Full description

Admire the city of love and lights from the water on this Paris cruise. Embark down the Seine, one of the longest rivers in France, and take in Paris’ sights on the riverside, such as the iconic Eiffel Tower and Notre Dame.

Hop on board the boat and get comfortable before taking off from Port Javel Bas. Feel free to bring your own snacks and drinks on board to fully enjoy your trip. Pets are also welcome.

First, you’ll cruise in front of the Statue of Liberty monument, followed by the Eiffel Tower, the Alexander III Bridge, the Orsay Museum, and the Louvre.

The boat will pass under the historic Pont Neuf, Europe's oldest stone bridge and the first bridge in Paris. Just beyond it, you will have a unique view of Notre-Dame Cathedral and the Paris Plages, a famous artificial beach located along the Seine.

After your scenic cruise around Paris, return to the Port of Javel Bas, where the tour began.

It could not have been better! I had previously done a larger night cruise in Paris a few years ago but was looking for something more meaningful and memorable. This private night cruise was perfect. Artur was the best captain, historian, picture taker and host. The boat was super comfortable for our party of 5. If you’re looking for a first-rate experience…book this private cruise. Totally worth it!

Our guide Artur was fabulous! We got lost on the way to his boat and was late about 15 minutes. He was so nice about it and we really appreciated that! It was a lovely night time cruise and he had champagne, water soda for us plus delicious artisan polish cookies. He showed all the best sites and took pictures of our family at each one. He is very energetic and kind and capable. Highly recommend this tour!

We have been here three days and this has been the best experience of our entire trip! Artur makes all the difference on this tour as he is incredibly funny, considerate, and loves his job. It is a great combination of explaining what we see while also giving us our space to take it all in. Skip all other tours on the River and book with Artur, you won’t regret it!
