The classic and unmissable river excursion boats called Bateaux Mouches or the more intimate experience offered by Riva! Book your stay at the Hotel Les Tournelles and get ready to embark on a voyage along the other most beautiful avenue in the world...


The famous Bateaux-Mouches invite you to see Paris in a different way

Enjoy an unforgettable cruise on the Seine! On the itinerary is a 1 hour and 10 minute journey covering some 15 km in the heart of the capital. Throughout the duration of this river voyage the most beautiful and emblematic monuments of Paris will parade before your eyes. Although best in pleasant weather, this cruise is just as enjoyable when it’s cool because the extensively glazed cabin is heated in winter and air-conditioned in the summer, thereby ensuring optimal comfort whatever the outside temperature. However, to admire the most exceptional panorama of the quays and world-famous buildings and monuments of Paris, step out on the upper deck; you’ll not regret it.

You can also opt for a lunch or dinner cruise aboard these famous boats. Whether by day or night your voyage of discovery will offer a gourmet meal based around fresh produce and inspired by traditional French cuisine, served in an exceptional setting. During night cruises, the boat's powerful lights illuminate the banks of the Seine, bringing you the unforgettable spectacle of Paris illuminated for your pleasure. Your dinner will be served amidst a warm and refined atmosphere.


Riva boats; the Seine just for you

A private cruise through the heart of the City of Light awaits you aboard a Riva boat. The Rolls Royce of water craft, these legendary yachts and motor boats with their varnished wooden slats and materials of the highest quality came to international prominence in Saint-Tropez in the 1960s. These fine craft began to be produced in the early 1950s by the Italian industrialist Carlo Riva and were subsequently rocketed to fame thanks to the approval of stars such as Brigitte Bardot, Sean Connery, the Shah of Iran, and Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor. A symbol of luxury, elegance and refinement, one of these prestigious vessels will take you for a fabulous trip on the Seine from the Eiffel Tower to the Ile Saint-Louis, allowing you to get a fresh perspective on the most beautiful monuments of Paris. Your cruise captain will take care of all your desires and provide a commentary during this exceptional ride. You can benefit from bespoke services for any occasion, be it a business breakfast, a birthday, a marriage proposal or just an outing with your family or friends.
