Stop At: Bateaux Parisiens, Port de la Bourdonnais, 75007 Paris France

Among all the companies sailing on the Seine, Bateaux Parisiens knows how to give you a real taste of Paris. Its embarkation point, at Port de la Bourdonnais, offers a superb view of the Eiffel Tower. The entirely glassed-over boats give you an amazing panoramic view. The boat trip takes you past the most famous sites in the capital, and the commentaries let you into a few unknown secrets. You will enjoy fine French cuisine prepared daily by our chef. And our staff, who love Paris, will help you discover the real Paris. Bateaux Parisiens - Parisian in its soul as well as in its name.

Duration: 15 minutes

Stop At: Seine River, 75001 Paris France

Following the Seine through Paris is a way of enjoying a thousand different escapades on the river, its bridges and islands. Daytime or night time, Left Bank or Right Bank, you will appreciate the buzz of activity along the quaysides and the lapping of the waves. There are any number of ways to relax – aboard a boat, cycling, walking briskly, sauntering lazily, or working out, dining, dancing on barges, exploring an area between two exhibitions, taking a post-shopping break, or sunbathing in a swimsuit. You never fail to be filled with wonder at these riverbanks, classed as a world heritage site by Unesco.

Through the arch of a bridge you’ll catch sight of the Grand and Petit Palais, people fishing, mallard ducks circling in the water, the Louvre playing hide and seek with a pleasure boat, Notre-Dame looming up to the sound of a street musician playing a violin and, in the distance, the silhouette of a crane in a naval construction yard between weeping willow trees.

Paris owes its motto to the Seine, fluctuat nec mergitur – “it is buffeted by the waves but does not sink”. The Seine tells the story of Paris, from its birthplace on the Île de la Cité to the transformation of the quays at Bercy upstream and the triumphant Eiffel Tower downstream.

Duration: 2 hours

Pass By: Musee d'Orsay, 1 Rue De La Legion d'Honneur, 75007 Paris France

A museum in a train station

The history of the museum, its building, is unusual. Located in the heart of Paris, along the Seine, facing the Tuileries Garden, the museum took place in the former Orsay train station, a building built for the 1900 World's Fair. so, the first "work" of the Musée d'Orsay's collections which presents the art of the few decades that elapse between 1848 and 1914.

Pass By: Latin Quarter, 75005 Paris France

No trip to Paris is complete without a visit to the Latin Quarter in the 5th arrondissement, on the Left Bank. The area’s many cafés and restaurants are laid-back and welcoming; they are filled with Parisians, students and tourists. There are several attractions to visit, among them the Pantheon, the Musée National du Moyen-Âge, the Luxembourg gardens and museum and the Arènes de Lutèce. As you stroll through the district you will also come across the Sorbonne, the best known university in Paris; the Collège de France, the Lycée Henri IV, the shopping streets Rue Mouffetard and Rue Monge and the charming Place de la Contrescarpe. The district also has popular show venues like the Paradis Latin, the Théâtre de l’Odéon and the Caveau de la Huchette.

Pass By: Pont-Neuf, Ile de la Cite, 75001 Paris France

Lift your head and admire the sculptures when you pass under the Pont Neuf bridge, the oldest bridge of Paris!

Pass By: Cathedrale Notre-Dame de Paris, 6 Parvis Notre-Dame Place Jean-Paul II, 75004 Paris France

The Cathedral of Notre-Dame de Paris, a masterpiece of Gothic architecture, is the most visited monument in France. It was built in the Middle Ages, at the far end of the Île de la Cité. Work started in the 13th century and finished in the 15th century. Badly damaged during the French Revolution, the cathedral was restored in the 19th century by the architect Viollet-le-Duc. Its many visitors come to admire its stained glass and rose windows, the towers, the steeple and the gargoyles. They can also discover the Notre-Dame treasury and have a go at climbing the towers to enjoy a panoramic view of Paris. In 2013, Notre-Dame is celebrated its 850th anniversary. For this occasion, many events were organized and the cathedral renewed its bells with the arrival of eight new bells as well as a new great bell. Road distances from Paris in France are calculated from point 0 on the cathedral forecourt.

Pass By: French National Library (Bibliotheque Nationale de France), 11 Quai Francois Mauriac 13e, 75013 Paris France

The National Library of France, heir to the royal collections amassed since the end of the Middle Ages, is in a way the guardian of all the knowledge of the world.

