Why Travelers Choose This Tour

Settle aboard and just focus on the sights—such as the Eiffel Tower—on this no-frills, audio-guided cruise.
Explore the City of Lights with a quintessential Seine River Cruise in Paris! Choose from a variety of daily departure times to suit your sightseeing schedule, and then check in for your cruise near the Eiffel Tower. Hop aboard a popular Bateaux Parisiens riverboat, and soak up the passing sights of iconic attractions like Notre Dame, the Louvre and the Musée d’Orsay.
Glide beneath beautiful historic bridges, including the famous Pont Neuf. Even the riverbanks of the Seine are a sight to behold and have been collectively designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Along the way, a prerecorded audio guide provides commentary on the history and legends of Paris.

Amazing experience

We loved this restaurant! They presented one of the most beautiful and delicious meals I’ve ever had while paying attention to my gluten restriction.

Just ok

There was minimal speaking done and no history explanation given. It was a short ride as well. I was expecting more history.

The evening cruise was difficult to see anything. I would go earlier next time. Also it was difficult to understand the guide in English.
A nice trip

Cruise is great, getting through the confusing long lines isn't. Your voucher must be exchanged for tickets - make sure you get in the correct line, the employees sent us to the wrong line twice.
The enitre checkin process was bad

We thought we had a ticket when we bought it from viator, so we stood in the Line with tickets. The line was long and in the entrance they told us that we did not had a ticket after standing in line for an hour and we need to convert the voucher into tickets and stand in the next line without tickets. We got tickets after standing in line one more time. The entire waiting period for tickets was almost one and half hours and we got into the last cruise departing at 10-30 PM . The website voucher should be clear enough to say that we need to convert voucher into tickets. The entire experience of the cruise once when we get in was amaziing.
