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 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.

Great way to see many of the Paris landmarks from the comfort (and dry) of a boat on the river. Service is great. Boats were on time and plenty of room aboard. We saw all or most of the following landmarks: Eiffel Tower, La Louvre, Musee D'Orsay, Place des Invalides, Place de la Concorde, Notre dame - and more besides. Great value!

This was great. The only "problem" is that the meeting point is indicated at Eiffel deck, which was quiet off for us, but we get the reply with chat service on app, (off hours) and we started the hop on from Louvre. On time, neat, queue on major decks... Nice..

You had to wait longer at the Eiffel Tower because too many people wanted to get on the boat. It was very warm and the heat built up a bit on the boat through the glass roof. The staff was very friendly and boats came at regular intervals so you could hop on and off at any time. It's a nice idea, I don't regret driving it.
