Seine River Cruise and Paris Canals Tour

This tour is guaranteed to bring out the romantic in every Paris visitor. You will drift down the famed Seine River and along Paris’ winding canal network, while taking in the city’s most spectacular icons from a unique perspective.

It is also an extremely enjoyable and relaxing way to orientate oneself with the monuments, sights, bridges and icons of Paris. From the cruise you will see such spectacular sights as the Louvre, the Eiffel Tower and the Notre Dame Cathedral – just to name a few!

You will also enjoy winding through the intimate and quiet canals of Paris, built by Napoleon Bonaparte in the early 1800s. A highlight of the canals is the most gorgeous “boulevard” in Paris, the Canal Saint Martin’s 3-mile picturesque – and quintessentially Parisian – stretch of the network. This really is a side of Paris regular tourists miss out on. The 19th-century architecture seems untouched and is splendid fuel for the imagination.

Boat tours along the Seine River vary, with some offering full commentary and some more atmospheric, where you can enjoy fine French cuisine and wine as you float along the waterways of Paris. Because of the gentle pace of the cruise, a Seine River Cruise and Paris Canals Tour is perfect for people of all ages.

The best time of year to enjoy this scenic tour is May through September, where you can soak up the warm sun and fresh air on the open deck.
