A city that boasts more monuments than many other cities put together, Paris is a world-class sightseeing destination. Standout architecture, museums, art galleries and historic cathedrals line the UNESCO-listed banks of its famous Seine River, so what better way to see them than by a hop-on hop-off sightseeing cruise? Choose from a 1- or 2-day pass (24H and 48H), and then discover sightseeing opportunities galore on your hop-on hop-off Seine River cruise.
Aboard a panoramic riverboat, with both deck and lower-deck seating, admire top city attractions, such as Notre Dame Cathedral with its gorgeous French Gothic architecture, and Hôtel de Ville where the Mayor of Paris holds office.
Pass the chic neighborhood of Saint-Germain-des-Prés with its bustling boutiques and prestigious art galleries, and perhaps hop off at the Eiffel Tower to marvel at one of the world’s most iconic feats of architecture. Your route also allows you to hop off at the famous Louvre Museum as well as Musée d'Orsay, with its unparalleled collection of Renaissance art.
With your ticket, you can remain on the boat for an entire loop (roughly 1.5 to 2 hours) or you can hop on and off at any of the eight stops along the Seine River to explore Paris’ countless delights.

We did not use our two day pass as much as we should have! But, when we did, we enjoyed it. It was a convenient way to get around to the major sites while enjoying the sites as you passed.
This was an excellent, good value way to explore the Paris sights from the river on a first visit to this city.
Fantastic idea, was so easy to get around to all of the “big” tourist attractions, made life so easy!
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.
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.
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.
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!
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 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.
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:(
Cruise along Paris’ Seine River on a hop-on hop-off sightseeing cruise! Use a 1-day ticket (24H) to travel to top Paris attractions such as the Eiffel Tower and the Louvre Museum, or upgrade to a 2-days (48H) ticket for another consecutive day of sightseeing. Simply hop on and off as many times as you like at any of the eight stops along the Seine River’s UNESCO-listed riverbanks.
