Sightseeing bus routes in Paris

Explore Paris aboard a prestige coach, a minibus or the open top deck of a double-decker bus

Tootbus Paris - Paris by night couché de soleil

Whether it be in a large luxury coach with air conditioning; in an equally comfortable minibus; sitting on the top level of an open-topped double-decker sightseeing bus or on board a local tourist train...

Whether it’s for just 2 hours or a full day; you can choose to visit Paris with guides that speak several languages, with cultural commentary or on a themed tour. Audio-guides placed at your disposal dispense recorded commentary in many different languages (up to 14). In minibuses, the drivers can also speak different languages. Tours are scheduled for day and night, summer and winter… and provide yet another way to make the most of Paris.

Our information pages below will give you details of the programmes offered by each excursion supplier and you can book the package of your choice either directly with them or through the Paris Convention and Visitors Bureau: a morning, an afternoon or a full day, with meals included or without. The same excursion companies also offer tours to the majority of places to see in the Ile-de-France region.
