About
Welcome to 2024. A big change in our small family company. After general renovations and replenishment of the fleet, all our boats are luxurious :) From May 2024. all our boats will have a roof to protect against sun and rain :) Our small boat has become luxurious and still accommodates a maximum of 5 passengers, but we also have new boats, larger, more luxurious, more stable and spacious, great audio system - ones that accommodate 8 passengers. View our boats in the gallery. Enjoy a tourist cruise and beautiful views of the Seine (Statue of Liberty, Eiffel Tower, Pont Alexandre 3, New Bridge, Notre Dame Cathedral, Paris Plage ...) Excellent as a surprise gift to celebrate a birthday or outing with friends. Admire the city of love and lights from the water on this Paris cruise. Embark down the Seine, one of the longest rivers in France, and take in Paris’ sights on the riverside, such as the iconic Eiffel Tower and Notre Dame. Hop on board the boat and get comfortable before taking off from Port Javel Haut ( in Paris city, face Statue of Liberty). Feel free to bring your own snacks and drinks on board to fully enjoy your trip. Pets are also welcome. First, you’ll cruise in front of the Statue of Liberty monument, followed by the Eiffel Tower, the Alexander III Bridge, the Orsay Museum, and the Louvre. The boat will pass under the historic Pont Neuf, Europe's oldest stone bridge and the first bridge in Paris. Just beyond it, you will have a unique view of Notre-Dame Cathedral and the Paris Plages, a famous artificial beach located along the Seine. After your scenic cruise around Paris, return to the Port of Javel Haut. Please download the "Google maps aplication" and open the link I am sending you in message. This is the correct location for our trip. Please use only my location. Dond forgot phone with service for google maps ( for finding mitting spot).

      A wonderful tour that the “big boats” can’t match
      We had a wonderful time! Our host provided a knowledgeable and friendly Seine River tour that included a generous spread of refreshments to enjoy throughout the experience. We made several stops for individual and group photos in front of landmarks. They delivered a wonderful time that the “big boats” simply cannot match.

      A great private experience on the Seine
      We booked this experience as part of our honeymoon and we are so glad we did! Artur’s son was very friendly and provided a wonderful assortment of drink options and cookies for us to enjoy. We were one of the only small/private boats on the Seine on a Friday night which made it even more cool, truly one of the only opportunities to get to experience the Seine in such a private and personalized manner. We highly recommend!

      Beautiful trip and wonderful guide/driver!
      We really weren’t sure what we were getting, this was booked with our travel agent as part of a two week itinerary so we didn’t have all the specifics and kind of thought we were going on a big boat with hundreds of people. We were having a tough time finding it, so I called and next thing I knew this polite boy on a bike found us and walked us to the boat! I was a little surprised when it was smaller, just because we didn’t realize what had been booked - but what a wonderful surprise it was!! A true family operation! The owner and his daughter were our drivers/guides and were wonderful. We were on a 9:30lm cruise and it was just beautiful! The owner was great, but his daughter was a true gem! Loved her! Book this trip - you wont regret it!

      Lovely family-owned business creating unforgettable experiences on the seine
      This is a lovely family-owned business that provided us a safe, lovely, fun, and unforgettable experience. Truly cannot convey the care and attention that was demonstrated by Artur and his son before, during, and after our boat ride. It was a bit chilly that evening and blankets were provided for us. We learned a great deal about different structures as we passed by them and were able to take gorgeous photos. If your tour is shared with others be aware that they provide a lovely experience capturing photos of everyone which does require shifting seats fairly quickly so everyone gets that picture perfect moment. In regards to arrival: Please listen to Artur's insight about departure time and be sure to give yourself plenty of wiggle room when arriving so that you can find the boat. Lastly, I think what impressed us the most on our shared boat tour was that both parties (group of 3 and group of 2) all consisted of women and Artur waited with us at 11pm as we waited for our ubers to arrive. It was just going that extra mile that blew us away. They truly took great care with us. I would easily repeat the experience again and can't recommend them enough. Thank you Artur!

      Personal experience away from the crowds
      Artur was a very caring boat captain and guide, wanting to give us the best experience possible, including capturing photos of us in ideal sites along the Seine while keeping within the limits boats are permitted. We saw all the sights, enjoyed snacks and drinks but were in our own cocoon, away from large tourist crowds. Just be sure to dress for a boat and arrive in time to find the starting point.

      A great way to see the sites of Paris. Artur was the perfect host. He has a lot of knowledge with a great sense of humour. Artur and his son definitely know great customer service with all the little extras at no extra charge. Would HIGHLY recommend.

      Private boat ride
      Absolutely amazing tour. Highly recommend. An absolute must do! Our Tour guide was amazing. He is a lovely man. His English is great and has a lot of of valuable knowledge about Paris and it’s sites. We gained a lot of knowledge about Paris and managed to see so much of the city in a single tour. The tour was a lovely length. We saw sunset as well as the Eiffel Tower sparkle. Our tour guide took lovely photos of us and airdropped them to us immediately after the boat ride which was lovely. He is a very talented photographer. He really pays attention to detail which made the experience even better. He had blankets and pastries and drinks and umbrellas for us. The food and drinks were a lovely touch! The pastries were delicious and the tea so tasty! Highly recommend this above a ferry!

      A fun two hour river tour.
      Artur looked after us very well and took some wonderful photos. His knowledge of Paris and the sights along the Siene was appreciated. We had a semi-private tour with a nice young couple (Justin & Monica) and there was plenty of space.

