It wasn’t too hard to find the boat dock so that was nice. There were lots of people waiting in line and we didn’t know if we would be able to get on but the vote fits many people and we got on and had a great seat up top. The views were beautiful. You can listen to an audio guide although I didn’t think it was that interesting. We did it right around sunset and it was perfect.

There were a lot of people at the meeting point at the jetty. But in the end everyone found a place on the roof of the ship and could enjoy a wonderful sunset ride. The tour is certainly at its most beautiful at this time of the day or evening. It was great.

If you are a visitor to Paris, a boat ride on the Seine is a must. It’s beautiful, relaxing and really helps you get oriented to the city. On this particular cruise the narration is kind of cheesy, but you’re not required to listen. Better to look up and experience the trip.
