We are delighted to have hosted hundreds of passengers from all over the world since we started our boat tour in 2018. We take a great pride of having the best reviewed cruise in Paris, by making each cruise fun, unique and unforgettable.
Some just wanted to enjoy a unique moment on a boat in Paris, some were looking for a romantic proposal plan (hint: we have a 100% success rate!), others had a special occasion to celebrate…they have all in common to have left amazing reviews!

New York, New York

This was an incredible experience! We booked this for our honeymoon/birthday celebration, and it was such a unique way to see Paris! Axel was so thoughtful, friendly, and knowledgeable! He answered every question I had about what we were seeing! It was so nice to get a private experience on a boat rather than a giant tourist boat. We loved it so much, thank you Axel!! This was definitely one of our favorite parts of our trip :)

Grand Rapids, Michigan

If you want to avoid the large, crowded tour boats in Paris, we highly recommend booking a trip with Axel! He was very knowledgeable of Parisian history and it made the tour super interesting. He even took photos of us in front of the Eiffel Tour, which turned out beautiful! Book when you can!

Granite Bay, California

This was an exceptional experience…why get on a big river boat with hundreds of tourists when you can have a personalized experience…Axel is friendly and knowledgeable and the boat was perfect!

Honolulu, Hawaï

A one of a kind experience, very unique and amazing. Axel really took care of us, and made it an unforgettable experience. We enjoyed the sunset on the Seine, and then got to watch the Eiffel Tower light up. Highlight of our trip!

Los Angeles, California

This is the way to go if you want to tour Paris by water! Axel and his beautiful boat offer an intimate and upscale way to see all of Paris’s landmarks via a picturesque cruise up the Seine. Skip the mass tourist barges with hundreds of people and opt for this tour where Axel provides info on the attractions as you pass, takes photos for you during the trip, and even provides you with Parisian snacks and beverages to enjoy.

Steinbach, Manitoba, Canada

The best experience we had in Paris! Axel was amazing and the tour was a once in a lifetime experience. This beautiful setting made for the most magical engagement we could have had! Axel helped with every aspect, including music and champagne. If you’re looking for a way to experience Paris from a completely different perspective with an expert on the city and culture, look no further!

Macon, Georgia

So glad we did this instead of cramming ourselves onto the boats brimming with people! The wine and snacks were superb, and Axel was an excellent host. Being in front of the Eiffel Tower as it lit up was a perfect touch. Incroyable!

Scottsdale, Arizona

We absolutely LOVED this tour, it was one of the highlights of our trip!! We would definitely recommend it and would suggest booking at the beginning of your Paris stay, as you really get a good overview of where everything is located! Very VERY romantic!!!

Beverly Hills, California

One of the highlights of our Paris trip! Axel was absolutely WONDERFUL! He was professional, extremely easy to communicate with and he went above and beyond to make this experience truly magical for us and for our children. We have been to Paris many times and this experience was by far a favorite! Highly, highly recommend this experience!

Salamanque, Spain

La experiencia me a encantado puedo decir que fue una visión diferente a ver la ciudad caminando, fue muy agradable ver todo desde el sena, en lo personal repetiré cuando vuelva y axel fue muy amable y atento lo recomiendo 100×100 Excelente anfitrión

Miami, Florida

BOOK THIS TRIP!! This was the highlight of our trip in Paris. Axel was a gracious host/captain and made us feel at home from the second we boarded the boat. Worth evert penny and you will not regret this purchase one bit

Los Angeles, California

Axel was an exceptional host. This experience was the highlight of my time in Paris. HIGHLY recommend booking this experience for anyone staying in Paris, even for a day. Do. It.

San Jose, California

The experience of a lifetime!!!! Axel hosted me on his boat for what would turn out to be THE most wonderful night in Paris. I was really looking forward to the boat ride and had high expectations, and still, Axel managed to surpass them all! Axel is personable and easy to be around, he brought the most delicious appetizers, he allowed me to play my choice of music, he shared about Paris as we made our way through the Siene, the list goes one… I would do it again and again and again! This is a must for your Paris trip!

