Spectacular experience. Due to traffic we were little late for the bus. It was so kind of them that they waited for us. We highly appreciate and highly recommend tourist to try this amazing ride ❤️

At least on my first visit to Paris, I think the bus ride makes a lot of sense. We booked for three days right away because the difference is very small.

It was a very complete tour of the City. It's a shame it rained, but it's part of the Parisian tradition. I recommend it.

Highly recommended. Better price than the rest. The buses run every so often and the stops are in the right places.

Gives a good relaxed impression of Paris at night…
