Was hoping to find a tour on the river but this was the first boat stop we came by and our legs were aching. It's just a bus with several stops, no information about the sights at all. It did say this when buying the tickets so we weren't disappointed just would have preferred in advance to have known where... More

A perfect way to make a soft tour with a baby (2 years old) and a stroller. I strongly recommend it instead of trying to do everything using the subway and walking, as we were doing.

This has to be the most efficient way to get around Paris. We purchased a 2-day pass which served us well. We hopped on and off at our leisure, and enjoyed it immensely. The only problem we had was initially finding the Batobus boarding site at St Germain des Pres. The street signage is not clear but once we were... More

We decided to use this mode of travel to the main attractions. We started at the Eiffel Tower. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Lovely trip to the Louvre. When it started to rain, the staff promptly closed the roof panels. Used the Batobus ticket for two days and thoroughly enjoyed this experience.

If you want to get the best view of Paris At all times for a reasonable travel price then I would recommend buying the one day hop on hop off batobus ticket!! The ticket is valid for the whole day and you can jump on and off as many times as you want. Great for sightseeing and being dropped off... More

We did a 2 day pass for the Batobus. They start from 10am, last one is at 9.30pm from the Eiffel Tower. It takes about an hour to go the full circular route. You can get on and off at any of the 8 stops. All stops are at the main attractions...lourve, d'orsay, the tower, notre dame, hotel de ville,... More

Easy to use and a relaxing option, prams push straight on. Ticket man spoke excellent English and was keen to make sure we understood we could use the same ticket to get on or of at any of the stops as much as we wanted.

This was the perfect way to see the sights we wanted to see without having to walk all over Paris. The boat stopped at all the right places, including the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre and Notre Dame.

Do not leave Paris without a trip on the Seine. Take that trip on the Batobus. It's a hop-on hop-off public boat, which does a loop around the river, from (say) Jardin des Plantes (left bank) to Hotel de Ville (right bank) to Louvre to Champs Elysées to Eiffel Tower (left bank) to Musee D'Orsay to Saint Germain des Prés...

We used the Batobus on the two day ticket, €19, on a Sunday and Monday. Work out what you want to see, and it is a great way to relax your mind and feet between attractions. The only negative is that the street level entrances have little signage, so make sure you grab a map! It is not fast, but... More
