This is a hop on hop off service, convenient for a number of attractions including Notre Dame, the Louvre and the Eiffel Tower. A one day pass is 16 euros or a 2 day pass is 18 euros.

I like the idea of Batobus. You may choose a one way trip around Paris and admire this beautiful city from Seine. Just find one of its stop near the Seine, buy a ticket, and get on a boat. The one way tour takes about 1.5 hours, but it was worth. However, you may use Batobus as a hop on-off... More

We bought 2 day passes and found this a fun and easy way to get around sites, even with waiting a little while for services. Very close access to major sights - saves walking and is a tour in itself. Highly recommended.

just want to cruise the river and hop on/off? It's great but just do not rely on it for actual timely transportation because it doesn't run too frequently.

Costs about $20 US for round trip. Stops at very well located points of interest. Beautiful scenic way to tour the heart of Paris. Highly recommend but...we were on a boat with plexiglass top and the sun popped out. It did not take long and we were cooking. No food, drink or restrooms. Great way to move around but, bare... More

Our group only had a limited time in Paris so I researched options and we decided on the Batobus. We purchased our tickets right before getting on board, at Notre Dame. (If you are getting on at Notre Dame, the Batobus station/stop is across the river from Notre Dame). We never had to wait for the boats more than 5... More

If you would like to see the famous places and buildings in the city centre, best is if you jump on a BatoBus. It's not a sightseeing boat, it's like a bus on water and goes around the Seine from 10am until 21:30 daily. You can catch one in every 15-20 minutes. 1 day ticket is €16, for 2 days... More

Very easy to hop on and hop off, visiting key points and then sitting on the boat for a nice little cruise round. Spend a day if you have it. Summer hours are good for that. Helped our sore feet and we covered a lot of ground for some first time visitors to get a feel for this beautiful city!... More

Most of the batobus boats have glass roofs which are dirty and scratched. There is limited outside area without seats. The day was not really hot, in the low twenties, but due to the glass roof there is limited shade in the boat and it gets really hot.

Once you find one of the 8 stops this is great way to see main attractions near Seine and not have some one rabbiting on in your ear with things you can learn for yourself if you read. Disappointed it was only open until 1 on Sunday 13 July and 14 July which is fine for national holiday but meant... More
