Another great tour taking in some wonderful sites with the option of hoping on and off. One warning is that you shouldn't take a big bag or rucksack as they may not let you on the boat. This is in the terms and conditions, however I didn't read them and came direct from our flight!

This is a great way to get around the city. I took the BatoBus from the Eiffel Tower to Notre Dame, and I got to see some of the sights along the way instead of making that same journey on an underground train and seeing nothing. There was an enclosed area that was warm, and an outdoor area of the boat that was better for photography.
I though there might be a little more of tour aspect to it, but that was not the case. There was nobody pointing out different sights along the way, or talking about the buildings and history. If that's what you're looking for, pick a different tour. But if you're looking for a convenient and scenic way to get around the city, the BatoBus is great.

The tour was awesome. My family and I took the trip on 4 feb 2017 and we loved it. The boats were heated properly and were running on time. Initially i was confused if i should take the bus hop on hop off tour, but i am glad that i took the river hop on hop tour. Also, I did not have to spend extra money to take the usual cruise trip. If you take the last boat at 7 PM then you also enjoy the night lights.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended December 2016

We used this on the first and second day we were in Paris. The first day we sat for the round trip to get our bearings of the city in the evening of the day we arrived. What a delight at dusk to see the city light up. A very pleasant way to tour. The second day to get us into the centre of the city from our hotel at Bersey. A good way to get around the city. Highly recomended.
