    Big Bus Hop-On, Hop-Off Tour

    Our local partners do everything in their power to ensure the tours runs to schedule.  However, Paris is a functioning city and weather, traffic and events may occasionally cause disruption.

    One-third of the buses offer space for wheelchairs however there is no ramp for getting on and off the bus.

    Paris Museum Pass

    Exceptional closing hours and free admissions (strikes, national holidays, etc.) will neither prolong the duration of the pass, nor entitle the holder to a refund of one or more days.

    The Pass gives the right to only 1 entry to each site, regardless of the duration of the Paris Museum Pass.

    The “skip-the-line” aspect of the pass cannot always be guaranteed in certain sites operating an access system that requires the production of a free ticket or when there are security checks in place or limited regulated access for security reasons.

    Additional info

    The confirmation voucher includes the local activity operator’s contact details. They’re a nice bunch, and will happily answer any logistical questions you may have. Please give them a call at least 24 hours before your organised activity to reconfirm.
