We intentionally selected four seats on the upper rear deck so that we could have the least obstructed views of the city during the boat cruise. That being said, many other passengers on the boat blocked our views by standing directly in front/beside us. There are only so many times you can politely ask someone to step aside; I think there needs to be a representative from the boat tour to remind people take their seats.

We took a late evening cruise and it was lovely. We had purchased the skip the line tickets so boarding was easy. The cruise was about an hour and was narrated in a variety of languages. We had initially planned to do the cruise the previous evening but a problem with our accommodations prevented us so it was really wonderful that the tickets were not for a particular day and time and gave us some flexibility.

Are there stops during the Seine river tour?

The Compagnie des Bateaux-Mouches cruise does not stop. It takes a tour around the main monuments of Paris between the Eiffel Tower and the tip of Île Saint Louis. If you are considering making stops on the Seine and using the boats as a means of transport, you should rather use the Batobus shuttle service.

What monuments can you see on a river tour on the Seine?

The promenade cruise from the Alma bridge takes you around the must-see sites and monuments of Paris: the route passes through the Louvre Museum, the Town Hall, the Conciergerie, Notre-Dame de Paris, the Musée d'Orsay, the Trocadéro and of course the Eiffel Tower.

What are the tourist attractions around the Bateaux-Mouches?

Before or after a cruise on the Seine with the Bateaux-Mouches, you are in the center of Paris at an equal distance (about 1 km) from the Champs-Élysées, its luxury boutiques, its cabaret Lido de Paris, its Arc de Triomphe and the Eiffel Tower with the Pont d'Iéna at its feet and the Trocadero opposite. Next to the Alma Bridge, culture lovers will not be left out a few meters from the Museum of Modern Art of the City of Paris and the Yves-Saint Laurent Museum in particular. If you went on a night cruise on the Seine, continue the experience with a show at Crazy Horse de Paris located on the other side of Place de l'Alma at the entrance to avenue George V.

Do we need to book a Bateaux-Mouches promenade cruise in advance?

Ticket offices and automatic kiosks allow tickets to be purchased on site. By purchasing your tickets online, however, you can save yourself a (sometimes) long queue by scanning your barcodes directly at the turnstiles. This will allow you not to miss the next departure.
