Step by Step

A cruise on the Seine River and the Saint Martin Canal is a very original way to get a different perspective of the city. For approximately two and a half hours, you will sail comfortably through the historic canal system built by Napoleon in the early 19th century.

The tour will take you to visit, from the water, monuments located close to the banks, such as the Louvre Museum, the Ile Saint Michel or the Notre Dame Cathedral. An expert local guide will be on hand to give you all the information you need as you cruise along the marked itinerary.

This type of visit allows you to get a different view of the city, getting to know places you wouldn't otherwise know. You'll travel through dimly lit tunnels beneath the Place de la Bastille, emerge onto a romantic water boulevard or visit the legendary Parisian quarters through the locks.

You can choose to enjoy the tour on the upper deck or in the interior cabin of the cruise ship. Both cabins are equipped with seats for a more comfortable and enjoyable ride.

There is the possibility to take the tour in the morning or afternoon. You choose whether you prefer the stunning daylight or the nostalgic evening light to frame your visit.
