This is not a tour boat but allows you to hop on or off at the major attractions lining the Seine so ideal for those who do not wish to walk as far as we did. The times between stops are clearly marked at the ticket booths so you can check you journey time easily. Very helpful crew who are... More

It is easy to hop on and off and explore Paris further. The staff was also very helpful in giving direction to attractions and train stations. Well... More

We purchased the 2-day pass for 19 Euro and cruised up and down the river at will. It was a great, relaxing way to travel between destinations. There were always seats available and there was never a shortage of sights to see while we rested our weary feet.

Bought the ticket online. Did not receive it via email, only a receipt. At the booth the woman had to phone to check that she is allowed to issue a ticket to me. Showed my passport as well as credit card with which I paid and then she issued the ticket. it drizzled throughout the day and the covered boat... More

The two days hop-on hop-off is an excellent value for the money. It gives a great flexibility to see Paris form a different angle and this is the only way to see the Statue of Liberty.

We used this service to get along that stretch of the Seine on a recent visit. The 2 day pass is brilliant value. The water buses are punctual, clean and a great way to see that part of the city. You can hop on and off right outside the attractions. Would highly recommend.

It was a very pleasant experience all along the Seine river, for 17 euros a day (hop on hop off) and for 2 euros more, for 02 days! It worth it!

Batobus river taxis are great. Eleven stops along the Seine, a boat every 25 min, helpful staff to guide you. We had a two day pass, purchased at one of the booths at each stop. We hopped on and off to see the Louve, Notradam, Saint-Chapelle, the Eiffel Tower etc. Most landmarks are withing a block or two of the... More

- We traveled as a couple and bought the ticket from the counter itself. - Batobus covers most the popular landmarks on its trip (eg: Notre Dame, Jardines, Louvre, Eiffel Tower etc) - We used it to go from one tourist attraction to another as most of the popular places are along the Siene. - As we used Batobus, we...

This is a kind of hop-on hop-off boat without a tourist guide. It´s very useful if you intend to visit the tourist attractions and also enjoy a boat ride on the river.
