    great experience!! our guide spoke in both French and English (very well) to explain the history of places along the way and to point out extra things to see. the ticket information said to bring headphones but at the tour it was explained they were now doing the tour in person rather than by headsets to improve the experience so they weren't needed!

    Money well spent! Our tour guide was really good and bilingual (French and English). We took the 8:20pm ride and it was perfect as we also saw the beautiful sunset. Only too bad that the Notre Dame was still under construction but the rest was wonderful! Paris is really gorgeous whether daytime, sunset or at night! Highly recommend this Seine River Cruise!

    Really liked the boat trip however seating is not great and we could hardly understand the explanations given by our guide as the mainly spoke french. We purchased the ticket that included a soft drink and snack and we got a delicious crepe. Loved the view and we were lucky with the weather. Overall we enjoyed the boat trip a lot and do recommend it as good intro to Paris.
