Overall rating

This was a brilliant tour - seeing Paris illuminated was very special. The night we went, it rained but Big Bus staff distributed plastic ponchos which meant we stayed pretty much dry so the weather really doesn’t matter. It’s well worth the money (in my view) and we loved it from start to finish …and there is a particular high point to finish (but I’ll not spoil it for you by telling you what it is!)

This tour was really great. Driving around Paris for two hours while it slowly gets dark was a great experience. In addition, the audio was clearly intelligible, very informative and at times very funny. I enjoyed the tour and would definitely do it again on my next visit to Paris.

We recommend doing the tour at the beginning of a visit to Paris, it is very informative and makes further sightseeing easier.

Very nice experience, I really liked the city of Paris, I was able to learn a lot.

fantastic way of getting to and seeing all the major attractions of Paris
