on the second day was very inexpensive and with three separate lines, it traveled to more... More
