After a wander around the village where every street is full of charm and history, the tour takes you to Monaco, for a visit to the Cathedral where Princess Grace is buried, the Palace and for a drive along the Formula One race circuit.

A ticket for you to visit to the Montparnasse Tower is included as it is at one of the stops of the Hop on Hop Off route and the view from here will definitely blow you off your feet! From the 4 routes of the Hop on Hop off bus, the Montparnasse Tower is on the Montparnasse - Saint-Germain Route and get off at Montparnasse stop, other than the great view... This pass can be used on any of the routes, they can spend their time seeing the places covered on the Paris Grand tour route which is the most popular route and when they get down at Notre Dame instead of taking the Paris Grand Tour bus, they can hop in the Montparnasse - St Germain bus and then get down at the Pantheon, spend some time there or just continue to the Tower for some best views of Paris!!
