What people are saying about Seine River

Both wonderful activities. The panoramic night view from the tower was out of this world and breathtakingly beautiful. Would have benefited more, had the running commentary on the boat was also in English as their Wi-Fi guided audio was at times glitching.

Lovely cruise, very informative and great views. Very smooth sailing The man at the crepe stand was slightly rude

One of the best things you can do while you are in Paris is the sienne cruise at night. It is worth every penny!

Even with rain it was very nice! We really enjoyed to see the city from the boat!

Beautiful boat ride seeing many different places. The crepes were also delicious
