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

We had a fabulous day with our wonderful guide who was engaging, adaptable and a lovely person to spend a day with. The tour covers all different elements of Paris with interesting information. It is a great way to learn about this amazing city in 1 day. I went on the tour with my 2 smaller kids and the guide was excellent at adapting the tour for them. We all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and would go again with this touring company.

No warm greeting to welcome you on board, surprising given this is hospitality and you'd want a lovely greeting. The boat was big, yet even then no warnings for people not to sit too close to each other I practically had a woman sit on my lap. Scary in a pandemic. Audio guide signal kept dropping out, so gave up trying to listen. Horrific graffiti all over the city - why Paris? Good route and a different way to see Paris.

Good experience Nice cruise with rooftop accessibility.I had the cruise experience just during sunset between 9 pm to 10 pm.I have one suggestion ,authorities must request passengers at the rooftop to wear mask too and seats and cleaned after each trip as a covid safety standard.Thanks

I had a great time. The hostess quickly switched to English so I could clearly understand. The mobile map made it easy to keep us with what attractions we were passing, but made it easy to just relax and enjoy the sights. I recommend this to everyone!
