Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Make your way to board your boat to start your brunch cruise. Admire the famous 12th-century Notre-Dame Cathedral from the water, from which you get a unique perspective on its flying buttresses. Continue past the neighboring Ile-Saint-Louis, a peaceful primarily-residential neighborhood, and imagine what it might be like to live there.

Pass by some of the best-known sights in Paris, easily visible from the Seine, including the Louvre Museum, the Musée d'Orsay, the Hôtel de Ville, the Place de la Concorde and of course the iconic Eiffel Tower. Everyone is assured of an excellent view, since all the armchairs on the boat face the windows, and there are pamphlets and books describing the city's major monuments if you want more insights into what you're seeing.

While you drift along the Seine River, feast on a variety of brunch dishes including French pastries, vegetables, fish, fruit and cakes. Choose from hot and cold drinks to accompany your meal, or upgrade to include a half-bottle of Champagne per couple.

Your cruise ends roughly 1.5 hours after it began, when you return to the Ile de la Cité to disembark.

Please note: From November through April high water levels on the river require the route described above to change. During this period, the cruise begins and ends near the Eiffel Tower instead of the  Ile de la Cité, and the route passes fewer sights.

My mom and I went on this cruise, and we had a fantastic time. We only barely made it! No fault of the cruise, we just got stuck on the Metro because of a strike. We took an Uber to the bridge, and were able to find the dock, no problem. The food was amazing, the amount of champagne was perfect, and I actually really liked how quiet and calm it was. It was a great time.

Leisure down the Seine
, Oct 2019
If you take this cruise, We had to go down the stairs and stand by chained door/ramp on the left. We didn’t realize the tour wasn’t guided so it would have been nice to know what we were looking at. That aside, Service was great. Food was good.

I was skeptical about this cruise. but to my delight, I was very happy with our Brunch cruise. The service, food, and beverages were all above my expectations. Be sure to save some of your Champane for your orange juice which, as mentioned in a review, does come last. No sales of additional alcohol.

The tour itself was very worthwhile; the buffet lunch was ok if you're not a fussy eater like some of my family. The cruise was lovely and you can have your photo taken (I think for an extra charge) and go out on the front of the boat yourself to take photos. Seats are all arranged around the outside of the inside cabin so everyone can see what they are passing by. The downside to this tour is where it goes from in the winter months. It would not be suitable for anyone who has difficulty in walking. The distance from the underground station Bir Hakeim to the quayside is at least a 15 minute walk. The boat company Compagnie de la Seine has no signposts along the quayside. All the instructions on your voucher say is "board your boat near the Pont de Grenelle" This bridge is a 30 minute walk from the underground station. The boat did not come in until 12.30 and we walked up and down trying to find it, no one else on any of the other boats there could help us. We honestly thought we had come to the wrong place, but I did ask you and you were less than helpful, telling me to contact the boat company. We got there on Saturday, the trip was on Sunday, and they did not answer the phone over the weekend. I think that's all I need to say.

We had fun. The food was good and the champagne was a special treat. The view was great. The orange juice was severed at the end of the meal instead of at the beginning. It was hard to get to get a second cup of coffee.
