This visit takes you around the island with the old part of Strasbourg as well as out to the European Parliament buildings, and lasts about an hour. It also goes through 2 locks. The boat takes over a hundred people and is covered. The seats are quite comfy. Each seat has a headset with a commentary in a variety of... More

A great way to travel all the way up to the European Parliament with a commentary to fill in some information. On a sunny day it is surprisingly hot and you really need a sun hat and I suggest going to the free loos between the museums and the cathedral before you set off as there are no toilets on... More

The cruise was very informational and we were able to see parts of Strasbourg that we never would have seen on foot. It was also interesting going through the locks. Well worth the time to see this beautiful city by boat!

I am the kind of person who enjoys the big-picture. I love maps, history and seeing how the parts of something all fit together. Batorama did this for me with regards to Strasbourg. The cruise navigates around the island that is the centre of Strasbourg with a half hour tangent to the European parliament and back. This lets you get... More

The Strasbourg Bateau Mouche is something not to miss while in town. The trip takes you along the canals and is narrated in a choice of four or five languages via personal headphones. [As an aside, the English version seemed to have been recorded by a Nice Canadian guy.] It's a lovely trip through history, including modern times. The boats... More

Different way to look around the city and see what is out there. Maybe try in a not sunny day. it is good after all but if it is not your type of things do not try it.

Audio commentary in English was a bit bland, simply stating facts. It needed to lighten up a bit. The views from the boat were slightly spoiled by the sun blinds on the covered canopy. Just as well there was air conditioning as it was quite hot. If the weather is dry an open boat would be better.

The ride lasted about 1 hour and seriously, I thought it was not worth it. First, there were not much narration and you are just left sitting and looking at the scenery. Second, Strasbourg is not that big and you can do the walking yourself. The only thing is that the ride took you to the European Parliament which is... More

The boat tour was very interesting. It was very relaxing to view the city by boat. The audio tour included an abundance of historical information about the city. Well worth the time and price.

We don't do boring boat trips- I can't think of anything worse than sitting on a boat floating down a short stretch of water and back again. HOWEVER the difference with the Strasbourg one is that you do a circuit and there are various locks and bridges. You get a well rounded view of the Strasbourg centre. You also get... More
