Full description
Climb aboard for a romantic evening cruise along the Canal Saint-Martin and get off the beaten path in Paris. Embark at the former harbor of the Bassin de la Villette and admire the Rotonde de la Villette by Claude Nicolas Ledoux, built as part of the old city walls. Venture through the mysterious tunnels to experience a place of magic and beauty, and emerge at the Port de l’Arsenal to see the genius of the Place de la Bastille and its 52-meter high column. Join the River Seine and see some of the most beautiful monuments of the "City of Lights." Along the way, pass 9 locks, 2 swing bridges and 4 footbridges as you feast from the on-board dinner with drinks included.

Great experience, off the tourist trails

Super nice team took us to a Parisian area that was still unknown to us. The underground ride was very special and we were absolutely thrilled. We will definitely do this tour again sometime. It is definitely worth it. Only 4 stars: the food was only mediocre, but served nicely and edible. Drink prices also moderate. We will be back, thanks again to the really great hosts

Very nice performance

Very interesting cruise, discovery of unusual Parisian monuments, impressive Saint Martin canal. Very warm welcome by attentive staff, impeccable meal, very interesting comments. A faultless, we are absolutely delighted, and send a big thank you to the whole team.

Eating well, the canal cruise did not really take place

The organizer knew nothing of our participation, only after an examination by the boss were we allowed on board to the "reserve table". The trip itself ended after the first lock because the subsequent one was broken. We bobbed around for a while and then drove back. The ordered and paid performance of a canal cruise with sights simply did not exist. Instead, we drove in the opposite direction through a picturesque commercial area ... There was no excuse or at least a discount. The food was okay but nothing special. Overall, it was wasted money not to say rip off. Overall verdict: Not recommended Das Ess
