  • First Time Touring in Paris

    "Excellent way to get to see Paris and the highlights. Three separate routes that covers most of the highlights. Buy the combined night tour/day pass especially in December to see the lights of the season.
    Has good narration in many languages. Drivers are friendly and helpful. Be aware that the evening tour does have an assigned date and we were unable to change the date to better serve us. Unless we had asked at the main office at the beginning of the Red/Blue line, we would not have know.

    Great tour

    Was approached by a staff named Gerard outside the Eiffel Tower. He explained everything very well, showed us how to do everything, and was clear and thorough.

Verdict

With special offers for children, Foxity proves to be a family-friendly Paris sightseeing bus service. Also, Paris Foxity Sightseeing Tour offers the most affordable deals for bus tours of the French capital. That makes it an ideal option for budget travelers.

With pre-recorded commentaries in 9 languages, you are likely to enjoy the tour with a narrative in a language you understand the best. Finally, many of Foxity's buses are wheelchair accessible.

Is the Paris Foxity Sightseeing Tour right for me?

The Foxity Bus Tour is ideal for newcomers to Paris since it offers a quick 2-hour tour. Also, you will get around with this provider fairly fast because of the limited number of available stops by a hop-on hop-off tour. That is, if you are comfortable with less frequent arrivals of buses. However, if you travel on a budget, the Foxity Bus sightseeing tour offers a fair compensation with more affordable prices than the competing providers.
