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 nine 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:

  • Beaugrenelle
  • Champs-Elysées
  • Louvre Museum (between Pont Royal and Pont du Carrousel)
  • Hôtel de Ville
  • Eiffel Tower
  • Musée d'Orsay
  • Saint-Germain-des-Prés

Could do with Commentary

Overall I'm glad we did this but we had quite a wait for our boat as the river was too high for a while for the boats to get under some of the bridges. Whilst this wasn't the company's fault they didn't post on their...More

I think it does. It’s not a guided tour, some people ( locals ) use it as an alternative to public transport, if danger of high water the you have to change boats at Orsay to continue to Notre Dame
