River Seine Sightseeing Cruise and the Paris Illuminations

Experience the best of the magical Paris illuminations as you enjoy a leisurely evening cruise along the historic River Seine before a guided drive with wonderful night time views of all the world famous buildings, boulevards, squares and monuments.

Paris is arguably at its most beautiful in the evening and this relaxing tour starts with a leisurely one-hour cruise along the Seine, taking you past some of Paris’s most famous landmarks including the Eiffel Tower, the grand Notre Dame Cathedral and the Louvre Museum.

Your cruise is fully narrated ensuring that you do not miss any of the landmarks and you will also learn how history has shaped the capital's present-day skyline.

On conclusion of your cruise, transfer to a coach for a scenic drive through the City of Lights. See the illuminated Arc De Triomphe, bustling Champs Elysees, Place de la Concorde Square, Place Vendome, Opera, the Trocadero, Les Invalides, and more magical views of Notre-Dame, the Louvre Museum and the Eiffel Tower, the eternal symbol of Paris.

During the summer months, you will have the chance to enjoy the sun setting from the deck of your cruise boat.