On the site François-Mitterrand, a building whose four angular towers symbolize four open books, overlooking the banks of the 13th arrondissement of Paris, more than 15 million books and printed works are preserved.

It is here, born from the need to enlarge and modernize the institution, that the National Library proposes an ambitious cultural season (temporary exhibitions, conferences, readings, concerts).

Pass By: Louvre Museum, 99 rue de Rivoli, 75001 Paris France

Every trip to the capital deserves a visit to the Louvre to discover the wealth of treasures it contains. The museum houses western works of art dating from the Middle Ages to 1848, in addition to collections of ancient oriental, Egyptian, Greek, Etruscan and Roman civilizations, as well as graphic and Islamic arts. From room to room, the former royal palace reveals its masterpieces to the public: the Mona Lisa, The Raft of the Medusa, the Venus de Milo, and The Winged Victory of Samothrace. In total, there are 35,000 works to be discovered or re-discovered! With its eight hundred year old history, the Louvre has been influenced by numerous architectural trends, from the medieval fortress of the 12th century to the glass pyramid by Pei (1989). The latest addition, housing the Islamic arts section, was designed by architects Mario Bellini and Rudy Ricciotti. The undulating glass canopy covers the Visconti courtyard, flooding the 2,800 m² new wing with light. A visit to the museum is particularly pleasant at night: the Louvre is less crowded and visitors can enjoy stunning night-time views of Pei’s glass pyramid, the Cour Carrée and the Seine.

Pass By: Place de la Concorde, 75008 Paris France

You will see this famous place with its obelisk. The Concorde bridge was built with stones from the Bastille prison which was destroyed during the French revolution.

Loved this lunch cruise. The sights were beautiful and the food was so good. We had the premier service and had champagne and wine. The music was superb. We also had our pictures taken and they are some of our favorite pictures. The pics were 15 euros each.

I’m so glad I booked this cruise. It was an amazing experience with great food and entertainment. The company was organized and staffs were friendly and welcoming. I personally recommend this tour. Great way to cruise along the Seine River.

I booked premier seats Money spent on the lunch cruise is not worth it - food was terrible, service was nice, view was not a worth the trip, the live entertainment was non-existent as I could hardly hear or see. I would rather use the money and time on a nice restaurant somewhere nice. I do not recommend this tour.

River cruise was very nice. We had a window seat, so sights were clear to view. The food was much to be desired, not one of us liked that part

Great and relaxed atmosphere - superb wine and lunch and a very nice waiter! We really enjoyed the 2 Hours ride and I can highly recommend the trip. Try to book a table at the Windows - the view is it worth!

We booked this boat tour at the last minute after several days of sightseeing by walking - we thought a leisurely boat ride would be a nice break. Although not part of our original plans this turned out to be one of our favorite parts of the trip! The food was delicious, the sights were beautiful, and the staff was friendly and helpful. We had a great time!

A lovely experience. We paid a little extra for the window seat which was worth it, as it made the experience a bit more special. Good food and service and good wine options.

Great experience cruising Seine River Lunch Cruise. Multicuisine food and variety of wine was awesome !! While boarding the cruise many of the tourists including us found some issues regarding our reservation. Our names were not in the manifest and we were told to wait for nearly 20 minutes. As they had booked us the next day that was on 29.9.18 which was not possible for us. It was their technical error, but the cruise was awesome EXCEPT some noise pollution by some Tourist as they were fully drunk and was not able to control themselves. Also the wash room urinals were overflowing and there was no proper drainage and finally the attendant has to do something to clear the blockage. It was very unhygienic. Crew should see that all the things are in proper condition.

During the booking, I specifically emailed and asked for a round table for a party of 3 at the front of the boat without any obstruction of view from the left and right of my table. I received the email from the Bateaux Parisiens with confirmation that we are going to be seated right at the front of the boat. To our disappointment, we did not get it. Our table was positioned at 4th on the left hand side of the boat, with tables on our right hand side. My husband talked to the maitre'd and was told '"the view is still good". My hubby wanted to walk out but we didn't want to ruin my daughter's graduation celebration, so we had no choice but to put up with such terrible seating arrangement with the premier price paid. Overall, the food, wine and live music were good. We decided to let go of our disappointment and still enjoyed ourselves.JeeFong, Brunei