      Great experience! Arthur was an awesome guide… he took photos, and provided champagne and sweets at no additional cost. He provided great info about the city, and he really made the trip memorable. Highly recommended!

      Amazing boat cruise
      The boat tour was the highlight of my trip to Paris. Artur was a friendly and personable host. The photos taken by him were amazing and such a good memory to take back home. Highly recommend this boat cruise over any of the larger commercial ones!

    This was one of the highlights of our trip. Our family of 4 ( kids 14 and 12) booked the 9:30am morning boat cruise. It was not crowded at all with all the bigger boats you see later in the day and it felt as if we had the Seine to ourselves. Artur was amazing as we were actually about 25 min late- Our own fault as we missed our train due to crowding in the metro. It was early in our Paris stay and we underestimated rush hour in Paris. Artur was easy to communicate with by text and he waited for us and didn’t miss a beat getting us on our way. We were so happy and surprised that he took photos of our family so we didn’t even have to worry about having our phones out and could enjoy the moment. This was a well worth whole event for our family and I would certainly do it again and recommend to anyone going to Paris.

    A morning ride on the Seine is a wonderful way to see Paris from a different perspective. There are plenty of large tour boats to take, it come on, you’re in Paris; make it special. And Artur does that. He’s funny and engaging and makes you feel like you’re with a friend. He provides a nice selection of drinks - juices, water, champagne and some delicious snacks. It’s un-rushed and he doubles as a really good photographer. There are fancier private boats you can book, but what you get by booking Artur is hard to beat.

    Our trip on the boat was a great experience. We were celebrating a birthday on a girls trip and it was a memorable afternoon. Artur had made it clear from the time of booking that he was not a guide - just the boat operator, so don't expect any history, background, relevance of the monuments, etc. He is fun & funny, though his commentary can be a little off-color at times. But his sentiments come from a good place. He took some great photos. Provided some snacks and beverages, which was a nice gesture. The rain came down midway and we were cold & uncomfortable for about half the tour, but we enjoyed the tour overall. (He did offer to drop us off at a different pier to get out of the rain.) We picked this tour as Artur has great reviews and also to support a small business - overall very satisfied!

    From start to finish, Artur was a pleasure. He is passionate about Paris, the Seine, his business - and managed to keep us laughing the whole way down the river! We started close to the original Statue of Liberty, boated to Notre Dame and returned. Afterwards, my family took a stroll (and a much needed bathroom break) in the beautiful Andre-Citroen park close to the drop off point and walked about 30 mins along the Seinne to the Eiffel Tower, with several gorgeous restaurants to choose from along the way! Highly recommended, especially at this price! The amount of private boats allowed on the Seine is limited and the other options were at least double the price.

    We had an awesome time. Small “fishing type” boat for the 4 of us (2 couples all 65+ age). Artur, owner, navigator, personality, memory maker, was a hoot. We cruised for approx 2 hours. The “mega-boats” with hundreds on board & the programmed commentary we’re watching us & taking pictures of our boat! (We didn’t take any pictures of their boat! We have done the mega-boat seine trip before & boy does that seem boring now.) Artur took 174 pictures during the trip of us in the perfect poses & promptly air dropped them all to all 4 of our phones (yes, 174 pictures! ) we can find the perfect shot & delete the others. It was such an unexpected “add-on” & was a HUGE value added. Viva Artur! Highly recommend.

    Artur and family are the best. We did an 11:30pm ride with our adult kids and loved seeing the city at night including some cool light shows on the Eiffel Tower. Our original schedule was canceled when strong storms came through. Fortunately we all had flexibility to reschedule. Artur’s wife, who we met at the dock, had prepared beverages and some cookies. But the real star is Artur who kept us entertained and took wonderful photos of our family along the way. So far this has been our best Paris adventure.

    Our guide and boat captain, Artur, was very lively, charismatic and fun. He was concerned for our safety and was eager to show our family with young children a fun, relaxing evening on the Seine. Our family was in Paris for one day, and we were very happy we chose this excursion! Artur was able to take literally hundreds of photographs of us—we will treasure these for years to come. Something that was not an issue for our family but worth mentioning is that Artur did not give a tour of the sites along the Seine. With a 7-year-old in tow, we were “all toured out” so we welcomed a relaxing boat ride. If our family has the opportunity to return to Paris one day, we would love to do this excursion again! Thank you, Artur!

    If you are looking for the ultimate private boat ride on the Seine in Paris, this is your tour! Our captain was professional, sweet, kind, open to sharing his history and background, his children are lovely. But beyond that, not only did he take AMAZING photos of us (and airdrop them to us), he had lovely snacks and treats for the adults as well as the children. He stopped at every point of interest, not only to take pictures, but to share the history as well. Our time with the captain flew by and I wished it was longer, I was pretty saddened when it was all over. If you are a family of color and queer, you 100% safe in his hands, at no point did we feel uncomfortable!

    Artur is a special talent and cares tremendously about the experience and value he provides to his clients. The way he meticulously positions his boat and his guests in front of all the Seine River sites is simply incredible and he takes photos for you with his i-phone that he turns into a professional camera and results. He could raise his price substantially, frankly and still exceed all expectations of delivered value

    Artur's hospitality is A+! It's his personal boat, so the group is always small. Artur provides snacks, water, beer, soda, and champagne, all while taking tons of pictures for your party and explaining the sights. This was my favorite activity during my week stay in Paris. Try booking an evening tour to catch the sunset or stare at the glittering Eifel Tower reflecting on the water.
