The tour was really good. I suggest to do the tour first that was you get to see most of Paris and plan your next adventure from there. Cons: the driver was driving too fast. If you are sitting on top watch out for the tree branches, most of them are low and will hit you in the face/head.

Top provider. Nice and informative bus tour as described. Nice bus driver. We had booked the boat trip directly. Get tickets easily from the bus driver. Unfortunately, we did not find the ship so well because the provider was not on the ticket. So ask directly on the bus. Gladly again! Great value for money.

An easy way to get acquainted with the city. The audio was informative. Be sure to grab a pair of earphones before heading upstairs or use your own. Wouldn't recommend it as a means of transport if you need to arrive somewhere by a specific time. Relax and try to keep in mind that they aren't responsible for the weather or delays due to traffic.
