City Sightseeing’s bright red buses are easy to spot on the streets of Paris! The company offers two hop-on hop-off routes and a boat tour if you decide to go for a bus and boat combo ticket. Their tickets are available in 24- and 48-hour versions and are the ideal choice for a long weekend of exploring.
Red Route:This 14-stop route visits the must-see sights on both the north and south sides of the Seine. It starts at the Musée du Louvre and loops around the Eiffel Tower before heading north to the Arc de Triomphe and the Opéra Garnier. Buses leave every 30 minutes from 9.30 am and the full loop takes about two hours to complete. Audio commentary is available in 10 languages.
Blue Route:This 5-stop route takes you up the hill to Montmartre, stoping at the Opéra Garnier, the Gare du Nord, Sacré-Cœur, and the Moulin Rouge. Buses depart every 30 minutes from 10 am and the full loop takes about an hour. Audio commentary is available in English, Spanish, and French.
River Cruise:The cruise, which is included in the combo tour, departs from the Port de Suffren every 30 minutes from 10.30 am. It’s a panoramic tour, so there won’t be a chance to hop on or off, and the whole tour takes about an hour. Commentary is available in English, Spanish, and French, and descriptive brochures are available in Portuguese, Italian, German, Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Russian, and Arabic.
