    The table by the window was so lovely, with a welcome glass of champagne and appetizer treats. Our waitress was charming, and the four course dinner to follow was delicious! Cruising by Paris at night, while listening to live music was magical. Highly recommend!

    We booked the lunch cruise through Viator and it was an easy process. It’s also easy to find the boat, just across from the Eiffel Tower and down some steps.

    Unfortunately the day of our cruise the level of the Seine had risen so we were docked and offered the option of a refund. Due to only having a short time in Paris we decided to go and make the most of it and we are glad we did! We were given complimentary tickets for the other boat tour which was on as soon as we boarded.

    On entering we were made to feel very welcome and our waiting staff escorted us to our table. We book the privilege service and the window seat was beautiful even though we weren’t moving. The food was also high quality and the wine was flowing.

    We had a lovely experience and when we left joined the queue for the other cruise which was able to go ahead. We also highly recommend that! I imagine the night cruise would also be lovely and if we return to Paris we will probably book that next time!

    Every trip to Paris should start with a boat cruise on the Seine. Artur was so helpful and his daughter, Patti, was a wonderful captain, guide and host. Our family of four enjoyed our cruise so much. It was relaxing and informative. Great way to see the sites and get oriented on our first day in Paris. The champagne, warm blankets and photos were a treat. Great memories and fun.

    The boat trip was only marred by the heavy rain that day which meant we could not go up river. We were given some discount token that was of little use to us.
    Food was excellent and more wine than we could drink.
    Staff friendly and accommodating.

    We really enjoyed this cruise. The food was amazing. Huge portions so we left some from the main and dessert but not because we didn't enjoy it. We had a window seat with great views and got some amazing pics. It was especially good to see the Eifell Tower lit up and twinkling on the hour! I would have given 5 stars but, as other reviewers have said, the location was a little confusing from the instructions. They said to go through a tunnel when it means arches. It is near the Radio France building, but if you go a bit further to the left of this (as you face the building) and cross the road on the zebra crossing you will be able to see the arches from there. The Theo boat is just a bit further on to the right. In reality, if the instructions were better worded, it would have been farly straight forward to get to. We met a lovely young american couple who were heading that way and they were able to help us.

    Adam was our tour guide for our one day highlights of Paris tour. He learned everyone’s name first and foremost and tried to keep everyone engaged and entertained. I was dually impressed with his depth of knowledge and background (ballet, nuclear physics, art, history - wow!), but also his positive energy and humor. It poured rain for Sacré Coeur and Montmartre, but he made light of it and highlighted the positive that we were some of the only people out, so we got to see more in less time. He also let those who needed extra rain gear take some time at a shop nearby to purchase it.

    He went into high level details on things I highly doubt other guides would do, especially in between stops (why the buildings looked a certain way or why the street was different). At The Louvre he powered through the crowds and really explained the big 3 (and a few other items that were of import)/had us really look at them for what they were: Art, as opposed to just snapping a selfie with them and moving on. He left us with good tips for future more in depth visits at all of our stops, too. And of course, he willingly took photos for everyone in their groups so they could have complete memories of their trip.

    Team Adam all the way! 5⭐️

    Great knowledgeable champagne tasting with lovely views. Also it was a plus to have access to the front of the boat to get photos and videos. Only downside was that the river was too high to see some sights.

    Was a lovely relaxing way to see the sites, but I don't think we got to see everything I was expecting - no Notre dame, bit disappointed

    Exciteful, nice and relaxing tour on the seine, though if you find the peer to board on! For our sake, there were four times peer changinging messages during the last 48 hours inadvance. The last peer was not the correct one, even. But when we at last gound the vehicle, the fantastic meals, music and the tour compensted for the frustration caused by wrong adresseing of the ship. Recommended!

    I’ve dreamed of a canal holiday but a houseboat on the River Seine, moored so close to the #Louvre? Well, this should be for the bucket list. Do you agree?

    Staff was nice and views were as expected. Boat comfortable enough. Food tasteless but at least didn’t make us sick. Couldn’t really expect more from food given price. If you’re on a tight budget don’t bother with a river cruise ; spend your money elsewhere. If you just want to go on a cruise this one is fine and at least isn’t super expensive
