Great way to get to see the sights of Paris by boat while cruising from one destination to another.... courteous staff with clean boats. On a beautiful day this is perfect.

Batobus worked out ok for my family and I but I can easily see where improvement could be made. The schedule seems pretty erratic. The little display screens at each stop often don't show when the next boat is coming, which seemed to be the...More

Only 17 Euros for a hop on and hop off day ticket per person which I thought was excellent value! The loop circuit means you could do the full tour to get your bearings and then choose where you want to hop on and off.....More

As far as im aware it is valid from the time of purchase for 24hrs BUT the boats/buses do not run continuously for 24hrs. So therefore time your purchase to maximise your use of it. Hope it helps.

As others have posted, best to check with each docking Batobus station directly... once in Paris. When the Seine River caps out or overflows, one must now wait for the river to recede. Boats can't pass under bridges either... More
