We did the cruise during night time. It was amazing seeing Paris all illuminated. Def lived up to the name of “City of Light”. Everything went smooth. It was 1hr but I didn’t feel like it was too long or too short. Even got to see the Eiffel Tower sparkle from the river!

The cruise was nice, we had to wait in line about 10 minutes but we got on at the time we planned. We set upstairs so we can be outside but the seats were not do comfortable, wooden deck seats facing either left or right so it was uncomfortable trying to see both sides of the river. Some of the explenations were on the audioguide which was great in English, but some of them were live and it wad hard to understand her English.

A recommendation at dusk! Very nice tour. You have to be there in time so as not to wait too long for the next ship. Signage could be better to find the jetty. Friendliness of the staff has potential for improvement. We didn't use the audio option, so it's not possible to rate it. Very well agreed for families
