With your Seine River Cruises experience the true heart of French City which lies in its waterways, apart from sights of The Eiffel Tower and Notre Dame. Bordering 10 of Paris’ 20 arrondissements, it was no accident that this city found its home by the river. Parisians learnt the importance of water early on, using the River Seine for commerce and early transport. Still a working river today, the River Seine serves it’s purpose dutifully, its canals used for flushing out the city’s stale water. Beyond it’s practicality, it completes the Parisian landscape, it’s waterways injecting a romantic charm and complementing the city’s classical architecture. Offering spectacular views of the Paris’ most famous sights, what better way is there to take in the magical City of Lights than by Seine River Cruises along the river itself?
Ditch traditional tours. Opt for a Seine cruise to experience the historic river in all its glory. Sights are particularly magical at sunset so make sure your Seine cruise tickets accommodate a longer ride into the evening.
Don't take a dip. It may look pretty, but under the surface of the water lies a host of undesirable nasties. Authorities enforce no swimming laws for health and safety reasons, so keep your cruise experience above the water.
See the City of Lights sparkle. Evening cruise dinners are perfect for night owls looking for something more exciting than your average dinner date. Spectacular views and a chance to partake in a glass of Champagne or two, guarantees a romantic night.

Best time to visit
Paris keeps its romantic appeal year-round, but River Seine cruises are best experienced in the quieter months of late August and early September, when most tourists have left the capital and pleasant weather still prevails. Opt for the magical experience and see the City of Lights sparkle.
Spanning 12 kilometres of the city and bordering 10 arrondissements, there’s so many ways to reach and explore the River Seine. We recommend hopping off one of the close metro underground statons, like the Musée du Louvre, and strolling from there. No game plan is necessary for this beautiful site, simply follow the banks, and see what you uncover.
Money saving tips
Exploring the river itself is, of course, free. Complement your stroll with a cruise along the river for an extra-special day. Booking Seine cruise tickets in advance will be your best bet for cost-saving.
