Owner description: Canauxrama offers cruises on the canals of Paris, the Seine and the Marne. Sail on the Saint-Martin Canal and discover the Paris of Parisians passing under the Bastill's vault, four double locks, two swing bridges and the centenary Lift Bridge of Crimea to go to the "Parc de la Villette". For one day cruise, discover the smallest navigable of France canal: The Ourcq, with a unique entertainment: a horse will draw the boat. Or go on the Seine river that inspoired impressionists to Chatou near "la Maison Fournaise" or on the Marne River and its famous Guinguettes!

Canauxrama offer 2.5hr long cruises along Canal Saint Martin. They cost €17 and leave from either end, Port de l'Arsenal or Bassin de la Villette. If you have already done a Seine cruise, check the brochures because some have discount vouchers for Canauxrama. The boat Marcel Carne has two decks, a small café at the back and toilets.

My wife and I took the Canauxrama boat tour of the St. Martin Canal in December 2014. We took this scenic and enjoyable ride at the end of 11 days in Paris. This was our first trip to Paris and we needed to see all the main attractions, which we did, and then we needed to find "that one more... More

Although the cruise was nice,the 2.5 hours were too long for that canal.There were huge delays with the dams and the kids were a bit bored.I would suggest a shorter cruise with canauxrama,howevere it was good.

This was an interesting trip on a glorious October afternoon. It was popular but the queue was okay and we got good roof seats. The guide was interesting and engaging, and the views along the canal gave us a less obvious view of Paris. It is worth spending time in the park at the end of the trip - especially... More

I was very impressed with this cruise. After reading on trip advisor about the dark bit near the Bastille end we were prepared and it wasn't too bad. We also knew that it was a one way trip so we planned to get off and catch the Metro for a couple of stations to Sacre Coeur and make a day... More

I have read some of the other comments and reviews of this 2 1/2 hr trip down the canal Saint Martin and can agree with both sides. It depends entirely on whether or not it rains, of course! There is seating indoors but I expect that if the boat is full, there would not be enough space. In addition, if... More

We booked the night cruise down the Seine and I would definitely do it again. All I wanted while in Paris was to tour the Seine at night and researched all the attractions and this is definitely worth it. First, I enrolled in the French Groupon so I got the tickets at a very reduced rate for us and another... More

There are many boat tours on the Seine. The reason I chose this boat company was because Rick Steves' travel book said that most of the tours are very crowded. So I went on a hunt for a boat that would not be as crowded. The boat and crew were nice, the tour along the Seine was quite beautiful (after... More

I booked the tour of the Seine, not the canal, but when I printed out my ticket in the US, I wasn't sure whether I had gotten the tour I wanted. That aside, I did have passage on a tour-hour Sunday evening tour of the Seine, its attractions and everyone watching from the shore. Tour was given in English and... More
