Ok... Not great

The HOHO wasn't bad but despite staying in a very central location in the 2nd arr. it wasn't near a stop. Service also ended too early. That being said, I never had a problem... read more

I bought this tour through Viator. We purchased it about a week before we left for Paris. The ad and the tour agent on the phone said they would be going to Spring hours (running until 7pm) on April 1st. Our tour was for April 7-9, and was to include a Seine cruise. Apparently they changed this. There wasn't a... More

If you want to see the popular tourist spots, get a 3 day pass. The hop on hop off bus will take you to all of the popular tourist spots. Add the Seine cruise and it is an exceptional bargain.

The HOHO wasn't bad but despite staying in a very central location in the 2nd arr. it wasn't near a stop. Service also ended too early. That being said, I never had a problem getting a seat or waited too long.

This would have got a higher rating but for the fact that when we bought the tickets online 1 week before travelling we were advised that there would be a summer service of a bus every 10 mins - when we arrived they had changed this to the winter service of every 30 mins and an earlier finish time. The... More

We waited 45 minutes for the bus to come to the Arc du Triumph stop. When it did arrive the bus was full and we only able to stand. The bus always went very fast and we were thrown all around while having to stand with our young children. The audio was very interesting and we did find things to... More

It took us from 10am to 12pm to get from Notre Dame to la Bastille today (that is 4 stops, sitting on a bus, not particularly interesting, and waiting)--basically l'open tour cost us half a day for no apparent reason. First we waited in a driver-less bus, which was idling at the stop for 6 minutes. Tours begin at 10,... More

Do not book with this tour company! First we had to actually print out tickets when we did not have access to a printer...took us an hour to get to their office to print! Buses were not frequent! Waited average of 30 mins for buses! Not a pleasant experience at all for our first day in Paris! Avoid this company!

The worst tour ever. Not frequent and also not on time. Sometimes the bus stop but doesn't let the passengers on the bus. I recommend not to use this bus ever.

Neighborhood Profile
Opera / Bourse
The neighborhood around Opéra and Bourse is a belle époque paradise of grand boulevards, refined arcades, and mass-market art-nouveau entertainment. Here, modern day workers continue to take advantage of the legacy that nobility and finance left in the 19th century. Brightly-lit brasseries, theaters, and cinemas sit side by side with French bistros predominating in one area and Japanese restaurants in another. The area is most famous for the Palais Garnier opera house and glamorous department stores.
