Hi Ehsan,
Nice to meet you ;)

I think it's worth to take the "Paris Visite" ticket for you. You will find all details here in English : https://www.ratp.fr/en/titres-et-tarifs/paris-visite-travel-pass. Unfortunately, there is no group tickets as it's the case in Munich. This ticket is for 5 days, there is no possibilities for 6 days, but you can combine for the 6th day with the "Batobus" and have river trip on the Seine: http://www.batobus.com/en/batobus-pass.html which is also a nice way to visit Paris.

Enjoy your stay in Paris!
Florence.

Hi Eshan,

Since you arrive on Wednesdayconsider buying Navigo Pass then , a carnet of single-use Paris transit tickets (book of ten or twenty) that are good for the entire Paris Metro system and any trains/trams/buses in zone 1, or day passes called Ticket Mobilis.

Hi Ehsan,

You have basically 2 options, which one to choose will depend on what are you planning to do every day.
If you're planning to use metro/bus/tram/RER 4 times or more - per person - in ONE day, then the most convenient option for you is called: MOBILIS (zone 1-2)
If you're going to use the public transport 3 times or less in a day I would recommend you to get single trip tickets (if you buy a pack of 10 or 20 together is more convenient than getting them one by one...).

If you're feeling adventurous you can also get a Velib (bike) pass. This will cost you 1,70€ for a day or 8€ for 7 days. You will have 30 min. allowance to use the bikes without any extra charge. If you go over that time limit the system will start charging your credit card. The solution is to use the bikes for short periods of time and return it to any station before the 30 min. pass.
Careful, the bike system holds a 150€ guarantee fee from your account, this amount goes back to your account once the validity of your ticket is over and sometimes a couple of days later.

I hope this helps ;)
