Two days in Paris and one of the highlights was traveling down the Seine on the Batobus which was not too overcrowded and very good value for a 2 day pass

Great way to get between sights in Paris by boat and see the lights at night. Being able to hop on and off at the major attractions was nice and not crowded. Would recommend this as a relaxing way to get around.

With four days in Paris, we found the best value was the 2-day Batobus ticket, with unlimited travel up and down the Seine. At just 9 Euro per day per person, it is an excellent value. We used the Batobus for our large family group, giving everyone the chance to set their own pace and hop on and off where... More

Took the batobus cruise because we couldn't find the dock for the bigger ships like beauttix. Good thing was that you can hop on for unlimited ride for what the 1 day ticket was worth. The ride was pretty slow, but the multiple docks at places of interests enabled people to take it like a taxi. No shed and it... More

We missed that salient point when purchasing our tickets, so caveat emptor. Still the Batobus is a great way to see many of the sights along the river and will save your feet from a lot of walking.

This is not the typical sightseeing boats you see on the Seine River with open air top and rows of seats. It's a small round-shaped over crowded glass-top river "bus" with views obstructed by glass roof structures and their big logo and icons decal stuck on the glass. What's the point of having glass windows and roofs, if you can't... More

Get on and get off at about 6 dtops on the river from the Eiffel tower to jardin de plants. Ss the boat wss low down on the river the views were obscured, better to have o by bus snd see the sites properly. No information given ss you journey along.
