L'Open Bus Tour, Paris: 8 reviews and 12 photos
The bus tour I would recommend is L'Open Tour: http://www.ratp.info/touristes/index.php?langue=en&rub=decouvrir&cat=open-tour
It's 29 euros for a 1 day ticket which on the face of it may seem expensive but it's a very good way to see a lot in a short space of time. There are four different routes covering a very large area and you can literally hop on and off between them so whilst I'm not sure if it goes directly to the Gare du Nord I'm certain you'd be able to pick it up somewhere quite near there and you can buy your ticket on board the bus - you don't have to go to an office or 'start' point. I prefer to walk so was initially a bit reluctant to spend this much on a bus ticket but I was completely converted - you get an excellent perspective on so many places and can listen to the commentary or not as you choose.
For those with a little more time, the 2 day ticket at 32 euros is even better value.
