This is not a guided tour, for that use Baton Mouches - but if you just need a quick and easy way to get around Paris landmarks then this works excellently. It's well priced and you can get on and off as much as you like, with another boat along within 20 minutes. It covers the main sites - Eiffel... More

I tried this service for my trip to paris, while it is not a guided tour, the boat will take u to eight Parisians land mark stations.. You can hub on and off the boat as often as u like.. Highly recommended.

Great service on the Batobus! The 2 day tickets are great value, hopping on & off the boat at the various stops is great & so easy.

This boat is reliable and we did not wait more than 5 minutes at any spot. It is covered if it rains. The only reason my review is average is that this boat is not a time saver. But if you don't want to walk everywhere it is a good option. We did the 2 day ticket and the price... More

A absolute waste of time. Our journey had a crew change in the middle of the journey. The old crew gave almost no commentary, the new crew gave more commentary which was totally lost with the poor quality PA. They appeared to be asking passemgers for a review - but only French speakers. A tourist attraction getting reviews from only... More

We enjoyed doing the boat trip on the Seine and the Batobus would be very handy if you want to hop on/hop off and see various things but it's very slow due to the stops. I think another time I'd rather do a full boat tour and then use bus/subway to attractions. The price was good though and you can... More

A great way to get an introduction to Paris as most of the major tourist attractions are located on this iconic river. Cost for a 1 day pass was 16 euro which is pretty reasonable considering you can use all day then have dinner then go on a cruise at twilight. There are plenty of stops on the round trip... More

Awesome value for money. You can easily hop on and hop off at one of the many stops and be very close to the main tourist sites and attractions. Plenty of seats inside or sit outside and enjoy the views. Even when the weather isn't that bad. The only public transport we needed to take in Paris other than the... More

If you don't have much time or you don't like to walk a lot, getting into Batobus'es ferries is definitelly for you. For only 10 euro (for student's) you can buy a ticket for whole day. ID from your university is enough, you don't need international student's card. You can get into and get off the ferry any time you... More
