River Seine Hop-on Hop-off Sightseeing Cruise

Explore Paris at your own pace from the River Seine with a one or two day hop-on, hop-off river shuttle pass. Enjoy views of the world-famous landmarks lined along the banks of the River Seine and the freedom to hop off at any of the convenient stops along the route to explore, sightsee or visit attractions before boarding the next boat to continue on your journey.

With more historic monuments than most other cities put together and many of these world-famous museums, art galleries and cathedrals lining the banks of the River Seine, what better way to explore Paris than a hop-on hop-off sightseeing cruise?

With 8 stops on the route, Batobus shows you a different view of Paris and is an original way of getting about in Paris. With your River Seine Hop-on Hop-off Sightseeing Cruise 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.

Jump off at any of the stops to see sights such as the Louvre, Eiffel Tower, or Notre Dame and enjoy the panoramic views whilst on board the glass covered boat. This is the perfect way to get about and explore the many famous sights of this amazing city.
