This is a jump on and jump off boat service on the Seine through Paris is a brilliant affair. Passes are good for the whole day so you really get your money's worth and it stops at many of Paris's "must see" attractions. One can visit Notre Dame, The Eiffel Tower, The Hotel de Ville, ect.....They run frequently and it... More

This nautical experience is an economical way to view Paris highlights from an unusual viewpoint. By combining a metro pass and a Batobus pass it is easy to get around this great city. The two-day pass is very little more than the one-day pass and allows you to space out your time on the water with visits to tourist sites... More

I had thought travelling along the Seine would be a lovely way to visit the Eiffel Tower, (we are staying near Notre Dame), unfortunately didn't research batobus as well as. I should have. We went down along the Seine near Notre Dame to get tickets etc, but couldn't find the stop, walked to the louvre thinking we'd find that stop... More

Really enjoyed taking 14 people on Batobus experience last week. You can hop on hop off at all the logical places along the central part of the Seine. It gives you the chance to explore or just sit and watch Paris go by. The boats run every 20 minutes and we were in a short queue which was handled effectively... More

The flexibility of hopping on and off made this a great way to get around. This was a lovely way to see Paris on a budget.

We chose to use this as we were travelling with kids who had chosen sights to see in Paris covered by the stops on the Batobus and they wanted a boat trip. They are 6 and 10 years and would not have been interested in the commentary. This was perfect and satisfied many items off their list of things to... More

The website said boats arrive every 10 to 15 minutes. In reality it is 20 to 25 minutes. Between the wait and the slow speed, we were better off walking. An expense I'd like to have back!

...Don't bother buying your tickets in advance online. We did this before our trip thinking it would be the quicker option and we could skip the queues. However, we still had to queue up with our confirmation print outs in order to get it exchanged for a ticket, and this process took even longer because staff had to search for... More

A great way to move around Paris and see the city from the water. We utilized the Batobus for a single day and took a round trip first to see the sights then hopped on and off as we need. This also works as a bit of downtime and rest between attractions. Revere is no commentary on the bus, so... More