Minneapolis, Minnesota

All I can say is wow! I have been coming to Paris for years but this experience was the greatest. Axel was incredibly friendly and knowledgeable about Paris. His boat was super comfortable and he even brought Champagne, appetizers and desserts. The best part was that I saw things from the river that I had never seen before. Highly recommended for couples celebrating something special or small group of friends. Thanks Axel!

Dieser BootsTrip mit Axel war das absolute Highlight meines Paris Aufenthalts! Wir haben dank Axel Paris von einer ganz speziellen Perspektive entdecken dürfen, wir hatten eine Menge Spass und Axel verwöhnte uns mit feinen Apéro-Häppchen und eisgekühltem Champagner – besser geht’s nicht! Ich empfehle es jedem der Paris ganz individuell und abseits des Mainstreams entdecken möchte! Die Investition lohnt sich wirklich!! Sabina:)

Miami, Florida

This was a really fun experience to share with a couple of friends. I’ve been on the boats that cruise with hundreds of people and it’s just not the same as the intimacy of a small boat. It’s pricy but worth the experience. Axel was great and provided wine and some desserts. We had a blast.

Chicago, Illinois

We had a fantastic time on Axel’s boat. He had a lot of thoughtful touches, and seemed to genuinely enjoy what he does. The views were truly special!

Oxford, Mississippi

Axel was awesome. Super friendly with a bunch of interesting stories about everything on the tour and good general knowledge of just about anything you want to ask him about concerning the city itself. Highly recommend to anyone interested in seeing the city by boat.

Lebanon, New Hampshire

This was a really unique way to see Paris. We went at night and it was lovely to see the city lit up and of course the Eiffel Tower light show. Axel was very friendly and his boat comfortable. Definitely recommend seeing Paris this way.

Washington, District of Columbia

Taking a boat tour of the Seine was a perfect way for us to conclude our visit to Paris. Axel was a great host/driver–he was knowledgeable about the history of Paris and some of the random questions we asked him. The cruise was incredible–much better than going on one of the large boat tours. We went at night and were able to see the light show at the Eiffel Tower. We highly recommend this boat tour!

Menlo Park, Californie

This boat tour was awesome! We were the envy of every single massive, crowded boat tour on the water. There was just two of us and our awesome driver — we enjoyed snacks, champagne, and played our own music through the boat speakers. Was a picturesque and incredible experience. Parisians are cool.

New York, New York

Have been to Paris a few times and had never been on the Seine. Awesome way of seeing the city and the only way to do it is on a tour like this, though it didn’t seem like there were any others just like this! Definite highlight of our trip, highly recommend it. Beats a public boat tour 10/10.

Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

Book this immediately! It was absolutely the best part of our trip. Nothing short of magical! Axel was lovely and the food and drinks he provided were delicious. I can’t say enough great things. We were so sad when it was over

Boise, Idaho

This was by far, the best part of our stay in Paris. Thank you, Axel! We are so thrilled to have spent a couple hours touring your city with you. An outstanding point of view of Paris with a captain who’s really fun to hang with.

Arlington, Virginia

Go on Axel’s boat ride! He’s a great guy and he does a wonderful job pointing out the sites, and does whatever he can to make sure you are comfortable.

Murfreesboro, Tennessee

I booked this experience for our last night in Paris as a special way to propose to my girlfriend (now fiancé!) Edouard was our captain for the 8:00 P.M. boat ride and it was an experience that we will remember for the rest of our lives. Even before booking, they promptly answered all questions and communicated frequently with me. Very friendly and knowledgeable. Views from the water were just breathtaking. Just an amazingly special experience. Cannot recommend enough! Thanks guys.

Oviedo, Florida

If you are visiting Paris, you MUST book a private boat tour with Axel. It was such a unique experience to see all the sights via boat, with snacks and a bottle of Rosé. Axel was a great host and very knowledgeable about the history of the city and interesting facts that only a born and raised Parisian would know. My wife and I loved every second of this tour, thank you Axel!

Chicago, Illinois

Once in a lifetime private boat tour down the Seine. No crowds. We only saw one other private boat and saw things you can never see on land. You pass by the very crowded other boats. The boat was in excellent condition and the captain was excellent. Highly highly recommend!

