Easy to use and busses every few minutes so no long wait at any stop. Got to see much more than I would have without the hop on hop off.

I thoroughly enjoyed the visits to the emblematic sites, a way to get to know a little bit of Paris and with the boat ride on the Seine River it was a wonderful experience to see this incredible city and its very attentive people, even on the eve of the Olympic Games.

Fantastic bus and boat tour combination. Took in all the sites, great frequency of buses, excellent narration on whats around, careful drivers and just generally a great experience. Highly recommend this tour, and if I am lucky enough to go back to Paris, I would do the bus tour again.

Bus frequency and coverage was good. Only thing that was bit disappointing was that routes in their app were slightly different than actual ones (not sure if that's due to Olympics or whether it's just outdated info in their app) so tracking buses in real-time was bit misleading. Also they should consider informing guests that Louvre museum is closed every Tuesday so that people can plan accordingly. Other than those trivial things it was awesome experience.

I had the chance to visit many important places in one day, so that was great! They need to improve the attention on clients, many of us had no idea of where we are since it is our first time in the city or country.
