“See it by day and by night”
Reviewed June 5, 2014

This is so peaceful. I suggest getting a BatoBus (sp?) hop on/hop off pass and enjoying the entire circular route. I know other reviews mentioned doing it early in your visit and I agree. This company doesn't do a night cruise but we caught the last boat leaving the Eiffel Tower and it was dusk. By the time we finished the last loop, the bridges were lit up and it was beautiful. We used our same hop on/hop off from earlier in the day and there was no additional charge.

“Paris IS the city of lights”
Reviewed June 5, 2014

The cruise down the Seine was one of the highlights of our stay in France. We sat almost at the very tip of the front of our boat and had marvellous views of the banks bridges and people lining the river. The food wine and champagne were great but compared to the view definitely took a back seat. Our turn around in the river signalled our cruise was half over, but the best was yet to come. As we approached the Eiffel Tower for the second time, it began to sparkle with lights. The captain could not have timed it better as a chorus of oohs and aahs echoed amongst the passengers. We had heard about the lighting effect that has been installed on the tower, but to see it in real life was simply breathtaking.

“Go and have a boat trip along the Seine”
Reviewed June 5, 2014

We took the occasion and booked a dinner on the Seine. What a great idea, it was the highlight of the journey! We entered the boat at Pont d'Arts, next to the Louvre and had a trip along the Seine (with a delicious dinner) during the three following hours. We saw many of the most important buildings and monuments of Paris: Notre Dame, Musée D'orsay, Le Louvre, Pont Alexandre III, the Tour Eiffel (great views!!! at night), the small Liberty Statue, Invalides etc. It is really worth to spend some time and money in such an activity!!!

“Great Trip”
Reviewed June 5, 2014

I love travel. Back in May 2011, this trip on the Seine was glory. To view Paris from the River completes the excursion after touring the sites on land. What a marvellous way to relax in the company of a loved one and allow the mind to wander in the awe of the serene surroundings.
Photography is a must.

“Up The River Without a Paddle”
Reviewed June 4, 2014

A river cruise is mandatory for the first time Paris visitor. It helps to get ones bearings and to see how the major attractions relate to each other. There are many to choose from. If you have a museum pass, you get a discount on some. Board at Pont de L-Alma near the Eiffel Tower.
