A city tour of Paris is a great idea if you are in Paris for the weekend or if you are taking a short city trip with the whole family. You can discover Paris in an open-top double-decker bus, by boat during a cruise on the Seine, by bicycle on a family-friendly city tour or privately in a duck. But what kind of city tour is the right one?
Sightseeing Tour Hop on hop off Paris
Hop on hop off - the classic bus tour through the city. In Paris there are several operators that offer tours in double-decker buses. The big advantage: the city tour by bus is ideal to get a rough overview of the most famous and popular sights of Paris. With a day ticket you have the possibility to get in and out as you like and not miss any highlight. The tours run on different lines through the metropolis and so you will see up to 40 other monuments of Paris besides the city's landmarks like the Eiffel Tower and the Louvre. Thus, those who want to explore the city at their own pace and stop at as many stations as possible will make the right choice with a bus tour. The highlight for many tourists is the city tour at night, when the Parisian landmarks shine in the evening lights. Even on rainy days and in bad weather in Paris, the hop on hop off city tours are considered a successful alternative to sightseeing on foot. Although photos lose some of their charm through the window pane, children in particular enjoy dry feet. By the way: All hop on hop off sightseeing tours in Paris have audio commentaries in German, so you can follow all information and tips about the city, sights, restaurants and much more in German.
City tours by boat on the Seine
Paris is a wonderful place to discover on foot. Especially the picturesque quarter Montmartre or the Jewish quarter Marais are full of small alleys that invite you to a discovery tour on foot. During a boat trip on the Seine, however, you will see many of the Parisian sights as they are known from the guidebook. Especially when the weather is fine in Paris, an excursion on the Seine is worthwhile. On the water in sunshine: that's how sightseeing is fun! Various ship fleets offer at different times of the day and night German speaking city tours on water. Many of the offers can be combined with a romantic dinner on the Seine or a visit to the Eiffel Tower as well as a bus tour. The combination of a 2-day ticket hop on hop off with a bus and boat from the provider Cityvision is particularly favourable. But if you prefer something more luxurious, you can book the complete package: city tour, lunch in the Eiffel Tower and boat trip! The prices for boat tours in Paris vary greatly. They are available both as low budget tours and as luxury tours with a special dress code for a particularly romantic night in Paris.
City tour in a different way - by bike or in a duck
A round trip by bus or water is not always the right choice. Paris wouldn't be Paris if it didn't also offer some more unusual sightseeing tours. If you are less interested in a public tour and prefer to travel in a private, authentic atmosphere, you can climb aboard the famous Duck with a private guide and discover the hidden corners of Paris. Discover Paris as the Parisians love it, far away from most tourists. Look forward to a German-language city tour by night or day, during which you will have time for numerous photo stops and authentic memories in a private atmosphere. If you like to be sporty and want to keep moving even on holiday or have eaten too much of the French cheese, you can visit Paris by bike. On the German speaking bike tours you will experience the real Paris in small groups.
A sightseeing tour in a double-decker is a great way to discover the sights and attractions of Paris in a short time and in a comfortable atmosphere, especially with children or in rainy weather. Those who like it sporty book the round trip by bike and travellers who prefer to avoid large groups book a private city tour, for example in the duck. Our tip: A round trip does not necessarily have to be expensive. Compare the various offers and prices and take advantage of the combination deals including tickets for the Eiffel Tower or a show at the legendary Moulin Rouge. If you can't make up your mind, you can save money by taking the public bus, line 67, ashore to visit the sights and book a leisurely boat trip to round off the day. Especially clever: the Paris Pass! With a 2-day ticket or a ticket for 4 days you get free travel on the metro in Paris, a hop on hop off city tour with Big Bus and numerous discounts to galleries, museums and sights in Paris, where you also pass the queues. We offer various sightseeing tours in German through Paris and are happy to organize a private tour for your group.
