Used the Batobus (river taxi/bus) to get around the city in April 2003. You can buy a single trip ticket, one day or two day pass. The two day pass is by far the best value for money which means you can hop on and...More

We were really disappointed with this trip and did not feel it was anywhere near worth the money. Most of the food was indeed excellent. The starters and desserts were exceptional, but the main course let it down. We paid an extra 10 Euros each...More

A wonderful relaxing Avalon waterways cruise. Service and food was incredibly great. An awesome way to tour and sightseeing.

In summer you can go to the beach on the banks - seriously! The city builds an artificial 'seaside'. All year round you can take the Batobus water taxi from Tour Eiffel to the Jardin des Plantes. It's a hop-on-hop-off system and you pass by...More

Dirty and smelly river, full of emerging garbage in the middle of such historical city. Art combined with rubbish, not working really well. French people should complaint about this situation with the local and national authorities.

Included in our package, this cruise provided a glimpse of beautiful buildings. Unfortunately, their was no commentary but the trip was still a wonderful experience.

The river runs through the center of town and you will cross it many times on the many beautiful bridges. Take one of the bateau Mouche boat tours, especially at night. Stroll the banks. Lovely and romantic.

I did buy a ticket before coming to Paris but I did not have the time to do the boat ride. Since, I did not ride the boat. I cannot make any recommendations.
