Travelled as a family with my 7 & 4 year old. Found this really good value compared to the hop on bus tours. Doesn't provide any commentary but a great way to see Central Paris. River is at its prettiest at twilight.

We always like to use the Batboys whenever we are in Paris. It's a great way to get up and down the river. One tip would be to avoid embarking at the Eiffel Tower if you can, as there are always long queues there.

Get there early. Get it out of the way and enjoy this different view of the city of Lights. Don't know what it would be at night but I think it would be marvellous. Booking is a must.

This trip is rather boring.You do not get a good view of the sights and the lines at a few of the spots that would be of interest are really long.It really is better to simply walk.

In Saint-Germain-des-Prés, life is effortlessly chic
and all things are beautiful. The main boulevard is
dotted with famed terraced cafés, haut-couture shops,
ivy-covered railings and fine-dining restaurants.
Antique dealers and art galleries surround the fine
art school and small museums hide in unassuming
squares. The neighbourhood’s namesake church is the

On the web site you can check this information, there is no evidence that the service does not work on holidays. At the moment it is not working due to the situation of the Seine, but I suppose that by May it will be solved.

Yes, you can buy your tickets at every stop. We bought ours at Notre Dame and there is a kiosk at every stop.