South Lake Tahoe, Californie

What a wonderful trip up Le Seine! A truly unique experience to be in a private boat, cruising up the river. Axel was on holiday during our stay in Paris, but was wonderful with communication. Edouard was our captain and he did a fantastic job piloting the boat and making us feel comfortable. We brought a bunch of snacks on board and Edouard also provided some tasty desserts. This is an amazing, truly one-of-a-kind experience!

Los Angeles, California

We had a wonderful time on Axl’s boat. It was truly a unique and special experience for our family. From initial contact to the experience itself, everything was top notcha

We had a wonderful experience cruising with Axel. He exceeded our expectations and created a truly magical night for my family. Thank you, Axel.

Paris, France

Très agréable expérience qui permet de découvrir Paris autrement. Nous avons été très bien accueillies et accompagnées avec en surprise des macarons et une bouteille de vin! Je recommande vivement ce tour. Merci à Axel pour cette expérience.

Los Angeles, California

STOP LOOKING AND BOOK THIS IMMEDIATELY!!! This is a once and a lifetime experience! I was looking at a couple of different options to surprise my boyfriend and good friend for our first night in Paris. I did so much research on the different boats, dinner cruises, and more. In the end I ended up booking Axels experience and man was it the best decision I’ve ever made! Not only did I surprise my boyfriend and friend I was blown away myself! We had the best time! Axel was so nice and accommodating in so many ways. He had so much information about each beautiful sight and monument. He took us past everything you would dream of seeing in Paris and to top off the tour you get to see the Eiffel tower sparkle (due to Axels perfect timing) IT WAS PURE MAGIC! We where the only speed boat on the water we watched the dinner cruises and tour boats pass us full of people. While we lounged about drinking, eating, listening to great tunes, and enjoying Paris! Do yourself a favor and just book it you won’t regret it.

Bogota, Colombia

MAGNIFIQUE!!!!! awesome experience, highly recommended for anyone looking for a private and outstanding experience in paris. is not compared to anything in paris, after a week in paris the time on axel boat was the best one.

Fostoria, Ohio

Wow! We were so appreciative of our experience on the river with Axel. We took the night cruise and had a perfect view of the sunset. The wine and snacks were perfect. We felt that we were able to see an extremely unique side of Paris. This beats any other boat tour on the river BY FAR! Truly a forever memory!

San Diego, California

This was one of the most amazing and breathtaking experiences I have ever had. Axel was so kind and welcoming. I’m so happy I got to do this. Made my whole trip

Richmond, Virginia

HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS! Axel was an amazing host with great knowledge of all the landmarks you will see along the tour of the Seine. If you are looking for a unique and very special experience in Paris, this is it. I cannot think of a better way to drink a bottle of rosé and snack on macaroons (which were provided by the host). Merci beaucoup, Axel!!!


Wonderful experience! We already know Paris quite well but nothing matches being on a boat on the river with some wine and food while watching the beautiful sights go by. Axel is calm and knowledgeable and gave us a lot of new insight without being intrusive. The point where you board the boat seems a bit out of the way, but don’t be put off, it’s amazing to see what lies along the river just outside the periphery of Paris. The high speed section of the river is a fun thrill too! Highly recommended

West Hollywood, California

Book this right now! Axel was incredible and made this experience so special. I go to Paris about three times a year and haven’t had an experience like this before. Hands down the best thing I’ve done in my travels. You get to experience the best of Paris from the best seat with the best host. It is a little bit outside the city but worth the trip and gives you a chance to experience more than you could by foot. Really, I can’t say thank you enough to Axel for his incredible hospitality and wonderful tour. Also, the snacks he provided were YUMMMMMY!

Los Angeles, California

Axel provided a thorough, fun, and delicious boat tour through Paris! He was very knowledgeable about the city, as he grew up there, and was able to show us sites not you’re not able to see by foot. He even timed it so that we were right in front of the Eiffel Tower when it began to glitter at dusk! I would 100% recommend this tour to even the most experienced Parisian local!

