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. During busy times guests may not be able to board the first bus and may need to wait for subsequent buses.

Great experience, especially the boat hop on
We had a great time!
The service was good, however there are 2 points which I would like to comment.
1. The final service in the evening does not terminate at the starting point and this information is not given to the passangers most of them were seated thinking the bus will take the full loop and will terminate at auber. Pls inform the passangers the last stop of the bus where it will treminate.
2. some times there were too many buses coming back to back and some times it was a long wait for the next bus. Pls try to maintain consistency in the timings between the busses.
Rest the tour was good and the audio guide was very informative.
