Seine River Hop-On Hop-Off Sightseeing Cruise in Paris

See the sights from your hop-on hop-off river shuttle

A city that boasts more monuments than many other cities put together, Paris is a world-class sightseeing destination. Standout architecture, museums, art galleries and historic cathedrals line the UNESCO-listed banks of its famous Seine River, so what better way to see them than by a hop-on hop-off sightseeing cruise? Choose from a 1- or 2-day pass, and then discover sightseeing opportunities galore on your hop-on hop-off Seine River cruise.

Aboard a panoramic riverboat, with both deck and lower-deck seating, admire top city attractions, such as Notre Dame Cathedral with its gorgeous French Gothic architecture, and Hôtel de Ville where the Mayor of Paris holds office.

Pass the chic neighborhood of Saint-Germain-des-Prés with its bustling boutiques and prestigious art galleries, and perhaps hop off at the Eiffel Tower to marvel at one of the world’s most iconic feats of architecture. Your route also allows you to hop off at the famous Louvre Museum as well as Musée d'Orsay, with its unparalleled collection of Renaissance art.

With your ticket, you can remain on the boat for an entire loop (roughly 1.5 to 2 hours) or you can hop on and off at any of the nine stops along the Seine River to explore Paris’ countless delights.

Went very well would rate it a 10, no problems

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2015

Visited Paris in the early 90's, but never experienced the Hop-on-Hop-off before. I would recommend this to anyone who is in Paris for the first time. Great experience!!! You see things from the river that you may never see during a walk about in Paris. Do it again in a heart beat.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2015

This was great value for money and the views were great. When walking got too much we just jumped on the boat. I'd do it again

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2015

A great way to see the attractions of Paris. My recommendation is to do the loop once then decide where you want to hop on or off

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2015

Highly recommended. We really enjoyed using this Seine River Hop On Hop Off Cruise.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2015

It was good and exactly what I thought it would be. You are literally just waiting in a line with other tourists and hopping on a boat from one tourist spot to the other. I recommend buying the two day pass because it's not that much more expensive and on the first day, I didn't know where I was going, so I only did one spot. I enjoyed not feeling like I HAD to ride the boat, and knowing that I got to sit down at some point : I recommend it.
