There were not describing the tour. Closed boat. Very hot inside. Everyone piled on the sunless side. One floor. Not much space on their "terrace" for pictures

Its a nice way to see Paris from the river. Also to get between different sites, this boat service is a nice alternative. I think they should put english as well into the messages given under the trip.

The hop on, hop off tickets are valid from one day up. We used ours to do a full circuit in the afternoon after three days in which we walked a lot. Good views, good info from the conductor, and a nice way to see the capital from its river.

I wanted to make the most of a very quick weekend in Paris, so I bought a day pass for the Batobus. I was able to hop on and off this riverboat at all of the attractions that I wanted to see. It made getting from one place to another quite easy. And because they run every 30 minutes, I... More

What a great way to tour Paris. A little relaxing cruise where you rest your feet between walks and exploring the attractions near the river. Don't think of the Batobus as a tour. It is a vheicle for the independent explorer who wants to spend a day or two effortlessly moving along the Seine between locations. We popped off firts... More

8 stops on the river, hop on and off as you like. One day 17 euros but 2 days 19 euros. Only drawback was the early hour at which the last boat ran during the week in September. Good value for the money.

Caught the batobus when a march of some sort blocked the roads and hence the hop on hop off bus was very delayed. Basically used it to get from Notre Dame to Eiffel Tower. Trip took almost 2 hours on the hardest wooden seats I have every had to endure. Not possible to hear the commentary over the poor quality... More

This is great value if you want to stop off several times - for 17 euro you can get on & off as many times as you want that day and there are nine stops so you can reach a large proportion of the sights fairly easily. The whole round trip takes two hours and be aware there are no... More
