Full description
Explore the sights of Paris at your own pace with a 24 hours or 48 hours pass to the Batobus shuttle service along the River Seine, and jump on and off at 9 strategic stops to see sights such as the Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame, Louvre, and more. Cruise through the heart of Paris, admiring landmark monuments along the river bank from the comfort of a glassed-in boat. Then, stop to explore further at leisure.

• Tour Eiffel - Port de la Bourdonnais. Jump off at the foot of the great Parisian landmark, and ascend for panoramic city views from the viewing platforms. The stop is also convenient for the Cité de l’Architecture museum, where exhibits include casts of French architecture from the 12th to 18th centuries.

• Musée d'Orsay - Quai de Solférino. Located a 2-minute walk from the Musée d'Orsay, this stop is perfect for those who want to explore the world of Impressionists artists, such as Monet, Degas, Renoir, Cézanne, and Van Gogh.

• St-Germain-des-Prés - Quai Malaquais. Hop off near the Institut de France, home of Paris artists and intellectuals, and discover historic sights, such as the famous Les Deux Magots and Café de Flore.

• Notre-Dame - Quai de Montebello. Admire the architectural harmony and Gothic gargoyles of the most iconic cathedral in Paris, and explore the carefree student atmosphere of the Latin Quarter.

• Jardin des Plantes - Cité de la Mode et du Design. Wander among nature in the main botanical garden of Paris, and explore the museums in the garden grounds, including the Grande Galerie de l'Évolution and Paleontology Museum. The Cité de la mode et du design (also known as "les Docks") was built in 1907 as industrial warehousing for the Ports de Paris. It is a city within the city dedicated to creativity: design, fashion, innovation, and events. The Cité has permanent residents which include restaurants, nightclubs, a museum, and shops.

• Hotel de Ville - Pont d'Arcole. Stop here to visit the historic City Hall of Paris, go to the Pompidou Centre, and wander the bohemian streets of the Marais district.

• Louvre - Pont Royal and Pont du Carrousel. Discover a Paris quarter where history and the history of art come together, and see centuries of art, from Egyptian antiquities to Renaissance masterpieces.

• Place de la Concorde. Stroll down one of the most elegant streets in Paris, home to five-star hotels and chic boutiques, and see the Grand Palais, Petit Palais, and tree-lined Avenue Montaigne.

• Invalides - Pont Alexandre III.

I really advise that visitors take this boat tour first. You can hop on and off to see various sites such as the Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame, and the Louvre. I spent way too much cab fare going to the Louvre and Notre Dame that could’ve been saved just by using this trip. I had no idea the time would be sufficient enough to visit these various places. I do, however, recommend purchasing tickets to the various sites before visiting. The lines were very long and time would be wasted…

Hop on hop off by river.

The stops were clearly marked and identified along the river, the ticket, flyers, and website. Traveling by river added a little something special to the commute and we had no problems hoping on and off as we pleased, although I would have liked to not have a ticket and simply use my mobile for entry onto the boat. I had issues with the seating. Why must we sit knee to knee with strangers? I did not like that aspect AT ALL. But then again, this was the same with the Metro. Boo.

Good way to get around

Your online booking isnt your ticket so saves absolutely no time as you still need to queue for a ticket. We almost missed the boat because of it. Also gets crowded and is very very hot inside on a warm day. Terrible if you have children. Very limited outside space. Otherwise no problem but we will get the bus next time
