Top 5 reasons to take a Paris river cruise

What could be more romantic than a boat ride along Paris' Seine River? Here are five reasons why no visitor should resist the urge to jump on board the most picturesque of city cruises!

Sunset

Sunset

You may want to see the sights on a clear day, but the Seine really comes into its own beneath the setting sun. Watch Paris completely transform as night beckons.

Eiffel Tower

Eiffel Tower

Seeing the Eiffel Tower from below usually means views from the Champs de Mars park. Try it from the river instead, away from the swarms of other tourists!

Pont Neuf

Pont Neuf

See Paris' stunning bridges from another angle! Pont Neuf is the oldest, but there are as many as 37, each with its own charms.

Notre Dame

Notre Dame

The famous cathedral is essential viewing for any visitor, but see if you can sail past it at night without trembling before the eerily lit gargoyles!

Parisians

Venture along the bloodline of Paris at any time of day and you'll find the city bursting with life. Try the Pont Des Arts and the urban oddity that is "Paris Beach" for starters!

Planning Your Visit

How much does is cost?

A Seine river cruise can cost anything from €10 per person for a basic boat tour to upwards of €200 for a candle-lit, gourmet dinner cruise by night.

Did somebody say dinner?

There are several Paris dinner cruise options available. Our advice? It's usually worth splashing out but be sure to size up the menu first! Some boat tours also include dinner at a restaurant elsewhere once the trip is over.

What people are saying about Paris

A lovely classy evening of great service, food, music and company

Top end food and drink, friendly attentive waiter and shown straight to our table on arrival. Really enjoyable evening. Waiter kept our wine glasses (2 botts !) Topped up all night. Views from boat amaxing and guide info perfect. The 2.5 hours flew by too quick for us. Will be doing this again. Nice touch was i spotted bridge i had proposed on night before to Diane and got a pic. Spoke to a lovely american retired couple next to us most of night. Evening overall was just perfect....John and Diane from Aberdeen

A lovely and relaxing river cruise experience!

My wife and I visited Paris for the first time and wanted to go on a night cruise. It was lovely to see the sights along the Seine river at night while everything was all lit up. Seeing the Eiffel Tower all lit up and sparkling was a real highlight. To hear the audio though we needed to use the free wifi, which we didn't use. So we couldn't hear any commentary unfortunately. Overall it was a pleasant cruise and a lovely, relaxing evening!

The method to deliver the commentary could use some work.

The ride was nice, however, the concept of using your phone's WiFi to listen to commentary was not very useful considering that it does not work unless you stay on that page. This meant that I was not able to use it since I take photos with my cellphone. Very annoying. Even when going on the inside to listen to the little speakers coming from the seating, the sound would often cut out.

Excellent trip and thoroughly memorable with only a minor niggle

This trip really was a highlight of our long weekend - the food was very nice and the courses well timed given the relatively short serving window. The waiters were personable and courteous. One minor point - the GetYourGuide order form didn’t seem to offer a wine choice (red, white, rose) and onboard it took a while to request a different bottle. However overall highly recommended!

Great balance for adults and kids, excellent service for dinner

The view was incredible and the food was a great balance for the kids and the adult (everyone got something they liked) the cruise was just beautiful and I would definitely recommend it. You just need to go to the restaurant first to collect the ticket for the cruise (that was a bit confusing but the staff were very helpful)
