Itinerary

With your 1- or 2-day travel voucher in hand, make your way to any of the eight cruise stops to board. Look for the ticket office featuring Batobus signage and wait for the next boat, which arrive every 25 to 40 minutes, depending on the season. Hours of operation also vary by season.

Step aboard the boat and find a comfortable seat. Get your camera ready for river views of the city's top attractions and the Seine’s UNESCO World Heritage-listed scenery. You can stay aboard the boat as it completes its loop, or hop off to explore any of the nine stops.

Stops include both the Louvre Musée d'Orsay and Louvre, as well as the chic Saint-Germain-des-Prés neighborhood. The cruise stops at the Eiffel Tower and Champs-Elysées. No matter the stop, you choose where to get off and how long to stay.

Full list of stops:

  • Champs-Elysées
  • Louvre Museum (between Pont Royal and Pont du Carrousel)
  • Hôtel de Ville
  • Eiffel Tower
  • Musée d'Orsay

GREAT RIVER RIDE TO SIGHT-SEE PARIS

Our family enjoyed this great way to sight-see Paris. Price is very reasonable But I have to advise everybody to relieve yourself in the restroom before hopping on the boat as there is no toilet inside the boat.

How to view paris

17€ buys an all day ticket to hop on and off this glass topped boat, no boring commentary, great for photographers. This is a way to view the key sights from a different angle, without being exhausted.

Very easy and scenic way to get around Paris...

I would absolutely recommend getting the Batobus Hop-on-Hop-off Pass. We used it for several days to get around the city and see the sites. The cool thing is the pass works on 24 hour increments...if you buy it around 1pm, you have up until 12.59pm...More

I agree with the previous post...we were there in late August 2018, and the last batobus left from the Eiffel Tower stop at 9:30pm. I do believe the hours may change seasonally...so I would check with the website to be safe.

This isn’t a cruise it is more of a taxi. It operates till 7 pm. If you want to take an evening cruise you need to try another company. There are cruise boats with restaurants on board you can take. Speak to your hotel... More
