About Open Tour Paris
OpenTour Paris was the first to introduce the concept of a regular tourist line with open-top double-decker buses in France. OpenTour forms part of the Tourism and Leisure sector in Paris proper and offers a commented tour on board open-top double-decker buses. Today it offers 3 routes and a fleet of 40 buses. Its lines were meticulously planned to serve not only the main highlights of the capital, but also to offer its users a frequent transport service. All buses are equipped with automatic ticket machines and audio guides with commentaries in 10 languages for adults and 3 languages for children. The principle is simple: buy a pass for 1, 2 or 3 days to access all 3 routes, and hop on and off whenever you want at any stops. At the OpenTour shop at 13, rue Auber 75009 Paris, customers can find all the necessary information and tickets to make their visit a success.

We booked a 2-day pass for the bus and unfortunately only one of the three routes was available during our stay. This was not made clear during our reservation and we were very disappointed to not be able to experience Paris the way we had planned. We have since reached out for a partial refund, but have not heard back yet.

We traveled to Paris earlier this month and I bought a family day pass for Open Tour Paris. I paid 89 euros then we waited over 30 minutes for a bus. When we finally boarded, the code scanner didn't work but the driver saw the receipt in my phone email and let us ride. But then the bus went in the opposite direction from what was posted at the stop. We wanted to hop off at the next stop to change to a more desirable route, but we were going the wrong way! They posted the hours of operation on their mobile site, but the last run was not clearly indicated or explained. We learned that we were on the last run after boarding the bus, which meant it was too late in the day to easily make a route change. The bus driver spoke neither English nor Spanish so he was of no help. When I plugged in the earbuds for the guided recording, it was broken. I immediately emailed Open Tour Paris to request a refund. The next day, I received a refusal via email. I replied to ask if we could at least ride a different bus that day and that hopefully, the recording would work. No response. What dishonesty and a lack of customer service! Avoid Open Tour Paris like the plague and find a more worthy way to spend your hard-earned money!

We chose this company over others as the top of the bus was covered on some of the buses and mostly had no windows - better for photos, whereas other companies were completely open to the elements except for a small section. It provided a good service and we really didn't have time to get off when checking out all the routes, only got off twice, though sometimes we were waiting awhile between route stops. The audio guide was good and the price was good - you could find a discount in some of the tourist brochures of 4 euros. It passed major sites of interest which was good if you had limited time.
