Although on the GYG website you get a 2:30 PM time there is no such think. The organizer offered me instead a 5 pm cruise. The guide was very informative and the ride was very pleasant. After the general tour from Pont Marie to the Eiffel Tower and back the cruise takes you further upstream where the real speed of the boat is achieved (65 kph upstream, 75 kph downstream). The pilot/guide then does a few maneuvers which are not for the fainthearted (turning very abruptly for example). All in all it was a great experience that offers a great alternative to the boring and slow 1 hour cruises down the Seine.

Speedmacht Spass

Sightseeing und der Mr. Schnellsprecher waren ein bisschen anstrengend. Er hat oft dahin gesprochen, wo gar niemand war und somit war er sowie so schon schwer zu verstehen und die Sprechgeschwindigkeit gab uns den Rest. Im Canal St. Martin waren wir auch nicht , aber dir Geschwindigkeit machte voll Laune!

Au top !

L'animateur a été vraiment sympa et clair dans ses explications. On ne voit pas passer le temps c'est une activité à refaire et à conseiller à ses proches. Nous étions là pour l'enterrement de vie de jeune fille de notre amie elle a été complètement séduite et la cerise sur le gâteau : Le champagne !! Rien à redire sur la prestation (et le soleil en plus a été au rendez-vous ! )
