The 11 stops are in the sorts of places you'd want them to be: the Eiffel Tower, the grand roue, champs elysees etc. Worth the price ticket and a good way to... More

I thought this was just another great boat ride but it is so much more. It is an alternative to traveling by taxi or Metro in Paris. For one price, you can hop on this covered, all glass, big boat at the foot of the Eiffel Tower and be dropped off at several choice attraction sites (Norte Dame, etc.) along... More

On our third trip Paris we used Batobus for the first time. It does a hop on hop off loop on the Seine which gives you the opportunity to see sights. We bought the 2 day pass which only cost an extra 2 euro and we will use it again tomorrow. There is no commentary as such and no other... More

We talked with a woman who worked here and she told us that if we wanted to ride the following day we could buy our tickets the next day on any boat. We waited for 30 min at a boat stop and when the boat pulled up the worker told us we could not purchase tickets on the boat. I... More

Sure, it was busy but the Batobus was a fantastic way to access the finer points of Paris. It took in all the sights, was simple to use and pretty good value for money. Lovely on a warm, sunny day.

Batobus was about 17 euros each per adult for 1 day, 2 days was a better deal at 19 euros, a great way to visit sites there are 8 stops and you can get off and on as you please they run regularly so not long to wait between sailings. Although Paris is a great walking city the Batobus gives... More

We were in Paris for a week Dec 22-29, 16. With time at a minimum and after reading the reviews, I decided this means of traveling would get us to where we needed to be and save time. We purchased the 2 day museum pass which included the L'Open Tour bus and this "wonderful" boat. The bus part is another... More

We took the Batobus on a one day "river cruise". One can purchase various day tickets. We bought the 1 day ticket. It gives access to hop on and hop off as many time as you wish within the given time period. So we did one round trip in the morning and then another one at night. There is no... More

Inexpensive and relaxing trip on the Seine to see Paris. Being able to hop on/off gave us time to explore the area around the major sites without going into the Metro.

We bought this as part of the l'open bus tour. The ride itself is very nice in the winter. The sitting area is enclosed so it is great on a cold day. You have to go up and down stairs to get from the street to the boats. So give yourself time. The worst part of this tour for us... More
