Owner description: Take the time to discover Paris by river. We are located 100 meters from the Eiffel Tower on the river Seine. Enjoy a 1 hour sightseeing cruise in "chic" boats. Go through some famous Paris sites like the Trocadero, Notre Dame, Palais Royal and the Eiffel Tower. During your cruise, you could enjoy a drink even Champagne or a snack at the bar situated in each boat.

We where so looking forward to this river cruise however it was quiet disappointing to say the least. The boat went so slow, that as i looked around i saw at least 3 people had fallen asleep . Definitely not a good sign!!! it went so slow other boats were cruising by us, i seriously couldn't wait for it to be over as i found it quiet boring.The volume for the pre recorded audio guide was so low that you could hardly hear anything. We had asked for it to be put up louder but with so many people on the boat talking and chatting you could hardly hear it over all the noise. It was nice to take photos but quiet upsetting that we had no idea what we where looking at.

On our last night in Paris, we walked down to the pier across the street from the Eifel Tower and purchased tickets down by the boat. My wife wanted the "snack" option which in her case included a crepe with Nutella and a cup of hot tea. I purchased the light meal which included a sandwich and a glass of table wine. It was a little chilly so dress warmly if you go on the evening tour. We totally enjoyed the cruise! We took some excellent photos and we loved the lights of Paris! I would definitely do it again and I recommend it!

We pre-purchased our voucher only to be told when we arrived to board our boat that it was a fake voucher.

Worst experienced we had around Europe and the only time we were told this despite booking countless other cruises through our travel agent.

Really enjoyed this trip.
There was quite a queue to buy tickets and the boat was filling up and nearly ready to depart. The couple in front of us took for ever to buy their tickets and at one point I thought they might be negotiating to buy the boat. Naturally they were the last onto the boat and we had to wait for the next one which turned out to be a blessing. The next trip boarded within 20-30 minutes and we were right at the front and so had our pick of the seats and were able to sit inside at the front. The view was excellent.

The trip length of one hour suited us perfectly.

The multi-language commentary had enough information to satisfy us.
A good trip. I would imagine that all the boat trips are fairly similar. This one cost 13 euro without any food or drink extras. I thought that was reasonable for the length of trip involved.

We had such a great time on this december evening. The service and the boat were really clean and lovely. The champagne was delightful. We had such a romantic hour cruising through Paris famous monument.

I must say the comments should be more full of details, but obviously you have the view, so you don't really care.
