Best Tour Bus Ever

By now, we are all too familiar with the ubiquitous double-decker tour buses that clog the streets of every significant tourist destination around the world. But these neat Parisian models from 1950 actually look like fun to ride.

Built on a Citroen truck chassis by the coach builder Currus, these pre-Space Age behemouths were operated by Groupe Cityrama until the early 1960s. I say bring them back.

    Having just returned from a holiday in Paris, we stayed at The Regina Hotel opposite The Louvre’, next to Cityrama HQ, where they had pictures of this on the windows. I’d never seen this before. Fell in love with Paris (a ride in one of these would have been the icing on the cake)! Who else but the French could have built anything so beautiful? Think Citroen DS!!
