Very good to get a good overview of Paris and to experience important sights in a short time. Buses come regularly at short intervals, so you never have to wait long. The audio guide provides very comprehensive and interesting information. The bus drivers are very friendly. I forgot my smartphone on the bus and the bus driver at the information center found the BigBus we were in and it was actually still there. We were then able to take another BigBus for free to Notre Dame where the bus driver was waiting for me with his cell phone. That was very, very customer-friendly.

The Tour on the bus is very good, you have headphones to plug into some areas of the bus, where you have an audio guide of everything you see in several languages. You can get on and off as many times as you want and it has 10 stops of the most important monuments in Paris.

The buses were relatively well available and the utilization in the buses was also tolerable. A few times people had to wait for the next bus. The route and the explanations on the bus were great. The boat tour on the Seine was also great in itself, but unfortunately the explanations on board could only be used from the upper deck.
