I booked this way as tickets were cancellable, whereas booking directly with the Louve you just have to forfeit the tickets if sick. The ticket worked well. A day before I got notifications both by WhatsApp and by email with information about entry, and the actual digital ticket. It was easy, Going to the Louvre early is a good idea. It was busy already st 10 am but crazily busy at 11.30 am. SO many people. The crowds are a bit much and this was mid October ( German school holidays). The boat trip was easy to find. It was well run. A bit of a boring mass trip, but the Seine is beautiful and it was nice to slow down and rest our weary feet. The commentary was in 4 different languages so just a few pieces of info at a few spots.

La comida es del restaurant Maxim’s que es una institución bien establecida de la ciudad, nada malo por señalar, buena presentación y buen sabor. La música (voz y piano) es una buena mezcla entre clásicos que hacen alusión a los monumentos, y a la vez, romántica. La vista es hermosa y creo que junto con la música, son una combinación que al pasar del atardecer al anochecer hacen de esta experiencia, algo imperdible para los enamorados.

Had a great day. Our guide Anna was wonderful and managed to rearrange the day so we didn't miss out on anything after the Eurostar was delayed

A great experience- the tower looked spectacular at night. A memorable evening.

delicious food, friendly staff, amazing experience!!
