Bateaux Mouches: Paris River Tour with Live Commentary

The Seine River in Paris offers a unique perspective of the City of Light. Flowing past some of the city’s greatest attractions, the river is great for cruises. On your next trip, book a Paris river tour to experience the lovely waters and the exquisite sights on offer.

Discover the city on a Paris river tour

With 23 million visitors every year, Paris is the most popular tourist destination in the world. As such, the city streets are prone to huge crowds. Those looking for a quieter and more peaceful experience, the Seine river cruise is the best option. During the tour, you get to enjoy views of the Louvre, Notre Dame Cathedral, d’Orsay museum and much more.

Cruise the Seine and see the sights

The Paris river tour starts near the Louvre Museum. Next, your boat proceeds toward the Notre Dame Cathedral. Keep an eye out for these attractions during the cruise. The famed glass pyramid of the Louvre is invisible, due to a wall blocking the sight. However, you can still see the rest of the Museum. The sight of the Eiffel Tower, the tallest Paris structure, is enchanting, especially when you look at it from the Seine cruise.

As the boat approaches the eastern face of Notre Dame, appreciate the Gothic architecture of the cathedral’s buttresses and the tall spires. The stunning construction is bound to catch your eye, surpassing all your expectations about its beauty.

Next, take a look at the seven large windows between the two clock towers of the d’Orsay Museum. Additionally, history buffs love seeing the Conciergerie, the site of Marie Antoinette’s imprisonment before her subsequent execution. The imposing construction of the Conciergerie with its towers is architecturally quite different from all the other attractions.
