The bus ride was super with a very detailed audio, I had a problem getting a bus stop but as soon as i go the local partner on chat they quickly directed me to the next stop and I hoped in, also make sure when you alight you have your 1 hr cruise tickets, i did not pick mine but got them again through the help of the chat services, if you love the Paris night lights take a booking that later in the evening.

The tour by bus was very nice and you could hear a lot of information. you have seen all the sights without much effort. However, that did not work so well with the tickets. I had already booked from home and then had online tickets with a code to scan on the phone. Unfortunately, the staff at the bus stops could not scan the code so we had to drive to the office. Although this was on the bus route but there in the office they could not scan the code of my ticket and we lost a lot of time because it took longer until we finally had the tickets and could start the bus tour properly.

To try

It was a wonderful experience. Both the bus ride and the cruise. Pay attention only to a few things: - if you have an electronic voucher, go to the Big Bus office located on Avenue de l'Opera, because the portable readers of the employees you find on the buses DO NOT read them. - attention to the choice of the bus. Some take the RED route and pass by the main attractions of the center; others make the BLUE path that remains decidedly more decentralized (Montmartre and the whole upper part of Paris). - the best view can be enjoyed from the panoramic floor, but obviously it is always crowded .. so hurry up! Very nice overall. With the right precautions I definitely recommend making this experience.
