A trip to Paris, France is not complete without a boat ride up the Seine River which flows through the city.
Bateaux-Mouches are perhaps the most well known and reliable company which offers excursions on the Seine.
They have 15 boats with both an outdoor deck area and an enclosed area with large glass windows so you can see the sites while staying warm inside.
Six of their boats are restaurant boats which serve freshly prepared meals for both lunch and dinner cruises.
On the lunch and dinner cruises all the tables overlook the water so you can enjoy the views as you enjoy your meal.
Of course in the background romantic French music is played just to add to the ambiance of the City of Lights. Dinner cruises (€99-€140) leave daily at 8:30pm and lunch cruises (€55 and €29 for kids under 12 years old) on Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays at 1pm and should be booked online.
Alternatively you could skip the meal and take one of the excursion boat trips which leave regularly throughout the day (approximately every 20 minutes depending on the season) and lasts an hour and ten minutes.
The trip costs €12.5 for adults and €5.5 for kids 4-12 years old.
The cruise trips leave from Port de la Conference-Pont de l'Alma on the Rive Droite and there are no reservations, you just pay as you board the boat.
Along the way you'll see many of the Paris sites like the Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame, Palace of Justice, Concorde, St-Jacques Tower, Hotel de Ville, Palace Bourbon, Ile de la Cite, the many bridges and much more.
