Yes, yes... I know the Paris Metro is one of the best in the world, and it gets you everywhere, and it is so damned efficient.... However, if you are on holiday in Paris.... take the time and see the city from the river on the Batobus. A one day ticket is 17 Euro... and 2 days is just 19... More

Very interesting package when taking the 2 days hop on-hop off which costs 19€ (17€ for one day).. 9 stops from Jardin des Plantes to Beaugrenelle, from Monday to Sunday 10am to 9:30pm with a boat every 20 min, outdoor space at the back and room for bicycles So, the perfect solution to enjoy visiting the main spots of Paris.

We loved the Batobus. It is very good value for money, particularly if you take the two-day option. We had previous visited some the major attractions along the way, but used the Batobus to explore some other, lesser known attractions, such as Les jardins des plantes and the flower market. On our first little jaunt up the river, we were... More

The BatoBus is a river shuttle that travels along the Seine River and makes stops at nine key attractions along the Seine. Key stops are Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame Cathedral, Louvre, Champs Elysies and five other main attractions.. You can hop on hop off at convenient places along the way. One day or two day passes are available at a... More

The Batobus is an amazing way to see Paris from a different angle along the Seine. There is 9 different stops you can hop on and hop off as many times you like throughout the day and for €17 it's definitely worth it. The only downside to when I travelled on it, is it was very hot and sitting under... More

Quick overview: Batobus has 9 stops on a loop, boats arriving between 15-30mins apart depending on how busy they are (time set each day - we had a 20min interval day) and you can get full day passes or 2 consecutive days. They give you a map of the places they go to as well as close by hotels and... More

Whenever we visit Paris, I always include BatoBus on our activities. The kids love riding on a boat on the Seine. While most cruises are 1-2 hours long, the Batobus is like a water taxi allowing you to hop on and off at many key locations. Boats go by every 20 minutes. Easy to catch. For an extra €2, you...

We had used Batobus several years ago and found it an enjoyable and convenient way to get around the city, but this review is for their customer service. We visited Paris for eight days in June and pre-purchased annual Batobus passes for four (unfortunately, they had discontinued the 5-day passes that were so convenient last time, and the annual passes...
