The ride is really good, with a lot of stops. You can get off and on the boat in every stop, many times you want. The only bad thing is that the guide don't speak enough.

There is a boat every 10 minutes and stops in all main attractions: The Eiffel Tower, Musse D'Orsay, Saint Germain Des Pres, Notre Dame, Jardin Des Plantes, Hotel de Ville, Louvre and Champs Elysees. There are only tourists on the boat, therefore feels quite safe. An excellent way to see Paris. We caught the boat near the Eiffel Tower and... More

Nice and comfortable sightseeing. The boat is spacious, clean and all glass, so it is convenient to view the sites it passes. The only problem: no toilets in it! The price is also reasonable ...

We were going to go on a normal sightseeing cruise when we saw the Batobus option of hopping on and off at all the major landmarks. We got a two-day pass just incase and couldn't be happier! Great value for money - so easy to get around a quite quick too. Definitely recommend!

The Batobus was the best hop-on, hop-off tour I have ever been on. It dropped you at all of the most well-known stops in Paris and made it super easy to see most of the city. The boats were clean and you never had to wait long for the next one to come. It is an incredible value for the... More

We used the Batobus ferry service for one day when we were in Paris recently. The ferry takes you to many of the major attractions in Paris and after spending a couple of days getting around on the Metro this was a pleasant change

Batobus is inexpensive at 18 Euro per person for two days. It has 8 stops around paris. A fantastic hop-on, hop-off ferry service all the sites around the Seine. A very good deal. There are no food or bathroom facilities on board but you don't need them as you can get off at the next stop.

I love the batobus. You can get to all the main sites without walking although it's nice to meander the crowds get hectic and this is a great way to see Paris, you understand the significance of the Seine. Take a batobus trip at least ONCE!

There are several great reasons to ride the Batobus. It is perhaps the most inexpensive way to cruise along the Seine. Its hop-on, hop-off policy allows you to debark whenever something catches your interest so that you can explore at your leisure. It allows you to see all the beautiful bridges up close and personal. And the monuments that you've... More

It was great having a 2hs tour by the Seine, admiring all the majestic buildings from a different perspective. It goes all the from the Eiffel tower to the Jardin des Plantes and back making 8 stops. It goes around the Île de la Cité, which is the very heart and begining of Paris. The sight from the Seine river... More
