Great host giving the history of Paris and the buildings we passed on the route. I did not find the leaving point that easy to find though, but trust the map provided in the email confirmation. The boat was busy, but it was a very sunny Saturday afternoon, the boats ealier in the day looked quieter. Even though it was busy, we still had good visibility of everything. I would recommend this tour.

We enjoyed our boat cruise on the Seine very much. We got to see many of the famous Paris sites in a short period of time. The audio guide was helpful in pointing out the landmarks and offering some stories to go with the attractions. It was a nice touch to have a bar and snacks available.

Try to time this just before sunset it's a beautiful trip. I went on this tour with my two parents (age 50) and they loved it! It gives you a lot of history tidbits which add depth to your Paris experience. It's a very relaxing ride, especially on a sunny day. Excellent value for your trip. When lining up it's worth lining up early to get a good view at the front of the top deck *for the best views, don't sit in the chairs, sit on the boxes at the front or stand at the front*

Really liked the boat trip however seating is not great and we could hardly understand the explanations given by our guide as the mainly spoke french. We purchased the ticket that included a soft drink and snack and we got a delicious crepe. Loved the view and we were lucky with the weather. Overall we enjoyed the boat trip a lot and do recommend it as good intro to Paris.

Booked 2 tickets for the 5PM/17:00 slot on a Sunday (early November). I had purchased the tickets the day before with no issues. We arrived about ~20min before the ride and saw only a few people lined up already. They checked our tickets and pass sanitaire, and it was pretty seamless. The cruise took off right on time. There was enough space on the boat. Definitely recommend bundling up since it was an evening ride in early November especially if you sit at the top. Brilliant experience, very...

Money well spent! Our tour guide was really good and bilingual (French and English). We took the 8:20pm ride and it was perfect as we also saw the beautiful sunset. Only too bad that the Notre Dame was still under construction but the rest was wonderful! Paris is really gorgeous whether daytime, sunset or at night! Highly recommend this Seine River Cruise!

The guide very friendly. Keep in mind that the explanation is in French and English, not in Spanish. But if you know a bit of one of the two languages, it's easy to understand. The boat is very nice, you can be outside or on top and you can move during the trip. I recommend it to those people who want to see Paris in a short time since with one hour you can see from the Eiffel Tower to Notre-Dame etc etc. amazing.

Easy to find the boarding point (right in front of Eiffel Tower). Smaller boat (no feeling of cattle truck!) and with trips every half hour. Just ordered the tickets and got on board when we wanted. (8.25pm meant we had sunset and Tower lit up on return). Good commentary in English, French, Spanish. (no need for headphones)

On time departure. Pretty though quite cold from top deck. Knowledgable guide though he had to talk fast to explain everything in French first then English. Our cruise came with a drink and snack but the line to get the items were long and moved slowly since there was only one server on board. The cruise time (4:30 pm) allowed us to see the beautifully lit Eiffel against the sunset on the way back - which was great. Deducting one star as this tour operator charges for use of their restroom.

Worth the money. Very relaxing to do on a night after partying, or an evening to see all of the lights. We did in the morning and were glad that we could just sit and relax after a long night. Beautiful views. River was high so we didn't see everything, but still worth it. Champagne on the boat was a fun "when in Paris" picture.
