Traveling right through the heart of Paris, Tauck's Seine River cruises provide an immersive experience as you meander through painted landscapes, seaside villages and historic towns.
Welcome to the Seine River
Its unique arrondissements, brimming with character, like the Marais – home to trendy cafés, galleries and boutiques… the River Seine, winding its way through the city… the Eiffel Tower, one of the world’s most recognizable icons… the Cathedral of Notre-Dame, needing no introduction… the incomparable Louvre, perhaps the most famous museum on Earth… Rue Montorgueil, ined with produce stands, boulangeries, cheese shops, wine stores, and fishmongers… Les Invalides, the palatial complex housing the monumental tomb of Napoleon… Place de la Bastille, site of the infamous fortress where the French Revolution began… Père Lachaise, the famous cemetery and final resting place of Jim Morrison, Oscar Wilde, and Edith Piaf. And that’s just the beginning…
In springtime, the famous villa and gardens in the village of Giverny is awash in pink and green, adorned in wisteria, azalea and water lilies, and basked in dappled sunlight reminiscent of the works of its 43-year resident, painter Claude Monet. Our exclusive early-opening visit to the pioneer Impressionist’s retreat shows you the artist’s home as he lived it and painted it. Monet’s pink stucco house gives the impression that his family of 10 still lives there; its rooms showcase private furnishings, and his collection of Japanese prints adorn walls throughout. Walk along pathways bordered with nasturtiums, hollyhocks, hybrid lilies or snapdragons, and go through the tunnel that leads to the Water Garden and the Japanese Bridge.
In the Normandy village of Tilly sits a grand manor house that's been dubbed the "Versailles of Normandy," Château de Bizy. Not only was it inspired by the "Sun King" Louis IV's spectacular Château de Versailles, but Louis XV actually called it home for a time. Today, it's the opulent setting for a Tauck Exclusive reception and dinner accompanied by live music and brimming in Baroque grandeur.
We take mirrors pretty much for granted today, but back in King Louis XIV’s time, they were very expensive, which may be why he had the Hall of Mirrors (with 357 individual mirrors) built in his Château de Versailles. Frankly, he was a bit of a show-off. Although no one really knows for sure, historians estimate that it may have cost the “Sun King” (and therefore the people of France) more than $2 billion (in today’s US dollars) to build his over-the-top palace in the town of Versailles outside Paris. Prepare to be dazzled when your guide takes you inside the palatial estate – without the usual crowds – on Tauck’s early-opening visit to Versailles, available on select departures of "A Week In... Paris & Provence."

For 90+ years, the Tauck family has had a passion for sailing — aboard small ships and yachts at sea, riverboats along great inland waterways, and at home on the rivers and lakes of Connecticut and New York. When we began blending our land experience with our strong passion for cruising in our first European river cruise back in 1992, we knew that no "ordinary" river cruise experience would do for our guests. We wanted them to travel Europe's rivers in the same beyond-the-ordinary Tauck style they experienced on our land trips. With that in mind, we searched to find a company to partner with that would share our values and our commitment to "do the right thing" by our guests... and found it in another family-owned company, Scylla. Together, we crafted a river cruise experience that was ahead of its time and inspired by the destinations we explore.
