Paris: Seine River Hop-On Hop-Off Sightseeing Cruise
- Duration options: 1 - 2 days
Very recommended! If one wants a Seine boat tour with maximum privacy, this is it. We got to the dock by bycicle (there's a Vélib' bike rent station nearby). Raphael, our captain, was there right in time. He is a very friendly openminded guy who explained a lot and answered every question we asked. The boat trip starts in the south west of paris near the Île Seguin giving you enough time to spend on the river enjoying the views of the historical buildings. Be sure: Everyone along the river will be jealous seeing you in a classic motor boat enjoying a glass of Rosé wine in the late afternoon sun. Definitly worth it.
The bus ride was super with a very detailed audio, I had a problem getting a bus stop but as soon as i go the local partner on chat they quickly directed me to the next stop and I hoped in, also make sure when you alight you have your 1 hr cruise tickets, i did not pick mine but got them again through the help of the chat services, if you love the Paris night lights take a booking that later in the evening.
We thoroughly enjoyed our Parisian e-bike tour. Pierre had lots of energy and was highly knowledgable, keeping us entertained with lots of fun historical stories. We covered lots of ground and were perfectly comfortable on the bikes on a very hot day. I’d recommend bringing a bottle of water all the same.
Just got back to our hotel after a relaxing two and a half hour trip on the river . Raphaël is an excellent host for the private boat trip, very accommodating and knowledgable. He Speaks excellent English, and has a lovely boat !
Highly recommend this tour. Our tour guide was suberb. He was engaging and funny and it’s a fantastic way to see and learn a bit more about Paris. Go!
