The tour is operated by Big Bus Paris.
Paris is a capital city and therefore political events, demonstrations and celebrations can disrupt the route at any time, especially during summer and at weekends. While every effort is made to ensure a smooth and frequent service there may be delays, reduced frequency and route alternations due to traffic and road closures.
One third of the buses offer space for wheelchairs however there is no ramp for getting on and off the bus.
