Wonderful Experience

We are repeat customers because we love the service and experience from the private cruise. The nighttime cruise was wonderful to see the City of Lights and enjoy some cheese/wine while taking in the twinkle lights of the Tour de Eiffel. Highly recommend our Captain Patrick and the entire family (children, too) raved about the boat ride! Thank you for helping us create such wonderful memories!

Seine boat ride

We had our private cruise with Patrick yesterday and it was the best! He was super kind and considerate of everything. He had the coolest facts about what we saw and we really enjoyed with him! Despite the rocky weather, it was a really fun experience!

Will definitely recommend this to tourists in Paris!

Beautiful views! Great cruise!

We had the best experience on this cruise for our last night in Paris (family of 6 adults). Pre-cruise communication was prompt and we were able to get details on where to park and finding the dock was easy. Everything was ready when we arrived a few minutes early. We departed from the Pont d’Issy location. There was even a food hall on the corner where we found eatery options for dinner before we left. Pontoon type boat was modern, comfortable, clean, and spacious. It was lovely to see Paris from the water and we had unobstructed views of all the major sites. The pilot was a lovely tour guide and showed all points of interest and shared interesting facts. We highly recommended this cruise for a relaxing, evening tour of Paris from the River Seine. Thank you for closing out our time in Paris with this fabulous cruise.

Best activity if short on time

Our skipper was the best host on the boat. Great navigation skills and photography. The boat was lovely and perfect size for our group of 8. Got up nice and close to the Eiffel tower and Notre Dame and seeing all the beautiful buildings. Couldn’t recommend it highly enough, perfect thing to do in Paris. Nice and easy booking system and speedy replies

One of the best journeys experiences we had!

On October 28, my girlfriend and me attended the Paris river cruise, and it was one of the best journeys experiences we had. Our header informed us of the site and gave us some good laughs during the trip. Although it was raining, this did not interrupt our experience, and we enjoyed every second of our tour. I would highly recommend this to anyone, especially for a romantic time! It was absolutely phenomenal!

Super ervaring met geweldige kapitein

Onze kapitein maakte deze boottocht heerlijk onvergetelijk. Het is een bonus op de boot!
(Afgezien van het feit dat je natuurlijk een kapitein op een boot nodig hebt ;)
Genoeg over de stad en haar prachtige monumenten in het Engels (of Frans).
Wat ik op prijs stelde, was dat hij heel goed wist wanneer hij iets moest zeggen en wanneer hij het niet moest doen.
En uiteraard heeft hij ons zeer vakkundig rondgeleid op de Seine.
Hartelijk bedankt! Ik kijk uit naar de volgende keer.

Excellent time!

I got married on September 23, 2023. Following the wedding, we reserved a river cruise with My Paris River down the Seine. Our captain was amazing. He was such a great, funny, and knowledgeable person with a great personality.
Even though he stated his English wasn’t that great, it was perfect! He did a fantastic job of bringing us along to visit all the important locations, explaining every minor detail, and making the trip as a whole an excellent experience. The boat is very comfortable, with a wonderful scenic ride on the water, and the skipper basically said whatever we wanted to do was ok; we even got to drive the boat! I can’t recommend this tour enough; I would do it again in a heartbeat. I would suggest this boat excursion over the crowded barges with hundreds of people, so once again, thank you.

Lovely Sunday cruise

Late Saturday evening I had the idea of a private Sunday cruise on the Seine.
Didn’t think it would be possible but I took the chance and by midnight mailed MyParisRiver.
By 1 in the night was booked after several mails with Louis.

Sunday 1500 o’clock Patrick gave my son, wife and I an absolutely greats time on the Seine. Patrick was a good story teller in English and we learned things we didn’t knew about the great monuments along the Seine.
We loved the cruise and we loved the company of Patrick.
So thanks guys for a big and lovely experience.

Amazing time!

My partner and I booked a river cruise along the Seine with MYPARISRIVER for Monday the 14th August, we booked it last minute on a whim and Louis was very accommodating and explanatory via email prior to the day.
Our guide/captain was Patrick, and he was just lovely! He spoke English very well which was nice for us as our french was limited. He did an amazing job of taking us along to see all the major sites, explaining all the intricate details, and made the entire trip an amazing experience overall. Thank you Patrick and thank you MYPARISRIVER, I would recommend this boat tour over the packed barges with hundreds of people any day.

Fabulous River Cruise

We had an absolutely fabulous time on our private river cruise. Our family of four loved it. Relaxing, fun and informative. Jerome was so accommodating and slowed the boat down for photos. Thank you for a wonderful evening! Highly recommend as it was the highlight of our trip!

Beautiful afternoon on the Seine

My husband. daughter, and I did a beautiful afternoon cruise in early May with our captain Jerome. He was amazing; friendly and knowledgeable, yet also knew when to let us visit and enjoy our wine, strawberries, and sweets. Boat was beautiful and safe, and there were so many amazing things to see and hear about. Jerome is excellent at his job! One of our highlights was to see his wife and son waiting to wave to him, and us, as we went by. One of the best things we did in Paris, by far. Thank you, Jerome!

We had planned our honeymoon 15 years late, but not forgotten. I had made a reservation months before our vacation as a suprise. After the 2 hour boat ride with our Captain Nolwenn, my wife said this was the most romantic thing she could have imagined. I want to thank this company, Cedric the supervisor and especially
Nolwenn the boat captain that took us on the most romantic boat ride in Paris France. If anyone leaves paris without doing this, then you left the best part of Paris undone. Bob from Las Vegas

This boat was perfect for our material

We asked My Paris River to help us and take measures and photos all over the river Seine (East part of Paris). The team (Benjamin and Louis) was on board to help and arrange. Perfect work! Contract completed.

