PARIS open top bus tours?

We are doing a quick trip to Paris when my mother-in-law comes to visit next month. She's 72 and to make it easier for her to see all the major sites I thought it might be fun to take one of the Open Top Bus Tours like we do when we take guests to London. See all the sights from the bus and then go back to the ones that we really want to explore.

We're staying at one of the Disney Hotels and plan to take the train into Paris for 2 days.

Can anyone recommend a specific Bus Tour to us?

My husband and I (in our fifties) have traveled to Paris several times, and we like the red buses that are easily boarded at most sights such as the Eiffel Tower. They are hop-on, hop off, and if you read Rick's Paris guide book, you will be able to interpret the symbols telling which bus has a live guide and which ones have audio earphones. We prefer the earphones, because they are easier to hear above the street noises and the chatter of fellow tourists. Enjoy your trip!

Consider, in addition, the Batobus. It is the boat shuttle (hop on hop off) that travels along the Seine. It stops at various locations. Stay on and do a round trip while relaxing and viewing the sights.