Ottawa, Canada

Couldn’t have asked for a better day!…Axel was super responsive and met us exactly where he said and when….the whole day was amazing, he really catered the tour to our style and intests…Defenitely a once in a lifetime!

Lake Forest, California

Axel made our bucket list dreams come true! We arrived on la Fête nationale (Bastille Day as we know in the U.S.) and managed to get our boat front row seats in front of the Eiffel Tower during the fireworks show! This is no joke! Axel’s customer service was like the “Nordstrom” store kind you get in the U.S.. He had wonderful appetizers and great wine ready to share. Leading up the experience he answered all of our questions within a 24-hour period. When the weather changed he had blankets ready for us. He was both knowledgeable, thoughtful, and friendly. I highly recommend this experience to anyone looking for an intimate, but informative outing! Thank you Axel again!

Jackson, Wyoming

Axel’s boat trip is a MUST and I do not say this lightly… A MUST DO activity when you are in Paris. Many Parisians will not ever experience the type of special boat trip my friends and I experienced. Will do this again soon.

Pasadena, California

This was an amazing experience. The marina is a little outside on Paris but completely worth it. Seeing the fireworks that close on the river over the Eiffel Tower was a breathtaking experience. Axel was a wonderful host and I am so excited we went on this experience.

Washington, District of Columbia

This is incredible. The ride is relaxing and scenic. The host is chill and benevolent. The Seine in general is a great time. Makes for a memorable night in (and around) the city.

Bonn, Germany

It was a great experience and Axel is just perfect. He knows Background aboutParis and you can feel that he likes what he does. The service was perfect as well as the communication beforehand. Thanks to Axel to make the birthday a unique experience

New Tripoli, Pennsylvania

Axel provided a great experience for my girlfriend and I (we were the only 2 people on the boat for the time period we booked). We did a 9:30 AM boat ride so he provided coffee, tea, and croissants. Additionally, he was very informative and outgoing and was happy to take many great pictures for us. This was truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

Portland, Oregon

We loved this experience! Axel was knowledgeable & super fun! This boat tour was an amazing way to see Paris and all its beautiful history. Was, by far, our favorite part of our trip.

Portland, Oregon

Axel was amazing! Great communication and punctual. We arranged a private tour and it did not disappoint. He arrived with some wine and snacks. The boat is really nice and the weather was perfect! Seeing Paris from the river is an experience that should not be missed!

Portland, Oregon

We are soooo glad we did this!! Seeing Paris from the water was beautiful and having the boat to ourselves was pretty perfect.

Columbus, Indiana

If you’re looking for a truly unique and personal Seine River cruise, book with Axel. My friend and I were fortunate enough to have the boat to ourselves on a sunset trip and it was one of the highlights of our stay in Paris. Our co-captains made sure that we saw all the important sites and took pictures for us. The departure point for the cruise is a little out of the way, due to rules on the river, but completely worth the trip. I’ve already recommended the trip to other travelers, and would book this again if I am back in Paris.

Orangevale, California

This boat experience is completely worth every penny and I was able to really enjoy all the beautiful structures in Paris. The host was so nice and made my family and I feel really welcomed.

Santa Rosa, California

Axel was an awesome host! He made our group feel very special and we all had a lot of fun during this experience. His boat is beautiful and it felt like a very intimate experience. We got to see many sights from a different view on the tour, such as the Eiffel tour and the Île aux Cygnes, and we learned some history behind the various bridges and beautiful places Paris has. I highly recommend you try this out!

Santa Rosa, California

Axel is the man! The boat tour was extraordinary. We went at 1pm and enjoyed beautiful weather. Worth every penny! It was a great way to see Paris. Book it!

Dallas, Texas

This is by far the best day we had over the 15 days we spent all over Europe! Do yourself a favor and book this! It is not only a wonderful way to see the city, but also an amazing date night. We had an absolutely amazing evening!

