Paris: 1-hour River Seine Cruise
- Valid: 1 month
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.
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.
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.
You have probably heard about the Seine river that runs through Paris, but it is so much more than that. A good tidbit of information for you to know: since 1991, its riverbanks are a UNESCO World Heritage Site. From the Seine, you can appreciate the architectural mastery of Notre Dame, the Louvre, and the Eiffel Tower, in addition to many other landmarks.
Combine one cruise with two ultimate Paris sightseeing experiences on a guided tour of the Eiffel Tower and a visit to Arc de Triomphe. See the city from the top of two of the most popular landmarks and choose your favorite. Can’t make up your mind? Go on a one-hour relaxing cruise on the Seine. You can always look at your phone’s camera roll and decide later.
Pretty confident the view from the top of the Iron Lady is the winner? Then opt for the cruise that includes an Eiffel Tower Visit with Summit and a skip-the-line entrance to the Louvre Museum. And just in case you’re not quite done figuring out what’s on Mona Lisa’s mind, you can jump back on the cruise another day.
Indulge in a 3-course dinner while watching the sunset over Paris from your panoramic window.
As you can imagine, few experiences are more romantic than the Evening Cruise with Dinner on River Seine. Sit back and relax with the City of Lights as your backdrop for two and a half hours.
The a la carte menu includes authentic culinary creations like duck foie gras and escargots. Vegetarians can opt for pressed quinoa and tofu terrine or buckwheat with silky tofu. For dessert, it’s a tough call between matured cheeses and creamy chocolate crisp. Vegan travelers can opt for the 3-course Dinner Cruise with Panorama on Seine River. This cruise offers a vegan menu upon request.
Hop on board, sit back, and relax as Paris unfolds before your eyes. See the city on a shorter cruise, whether you’ve just reached or are bidding adieu to the City of Love.
The Paris: 1-hour illuminations river cruise takes you through the lit-up facades of the Louvre, the Grand Palais, and Notre Dame. The Iron Lady also puts up quite the light show every night, and you’ll get to see that too from the river. In case you prefer to see the city in the daytime, you can go for the Paris: 1-hour river Seine cruise departing every 30 minutes from 10:00 AM.
Ditch the crowds and surprise your loved one with a private pontoon boat river cruise in Paris. On this 2-hour journey, it's just you, your better-half, and the city. Well, and the captain too because someone has to steer the ship while you enjoy the scenery.

Very nice tour. The Eiffel tower at night is worth a visit. From the cruise, the city looks so beautiful at night. It ended up to be a very romantic cruise. The big full moon was just a cherry on the top. Don't forget to bring a charged smartphone with headphones.
We strted the trip at 7 p.m. just before the golden hour ended. We caught the last glimpse of sun shining in that day and Paris looked beautiful. It was a great experience.
Our guide Sofiane was superb. The 8h45 slot was also great, as we were able to avoid the crowd and still enjoy the rest of the day.
Excelente, solo que hay que estar pendiente del punto de encuentro. La guía que nos tocó en español, lo mejor!!
I enjoyed it very much! It was nice to see Paris from another point of view! I loved it!
