Vedettes de Paris Review
Vedettes de Paris Review
We went on the Seine river cruise, with the tour company Vedettes de Paris, on our recent trip to Paris. This cruise starts right at the base of the Eiffel tower, which is the ideal point for a visitor because it is very easy to find it.
They offer different types of cruises, so you can choose: the Sightseeing, the Pleasure or the Snacking Cruise. We decided to take the Pleasure cruise which included a glass of champagne or a crepe with a soft drink for 19€. As this was our first day in Paris we had to try the original French pancake and it was delicious.
Discover the best of Paris in one hour. You will see historic monuments, bridges, river bangs and much more. All cruises start at the Eiffel Tower and go through the historical district. You will sample beautiful monuments on the way, such as Palais De Chaillot, Grand Et Petit Palais, Assamblée Nationale, Obélisque De La Concorde, Musée D’Orsay, Musée Du Louvre, Académie Francaise, La Conciergerie, Notre Dame, Hôtel De Ville, Institut Du Monde Arabe… and many more.

The boats depart every day of the year, approximately every 30 minutes and the cruise takes around one hour. The boats are very large with glass windows, so you can see the beautiful landmarks around you. The tour is very well organized, with multilingual commentary on board. The recordings are very informative (with a lot of interesting details) and the sound is loud and clear. The highlights were definitely the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre, Notre Dame, the Grand Palais and the beautiful bridges.
You can choose to seat indoor or on deck, where the views of all the landmarks are even more spectacular. Most of the main attractions you can find along the Seine, so if this is your first time to Paris, you should take the Vedettes de Paris river cruise because, it will give you a great perspective of all the landmarks. On the cruise you will have the time to relax and enjoy the scenery and at the same time learn a little more about the landmarks along the way. When you get off you will have an idea of where the great landmarks are and the real walking journey of Paris can begin.
We can not forget to mention that there is also a bar on the boat, where you can purchase drinks, crepes, sandwiches and other snacks. The bar is well stocked and the service at the bar is really good.
