Was an excellent experience! It started with a call to the emergency phone number, where the person was super helpful when we said we are stuck at the station desperately waiting for a cab. Once we arrived, thankfully, on time, starting from the welcoming, the service was exceptional. We were already happy with such service, but the real gem was inside the cruise ship and mouthwatering food experience. I’d highly recommend this lunch/dinner cruise! A MUST in Lyon!

Very good experience. The cabin crew are welcoming and professional! Hermès II is magnificent. The service lived up to my expectations. I find it a shame that the drinks are so expensive. In addition, it is quite difficult to listen to the audio guide while enjoying the meal and the scenery ... especially when the seats on board do not offer the same view. I still have fond memories of this lunch cruise.

Trip was very good and food could not be faulted, the commentary was not very good as everyone was making a noise and the speakers were not loud enough. It was a cold day and the heating was turned up far too high, it was like a Sauna when the sun shone.
