Wonderful experience definitely a must do when in Paris as you get a beautiful view of the city which you don’t get from being on land. I highly recommend it. And the seats are first come first serve so you want to get there extra early if you want a seat on the top open deck to view all of the lights properly.

We participated in this activity in January, booking two months in advance, it was an excellent experience we could listen to the history of the monuments in any language we wanted and above all getting on the boat is something inexplicable! I recommend, and above all with the app you can book easily and immediately!

It is best to sit up and then on the left side, then you can see the Eiffel Tower all the time on the way back. So you can capture the flashing tower (always on the hour for 5 minutes) from a perfect perspective. The commentary on each building/bridge is very sparse, but the music during the ride is nice. Would do it again anytime! There is a long queue as the ship departs on the hour. We were about halfway there and were about in the middle of the line, but got a great seat with no problems.
