It's a nice boat cruise on an offbeat path. I liked how I had not seen this part of Paris before. It's like a hidden gem. The seine cruises are a dime a dozen and this cruise differentiates itself. I read some of the other reviews and I didn't find the speaker annoying, nor did I find the seats uncomfortable. I agree that you could bring a snack and a drink. The weather I had was perfect +23 and sunny. Bring sunglasses and bring a jacket just in case. You go through 1.5km of underground cavern type area. Very cool. You see lots of different bridges too. As far as improvement on how to make this even better, I do agree with someone else's comment that the last 20minutes on the Seine seems too short. It would have been nicer if this cruise went up the river farther to the statue of liberty and turned around and came back to Orsay. (just because the Canal and Seine are two different worlds). They really complement each other. Do this if you've been to paris B4.
We had a guided tour on the Eiffel tower also booked with GetYourGuide before we went on the boat trip. This suits well with all that was explained before on the Eiffel Tower where the guide pin pointed different hot spots which we then also recognized when travelling by boat. Meeting point is easily to be found as it is closest to Tour Eiffel at riverbank Seine. Tour is presented in English as well and provides nice views from the river onto the city of Paris. On the 1hr boat trip you can get some drinks as well as crepes and we have enjoyed it a lot! After the trip we had something to eat at the terrace right in front of the docks. The trip felt professional and well organized.
Very nice Family time. Great guide very crative with the idea of french songs included. I will recommend It!
Great guide, lovely start point and great scenery away from the biggest sites
Very well on time despite the weather we loved it !!!
