The tour serves 2 purpose, gives you a scenic view of river Seine & covers lot of must see landmarks. The Hop-on-Hop-off tour gives to flexibility to spend time at your will. The travel time between the monuments is 5-10 min & frequency is every 40 minutes. There is bit of walking you need to do from the shore to... More

We took a couple of tickets on the Batobus to see Paris from the water instead of another day on the Metro. We picked it up mid-morning at Port des Champs-Élysées and set about our day. Hopping on and off is easy enough but we did notice some stops are busier than others. We originally planned to stay on the... More

The staff at Batobus were so helpful. We booked a full day hop on hop off for Friday 17th and turned up around 5pm to use it - the staff member said we would only have chance for one trip if we went on now, or we could save our voucher for the next day and use it for the... More

Kits was all galleried out after trips to the Louvre and Foundation Louis Vuitton in the space of 24 hours, so we decided to chill for the afternoon on the Batobus, a 2 hour round trip from Notre Dame to the Eiffel Tour and back again. A great way to admire the gorgeous Parisian skyline, which has to be one... More

We purchased two-day tickets for Sunday and Monday but never bothered to use it on the second day. We were told that the waiting time for the next boat would be approximately 35 minutes.We waited and waited for at least over an hour on the windy and chilly Jan 15 (minus 3C) without any shelter to hide or to keep...

For me this is the best way to view the attractions of Paris. It is stress free, unhurried and relaxing. It offers a unique experience on a dark, chill, Winters evening as you effortlessly, almost silently cruise along the Seine with illuminated backdrop of the city all around, There are 9 stops situated along the river at the major attractions...

Really enjoyed seeing Paris from the river. You can get on and off as you please so you only need to see what you want. Very reasonable price of 8 euros each. The boats come every 40 minutes to each stop which in freezing February meant some cold toes and noses from sometimes waiting a while.

There is a river boat called Batobus that is a wonderful way to see the River Seine in Paris. You can buy a one day or two day pass and can get off and on at any of the 9 stops as it travels in a circular route. In winter, you can have an especially wonderful experience leaving from the... More

Very convenient way to see the hotspots of Paris from the Seine. We started at the Eifeltower boat station, and went all the way down to the Louvre. It's not the fastest way, but it sure is a very relaxing experience.

We took the batobus hop on hop off cruise along with my parents and wife on 5 Feb 2017. It was very comfortable and easy. The boats were heated very well.The only drawback was that there were no toilets in the boat. But it was ok. The boat stopped approx. every 15 mins. if you plan correctly and if you... More
