Paris Pass transportation

Does this pass include the double decker red bus? I read these web sites and I swear there is double talk! I know it includes the Metro. We want to get the combo museum pass. We will be in Paris the beginning of May, 2013 for 3 days. We want to see the Louvre, D'Orsay, Notre Dame, the Marsais, Champs Elysee, Tuileries Gardens, Eiffel, etc.
Thanks for your assistance!

Hop on Hop off bus is not included on the Paris Pass, nor is the Eiffel Tower. Save money and buy the Paris Visite (does include small discount on Hop-on-hop off bus as well as 3 day Metro/bus pass) and the Paris Museum Pass separately.
Most peolpe will recommend getting a 10-pac Carnet which will cover 10 rides for 13.30 as a better transport deal.

Joanne, What you need is the Paris Museum Pass 2 days 39 euro and Le Cars Roughe 20,50 euro. The Eiffle tower is not included it's 14,50 all the way to the top. Another mode of transportation would be the Batobus 2 days 18,00 euro.
Hope this helps.

If you want to take the scenic route, you can also take a cab and enjoy the view of Paris ;) I known this app call Taxibeat that allows you to choose your driver, it's pretty helpful
Enjoy your stay!

Yes, the Paris Pass does include a Hop-On/Hop-Off bus. I'm not sure whether it's the Red ones or one of the other lines that offer HO/HO service. Whether you need everything included in the Paris Pass is something that only you can decide. Think about everything you want to do, add up the costs and then see if the Paris Pass is worth it. If you were planning to go to a bunch of museums, use the HO/HO bus, take a river cruise, do the O Chateau wine tasting and ride the bus and metro as much as possible, then it could be a good value. Otherwise, you're usually better of buying the parts you'll use separately.
