What People Are Saying About Moulin Rouge
The staff at GetYourGuide were very helpful and the drivers did their best to book for an additional person with our group the last minute. They did a miraculous job securing the ride, the boat cruise, and a seat at Moulin Rouge. The boat cruise was great, the weather was chilly (mid April) and a pretty clear sky. Then night view of Paris is amazing. The boat was a bit crowded though and didn't find a place to sit at the desk right away. The Moulin rouge show is so colorful and the customes and the dancing were great. The waiting queue was a bit annoying, standing on our feet after we had a long day of walking around in Paris was a bit exhaustive.
Only a few words to say - perfect tour - nice guides - I can highly recommend this tour and we had a great time. Thank you.
There were really two parts to the tour, the river cruise and the Moulin Rouge. The Moulin Rouge part was excellent and one of the highlights of our trip to Paris. The shuttle service was top notch and our driver arrived at our hotel several minutes early. The river cruise, while nice, could have been better. The cruise company contracted uses covered boats so as a result you couldn't look up to see Paris at night. The roofs were glass, but covered with a mesh to prevent tourists during the day from getting sunburned. You could see out the sides fine, but it did detract from the experience...especially since we could see that EVERY OTHER SHIP on the river was either open top or had an upper level that people could stand on and look around freely.
Nice cruise, but before we left the meeting point, my husband was told his clothing wouldn't be appropriate, nice shorts and shirt. No time to go back to hotel, so the girl made us "run" to a little shop she knew, & we were made to purchase $150.00 pair of pants, or forfeit the evening. After the cruise,(which was great but would have been better in the dark), we went to Moulin Rouge, where clothing of all kinds was seen, including jean shorts, t-shirts, sandals etc.. This was evidently a little scam, to get a kick back on a pair of pants. Show was spectacular, acrobatics, comedy, great costumes, men will love it, not appropriate for children, unless they are used to seeing topless women! All in all, a fun evening, beautiful leisurely cruise, excellent, picturesque views, and a great variety show at Moulin Rouge, well worth the money, (accept for the pants).
