Crowded and Disfunctional
Kaitlyn_B
, Aug 2021
I had heard good things about this boat cruise, unfortunately didn’t enjoy it. It was overcrowded with rude people. Most of the handheld speakers for the audio guide were broken and it was frustrating to hold something the whole time. The description said their was AC, but there is not it’s just open air. Look for a different company with smaller boats that has more attention to the experience instead of just funneling masses of people through.

Disappointing
Stephan_J
, Aug 2021
Nice enough boats, but we were shocked that we had to wait in line without social distancing for quite some time prior to boarding the boat. The most disappoint aspect of the cruise was the audio guide which was absolute rubbish and failed to give you a good idea and feeling for the stunning sites you see from the boat

Exactly what We wanted
Joseph_J

The trip was just right a d probably best for the beginning of a first trip to Paris. No booze, not too long to get cold or bored, it hits the core historic area and sights from the Tower to Notre Dame. If I wanted a romantic tour or detailed guided tour I would have chosen differently

A visual feast from the Seine
Michelle

We enjoyed this visual feast of sightseeing from the Seine. My phone battery was too low to take advantage of the audio guide but this was our first day in Paris and it was a great way to start!

Website not in sync?!
Matt
, Aug 2020
Website not in sync?! We booked seats over the internet for 10:00 am on Sunday. Rushed to the dock to find out that boats only leave at 12:00 am ?!. There was no sign, no info, nothing. The info came from the man hosing the pier. Unfortunately we had plans in the afternoon, so had to rush off after the cruise. The cruise itself was ok, nothing to complain about.

Boat itself was nice, however tour guide voice gave not much details about the city. Not very good tour overall, more of just a boat ride. Would not recommend

Cosy and warm
Joanne_I

The boat was lovely! Comfortable and warm. Nice interior with glass windows all around so you can see the view. Nice staff Only down side was that I didn’t know what sites I was passing, nothing was really being said. Didn’t bother me too much because I just want to enjoy the ride in peace. But if that’s the type of cruise you want with lots of information then you might be dissatisfied a little bit. But for me and my beloved it was a nice cosy time to spend together

Evening cruise makes Paris looks even better
stellaruthperez
, Jan 2020
I chose this particular cruise because it advertised that it had audio headsets. I did not notice any (I stayed on the upper deck). They, however, had a sound system that announces just the main attraction as the boat passes them, but not much info. They also have an app you could use -- I did not know about this beforehand but just saw a sign when I was already on the boat. I was thus left with hardly any information on what these places and buildings were that we were passing.When I finally managed to get it, I heard mostly static. I gave this four stars and not three because it is probably my fault that I did not find ways to know how to download the app beforehand.

Not worth it.

The commentary kept cutting out it didn’t matter if we used our own headphones or their device. The commentary we could hear was not not interesting. Only if you were outside on top could you really see anything. It was cold so being outside wasn’t ideal.
