Good information and stops. It was slightly raining so you could not see out of the windows on the top. They do not have wipers or heat on the upper deck and you could not see out the windows after the rain so that was disappointing. If the weather was nicer it would have been a better tour. Definitely worth doing either way.

Excellent way to see Paris at a glance. I only had a couple of hours in Paris for a stopover and this was a good choice to experience Paris while listening to the history of this beautiful city on board. The guide meeting me at the bus was not that friendly and they did not have any printed maps left, which are always helpful and interesting. But appart from that... a very nice couple of hours in Paris. Saw a lot and could take some nice pictures of the stunning historical sights.

Two things. We rode multiple busses during the day. It seems there are slightly better recordings on different busses. One buys was mainly music while another have additional information. Additionally the Big Red Bus seemed to have several head phone connectors where you could not select a language. We would have to move seats. Some busses were full while others had plenty of room. We went on a rainy Saturday.
