Overall rating

4.3 / 5

based on 2,435 reviews

It was an amazing experience, the aura and the setting is so perfect. It is totally worth the money, but there are few minute issues with the service they provide. The total time is mentioned as 1hr 30mins, out of which 15mins of mooring time is included. Suppose the start is at 6:45pm, and they will have you on board by 6:30pm and serve you your starter as soon as you are on board. So basically you would be having your starter when people are still being boarded. Then the cruise starts at 6:45. They say they would provide coffee or tea on the package but everything other than three course meal is chargeable. The food is just barely at par, only the deserts are magnificent.

Nice tour with recorded audio guide. I liked the concept. If you go on the top deck of the bus when the weather is cold, the seats on the front near the windows should be less cold (they were taken when we did the tour). I would plan this in the beginning of your visit, as it gives you a nice overview and an idea of what you would like to see later.

L'expérience en bus était super on passe dans tous les endroits touristiques de la capitale c'est vraiment sympa ! La visite guidée sur smartphone complète bien l'experience, les commentaires des guides sont intéressants et l'application est très simple d'utilisation. Je recommande fortement

Romantic dinner on board the boat from which you can admire some of the most famous monuments of Paris ... Unique atmosphere, excellent dinner accompanied by Champagne, for a couple of hours you have the idea of living in another dimension .. . Highly recommended !!!!!!!!!!!?

I think it's worth using. we sailed at 21.00. It was cold but it is worth savoring these views.