Hamden, Connecticut

A fantastic experience and the highlight of the trip. Axel was a great host and the boat trip was an exceptional way to experience Paris

Great Falls, Virginia

Alex was a great host and guide. He was extremely friendly, knowledgable, and genuinely cared about our experience. We got to know him fairly well in a short time. He has lived and studied in the US and conversed extremely well in english. The boat was very nice and perfect for or excursion. I highly recommend Alex and his experience to anyone. We were in Europe for a 10 day 25th anniversary trip, and our last morning (before flying out that afternoon), couldn’t have been spend any better. Beautiful morning ride, seeing all the views/attractions from a unique perspective. 5 stars all the way around.

Great Falls, Virginia

We could not have asked for a better conclusion to our 25th Anniversary celebration in Europe! Axel proposed an early start to our Sunday Seine River cruise and it was just perfect. A cool morning with few boats sharing the river-unheard of all week with the heat wave. He was so eager to share his knowledge of Paris and the views from the water provided lovely photos to remember our trip coupled by historical recollections of the sites we passed. Don’t miss the opportunity to enjoy this experience! Highly recommended.

Vienne, Virginia

This was a great private trip down the Seine, giving a unique perspective of Paris. The boat was great. And Axel was very friendly and knowledgeable. Highly recommended.

Sterling, Illinois

I went on the boat ride with my granddaughter and we absolutely had a delightful time! I would highly recommend it! Just be sure when you are going to look up the location from where you are staying because it can be farther than it looks. Overall, it was very good and the driver was very friendly and knowledgeable.

Oakland, California

Very worthwhile experience. Spent a wonderful evening on the Seine river slowly and comfortably motor boating through with my husband and another lovely couple we met on his boat. After our 3rd night in Paris it was lovely to see the sites from a different perspective. And of course you can get the money shot with the Eiffel Tower. Axel was very personable and accommodating. Speaks excellent English . Provided wine and appetizers . Would highly recommend this unique and luxurious experience.

Brownsboro, Alabama

Axel was wonderful. We were in traffic and late getting to the pier- he waited for us and welcomed us nonetheless. It was a lovely evening on the Seine- he had wine and appetizers for us. We took the evening cruise and had a glorious sunset. We wish we could have brought him to London with us for a tour on the Thames.

Fairfield, Connecticut

This was truly a unique experience. Although it is a tour, we did not feel like tourists; the tourists were on the big barges with dozens or hundreds of other people. It is almost impossible to have a private boat on the Seine in Paris; I cannot imagine being able to this any other way. Axel was friendly and enthusiastic. His boat seems like it is brand new. It really was the perfect way to spend a sunny morning in Paris. (I am recommending to a couple friends who live in Paris.). My favorite picture from our vacation was of my 12 year old piloting the speedboat with the Eiffel Tower in the background.

Seattle, Washington

This was by far the next experience we had in Paris. Having been there before it was a unique way to discover the visit. Axel and Eduard were fantastic, very hospitable and fun. Highly recommend this activity for anyone ( including kids) visiting Paris.

Washington, District of Columbia

My family of 6 had a wonderful time. It was a unique and personal experience with great views of the landmarks in Paris. We would recommend this excursion to anyone, even families with kids (our 4 year old had a blast).

Columbus, Ohio

Amazing perspective of Paris from the river! We enjoyed Axel’s boat and his company as we cruised the Seine River. I would recommend this to anyone visiting Paris, and I plan to do this again the next time I’m in Paris. The snacks and wine Axel provided were also wonderful. Overall a fun and memorable experience.

Raleigh, North Carolina

Axel was great, super friendly and welcoming. Navigating to the meetup site was easy. We took the metro to the 175 bus. Boat was nice. Very comfortable for 4 people plus captain, lots of extra space both in the front and back. Axel answered any question we asked. Good views. Worth the money, way better option than the large boat tours.

Boston, Massachusetts

Amazing experience. Axel showed up with macaroons and a bottle or rosé, and from there he drove me in his boat along the Seine. A truly unique experience

Elysian, Minnesota

What an amazing experience! Axel is top notch and extremely friendly, accommodating and knowledgeable. We were able to go at our own pace in a private boat down the river. Snapping shots of a lot of major tourist spots in Paris. There are several large tour boats on the river but this was worth every penny to have a more intimate setting. Where you board the boat is easy to find and a great neighborhood. We even took the tram system to get there from the inner city and only cost us around $5 per person (one way). Would highly recommend this experience!

