It was night.... and the last ship was leaving in the daytime. Still returning to dock, it was daytime.... They should not sell something that is not so. Thank you

The activity on the boat was good. The guide narrated in several languages some icons of the city. The App to listen to the audio guide was not easy to download and the use was not easy due to the slow internet connection, so we did not use it. In conclusion, the boat ride is a massive experience that allows you to know the city from another perspective, having the possibility to see several of the icons of the city in a fast and different way.

Great way to see the city! I would have enjoyed it more if the boat wasn't so large; it was far too noisy and people weren't paying attention to the narration, which was too bad.

Very well priced experience, which gave us a pleasant trip along the Seine, with lovely glimpses of Paris sights and sounds.

These tickets are valid until 11 Jun, 2025.

Magical views of Paris under the starry-lit sky

After the sun sets, make your way to the Port de la Bourdonnais, located at the foot of the Eiffel Tower, and embark on a magical 1-hour nighttime cruise along the Seine River. The boats proceed east on the Seine, heading in the direction of Notre Dame Cathedral. This section travels by well-known locations including the Musée d'Orsay and the Louvre Museum, both of which have stunning nighttime illumination. Boats may slow down further along to admire the golden flame of the Statue of Liberty replica on Île aux Cygnes and the shimmering Pont Alexandre III bridge.

You will then make a 180-degree circle at Notre Dame Cathedral on Île de la Cité island before returning west to the Eiffel Tower. The elaborate Hôtel de Ville, the famed Conciergerie, and the Île Saint-Louis island, known for its 17th-century architecture, are a few more of the most famous landmarks in Paris that are visible.

Sit back and relax

Your flexible ticket allows you to board the cruise anytime you’d like within operating hours - meaning you don’t have to worry about any logistics! As you cruise down this UNESCO-listed Paris river, enjoy exhilarating moonlit views from the boat’s terrace and exterior passageways and learn about the city with live commentary via your complimentary audio guide.
