The Batobus is a great way to see the buildings that border the Seine. It's basically a circular toour that stops at convenient locations for most of the major attractions. We boarded on the South side by Notre Dame and took the "bus" to the Eiffel Tower.

We booked with Batobus before we went out to Paris.....got a 2 day unlimited pass which was great as we could get off at all the main attractions and jump back on whenever we wanted. A must for the tourist

On a rather wet day we decided to take the batobus (16 euros for one adult) to visit some attractions. It was a great idea and saved us getting too wet. We hopped off to see St Germain area, Notre Dame, the Louvre area and Eiffel Tower.Because of the rain we had to leave the Botanical garden for another day.... More

We did the 2 day hop on hop off tour our first two days in Paris - a great price/value. This is more a water taxi than a guided tour with well marked/located stops at all of the best attractions off of the Seine - Notre Dame, Louvre, D'Orsay, Eiffel Tower, etc. The areas/highlights are announced but there is not...

Our hotel was close to the Eiffel Tower which is 1 of the 8 stops for the Batobus. All the main stops are connected to major tourist attractions/museums. We used it several days...bought a one day ticket and subsequently bought a 2 day ticket. The 2 day ticket is a real bargain for 18 Euro versus a 16 Euro one... More

i needed to sit down and rest so we got on the boat. It was a nice leisurely tour of the river. I wished I'd felt better because there were some great places to get off and explore. When I go back I hope to try again!

The 2 day pass costs only 2 Euros more than the one day so that makes it a pretty good value. Great views from the river with stops at some of the biggest attractions in the city, Eiffel Tower, Louvre, Notre Dame...

We were in Paris with our three kids and the Batobus was a great way to get around. It was a much more pleasant and relaxing experience than the subways and it had enough stops that it was fairly easy to get around to all of the major sites. It can get hot when the weather is warm, since it's... More

The Batobus was a great way to travel between some of the top sites in paris with eight stops along the seine including the Eiffel tower, Notre Dame and the Louvre and at a reasonable 40 euros for a family of four it was a great way to see Paris whilst relaxing from all the walking.
