Nice tour with recorded audio guide. I liked the concept. If you go on the top deck of the bus when the weather is cold, the seats on the front near the windows should be less cold (they were taken when we did the tour). I would plan this in the beginning of your visit, as it gives you a nice overview and an idea of what you would like to see later.

It was a great experience. Our guide was very enthusiastic asking lots of questions and keeping the kids engaged throughout. She speaks in French but made the extra effort to say a few things in English to our son who doesn’t understand French. We also learned a few things and got to see all the attractions.

L'expérience en bus était super on passe dans tous les endroits touristiques de la capitale c'est vraiment sympa ! La visite guidée sur smartphone complète bien l'experience, les commentaires des guides sont intéressants et l'application est très simple d'utilisation. Je recommande fortement

Very fun activity, we didn't waist time, they were very efficient. My kids loved it.

Beautiful tour with our driver JEJE! A nice and very relaxing way to see Paris.
