Owner description: This famous river flows from east to west through the heart of the city and divides Paris's Left Bank and Right Bank.

If you haven't taken a boat ride on the Seine you haven't really seen Paris because the city is built around the river. Unlike other great European capitals most of the great sights of Paris are best viewed from the river. it is beautiful at any time of day or of the year but if I had to choose a specific time I would choose sunset when buildings have a special glow.There are several companies that make the trip through central Paris and they all follow the same itinerary.

Booked an evening cruise on line. No big queues with pre-booked tickets went along about 8pm however the weather was quite bright so never got dark until about 8.30 so first half of cruise was in sunshine so lost effect of night cruise. Because there had been rain we was not able to go to Notre Dame overall a pleasant experience

One of the things we wanted to do was a Seine boat trip. I had researched that Batobus was cheapest for a basic river trip and Bateaux Mouches was cheapest with commentary. In the end, though, we used Vedettes because it was most convenient, ready to go from Pont Neuf jyst as we arrived there. It cost 14 euros for an hour trip from Pont Neuf to the Statue of Liberty and back. They normally go further but the Seine was too high. The trip was lovely, the boat was almost empty and the commentary was just right in that it told you what you were seeing with a bit of information without it feeling like a lecture! We passed the others I had researched and they were jam packed with tourists. Ours was so relaxing. Well worth the extra 50 centimes!

You can't visit Paris without stopping to admire this river. The view is fantastic and the annotate always magic

Pre-booked a dinner cruise on this river which was very disappointing as we sailed away from the center of Paris and only saw building works, the meal on board was OK but we had to fight for a window seat as the boat was changed at the last minute.
