Full description

Admire the city of love and lights from the water on this Paris cruise. Embark down the Seine, one of the longest rivers in France, and take in Paris’ sights on the riverside, such as the iconic Eiffel Tower and Notre Dame.

Hop on board the boat and get comfortable before taking off from Port Javel Bas. Feel free to bring your own snacks and drinks on board to fully enjoy your trip. Pets are also welcome.

First, you’ll cruise in front of the Statue of Liberty monument, followed by the Eiffel Tower, the Alexander III Bridge, the Orsay Museum, and the Louvre.

The boat will pass under the historic Pont Neuf, Europe's oldest stone bridge and the first bridge in Paris. Just beyond it, you will have a unique view of Notre-Dame Cathedral and the Paris Plages, a famous artificial beach located along the Seine.

Our guide Artur was fabulous! We got lost on the way to his boat and was late about 15 minutes. He was so nice about it and we really appreciated that! It was a lovely night time cruise and he had champagne, water soda for us plus delicious artisan polish cookies. He showed all the best sites and took pictures of our family at each one. He is very energetic and kind and capable. Highly recommend this tour!

We have been here three days and this has been the best experience of our entire trip! Artur makes all the difference on this tour as he is incredibly funny, considerate, and loves his job. It is a great combination of explaining what we see while also giving us our space to take it all in. Skip all other tours on the River and book with Artur, you won’t regret it!

Absolutely astonishing! Artur is a true hero and totally made our engagement night ☺️ he was great with communication over text, he provided the exact location, was waiting there to pick us up and was a superb boat driver. Blankets were provided, alongside a big bucket of different drinks (champagne, wine, beers, water, etc), some really nice biscuits, hot sweet tea, some sweets and a speaker to play music if we wanted. The river tour literally went all the way up and down the main part of the Seine so we were able to see all of the river sights (Eiffel tower, countless bridges, Musée D’Orsay, Notre Dame and more). Artur even slowed down on the hour to wait for the Eiffel Tower to sparkle! He took some amazing photos as well with a great camera he had on his phone. These are memories we’ll cherish for ever. If you’re on the fence about booking it - DO IT!! You won’t regret this once in a lifetime private tour of Paris
