Nice Tour
I definitely recommend a boat tour. The price was good.
I would have loved if there were seats available outside, you were only able to stand outside, the rest of the seats are „inside“, underneath the glass roof.
When the weather I really nice and it’s hot, it’d chose a boat without a roof next time, but if it’s cooler and windy, id book here again! Staff was really nice and kind, you are able to buy refreshments on the boat.

Excellent mode of transport when visiting the sites in Paris.
Feb 2020 • Family
This is by far one of the best ways to travel around if you are visiting the main sites in Paris.

Be sure to get the 2 day pass as it is not much more than a 1 day pass and you could get so much out of it.

Not worthy , not recommended.
Feb 2020
Actually, I liked the idea to ride and have a rest while taking a tour in the Seine transferring between the most popular attractions, but I regretted because it was colder (in February), was expensive, not working drinks machine, and it was not a guided tour, boring, and nobody can talk in English and explain well for non-French visitors. Also, I was surprised that I have to switch between the boats in order to continue to Ile de la Cite for example and so I wasted a lot of time and lost some attractions visit chance.

Don't Book Ahead
Feb 2020
We booked ahead through Tripadvisor a two-day pass. We weren't able to use it the first day and on the second day we took the boat to the next stop (not very far). The man at the ticket booth told us that we could use the pass the next day as long as we didn't exceed the 24 hour period from when we first used it. When we came the next morning it was closed due to flooding and would possiblly be open in the afternoon. We were told that it closes for too much of too little water. Also, this a transportation only option. Buying ahead was a waste of money.