Miami Beach, Florida

This was a great experience for our family! The kids had a blast and to get this perspective of Paris was very special. I definitely recommend, especially if you have children.

Dublin, Ireland

Amazing experience! Axel is truly caring and making sure you got that once in a lifetime experience! All personal requests were happily approved too! This is THE boat experience to do if you’re in Paris

Kiama, Australia

The second we left the Uber Axel was there to greet us with a warm welcoming friendly vibe. It was our last night in Paris and it was a wonderful way to conclude our holiday. Axel 11/ 10 for the service you provided. Do not hesitate booking this experience.

Seattle, Washington

What an amazingly unique experience to enjoy in Paris! We were able to cruise along the Seine on a beautifully sunny day cruising by the Eiffel Tower and Notre Dame. Thanks Axel so much for the opportunity for us to experience this in Paris!

Orinda, California

The boat ride with Axel was one of the highlights of our trip to Paris. He gave us a great overview of the sights as we passed by, and was extremely accommodating of our time constraints and needs. He also was one of the most helpful sources of information about Paris (both before and during our trip). We did this our 1st full day in Paris, and I would highly recommend. We saw all of those large Seine river cruises with 500+ people on them, and were so glad we could go at our own pace with our own expert guide. He adjusted his explanations so our entire family of 4 (2 teenagers) really enjoyed it.

Coppell, Texas

We had a wonderful evening with a couple from nyc! Axel was a laid back, informative and totally interesting guy. I have done a number of Airbnb experiences and this was the best by far. I have never given a review in my life but I felt compelled.

New York, New York

The hands-down BEST way to see Paris! Axel was an amazing host, and we had an awesome and intimate tour of the city from his private speedboat. HIGHLY recommend this experience, Axel provided wine and some light food, and had great knowledge of the city and landmarks, and perfectly timed our ride to end with the Eiffel Tower light show. 10 out of 10!

Orlando, Florida

The boat tour with Axel was great! He was super friendly and provided a great experience. Very knowledgeable about the history of a lot of the landmarks and even current events. Great guy to talk to. Would recommend this experience to anyone, especially if you’re in Paris for the first time.

Houston, Texas

We had an amazing time on the boat tour. Axel thought of everything, he had snacks, wine and blankets for us (it got cold on the water). He told us so much about Parisian history and was so professional. We recommend this for anybody who wants to see Paris from a unique vantage point without all the crowds.

Houston, Texas

Axel was an amazing tour guide! My wife and I really enjoyed our private boat tour along the Seine last week during our vacation in Paris. It was a unique vantage point to enjoy views of the riverbank, especially the Eiffel tower at dusk. Axel took care of everything from blankets, pillows, wine and some nice snacks, and we got to lay back and enjoy the sights. It was especially nice to have the boat to ourselves, instead of a large, crowded tour boat with hundreds of people aboard (we saw a few of those on the river too). I’d say this tour was definitely a great value, given the overall experience and the amenities included.

New York, USA

Yesterday we went on the private boat tour with Axel. Although the weather wasn’t promising he made our special occasion everything we could have dreamed for and more. He made my proposal amazing. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!!

Tampa, Florida

My boyfriend and I had such a wonderful experience with axel! It was hands down the highlight of our trip in Paris. We were so happy to be able to see the city through axel’s boating adventure, and enjoyed learning some interesting things about the city and history during the process. I would recommend this to anyone who loves boating, water, and sightseeing. Next time we’re in Paris we will be coming back to do this!

New York, New York

Our favorite part of our Paris trip. Axel is a wonderful guide- funny and kind and knowledgeable. We lived hanging out with him.

London, UK

We had a tour on the Seine with Axel and it was amazing. He was friendly, entertaining, knew lots about Paris and showed us a great time. The boat is very comfortable and a brilliant way to see the city from a different perspective. Highly recommended!

