Staying by the tour Eiffel, we chose to spend 15e on a day ticket rather than 12e for a day cruise tour. This option provided a day cruise from the Eiffel tower to nitre dame but we were also able to experience the seine at...More

Try it and you'll like it for sure! 8 stops around the river, you can get in/off wherever/whenever you want during the day if you get a day-pass (you can also take two or five days pass). Enjoyable trip, the best alternative to metro or...More

When our legs were tired from walking all day, we decided to take the Bato-bus back 'home' rather than the metro. What a treat! Fantastic view of Paris you cannot get from any other vantage point, without having to spend $$ on a pricey tourist-trap...More

Having read reviews on this website I thought we would use the 2-day option for 18euros. It was a great decision, as the boat ride is undercover (cold December weather), the staff are wonderful, and the views amazing. We enjoy walking as well so it...More

Get a one day or two day pass and you'll save money. The Batobus is a water taxi, so don't expect a traditional tour. However, it's a great way to get from attraction to attraction in Paris along the Seine. I loved taking pictures from...More

If you booked online you need to choose a date. Otherwise just buy tickets at one of the Batobus kiosks in Paris. It's a shame that it is a bit restrictive but it's a great way to see Paris. Cheers
