The batobus is a wonderful way to experience Paris, which is from the Seine! It is only on the water, that you truly see the grandeur of Notre-Dame cathedral, the varied architecture of the apartment buildings overlooking the river, and the sculptures below the many Paris bridges that you cannot see any other way. Start early, and jump off &... More

We got a pass for the boat and bus valid for 2 days for 45euro. I felt it was very worthwhile. Boats were great the bus has 4 different routes to choose from or work your way through. Took a little bit to get how it worked sorted but then it was a breeze. Would highly recommend to anyone visiting... More

This was the most perfect way to get to all of the main tourist attractions. I highly recommend getting the seats by the windows for obvious reasons! But these boats run until 7pm and arrive at the stops around every 10-20 minutes and they literally stop outside the attractions. The views along the journey are amazing. I recommend doing the...

A nice boat trip around the sites of Paris. You can hop and off all day for 14 euros very reasonable. We thoroughly enjoyed it.

We decided to purchase a day-pass for the Batobus as a more scenic way for getting around the capital. We purchased our tickets at the Eiffel Tower and used the Batobus for the rest of the day hopping on at all the main attractions. We then caught the last boat from the Latin Quarter and took it back to Champs... More

A bit expensive but it gets you to the main spots. Small area at back outside. It gives a different view of the attractions which we liked especially around the island. Got some good pics as well. Not sure I would again though...

This boat bus is a great alternative to the bustling city streets. Lovely on the Seine and pretty close to all the spots. Not busy in October and hardly had to wait. No info given so not a 'tour' as such more like a bus on the river but relaxing and great to hop on and off. Nice staff.

We opted for the day-pass for the Batobus as a more scenic option for getting around vs. taking the metro, and we were pretty glad we did. Unlimited hop-on/hop-off rides for whatever period your pass was purchased for. 1-day (€16/adult) and 2-day (€18) passes are available, alongside the unlimited-rides Batobus + Open Tour bus combos for 2-day/€45, 3-day/€49 passes.

We chose to move about Paris on the Batobus, rather than merely take a one-time Seine river cruise. Lots of fun, many stops at popular tourist attractions, and no metro pass required.

The initial review seems to have been written by an employee of Batobus. Sure it's a novel and interesting way to get around, but it's not convenient, and it doesn't take you everywhere. Waiting 20 minutes for a boat is a waste of time when you add to it the time neded to walk to the stop from wherever you've... More
