For 17 euros for a 24 hour ticket, this is just the best way to travel through the city. We were staying in Bercy, on the far eastern side of the Batobus route, and sat on the bus for the whole route as we only...More

I would recommend the two day pass if you have the time and it’s only slightly more expensive than the one day ticket. Be warned , there is next to no commentary on most of the trips but if you are lucky you will get...More

Batobus is a hop on-hop off slow circuit of 9 sites along the Seine. There is no narration - this is "transportation only" circuit. It's pricey - $17 for a 24 hour ticket (a 48 hour ticket is only $19). A single 9 stop circuit...More

We thoroughly enjoyed our boat tour of Paris along the Seine River. The trip takes exactly one hour and the audio guides provide each traveller with descriptive information of all the sights as we pass by.

Batobus is a fantastic way to sightsee some of the major Parisian attractions. Well located (and easy to find) stops, smooth ride and a good chance to rest the legs! It is also well priced compared to some of the other river cruises on offer.

In Saint-Germain-des-Prés, life is effortlessly chic
and all things are beautiful. The main boulevard is
dotted with famed terraced cafés, haut-couture shops,
ivy-covered railings and fine-dining restaurants.
Antique dealers and art galleries surround the fine
art school and small museums hide in unassuming
squares. The neighbourhood’s namesake church is the
oldest in Paris and is the backdrop for talented

Yes, you can buy your tickets at every stop. We bought ours at Notre Dame and there is a kiosk at every stop.

Batobus can be used for 24 hours starting when you start your trip (for example from 9 a.m. from one day to 9 the next day, or from 10 to 10). In your case I think it should start on August 25th until the 26th. Anyway come... More

As far as I recall, there were not many ramps along the way. There may be one at the Grenelle station but I don't think there were any at the others
