Artur and his son were wonderful. The experience was unmatched. He treated us to complimentary champagne and pastries homemade by his wife. BEST EXPERIENCE!!! Artur made every effort to accommodate myself and spouse celebrating our 40th anniversary. I had booked Lakana FOUR MONTHS in advance, and they canceled last minute. This is why Arthur is fast becoming #1 on TripAdvisor

It was a marvellous experience. Absolutely worth it! The aperitif wasn't great though, it is just a soft drink, I think that it's a bit of false advertising, otherwise it was a great experience.

The skip the line tickets at The Louvre were great but it did not include the audio guide as stated in this booking. The audio guide was an additional 5€. The seine river cruise was amazing!

We did the cruise on a Friday night it was beautiful to see all the lights. Tour guide was knowledgeable about each bridge and

Highly recommended! Everything went well. We didn't have to queue anywhere! Great experience!