How SWEET it was !

From start to finish, our experience with My Paris River was flawless !

We departed at 5:45 in front of the Eiffel Tower and what a way for my niece to celebrate her 16th birthday !

We enjoyed beverages we had brought on board and I requested a chocolate cake and it was delicious ! A truly special and enchanting way to view Paris ! We were delighted by the City of Light especially by night !

Everything was thought of to make our time aboard easy and comfortable!

Benjamin was a fun and insightful guide.

I highly recommend MY PARIS RIVER as the most special way to see Paris!

Merci Beaucoup!

Excellent experience

Very pleasant walk of 1h30 done at the end of November with my work team, at night.

Comfortable boat with bench seats. We were able to bring our own aperitif (drinks, etc.) and we were able to put our own music on the speakers (possibility to dance!).

The skipper also acts as a guide and tells the story of the different monuments that we come across throughout the trip on the Seine.

Very appreciable.

I highly recommend !

An exceptional moment

For a friend’s 30th birthday, she wanted an exceptional moment and My Paris River lived up to her expectations!

Our skipper was very attentive throughout the cruise, was able to respond to all our requests and even told us some historical anecdotes on the various monuments of Paris.

The boat is very comfortable, plaids are available, we were able to plug in our music and even dance!

I highly recommend My Paris River for a wonderful time on the Seine!

I will repeat the experience without hesitation !!

Thanks again !

My 50th birthday on the river Seine

From Beaugrenelle to the Jardin des Plantes …

Wonderful ride on the water, on a very comfortable pontoon boat, covered and therefore allowing you to see without feeling cold in mid-November …

Benjamin, the skipper, is very nice, giving (if you want) historical and anecdotal explanations of what you discover throughout the trip. I had ordered Champagne: good, fresh, practical (flutes provided). I was able to bring some little things to snack on. We were also able to put our music on.

At nightfall, Benjamin put LED mood lights on both tables.

In short, my 10 guests and I had a wonderful time of an hour and a half !!

It was magic … and I can only recommend it!

Romantic & Professional Private Seine River Boat Cruise

I arranged a private boat cruise down the Seine on a Sunday evening at 6:00pm for my now Fiancée and myself.

It was very easy to contact Benjamin and set the time and date – he was very professional and prompt in his responses and even helped me plan the perfect moment to propose during the boat ride. He arrived promptly at 6:00pm at the pick-up spot and the entire cruise went perfectly. The boat was clean and comfortable – we brought a bottle of wine to enjoy and the boat included glasses and a corkscrew.

Benjamin made us feel at ease while providing interesting historical information about Paris and the local bridges and buildings.

Would highly recommend for a private, romantic setting or a group of friends looking to explore Paris in a unique way!

Rediscovering Paris

We live in the suburbs close to Paris and we still had not taken a walk on the Seine with the children, and it was great. Quiet with the family, very good rhythm, our host was very pleasant, he gave us a very interesting tour of the capital with anecdotes and explanations on certain expressions that we did not know.

The guide was also impeccable with the children knowing how to interest them in the visit.

A superb ride! Must do

A dream cruise!

A dream cruise under the setting sun through the most beautiful Parisian monuments.

A captain with great care, very available for the organization and pleasant company. Possible to bring snacks and drinks on board (be careful, it rocks! 😉 and plug in your music to enhance the tour.

In short, an exceptional service, we would almost want to keep it quiet so that it remains confidential!

Good continuation and long journey to My Paris River!

We had a great time with friends. Welcomed by a smiling, friendly and above all passionate skipper, we rediscovered Paris. The boat is comfortable and everything is planned to feel good there throughout the duration of the cruise (music, Champagne and even plaids for the most cautious …)

Superb 2-hour walk in the heart of Paris at the start of spring.

We rediscovered Paris from a unique point of view!

I had already done boat cruises on the Seine with my friend, but the intimate setting is really a plus. We were accompanied by Benjamin, the elite skipper, who knew how to make us laugh and educate us around anecdotes about Parisian monuments, but also let us enjoy this moment between us.

The boat is very comfortable and provided with plaids (in the evening it can still be cold!) And the service (champagne and petits fours) was perfect.

In addition, we were able to position ourselves ideally to take pictures.

Thanks again to Benjamin for this magnificent cruise in the heart of Paris, it is an experience that we will not forget!

I highly recommend the story between the swans and Louis XIV …

A Capital experience!!!

Dear readers, I am taking the trouble to write to you, once is not customary, because the service offered by a friendly young skipper with a well-trimmed beard and white teeth is remarkable and quite surprising. Indeed, I invited my wife for her birthday at the beginning of December with largely negative outside temperatures. We were not bothered by the cold because the boat is very well equipped with its awning and the many blankets provided. We took the 2h30 package which allowed us to rediscover the capital at nightfall. The skipper, like us, is a lover of Paris, of its history and … of its stories … indeed, to the sound of a moving Edith Piaf, Benjamin gave us a lot of information and anecdotes about famous monuments and the characters who have marked Paris.

In addition, he took pictures of us whenever we wanted, something unthinkable in the riverboats or other Japanese operating tours.

So you, wanting to have a good intimate moment in the middle of the City of Lights, do not hesitate any longer and sail in peace on the meanders of the Seine …

Long live in Paris! Long live My Paris River !!!

An unforgettable cruise

Nothing but superlatives: As the cruise was a pretext to celebrate an important event, I looked for a team that I could count on 100%. I couldn’t find better than Marianne and Benjamin: they were a great help during the months leading up to the cruise and always answered all my questions very quickly, whether by email or phone. During the cruise, we learned a lot about Paris, while enjoying good champagne and beautiful music. A big thank-you !
