We planned on using the Batobus to get us around the tourist sites our first two days in Paris. We were meeting tours at Notre Dame, the Louvre, wanted to climb the Eiffel tower and visit the Jardins des Plantes. Batobus seemed like the perfect solution. Our first afternoon in Paris, we stopped at the nearest booth and purchased 2... More

A scenic way to get to the major tourist attractions around Paris. The hop on/hop off service between 8 major stops is a great way to visit and the wait for a boat doesn't take long. We purchased a 2 day pass which was sufficient for us.

Great hop on and hop off service with frequent boats (every 12 minutes) to 8 key stops. Friendly service that takes approximately 10 mins per stop.

The Batobus is more of a taxi service than a riverboat cruise, but it's a great cheap(er) way to cruise the Seine. I recommend the two-day pass, which ran about 18 euros (not sure of the exact fee), only slightly more than the one-day pass. Ticket holders have unlimited on-off privileges. There are convenient stops near the major Paris attractions,... More

wished we would have used it more. Get a multiple day pass and build your visit around its convenience. It really works, in spite of the rude passengers.

This is a hop on hop off service, convenient for a number of attractions including Notre Dame, the Louvre and the Eiffel Tower. A one day pass is 16 euros or a 2 day pass is 18 euros.

I like the idea of Batobus. You may choose a one way trip around Paris and admire this beautiful city from Seine. Just find one of its stop near the Seine, buy a ticket, and get on a boat. The one way tour takes about 1.5 hours, but it was worth. However, you may use Batobus as a hop on-off... More

We bought 2 day passes and found this a fun and easy way to get around sites, even with waiting a little while for services. Very close access to major sights - saves walking and is a tour in itself. Highly recommended.

just want to cruise the river and hop on/off? It's great but just do not rely on it for actual timely transportation because it doesn't run too frequently.
