I wasn't sure when we purchased the Paris Pass that we would get our money's worth out of it. Boy, was i wrong! We saw more of Paris because we had the Paris Pass than we would have otherwise. Just being able to hop on and hop off the bus whenever we wanted, not to mention the boat trip, and the many attractions that were free because we had the pass. It made our trip to Paris more enjoyable and memorable.

It was a great decision to buy the Paris Pass and I recommend it to others. The Paris Pass was very useful to our enjoyment of Paris. We used it daily and went to some places that we probably wouldn't have chosen or known about if we had not had it. Paying for all of this in advance freed us from having to constantly purchase tickets, exchange money and carry a lot of cash. We felt it was a good value and so easy to use. My advice, purchase a Paris Pass to enhance your visit.
