Boat tour of Seine at good price. Its better to do it at night like we did. The tour departure and thereafter the cruise is timed that it arrives next to Eiffel, as the tower starts twinkling / shimmering. Great way to get hang of layout of central Paris

Good organization for ticketing and boarding. Excellent guide. We learned history from him. The boat ride lasts a fulfilling amount of time. The boat travels slowly through the river under the bridges, by castles, cathedrals, and historical neighborhoods.

I booked a 1 hour river cruise for the last evening of our trip. This was due to commence at 9pm. Once we had boarded the boat and had left the dock we were informed that the cruise would actually be 1hour 30mins. This meant that we would now miss our anniversary dinner reservation that we had booked months prior to our trip. Needless to say this completely ruined out last evening and we ended up eating at Mcdonalds as not much else is open for a sit down dinner at 10.30pm in central Paris. I tried to speak to staff about this but was either ignored or the issue was shrugged off. Aside from this, the cruise commentary wasn't great. The guide kept drifting off with his sentences and seemed very distracted. At one point the boat pretty much came to a standstill for 15 mins and we weren't informed what the delay was for and no effort was made to fill in the lack of movement with some interesting facts about Paris and our surroundings, it was just silent... If you care about your time, finding out more about Paris and a good river cruise... I would recommend using another operator.

We went on this cruise in order to learn a bit more about Paris sights. Firstly , we couldn’t do more than a quarter of the original cruise due to the Seine levels but we were still charged the same. Secondly, our guide was not able to pronounce words correctly in English and as a result we couldn’t understand more than 10% of her commentary, what an absolute waste of time. I suppose the experience really depends on the guide but our experience unfortunately wasn’t any good.

Highly recommend the cruise that starts while sun is still up and then finishes after dusk. Absolutely gorgeous especially on the sunny day when the sunlight makes architecture sparkle.
