Relaxing way to get around Paris and see many sights.

One stop was near our hotel so we got a 2 day pass and took the boat to many places we wanted to visit. Fortunately the weather was perfect so we were able to do a lot of walking and mapped our routes accordingly. Very few taxis needed. Visited museums, a few sites and just got lost in beautiful neighborhoods. Found our way back and hopped back on to do it again. Met a family from California who were just taking it to relax for a few hours, take some pics and figure out where they wanted to go during their stay in Paris. This is a must for every trip to this beautiful city.

Sightseeing and transportation in one - excellent value

The BatoBoat is a great option for those who like to walk and ride. We used it as a tram to get to the Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame, the Louvre and to just relax and sightsee on the river. It runs every 20 minutes from 10 AM to 9:30 PM. I would really like to see an option that runs at night, say till midnight. The ticket stations are built into the wall on the side of the river and may be hard to spot. Once we found it we got our tickets no problem, remember to bring photo ID (does not have to be a passport).

Three loops in Paris provides all encompassing view of city.

I was quite please with the flexibility of the schedule and appreciated the forth rightness of the agent forecasting a potential closure of Blue route due to protesters on Saturday. Though it didn’t happen an offer to add a day was very thoughtful and appreciated. I recommend taking 3 days for Hop on Hop off and adding the River Cruise prior to evening near the Eiffel Tower. You will be thankful as we were!

The best way to see the beautiful sights of Paris!

Fantastic value for money. Super easy to hop on and off the boat at 8 famous sights of gorgeous Paris and the ticket is valid for 24 hours, so I was able to spend a splendid time on the Seine on an afternoon and the next morning with some shopping on the Champs Elysee on between. The staff members were absolutely lovely and very helpful. Highly recommend a trip on the Batoboat.

This was a great way to get around Paris and see the best of the sites

This was a great way to get around Paris and see the best of the sites. The boat runs a regular and reliable service from convenient points. Staff were very helpful with RER and Metro directions as well as with placed to eat. Loved it and will be booking again when we are back in Paris!
