General Information About Paris And Cruise
See all the main sights of Paris from two different perspectives as you undertake a cruise down the River Seine in a boat encased entirely in glass, and then embark on a comprehensive city bus tour.
Take to the streets as you board a comfortable coach to travel to the many awe-inspiring sights of the city. Discover Paris’s history and inspiring architecture as you are guided past a myriad of architectural and historical gems, the Champs Elysées, Arc de Triumph, Notre Dame Cathedral, Louvre Museum, Saint Germain des Prés, Invalides, and the Eiffel Tower.
Then, boarding at the foot of the Eiffel Tower, you will be welcomed aboard one of the three trimarans belonging to the Bateaux Parisiens, for a one hour cruise. Entirely glass fitted, with a terrace behind and gangways all round, the boat affords an excellent vantage point from which to view Paris’s many sights.
With a clear and vivid commentary accompanied by music evoking the various places and times, broadcast through individual headset, you are sure to observe the magnificent bridges of Paris. See the Pont Neuf, incongruously named the New Bridge but now actually the oldest bridge in Paris.
Reach the centre point of Paris as you pass Cité Island, which, along with Saint-Louis island, is a naturally formed island situated in the river, and on which the impressive Notre-Dame Cathedral sits. Go westwards passing in front of the Louvre Museum to reach the Eiffel Tower.
