If you only have a day or two to see some Paris's main attractions, Batobus might be your economical mode of transport. During summer holiday yes crowded, but waiting time is moderate, maybe I am just lucky.. Ha-ha. Look first their web site, the stops along the river though, then you can decide is it suitable for your itineraries or... More

In my opinion, this was by far the easiest way to travel to the top tourist spots in Paris. You can also link into their hop on/hop off bus service which between the two services meant you can cover the whole of the city centre attractions.

The river taxi is a bit pricey but much less then the tour boats. You can hop on and off as much as you like for the day. Staff was English speaking. There are stops at all the notable sites though we noted cues at the Eiffel Tower. It runs every 20 minutes so waits are not too bad. We... More

We used the Autobus for two days and although there is no commentary about the tourist attractions, however they do let you off the boat within walking distance of the majority of the attractions. It is also a nice relaxing way to travel between attractions.

In my opinion, this is the best way to see Paris, quick, easy, good value, hop on and off, and still allowing you to see the great views from the river, would definitely use again.

This was a reasonably priced way to travel along the Seine River and also stop and visit many of the greatest sites in Paris.

Horrible. All boats full all day, and they still refuse to give a refund. Better go walking or take the subway, don't throw your money away at Batobus.

July 28th - 29th - We booked the 2-day Seine River Hop­On Hop­Off Sightseeing Cruise in Paris through Viator with BATOBUS. Just to clarify this is a method of transportation vs. a tour of any sorts. The boats were great and the employees were fantastic. My only complaint is the boats don’t run on a fixed schedule making it hard... More

We bought a 2 day ticket and on third day used l'open tour bus. In retrospect we would have bought a combination one as the boat was rather slow albeit a good way of taking a breather. Reliable service, friendly staff and great views of Paris.

After walking around Paris for a few hours during the heat wave, we thought that using a 'bus boat' to get to our next destination would be a little cooler and a fun way to travel. After looking at the map and reading the information, we waited in line to buy tickets. Just ahead of us was a lady who... More
