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.
