Full description
Hop on board for a refreshingly new perspective of central Paris. Take a relaxing 1-hour river cruise of Paris and enjoy unbeatable views of the city's most memorable landmarks.

Starting at the Eiffel Tower, cruise leisurely on a comfortable boat down the river for a taste of elegant Parisian life. Glide past The Grand Palais, the Louvre, Musée d'Orsay, and Notre Dame Cathedral.

Opt for a VIP cruise in the afternoon and benefit from a live guide who will meet you before skipping the line to board. Go straight to a private VIP area and terrace at the front of the boat. Your guide will entertain you throughout the leisurely cruise with anecdotes and intriguing historical facts.

Alternatively, you can choose the audio commentary option and listen to informative stories about Paris. 

The Paris cruise goes as far as the Institute of the Arabic World at the Ile Saint-Louis before returning you to the Eiffel Tower, and it's the most relaxing way to sightsee in Paris and is the only way to explore the city free of traffic noise and congestion.

Worth the money. Very relaxing to do on a night after partying, or an evening to see all of the lights. We did in the morning and were glad that we could just sit and relax after a long night. Beautiful views. River was high so we didn't see everything, but still worth it. Champagne on the boat was a fun "when in Paris" picture.

We enjoyed our boat cruise on the Seine very much. We got to see many of the famous Paris sites in a short period of time. The audio guide was helpful in pointing out the landmarks and offering some stories to go with the attractions. It was a nice touch to have a bar and snacks available.

Wasn’t told that the cruise would not be taking the original route due to high water, would have understood but to not be told until too late was poor! Although there was commentary on the trip, we were unable to hear any of it as there was a large school group. Again, out of control from the staff, but no efforts were made to ask them to quieten down at all, nor increase the volume of the audio commentary - therefore we gained nothing from this tour, very disappointing.
