Overview

See Paris’s iconic landmarks and lesser-known gems from the water on this 2.5-hour combo cruise down the River Seine and Canal Saint Martin. Glide past riverside monuments like Notre Dame and the Louvre, and then explore a side of Paris many tourists miss as you float through the tunnels, bridges and locks of the city’s historic canal system. Live onboard commentary from your guide illuminates the story of these picturesque waterways built by Napoleon. Choose from several daily departures to suit your sightseeing schedule.
  • Combined Seine River Cruise and Paris Canals Tour
  • Cruise along the Seine River past Paris' riverside monuments
  • Behind-the-scenes view of Paris from its ancient canals and locks
  • Choice of morning and afternoon tours
  • Illuminating commentary from your expert guide
Get a perspective on Paris unseen by many visitors on this river and canal cruise. Make your way to the departure point near either the Musée d'Orsay or the Villette Basin (depending on departure time selected), and settle into a seat in the inside cabin or outside deck of a specially designed sightseeing boat. 

As you cruise down the gentle currents of the River Seine, admire some of the city’s most iconic monuments including the Louvre Museum, Institute of France, the ancient city center of Ile-Saint-Louis and the legendary bell towers of Notre Dame Cathedral. Live onboard commentary provides interesting background on passing attractions. 

Enter the mouth of the narrower Canal Saint Martin to begin a cruise through a historic canal system built under the direction of Napoleon in the early 1800s. Travel through a dimly lit tunnel beneath the French Revolution site Place de la Bastille, emerging onto a romantic watery boulevard. Learn the history behind old, authentic Parisian neighborhoods as you travel through a series of locks and lovely footbridges. 

The 2.5-hour tour concludes at either the Musée d'Orsay or the enchanting gardens of the Villette Basin.

Really enjoyed this tour didn't really like how many locks we had to go through but it was nice seeing other parts of Paris. It was a little challenging to find the start location but we managed. Well worth it with how much we paid.

Wonderful tour! We had a blast going through the locks and under the Bastille! The two man crew were very nice and accommodating! Seeing areas of Paris that are not on the usual tours was very nice!

Great experience. Going through the locks. The underground canal. If you have done the Seine tours, this is a great addition.
