Bateaux Mouches are open excursion boats in Paris. The cruise offers the visitors a view of Paris city from along the Seine river. Second time visiting Paris, it was my second time cruising on the Bateaux Mouches. Instead of going at night, I went in the afternoon this time. And since it was summer, the sun sets later at 9PM.
The boats are equipped with audio announcement systems, synchronized to the boat’s movement. The commentary provides informations about the sights. Not to worry about the language, because the the commentary goes in several different languages. There are upper and lower deck seats. Upper deck seats offers best and clearer views, except there are no shelters (if it rains) and it can be windy. The lower deck seats are indoor.
Some sights include the famous Eiffle, Notre dame Cathedral, Invalides, Musee du Louvre, Grand Palais and the list goes on. Certainly, the tours offer a pleasant and relaxing way to see the city. This worths and is recommended for those who has limited time to explore Paris.
The city offers a different feel and view during the daytime and at night. During the daytime, you can see the architecture of the buildings clearly, whereas the night it offers romantic views with lights.
