Ill informed
Kenneth_B

We wasted the first Big Bus day. We were informed by a Big Bus employee that we didn't need to exchange our form for tickets to the Arc du Triomphe but when we got there we were refused admission. We had to go back to the Big Bus office to get tickets. The lady on reception had no empathy she was not sympathetic and there was no apology. Following an unpleasant argument we were given an extra day's bus tour which we couldn't use because of time constraints. We were not impressed.

Ride was great and comfortable. Driver slowed down nicely in front of the sights/ monuments to allow for good pictures. We stayed on for the whole ride, it was about 2 hours. Highly recommend it.

Sad tour

Bus was ok but I purchased the Arch and River package with it. Not on the Arch of Triomph mentions going to the ticket office for the tickets so I went to the Arch and could not get in. On river cruise direction on where to get tickets very confusing. Even the big bus employees said the passes have to be clearer.

Well worth the money. Paris is a beautiful city and it’s worth getting a ticket to do sightseeing. You just can’t see everything on foot.

It poured with rain, and although we were sitting inside, the rain poured through the ceiling and down our backs. It was very uncomfortable for the entire 2 hours.

Touring Paris in heavy rain with sun coming out every now and then. Talking to co-passengers and the long walk to the stops. Most memorable was missing the last bus and having to book uner instead.

Great ride, convenient amd frequent!
John_D
, May 2022
Spring showers weren't going to keep is from sightseeing and the buses come frequently... Every 6-10 minutes. Drivers have to be mercilous as Paris traffic is the craziness we have ever experienced. Sudden stops necessitated because of Parisan drivers should be anticipated. At critical roundabouts, the drivers do a couple 360 degree rounds to help viewing and photos. Slickers are provided, but you should being a absorbable rag/towel to dry the seats. Clouds cleared after a few minutes and brilliant sunshine appeared! Virtually every key tourist attraction was on the 'classic' route so folks were literally hopping!

Customer Service Excellent with knowledge.

Well the bus tour was great! Nothing can beat sitting and seeing the historic city of Love-Paris! I would have to say the staff is what made our trip memorable. Our plane delayed us ,and we were unable to start our tour as planned. We visited the head on office near Opera and the staff gave us service excellence! We also received expert advice on a museum pass that Big bus sells to see all the museums. We also bought a pass for Versaille , with all kinds of tips & how to get there by metro & train. I did not get the young man’s name who helped us, but he should know how much it made our experience special! I would definitely recommend this company for your travel experience’s In Paris & surrounding areas!

We could not get in touch with anyone to change our dates - our daughter was ill - so we did not go. We sent a request to change the dates and received a message it would be up to 7 days before a response.

A great way to see more of the city in 1 day, sometimes the audio was a bit late playing the information as we had already passed the building it was talking about. It was still worth it though.
