Good way to see popular areas of central Paris

Hop of and hop off service means you can plan a day or two with a longer pass. Could do with more outdoor seating and the glass roof could do with more of a clean but its a great... read more

After visiting the Eiffel tower just cross the street and at the river Seine you will find the hop on hop off by boat experience. 2 adults and 2 children for the special price of 40 euro's. There are 8 stops and every 25 minutes there is a new boat. When the boat just passed you might have to wait... More

Great value. Can hop on and off all day. Brilliant way to travel between all the main attractions. Much more pleasant than using the metro. Very easy to use. Wish I'd used this on previous trips.

We bought a 2 day pass - 16 euros for 1 day or 18 for 2 days. We used it both days! A boat comes along every 20 minutes and there is also a brief commentary, but it is quite hard to understand. There are 8 stops that go in a circular route, so very convenient. Some boats have upper... More

This is a convenient, clean service which allows you to go by boat between a number of tourist stops in Paris. The service is regular and punctual. We found it a bit hot on a warm day. It was a bit cooler on the (small) rear deck, but there is no seating there, so it is a bit tiring. There... More

I actually had all the information I had before buying tickets for Batobus; that there is no one who explains/describes anything we see along the trip, that it has just stops which are really too touristic such as Musee de Orsay or Eiffel tower. It was like a shared taxi ride from one place to another without any specialty. If... More

What a great way to see Paris. We were going to book a boat tour, but we found that the conductor gave everyone a running commentary through out the trip on the sites as we passed by. Some bits of advice though stay on the bus and do a full circuit to see all the sites. Talk to your hotel... More

We used the Batobus on Sunday to get around the city...a great way to see the sights...especially on cold day like it was! There are 8 stop off points, and we took advantage of two of them, to get off and have a wander round. The boat was clean, and the crew were polite and friendly. Deffo worth the money.

Hard to locate due to poor signage and extremely over priced as you can only buy a day pass @ €16.50! You can't just do a single or return trip!? We only wanted to go from the Louvre down the river to the iffel tower.... Hardly worth €33!

A good way to see the city and hop on hop off at 8 stops all day,16e for one day 18E for two, so good value. No commentary. if you want a cruise plenty to choose from but they start and stop Eiffel Tour, these seem better value if you want to do other things en route. Highly recommend.
