Fantastic way to see Icons of Paris and also a convenient intra-city ride

Bought Tickets at the Eiffel Tower station, I am not sure there is any advantage buying tickets online. Irrespective of your ticket, the rides are first-come, first-serve. You get a great view of the city, great platform to take plenty great pictures, a bit of history. Our tour guide spoke in English as well. The tour's duration is seemingly longer... More

A one day pass on the batobus is 17€ and the 2 day pass is 19€. We got the 2 day pass and found it great value for money. You can hop on and off at all stops along the route until about 9.30pm. It does get very hot when the temperature is high because the roof is glass, but... More

We thought it's a good idea taking this river boat on a steaming hot day as the metro and busses in Paris run without air condition. (yep, you read correctly - in 2016 mid-August - no AC) But it turned out that it wasn't such a good idea as the boat has no shade from the sun and we ended... More

Just hop on and off when you feel like it along Paris Seine river. Each stop is strategically placed to let you access historical sites of Paris jsut by walking. The daily ticket is not cheap, but it has the advantage of allowing you full freedom between 10am and 9:30pm in summer. If you were to spend 2 days in... More

I'm so glad I tried batobus to traverse between the many sites. No lines, no traffic and straight to the sites. You get views you can't see from the streets. Batobus is inexpensive transportation and I recommend a two day pass, get on and off as often as you wish. Stay on for a night cruise down the Sein.

Batobus has 9 stops along the Seine River making it a great way to see the highlights of the city. We purchase the two day Pass for 19 euro and it was a good deal. Some of the stops were more difficult to locate; the map highlighted them but a few had blocked views to see it. There were streets... More

We bought the boat/bus combo for 2 adults and 2 kids. We stayed by the Eiffel tower so would walk down to the boat and go to our first site. It was fun to go up and down the seine at different times of the day (runs from 9? to 2130). The bus has commentary in multiple languages and they... More

While I enjoyed the sites, the boat is so poorly designed that it negatively impacts comfort. There are no open windows at the front or side to allow airflow. While some too tiles were open, the closed ones provide NO shade or protection from the sun. I was only able to last for half the route and ended up sunburned.... More

This is an excellent way to explore Paris at a good price. You can purchase an unlimited hop on hop off ticket for 2 days for 2 people for under $60 AUD and it is a far more pleasant way to travel than by metro. The batobus has about 8 stops in all including Musee D Orcy, Notre Dame, Louvre... More