Charlotte, North Carolina

This experience was one of our favorites on our trip to Paris. It was the most exciting and unique way that we were able to see the city. Axel is as knowledgeable as he is friendly and he is an excellent host and guide for the tour. If you are visiting the city and really want to see it from a special perspective – this is a must!

Clovis, New Mexico

Much more personal and romantic river tour than you will ever get on the bigger boats. Very easy to work with, and great experience we won’t forget.

Newport Beach, California

This was an amazing experience! My husband and I loved it! Axel was professional and very nice! If you go to Paris, this is a must!

New York, New York

Wonderful experience! Axel is very friendly and knowledgeable. The boat is clean and new. This was perfect for a small group. Great way to see the city!

Charlotte, North Carolina

Amazing way to see Paris from the Seine River in Axel’s boat. He had everything planned perfectly and even had us in front of the Eiffel Tower when it started sparkling (to the second)! He added in plenty of extra points of knowledge on the scenery as we passed by. Such a lovely evening.

Mansfield, Massachusetts

We were on a private boat in the Seine. This is the most luxurious experience of my life. Axel gave us wine and snacks and made sure we drove by the Eiffel Tower on the hour when it sparkles.

Moscow, Russia

This is really a great opportunity to see Paris privately : great views and very comfortable! We had great time! Only keep in mind traffic in Paris so that you will arrive in time to start your trip! We were late but Axel was very calm :) ( Thank you!)

Melbourne, Australia

We had a fantastic night cruise with Axel and Carol. Axel is a skilled and confident skipper who conveyed his passion for Paris and the Seine at every turn, making certain we saw and heard the best of everything, we couldn’t recommend an experience more highly.

Seattle, Washington

We were visiting Paris to celebrate my birthday and we decided to book a boat ride with Axel for the morning of my birthday. This was a highlight of the day. Axel is a super friendly, nice guy to spend time with. We met at 9:30 and spent the next 2 hours cruising down the Seine and taking in the iconic Parisan monuments/sights by boat. It was great to be in a small, private boat — as compared to the oversized tourist vessels. Axel had croissants and tea/coffee for us and he invited us to DJ our own music as we sailed. We enjoyed hearing about the history and a local perspective on Paris. It helps that Axel speaks perfect English and is well travelled himself. On top of all this, Axel took some fantastic photos of us as we passed by the Eiffel Tower. What more could we ask for? Highly recommend, and hope to bring the rest of our family on this adventure next time we visit.

Torrance, California

The evening tour was an amazing way to see Paris and all of its amazing sights! The drinks and snack was really incredible and thoughtful. And the timing was perfect.

Londres, UK

This was the absolute highlight of a marvellous four-day getaway to Paris. I’ve been fortunate to travel to this lovely city half a dozen times over the years, but had never seen Paris from the water. I didn’t know what I was missing! Axel’s experience is a unique and very special way to travel through the heart of Paris, soooo much better than those naff tourist barges that chug back and forth along a limited footprint. I was running late because of a mix-up with my taxi (do take an Uber to the pick-up point, as Axel suggests in his instructions!) and called in a bit of a panic. Fortunately he was calm and gracious – and so were the other two very nice guests – and waited for me to arrive. I finally arrived, introductions were made, wine was poured, and off we went into the sunset for a magical evening. Axel is a splendid host with a perfect mix of conversation, local knowledge, and stepping back so you can enjoy the scenery and the ambience of gliding through Paris. We also met Edouard who will be working with Axel to host this trip, and he was also a calm, gracious and competent host. Absolutely worth every penny for an experience to remember forever. Don’t miss this.

Hartford, Connecticut

Unique and Spectacular. It was quick to see how special this booking was, not just because it is a private tour (although that was awesome), but we observed quickly that is very uncommon. We stepped onboard a gem. Axel’s niche for private tours on the Siene is unparalleled to other boat cruises. Axel is very knowledgeable about his beloved city. His boat was clean and new. His great charisma and the comfortable atmosphere he made for us with the wine and snacks will be something my wife and I will never forget. Well done Axel. Well done.

