I have been advised to take cruise, but there're two: one along the Seine, the other along The Saint Martin Canal heading to parc du villette. My friend told me kids would probably love Saint Martin Canal cruise. However I found that the latter route will take 2.5 hrs. So it seems pretty
long, that we probably have to prepare ourselves some snacks. As for the Seine route, the whole journey will only take 1 hr without stop, or we could choose the cruise company that allow hop on and off route.
1) which would you suggest to us given that we have kids aged between 6-9?
2) If taking Seine cruise, which cruise company is good and reliable? Do I need hop on and off?
I'm also planning to go to the famous landmark like Eiffel Tower, Jardin des Plantes etc. So could this cruise serve as a mean of alternate transportation to do these places? However, I am a bit concerned how frequent are their cruises at each of those 8 hop off/on points.
3) We want to go to one of the parks in Paris, which one would you recommend: Jardin des Plantes, or Jardin du Luxembourg or other parks?
