Tour description provided by Viator

Explore the Seine River on this fun 40-minute electric-solar boat cruise, the first of its kind in Paris. See top Paris attractions such as Notre Dame Cathedral, the Louvre Museum and the Hôtel de Ville and go around the islands of Ile la Cité and Ile St Louis. Watch a CGI video made especially for this cruise that depicts how Paris looked in medieval times. After the cruise, enjoy a drink at the bar. This is a novel way of discovering the Seine that's easy to fit into your schedule!

Meet at the foot of Pont Marie, a bridge across the Seine built in the 17th century, to board your compact and cozy electric-solar boat holding a maximum of 50 passengers. The first of its kind in Paris, your electric boat will take you on a short but illuminating cruise along the Seine River. Travel around the only two natural islands in the Seine, Ile de la Cité and Ile St Louis. Admire Paris landmarks including Notre Dame Cathedral, the Louvre Museum, the Hôtel de Ville and La Conciergerie. A CGI video made for this tour will play on two screens, depicting what medieval Paris looked like around the year 1550. Compare the famous attractions you pass today with how their spots in the city would have looked centuries ago. After your 40-minute cruise, unwind with your choice of beer, wine or a soft drink at the bar. Your afternoon or evening electric boat ride on the Seine ends at Pont Marie. From here, it's easy to explore the nearby Marais district, where many medieval buildings still remain.
