You can take it for the day time or the night. We took it right after the sunset. It has both English and French. You can buy the ticket online first to save you time waiting to buy the ticket there. The cruise gave you a basic idea of what's worth seeing and how far they are from each other

We took the boat cruise and the scenery along the river was beautiful at night. It was a bit chilly when we went, but nothing a warm jacket couldn't fix. It was a fun way to see the city.

We were on a bus tour and took a boat ride on the River Seine. It was beautiful. We got many great pictures of the bridges and historic buildings. They take your picture and you can purchase it at the end.

It wouldn't be Paris without the Seine and its bridges. Take a cruise to appreciate the river and the buildings alongside it. It may be touristy but it's the thing to do. Several companies give you the choice of which kind of boat to take. You may also walk along the river in many places (attention: don't be shocked if... More

What more can be said about the Seine River that hasn't been personified, touted, sang, written, or just shared with others,...than find any way possible to enjoy the beauty and breadth of this magical waterway. It's rippling current will transport you somewhere in time. It's beauty and serenity will soothe both your mind and heart. Somehow that river is itself... More

The building along the Seine are so beautiful when you take a nite Bateau Mouche. They look so different than they do during the day. All along the banks of the Seine, there are people dancing, walking, and having a great time. The Eiffel Tower lights go off each hour at it is an amazing site to see.

This should be high on your list. Take a boat that has a tour guide. It makes a big difference. This winding river is wonderful to look at and wonderful to ride!
