Great experience! Easy to find the loading point for the boat and get a seat (all the top deck, outdoor seats are great - you can’t go wrong). It was a lovely way to see all the bridges and learn about many buildings along the river. The tower lit just after we embarked, and started to twinkle right as we sailed by it back to the dock. Perfection!

Our overall experience was great! We decided to take the cruise the day we got off the plane to get a great view of the city! The tickets we bought had no problems and were quickly scanned. My family and I were able to get a row on the top and got beautiful pictures of the Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame, Musée d’Orsay, and more! The ride was super peaceful, and there were plenty of times when Parisians would wave at us to say hi! The only qualms we had is if you are listening to the audio guide, you won’t be able to take pictures while listening (the audio guide pulls up with the wifi page, so if you try to take a picture, it will close the audio guide)! But other than that, it was a great experience!

Had previously booked for a diner cruise but decided to change it as lack of time. We went at night just for the cruise. It was still a very enjoyable cruise. We realize that just the cruise was enough. We had diner somewhere else afterwards. Recommenced.
