Full description

Discover the charm of Strasbourg on a private cruise on the III river. Choose a 1 hour tour to see the main monuments or become more intimate with the city on a 2 hour tour. Sail on the waters of the Ill river to discover or rediscover the city and its historical monuments in a different way.

Hop aboard the spacious ship the 'Saint Gothard' at the old Finkwiller quay and begin your sailing adventure through the heart of the city. Pass by European Institutions and take in the unique bright green rooftops of the Russian Orthodox 'All Saints Church.' 

Feel the thrill of crossing the locks and the Vauban dam. Glide into the old town of Petite France to take in the classic architecture. Ride by cobblestone roads and 16th-century buildings. Return to your starting point at the end of your cruise.

Excellent experience to see the city and its surrounds from a different perspective. The 2hr option is the way to go, and there's a short stop to grab drinks (you stay in the boat). Perfect addition to a day in Strasbourg, and for a special occasion... I took the opportunity to get engaged, and our guide Jerome played a great part in photographing it all while still giving us our personal space.

Recommendation! Had booked the 1 hour tour for six people (2 hours were not offered). Booking went smoothly and with digital voucher. Meeting point would be better described as: fire station and stairs down to the peer, for example (is only in the detailed description). Punctual and nice guide. Only a small bottle of water or other drinks (payment is also welcome) in the heat would have rounded off the boat tour. The difference between the one and two hour tour was the same in the description and so we “escaped” the Vauban lock system - Dam at Petit France. Today I would book the 2-hour tour

We took the 2 hour private tour. We traveled outside of Petit France and got the chance to see and hear about some of the other buildings and landmarks in the area. We also stopped for a drink on the way back into Petit France (not included in the price). We saw many packed commercial boats and were glad we had room to spread out. My family and I really enjoyed it.
