This is a great, relaxing way to spend some time in Paris. I strongly recommend trying to get a nighttime cruise, as you get a beautiful view of the Eiffel Tower all lit up. Don’t stress if you see a long lineup, there is plenty of room on the boat. The audioguide through the wifi of the boat was good too.

Very good activity. Boarding was quick and easy, sat on the top deck as weather was good. Had a glass of wine each and enjoyed the sights of Paris at night and all the lights. An hour is a good amount of time and we enjoyed it a lot. Definitely recommend!!
