I would recommend it once you are tired to walk around and want to be sitted for a while and just get off to take some pictures at one fixed point. It is also nice to be outside deck for fresh air. Disadvantages: no toilette inside the boat, the drinks machine was out of order (so, nothing to drink or... More

We travelled on the Batobus boat, a full circuit took approximately 1hr 40 mins. We joined the first boat at 10am on the Sunday morning and it was quiet but it did get busier as the morning went on. There is no commentary or guided tour, but it is easy to use as a bus service for the River Seine.... More

Jump on and off as many times as you like. Link it to an open top bus ride. whatever way suits, you will find the experience well worth the money.

Ok, so if you want to reach parts of Paris well away from the Seine then clearly Batobus falls a bit short of the mark. However, if you want to visit notable landmarks close to the river then this is a great inexpensive hop on-hop off service, especially if you get a pass for two or more days. Also, if... More

batobus is a good way to cover a lot of paris without walking the entire way. the ability to jump on and off all day allows you to see various parts of the city form above ground.

I cannot express how wonderful this service is. Floating along the Siene, it will take you to all the major attractions for an extremely reasonable price. I have been to Paris twice, and both times I used this service because it is an easy way to make sure you see all of the major attractions

I tried quite a lot of this tours, and I have to say this is the best one (in my opinion) ! 1 : it's one of the less expensive (especially wihth the 2 days pass) 2 : hop in- hop off is a really nice option, you almost never have this choice... 3 : the best for last :... More

In reading some of the other reviews of this I am surprised. We absolutely hated it. They tell you at the window "15 minutes" until next boat. An hour later, you are still waiting. The standard answer is 15 minutes and we never had a boat show up any faster than 45 minutes wait. Would never do it again.

I highly recommend the Batobus!! This makes getting around Paris to see the main attractions, The Louvre, Eiffel Tower, ect. so much easier than grabbing a cab(traffic is awful), bus or the tube! It drops you off right where you need to be and when you are done, you hop back on and take it to your next destination! So... More
