Our history

Since 2014, RATP Dev has developed hop-on hop-off sightseeing services with open top double-deckers in several attractive cities across the world. All sightseeing activities worldwide are part of a dedicated Business Unit, and the sightseeing team mainly operate in 4 subsidiaries spread over Paris, London, Windsor, Bath, Bristol, Cardiff and Brussels under one common brand: Tootbus. We offer customers the opportunity to discover iconic cities across Europe through hop-on, hop-off routes and themed tours, aboard a fleet double-decker buses. We are around 500 passionate and committed employees in summer season, who provide high standards of service, dynamism and reliability to our customers. We are highly supportive of ‘green’ tourism solutions and are continuously looking for ways of reducing the impact our operations have on the environment. We launched the 1st 100% sightseeing green fleet in Brussels in 2021 and we will continue to convert our fleet in other cities.
