Overview

See top Paris sights on a leisurely hop-on hop-off Seine boat cruise. Forget traveling underground on the Metro or tiring yourself out by walking, this boat cruise offers views of the UNESCO World Heritage-listed riverbanks and the ability to hop off whenever you'd like to see sights such as Notre Dame Cathedral, Musée d'Orsay, and the Eiffel Tower. Choose a 1- or 2-day ticket to fit your schedule.

What to Expect

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
  • Saint-Germain-des-Prés
  • Notre Dame Cathedral
  • Jardin des Plantes/Cité de la Mode

Night cruise magical

Another must, a leisurely way to see the many sights. Sit on the outside and enjoy Paris as you float down the Seine. There is a commentary. It’s is via WiFi. I recommend doing it at night. It is magical.

Convenient Way to See the Sites

Since we only had the day to check out the sites in Paris, using the Batobus was a pretty convenient way to see the major sites. Esepcially since you dropped off minutes away from the site, while also cruising down the Seine river. It was...More

Agree with Laura P, they state it's approx 30 mins but depends on the number of people getting on and off at each stop. So safely speaking, it is approximately 40 mins give or take.

I also don't know why you would purchase the tickets anywhere but from the kiosk located at each hop-on/hop-off stop. The boats are so frequent that you can just purchase on a spur of the moment. No planning/thinking... More
