A Bateau Mouche trip on the Seine in Paris

What to do in Paris when you have only a few hours? Taking a Bateau Mouche could be a good option. The Seine is a major river that runs through the city of Paris. Many companies offer trips for tourists in open boats alongside the river bank to see some of the major Paris attractions like: The Eifel Tower, the Louvre and the Notre-Dame cathedral. The most famous name for such a boat is a Bateau Mouche. We like the sight of such a vessel sailing by with many people on it, listening to a guide while we enjoy a walk on the river bank.

Wat kan je doen in Parijs als je slechts enkele uren vrij hebt? Het nemen van een Bateau Mouche kan een mogelijkheid zijn. De Seine is een grote rivier die recht door het hart van Parijs stroomt. Veel bedrijven bieden riviertochten aan in open boten langs vele van de belangrijkste bezienswaardigheden zoals: de Eiffeltoren, het Louvre en de Notre-Dame kathedraal. De meest gebruikte naam voor zo’n boot is de Bateau Mouche. Wij kunnen echt genieten van een wandeling langs de Seine en observeren de voorbijvarende boten vol toeristen met hun gids.

  5. Just beautiful! I don't know what I like best, the scenery or the boat!! The boat is so modern and streamlined with the glass. Have you ever been on it? I bet it is expensive!
