  • River Seine Cruise from Parc de la Villette

    2. River Seine Cruise from Parc de la Villette

    Start your day in Paris with one of its most enchanting attractions, and take a 2.5-hour cruise along the Canal Saint-Martin and River Seine. Embark in the center of the Parc de la Villette, and cruise gently along the canal to Rue de Crimée’s elevated bridge, as it goes through the Bassin de la Villette, before entering the magnificent Rotonde by Ledoux. Adventure begins with the first lock at the Récollets Center, where you will catch sight of the Hotel du Nord. Discover the real Canal Saint-Martin, filled with the poetry of its romantic paths and pedestrian bridges, bordered by chestnut trees and populated by fishermen. Then, the boat will be plunged into darkness as you enter a tunnel of more than 1-mile, taking you through a mysterious underground vault that is perforated by light holes. Filled with magic and beauty, when you emerge into the light at Arsenal Port, you will see the...

    It's a nice boat cruise on an offbeat path. I liked how I had not seen this part of Paris before. It's like a hidden gem. The seine cruises are a dime a dozen and this cruise differentiates itself. I read some of the other reviews and I didn't find the speaker annoying, nor did I find the seats uncomfortable. I agree that you could bring a snack and a drink. The weather I had was perfect +23 and sunny. Bring sunglasses and bring a jacket just in case. You go through 1.5km of underground cavern type area. Very cool. You see lots of different bridges too. As far as improvement on how to make this even better, I do agree with someone else's comment that the last 20minutes on the Seine seems too short. It would have been nicer if this cruise went up the river farther to the statue of liberty and turned around and came back to Orsay. (just because the Canal and Seine are two different worlds). They really complement each other. Do this if you've been to paris B4.

    Xavier Hesse , pilot for PSB , made the experience on the river very pleasant. I found it , on the other hand, impossible to communicate by phone with either PSB or GYG and this prevents a higher rating from me.

Very good service. Frederic really gave us an interesting tour. He certainly knows his Paris. In addition to all the juicy details only someone with his experience can give. We had an absolutely amazing time! Next time we’ll go for the tour of the French Revolution tour.

We could have just biked on our own but we are glad we did not because We learned a lot we would not have known without the guide.

Great guide, lovely start point and great scenery away from the biggest sites
