Perfect length river cruise with knowledgeable hostess who spoke in English and French to explain the sites of historical significance. Also drinks and snacks available on board.
Claire – United Kingdom


Nice way to see some of Paris’ important buildings from the water. A beautiful experience, especially in the evening. There is a covered area, but you can also sit on the deck. This is cold in winter, but gives a nice way to see it best.
Peter – Netherlands


Really enjoyable boat ride even though the weather wasn’t good. We sat inside but you still get great views. Staff were friendly & helpful and the commentary was informative. There were toilets & refreshments on board – I’d definitely do it again.
