Full description
Hop on board for a refreshingly new perspective of central Paris. Take a relaxing 1-hour river cruise of Paris and enjoy unbeatable views of the city's most memorable landmarks.

Starting at the Eiffel Tower, cruise leisurely on a comfortable boat down the river for a taste of elegant Parisian life. Glide past The Grand Palais, the Louvre, Musée d'Orsay, and Notre Dame Cathedral.

Opt for a VIP cruise in the afternoon and benefit from a live guide who will meet you before skipping the line to board. Go straight to a private VIP area and terrace at the front of the boat. Your guide will entertain you throughout the leisurely cruise with anecdotes and intriguing historical facts.

Alternatively, you can choose the audio commentary option and listen to informative stories about Paris. 

The Paris cruise goes as far as the Institute of the Arabic World at the Ile Saint-Louis before returning you to the Eiffel Tower, and it's the most relaxing way to sightsee in Paris and is the only way to explore the city free of traffic noise and congestion.

Worth the money. Very relaxing to do on a night after partying, or an evening to see all of the lights. We did in the morning and were glad that we could just sit and relax after a long night. Beautiful views. River was high so we didn't see everything, but still worth it. Champagne on the boat was a fun "when in Paris" picture.

We enjoyed our boat cruise on the Seine very much. We got to see many of the famous Paris sites in a short period of time. The audio guide was helpful in pointing out the landmarks and offering some stories to go with the attractions. It was a nice touch to have a bar and snacks available.

Well, my wife and I went on this cruise at the end of a busy sight seeing day. We hit the queue at about 8pm and only had to wait around 10 minutes. The trip wasn’t busy and we had a great seat. The commentary was very informative and interesting. This trip was great, really enjoyable and worth the money. Particularly as it got the missus in the mood - well worth it fellas ;-) Would do it again and again. And the trip.
