what a great idea, it gives the tourist the perfect direction and glue for a perfect sightseeing time. no commentary but it's not missed, easy access for everyone who can get down the steps to the landings. great crews who will assist where required.

very well run..great for seeing the river seine and getting around the boat ran every 20 minutes and waited for us while we took photos at the Eiffel Tower as it was the last boat and we wanted to see the Light show(which is on the hour from dark in winter and its definitely worth seeing)
it was cheap too ...we found with a bit of research the best way for getting around paris was the batobus and the metro.
they also accept student cards from colleges outside of France

If you stay near any of the stops it is a beautiful alternative to the metro. It moves slow enough so you can see one coming and get to the landing in time. Boats are few in off season and waits can be long. A full week pass is not much more than a day pass and worth it for the option of a few trips in a week. Best view of the eiffel,

Good sightseeing and sort of transportation while in Paris. Whole day attraction for just 15 eur. Take a batobus tour before/after lunch, then go for a walk in the city and return for an evening tour - you'll find out how different but beautiful Paris is at night and during day time.

We have included the Siene river cruise as one of the must things to do in Paris. We have decided to go for the Bastbus for multiple reasons:

1) You pay a cheap price for a full day (Euros 15 for 1 full day; Euros 21 for 5 consecutive days!) thus providing you the ability of cruising in the morning and in the evening - great for taking photos.
2) We were not interested in dining or having lunch on the cruise. Simple transportation and viewing.
3) It has the most important landmark stops around Paris which offers the possibility of visiting the landmark and continuing the cruise later on.
4) You save money by giving you the possibility of using the single travel metro tickets carnets to travel to Paris centre and go around the landmarks using the Batobus once you are visiting landmarks around the Siene river. This is obviously not valid on those days were you visit areas off the Siene such as Montmatre.

Transportation was always on time, comfortable, adequately clean with frequent scehduling. Excellent value for money!
