Beautiful way to see the city. We did the tour at 6:00pm. Which seemed to be popular as It was very very busy however the boat is big to fit a lot of people on. Was perfect timing for sunset and when we arrived back the Eiffel Tower started to sparkle.

It was an entertaining drive from which you can see a few landmarks. Unfortunately, the information that was given during the journey was not always understandable. The audio guide via mobile phone didn't work well for me personally, and the crew kept talking about the time it left. Overall a good thing, I would do it again.

We went an 7:00 and it was perfect. Amazing views. The audio guide is very helpful alla the sights are so brilliant at night. We sat upstairs to have a full view. It was amazing beside the cold. If you are cold you may seat downstairs where it's heated but go early to get seats by the window.

We took this tour at the beginning of our trip and enjoyed cruising up and down the river. It was very relaxing and helped us see all the landmarks we wanted to visit in relation to each other. We sat at the upper level of the boat and just enjoyed the view.

Beautiful way to view the scenery of Paris. You see so many points of interest. The audio guide can be accessed for free without internet. Sitting up the top outside was the best view. Bring earohines for the audio guide if you sit outside. This was one of my favourite activities.

The river cruise was lovely! We sat on top and it was nice to be present and just look at all of the attractions. The audio is not good at all though! Very cringey! Would change that if I could do we ended up not listening to it. You can chose to - it has various languages and if you bring AirPods or any headphones, it’s easy to connect to! But yes, wouldn’t listen if I were you. They play French music which is nice and it was good just to be there. I would do it again

My wife and I’s first time to Paris and we were here for 3 days and jam packed weekend! We ended up booking this one and it fit in our schedule for the last departure on a Saturday night and was a great cruise. Weather and the sights wise(9/10/2022). The boat was great and seating lined the entire upper deck exterior deck while the below decks were indoor and plenty of seating. You get amazing views of the sights up and back along the Seine. I highly recommend whether a first timer or we would do again!

Would recommend warm clothes or a blanket if going after 5pm, as it gets really cold, but it was very beautiful and the descriptions of the places we passed were very historically pleasing to hear for the history lovers and very poetic and entertaining for the romantics. Next time, I’ll just be sure to bring a blanket. (If you don’t you can always stay in the closed part of the boat, the view gets a bit restricted but it’s still enjoyable.

Perfect way to see the main sights of Paris if you are short of time or are just starting your trip to get your bearings. Excellent views (photo opportunities) of the Eiffel Tower and Notre Dame. There was a queue but went down quickly (5 mins) and we boarded the boat at 2.30pm. The boat departs every 30 mins except, the 1pm and 7.30pm slot. The whole experience took 1 hour and it is 5 mins from a metro station. Would highly recommend!

Very good and quite nice intro to explore Paris further (Louvre was accompanied with tickets as we couldn't buy / reserve online on last minute travel). The audio guides were also in Polish so kids could also understand better . One disadvantage that on the upper deck Wifi was disconnecting in certain points of standing or not connecting, once moved closer to middle of the boat it was alright.
