We went on the "Pancake-Tour" taking us through different locks on the Canal St Martin, and an underground canal to the yacht harbour Arsenal. Then onto the Seine to watch the highlights of Paris from the boat. We liked the small size of the boat, not too many people on board compared to the other companies like Bateaux Mouches... The service was good and the young guide was extremely knowledgeable and taught us many details about the monuments along the Seine and their history. The pancakes were tasty, and also here the service was very pleasant. We can recommend this trip with Canauxrama :)

Just copied the correspondance with the company: "Good afternoon, We would like to inform you that, due to the lack of participants, the crepe tea times cruise on Wednesday 18th March is cancelled. We can offer you to reschedule your booking the same day on the Old Paris cruise at 2 :30pm (crepes will be exceptionally available on this cruise) or to another date of your choice. It is also possible to have a ticket valid a year from the date of purchase. Please accept our apologies for the inconvenience" ...and when money back requested: "Hi, You will be refunded within 3 months. Regards. Canauxrama" BE CAREFULL WITH ANY FORM OF PRE-PAYMENTY!!! I'm not suprised that they have problems with customers.

Spent the last 2 hours stuck in double locks. There was not one thing of significant interest to look at when we eventually got out of the locks. In-between the guided tour audio they play music that would only be suitable for a taboo circus act. on a lighter note the pan au chocolat and coffee for 2euro was a bargain. I'm sorry but this tour was definitely not for us (30 year old married couple).

I did this activity with my friend and I should notice it was one of the most unusual boat trips we've done so far! You go 6 meters down of the canal's level and continue moving underground. Then you come up again and you pass all the most important sights in Paris: Bastille, Louvre Museum, Notre-Dame, Eiffel Tower and all the famous bridges above the Seine river. Everything is accompanied by the guide talking in French and English. Our guide Emeric was very cool, it was a pleasure to listen to him and to learn new things about Paris. The cruise provided us also with some pancakes and drinks that I really appreciated. You can stay inside the boat when it's cold and go out when it's warm enough. Well, it was a very nice experience, I recommend :)

We did the canals and the Seine combined. Was well worth the money. The crew were instantly welcoming and made you feel part of the family. We were offered a special Epiphany cake, and were told the various French customs relating the that celebrated day. The canal is worth seeing as you go through 3 locks, which was a rare experience for us, and the cruise down the Seine was a pleasant mix of informative stories, pop culture tidbits and music. Would recommend!
