This was an unexpected pleasure! We have done the “mega-boat” tour of the seine years ago & this was unique & much more enjoyable. There were only 4 of us, all related & 65+ years old. Artur was awesome. He took 174 (yes 174) photos of us & all the “money shots” on his phone & airdropped all of them to all 4 of our phones after the trip. That alone is priceless. He was engaging but not trying to be a drone tour guide. We throughly enjoyed & highly recommend.

This was a birthday celebration evening for myself and was wonderful. George was our guide for the night and he was so helpful and kind. The dinner cruise was good, the views simply breathtaking. We then took a bus to go to the Eiffel Tower and it was a very smooth process. Last we took the bus again and headed to see Moulin Rouge. Overall, wonderful experience

The river cruise was a great way of seeing the city by night. It was comfortable, relaxed and the commentary was really interesting. I would definitely recommend this activity!

seeing the fast pace paris is from the road is a life time experience one not to be missed excellent travel experience

Everything was excellent. Smooth, no issues with the logistics.
