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

Was very enjoyable to show Dad the sights from the water.

A huge kudos and thankyou to your company. We were booked to do an Eiffel Tower climb, but missed it due to a delayed flight. Your correspondent on WhatsApp was extremely helpful in offering us alternatives, and booked us on this cruise at short notice when it became clear we were not going to get up the tower. Their compassion and assistance made a stressful situation all good for us and I would have no hesitation in recommending your company to anyone else. One word for those looking at either the Eiffel Tower or the Seine River Cruise ... do not plan to take your suitcase with you as they will not allow it. Tower security said no point blank and offered no suggestions. Boat security at least gave us a place up the road where I could store it.

A lovely and relaxing river cruise experience!

My wife and I visited Paris for the first time and wanted to go on a night cruise. It was lovely to see the sights along the Seine river at night while everything was all lit up. Seeing the Eiffel Tower all lit up and sparkling was a real highlight. To hear the audio though we needed to use the free wifi, which we didn't use. So we couldn't hear any commentary unfortunately. Overall it was a pleasant cruise and a lovely, relaxing evening!

Excellent trip and thoroughly memorable with only a minor niggle

This trip really was a highlight of our long weekend - the food was very nice and the courses well timed given the relatively short serving window. The waiters were personable and courteous. One minor point - the GetYourGuide order form didn’t seem to offer a wine choice (red, white, rose) and onboard it took a while to request a different bottle. However overall highly recommended!

This was a great way to get around Paris and see the best of the sites

This was a great way to get around Paris and see the best of the sites. The boat runs a regular and reliable service from convenient points. Staff were very helpful with RER and Metro directions as well as with placed to eat. Loved it and will be booking again when we are back in Paris!

Paris: Batobus River Seine Shuttle Boat Reviewed by Josette, 08/20/2019

Excellent adventure but there was no air flow on the batobus.

The pickup process was easy, efficient and swift. The stops were well spaced and the timing great. However, there was no separate air flow on the boat so it was unbearably hot when we went as it was a warm day. Fans would make a world of difference.
