Seine Escorted River Cruises

Discover mesmerising urban landscapes and the breathtaking scenery which inspired some of the world's greatest artists on an elegant Seine river cruise. Historic ports of call, gastronomic delights and the twinkling lights of Paris are just a few of the highlights on our Seine river cruises. The famous waterway navigates along the Seine Valley, winding through a diverse landscape of epic forests, endless orchards and lush marshlands - offering panoramic views of France's heartland.

The twisting and looping route of the valley allows our river cruises to visit iconic cities as well as lesser known regions of Normandy. This means that during one voyage guests can experience the sophistication and romance of Paris, the rustic charm of Melun and see the garden that played muse to many of Claude Monet's masterpieces. 

The banks of the river are an attraction in themselves as they transform from rural wilderness into pretty townscapes, where Gothic architecture and half-timbered houses adorn the streets along with vintage boutiques, glamorous cafés and elegant gardens. There are also many iconic landmarks and world-famous monuments such as the Notre Dame Cathedral which can be enjoyed from the unique vantage point of a Seine river cruise.