Jaspreet & Mohit

It was a beautiful experience watching Paris from the Seine. It was made even better with the company we shared. With out-of-the-world sunset views, this was one of the best experiences in Paris. Axel is a great host and a lot of fun. Once again thanks a lot Axel for a lovely time!

Augusta, Georgia

Axel was the best guide we could have hoped for- he had wonderful snacks, made us feel like we were kings and queens for the day- he even let my six year old help him drive the boat. He can’t stop talking about it! We love axel

Baltimore, Maryland

I was traveling alone in Paris and decided to book Axel’s boat trip as a way to meet other people and try a new experience. It was the perfect thing to do on a beautiful and sunny day. Axel is a warm and easygoing guy who made the experience incredibly memorable with wine and cheese and good conversation. I was on the tour with a family who were also fun so it was a great experience all around.

Axel is a fantastic host and we highly recommend him and the boat tour. It really is the best way to see the sights from the Seine River. Worth every penny! We would do it again without hesitation. Absolutely wonderful!

Bala Cynwyd, Pennsylvania

Axel is so awesome! We had an amazing experience. Definitely one of the best memories ever! The boat ride was incredible. He prepared cheese, wine, bread, and sodas. The views are spectacular and he is such a nice, charming guy. Our group had the so much fun. This was truly an evening we will never forget! Thank you so much Axel.

Sunnyvale, California

Axel is awesome and his tour was one of the highlights of our trip. I am a Paris native and was visiting back with my girlfriend, Axel helped me hatch the perfect proposal plan, it went better than expected!


I have gone on cruises before now but there was something about this one that made it so special. Axel had me choose some lovely tunes on his phone and he played it from a speaker while we cruised… oh my goodness, I felt like a celebrity. He know Paris and talks about her from a deep passion. The weather was lovely and Paris welcomed me into her bosom with breathtaking views. I HIGHLY recommend this cruise with Axel 100%. This was the highlight of my trip to Paris.

Huston, Texas

This is the real deal! A great time on a private boat, way better than the big crowded boats you’ll laugh as you pass. A must do!

Santa Barbara, California

This experience really made our trip to Paris. It is really amazing to see the city from the Seine. Truly it was relaxing, fun, informative and we got amazing pictures. Axel was also a great captain. He is so nice and we loved talking with him about the city, as he knows it very well. This was so so worth it, it’s hard to even put it into a review how much we loved this boat ride.

Kansas City, Missouri

Axel was an amazing host! From the cheeses and wine he provided, to his knowledge of Paris, our entire trip was enjoyable. He timed the sunset views of the Eiffel Tower and the first views of the lights sparkling perfectly. We would HIGHLY recommend this to anyone looking for a memorable and private experience.

Fox River Grove, Illinois

Outside of attending the Ryder Cup, this experience with Axel was the highlight of our trip to Paris. His knowledge of the city was amazing, and the private tour floating down the Seine is something we’ll never forget… especially passing all of the other crowded tour boats and thinking how disconnected their experience is compared to this private experience. The boat was incredibly clean and Axel was a very gracious host and safe captain. This is an experience I highly recommend to anyone looking to see Paris removed from the hustle and bustle of the ‘touristy way’. A 10 out of 10 !

Riviera Beach, Florida

This was such an amazing experience. There area many boat trips in Paris, but we felt that ours was the most unique. Axel organized the trip thoughtfully and professionally. Very highly recommend. Thank you, Axel!

Washington, District of Columbia

Wonderful trip with Axel! We were so impressed and loved every moment of of the trip down the Seine. Unfortunately, we ended up being 15 min late because of traffic so make sure you account for that. We saw the Eiffel Tower sparkle twice and both times Axel positioned us in the best spot for pics. He knew so much about every bridge and building we passed. This was the best way to start our stay in Paris.

Très bonne première expérience de location avec Axel. Le bateau est en parfait état, bien équipé et préparé pour la location. Très bon accueil au départ et au retour d’Axel. Topo de la traversée de Paris (qui la première fois est un peu impressionnante avec le flux de bateau mouches …) parfait. Le bassin de vitesse avec la Defense en toile de fonds est assez amusant aussi. Je compte relouer à la saison prochaine !
