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.
Beautiful way to take in the beauty of Paris from the Seine. Fascinating history about the 9 locks and each location in the canal. You can move around the boat to take pictures, which is great. Participants may want to pack a small snack because the only thing available on the tour was a small cup of coffee midway through.
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 !
Great trip. Well run, good value, delicious pizza, beautiful night time views of Paris. Very enjoyable.
Well worth the time... Locks and scenery all fascinating.. Be aware this is a one way trip..
