This was a great way to get to the main attractions in Paris along the Seine. There were plenty of seats and the staff was kind.
Overall it was not bad. They made us wait 50 minutes when we were told the each boat is at 25 minutes intervals. And there was no communication regarding the delay.
We were in Paris for the first time and found our hop-on hop-off boat perfect for efficiently getting us to all the top attractions quickly and easily ..and we had great views all along the river that the metro couldn't possibly deliver!
The locations to board were easy to find and near monuments. The boats came and went often. There were vending machines on board, if needed. We always found seats. It was a great experience.
Great way to see the best attractions from the river and was a nice break in between seeing and walking the sights! Covered so when it rained a little it was no big deal.
No one told us one of the stops was not in operation, our map showed the stop. We were told we had been given an old map. Wasted almost 1 1/2 hours of our day:(
Great, with the online tickets got the cards for hoping on and off the cruise. There was no line and the boats were half empty. The weather outside was bad so the cruise was perfect for the day.
The hop on hop off facility was good for getting to the main points of interest but I was not as informative as the hop on hop off big bus experience.
I purchased a Seine River Hop-On Hop-Off cruise for May 7th. Our hotel was in the Grenelle area, and we walked to see where the Batobus port was across from the Eiffel Tower. There was a sign that listed the drop off areas were, and the Beaugrenelle was listed just before the Eiffel Tower port. We had a 10:15am tour of the Eiffel Tower purchased from TripAdvisor (which was changed to 10:30am by the local tour company). After the Eiffel Tower, we walked back to the hotel because we had to go online and check in for our return flight the next day. We had intended to walk to the Beaugrenelle port to use this as our base for the one day Seine River cruise. We wasted one hour walking up and down the two large port areas, and could not find the Batobus Beaugrenelle port. So we walked to the Batobus port near the Eiffel Tower, and checked in with our prepaid Viator vouchers. We asked them where the Beaugrenelle port was, and the response was that the river is too high, and their boats can not safely go under the bridges. These people are too stupid to remove the Beaugrenelle port from the sign near the Eiffel Tower. The Seine River cruise was good, and we used the hop-on and hop-off feature, but it would have been better if we knew that the Beaugrenelle port was no longer used. We would have then taken the cruise right after the Eiffel Tower tour, and then walked back to the hotel in Grenelle. Batobus employees are stupid!
The boat was always clean and on time. Staff was always cheerful with their greetings and never failed to answer any queries you may have. The boat stops near the major tourist attractions and monuments. Will definitely take this again. Price is reasonable. Highly recommended. Many thanks for making our holiday more enjoyable.
Easy to get the ticket and convenient. Great for getting around downtown Paris. Multiple stops along the River. The announcements were a little garbled and hard to understand though.
Great way to get around but no explanation of anything passing by. Ended service very early in the day.
Really great. Nice personnel and a great way to see the sites. When raining glass cover is convenient.
Excellent!! Great way to see Paris from the Seine and use a water taxi. Easy to find and use. All the main stops are there.
This was a fun thing to do and a great way to see Paris. We did not fully utilize this, and regret it.
Excellent way to get your bearings.Every stop had something to offer. We stopped at the Notre-Dame and Champs Elysees.
