About The Big Bus Paris Sightseeing Tour:

Explore the French capital flexibly and comfortably aboard the Big Bus Paris sightseeing tour. Their distinctive maroon-coloured buses operate along two unique routes: a red city centre line covering all the classic attractions, and a blue Montmartre line that visits the Basilique du Sacré-Coeur and Musée Grévin.

Printed tickets can be presented directly to the bus driver, allowing you to start the tour at any stop. Once aboard you'll be able to listen to recorded commentary in a choice of 11 languages. Pick the one that suits you and learn about the history and culture of Paris, as well as the dramatic tales surrounding its most famous landmarks. If a particular attraction sparks your interest simply hop-off at the nearest stop and explore up-close. The buses run approximately every 15 minutes*, so it's easy to pick up right where you left off.

*Buses on the blue route run every 30 minutes.
