  Batobus - paris
by sourbugger

I've been looking up the website for the 'Batobus' wich plies it's trade up and down the Seine, stopping off at eight points between the Eiffel tower and the Jardin de Plantes.

At 15 euro for a hop on-hop , hop-off service it seens to be reasonable value - certainly in comparison to the 'normal' cruise services. There are also discounts for holding SNCF/RATP tickets, although they don't say which ones.

It's only a few euro's more to make it a 2-day of 5 day ticket.

It appears the main downsides are a) the late start in the morning (from 10am) b) the sometimes lengthy wait between boats and c) The lack of a view where the river banks are quite high.
