We took the Batobus twice to see the Effiel ,the Musee Orsay , Louvre , the Jarden PLantes and Notre Dam . Though it stops along the Siene , the stations are not well marked at all.In fact even locals do not know the service and we had to walk a bit using our intuition to see one near the... More

Where do I start with this disaster of the tour that didn't happen. My wife purchased tickets through her job and printed the vouchers to present upon arrival. Once she presented the vouchers the boat agent told her these were not the vouchers even though they clearly stated they were. After arguing with this lady she calls a supervisor and... More

On our third day in Paris we were starting to wear out from all the walking, so we bought a ticket for the Batobus. We purchased a one day hop on hop off pass on which you can ride as many and as far as you want during the day. I believe the boat has stops at seven stations along... More

We got a ticket for one day, it was €17,-. It is a nice way to see Paris from the water (Seine). There was enough space when we were there (saturday in october), at the stop of the Eiffel Tower is was busiest, but there was still enough room on the boat. Frequency is every 20 min (only in winter... More

As most of the attractions we wanted to see were along the river we chose to use the batobus to travel rather than the bus, metro or by foot. It worked perfectly for us. We started early at the Louvre and travelled to the Eiffel Tower. We got off there looked around and jumped back on to St Germain. We... More

The Batobus is a convenient way to get around and see the main sights. You can hop on and off all day with boats running around half an hour apart. This is not a guided tour or cruise so don't expect much more than an announcement of the place being stopped at. A cheap way to spend a day on... More

Good way to see the sights. It's €17 for an adult hop on and off all day. We used it more of a taxi service so it wasn't great value for money. It would be okay if you planned to use it all day though. There's on;y a tiny outside place so on a hot day the inside under the... More
