Overview

See top Paris sights on a leisurely hop-on hop-off Seine boat cruise. Forget traveling underground on the Metro or tiring yourself out by walking, this boat cruise offers views of the UNESCO World Heritage-listed riverbanks and the ability to hop off whenever you'd like to see sights such as Notre Dame Cathedral, Musée d'Orsay, and the Eiffel Tower. Choose a 1- or 2-day ticket to fit your schedule.

What to Expect

With your 1- or 2-day travel voucher in hand, make your way to any of the eight cruise stops to board. Look for the ticket office featuring Batobus signage and wait for the next boat, which arrive every 25 to 40 minutes, depending on the season. Hours of operation also vary by season.

Step aboard the boat and find a comfortable seat. Get your camera ready for river views of the city's top attractions and the Seine’s UNESCO World Heritage-listed scenery. You can stay aboard the boat as it completes its loop, or hop off to explore any of the nine stops.

Stops include both the Louvre Musée d'Orsay and Louvre, as well as the chic Saint-Germain-des-Prés neighborhood. The cruise stops at the Eiffel Tower and Champs-Elysées. No matter the stop, you choose where to get off and how long to stay.

Full list of stops:

  • Champs-Elysées
  • Louvre Museum (between Pont Royal and Pont du Carrousel)
  • Hôtel de Ville
  • Eiffel Tower
  • Musée d'Orsay
  • Saint-Germain-des-Prés
  • Notre Dame Cathedral
  • Jardin des Plantes/Cité de la Mode

Very relaxing

After a very long, and often difficult day walking around the site of Paris with a wheelchair, we decided that the next day we try the Batobus river cruise. We had a wheelchair user with us, but she could walk a little so was easier...More

Paris Sightseeing onthe Seine

This cruise facility is very good and an enjoyable way to travel to the sightseeing hotspots and to get your bearings. It is a round trip of about 1.5 hours so ideal if your itinerary works with the loop, but not so good if you...More

Avoid - worst tourist attraction I’ve experienced

Worst tourist attraction I have ever been on. I cannot say strongly enough - Do not go on this boat! They oversell tickets and you will spend more time on the dock waiting in increasingly irate queues of people than you will on the boat....More

They run till 8pm at night, the buses run till 9pm but will stop picking up passengers at 8pm. We did the river in the afternoon as we were concerned about getting back to our hotel.
