Very recommended! If one wants a Seine boat tour with maximum privacy, this is it. We got to the dock by bycicle (there's a Vélib' bike rent station nearby). Raphael, our captain, was there right in time. He is a very friendly openminded guy who explained a lot and answered every question we asked. The boat trip starts in the south west of paris near the Île Seguin giving you enough time to spend on the river enjoying the views of the historical buildings. Be sure: Everyone along the river will be jealous seeing you in a classic motor boat enjoying a glass of Rosé wine in the late afternoon sun. Definitly worth it.
No warm greeting to welcome you on board, surprising given this is hospitality and you'd want a lovely greeting. The boat was big, yet even then no warnings for people not to sit too close to each other I practically had a woman sit on my lap. Scary in a pandemic. Audio guide signal kept dropping out, so gave up trying to listen. Horrific graffiti all over the city - why Paris? Good route and a different way to see Paris.
Good experience Nice cruise with rooftop accessibility.I had the cruise experience just during sunset between 9 pm to 10 pm.I have one suggestion ,authorities must request passengers at the rooftop to wear mask too and seats and cleaned after each trip as a covid safety standard.Thanks
A great cruise alongside the most famous monuments in Paris about which an audio guide provides interesting information. The boat is very big so there is a lot of space. Crepe after the cruise is a delicious end to the experience.
Just got back to our hotel after a relaxing two and a half hour trip on the river . Raphaël is an excellent host for the private boat trip, very accommodating and knowledgable. He Speaks excellent English, and has a lovely boat !
