Lovely sights all along the cruise. you can sit inside or outside and there are balconies along the side of the boat where you can step out onto (secure guard rail) and... More

The cruise is what you would expect. Not high end or special, not poor. In the middle. The only thing that was annoying was that the hand held speakers with the language selection were very heavy and the metal cords were very noisy as they went in and out of their housing. With 100s if passengers pulling them in and... More

A must do for a first time visit. Great ship, good safety info and loved the commentary. Really romantic experience at night fall, when you get back the Tour Eiffel is all lighten up

Highlight of trip! We selected the 6pm dinner cruise (9 too late for us and it was dark enough to see city lights halfway back) and the food was so much better than anticipated on a boat. The boat was beautiful - all glass. Definitely the most attractive of the boats available. Waiters were very entertaining and spoke English well.... More

We knew this was a very "touristy" thing to do...but felt somewhat obligatory. We enjoyed viewing the sites and bridges while motoring down the river, but, the boat was jammed with people and the viewing glass was dirty making the view difficult to see.

All these companies are the same, but the hour long cruise is just great. We do it the first evening when we arrive ( after napping) you want to get out and see, but are still tired and groggy from jet lag. Sit back and enjoy, inside or out.

We decided to have a lunch cruise (service privilege) on our wedding anniversary and it was a truly amazing experience. The meal was delicious with plenty of good wine, service attentive, live music wonderful, the views breathtaking... Romantic, magical experience. Highly recommended for all special occasions! Really worth the price.

This canal tour was an add-on from the Big Red Bus city tour. It was worth the time (about an hour on the water). Might be more fun after dark. It was pretty crowded with groups of students.

Despite our reservations over the cost, this was an absolutely first class evening dinner cruise. Was SWMBOs birthday, and wanted it to be special, and to be honest, cruising along the river Seine at night time with damn good food, wine, panoramic views and live entertainment, it doesn't get any better. SWMBO was happy, and I got to live another... More

We were balancing up the choice between a 1 hour cruise @ €14 then lunch in a restaurant vs a 2 hour cruise with lunch @ €57. Laziness won over the walk to find a restaurant and we are very glad it did. Lunch was simply great, standouts were: - the poached egg, ceps and crayfish starter being a real... More
