See the sights from the River Seine in style on a private yacht.
By Kristen Shirley | May 5 2020
The River Seine is full of boats cruising the water, most notably the iconic Bateaux Mouches and dinner cruises. For a more intimate experience, board a private cruise on a chic Dutch Star boat with Seine Privée. The boutique tour company launched in 2018 and is operated by Parisians Philippe Cadoux and Anne Lembert, who wanted to share the beauty of their city in an ultra-chic way. The charming boat has classic French flair with varnished wood, brass touches and a teak deck, and beautiful cushions and lamps. Your voyage will take you past Place du Trocadéro, the Eiffel Tower, the Statue of Liberty and underneath many of the city’s beautiful bridges on your way to the Musée d’Orsay, Le Louvre, Notre Dame and Ile Saint Louis. On board, you can expect beautiful cuisine including platters of oysters, delicious French cheese and charcuterie and dessert served alongside vintage champagne and other drinks. If you want, you can arrange a wine-focused cruise with special tastings, have a classical musician accompany you, or hire a professional photographer to capture the moment.
