Can I use the pass on the hop on hop off buses?
You cannot use the pass to jump on and off the “Ho-Ho” buses. You will have to buy separate tickets for these. Hop on Hop off buses are a great way of seeing Paris outdoors, to understand where all the main monuments are situated in relation to each other, but we would advise you to take the metro to best move around Paris.
