  • Take one hour to cruise the waterway at the heart of Paris, and enjoy the ever-changing spectacular views of this city's famous monuments
  • Discover the Parisian history and architecture by listening to the fascinating commentaries
  • Easy access! The magical journey starts right at the foot of the Eiffel Tower

Enjoy panoramic views of the Notre Dame Cathedral, the Musée d'Orsay, and many more UNESCO World Heritage Sites from the waters of the Seine. Hop on for an unforgettable trip through the heart of Paris.

This sightseeing cruise is a charming journey through the heart and soul of the City of Lights. You'll really get to know Paris as you pass beneath the famous Pont Neuf and other elegant bridges, gaze at Notre Dame Cathedral, and watch the city in action - all while floating along the UNESCO World Heritage-listed banks of the Seine River.

The captivating audio commentary will fill you in on the architects, generals, lovers and artists who helped shape Paris's unique history.

There's no better way to feel part of the 'real' Paris than stepping onto the bateau under the Eiffel Tower and set off on your cruise.

After heading downriver for half an hour the boat swings around, and makes its lazy way back to the Eiffel Tower – giving you the chance to slip back into the world of the city dwellers. It's the perfect capsule activity.

Very good trip

It was really nice. I couldn’t make it for the day I scheduled it for and they happily moved it to the next day for me, which made me happy. I’d definitely recommend you go for it.

A good experience, but I think some improvements could be done in the spoken guide. They use Wifi and expect you to connect from your phone and listen to it, I had no much battery left and I could take pictures if I wanted to listen to the guide.

It would better in daylight. If dark, less can be seen.
If you are on one side of the boat, you won't see anything of the other part.
Recommended although.

A good value for money visit. A great way to see Paris and to rest your feet from walking for a bit! Need to bear in mind that you can access the audio part of the cruise inside the boat and not on the top deck.

Super efficient and very nice way to see the city. If you go in the fall take a jacket it’s a little chilly. Only downside was the audio guide for English which you connect to via the boat provided wifi kept dropping but the views and picture were great! Highly recommend.

It was really a scenic view of Paris in a capsule tho it really could have been better if the the boat had amplified its explanation of the surroundings while on cruise.
