Full description

Explore the sights of Paris at your own pace with a 24-hour or 48-hour 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 your 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. Explore the city within a city dedicated to creativity: design, fashion, innovation, and events. • 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 decided on the Batobus as I had read reviews of how packed the tourist cruise boats can get. We also weren’t too bothered about commentary. To be fair it was out of season so generally quieter but the boat was was good - all seating is inside but there is a section at the end where you can stand outside (too cold for that on our visit). The batobus website is useful for telling you when the next boat is due and a bit about each stop. It’s a good relaxing way to see Paris. There was a strike on one of our days and I contacted Getyourguide who were really helpful and was able to rebook to 2 different days.

The boats are always on time and it’s a convenient way of sightseeing without the constraints of worrying about your next ride. You can get on or off at any stop. What we did was take a complete ride just to soak up the river view and then plan of designated stops.

Please be sure to download the voucher. Evern through the app says its available off line it will disappear from the app. This happened to me and when we arrived at the experience it was completely gone. My photo had connection problems and we ended up walking away. Later that night I did a reboot and had to request a code and frankly it was a pain to get the experience that I booked back. Once I did, I created screen shots, luckily this worked and when I arrived, I was able to use the hop on/hop off service.
