Advice: Call before arriving on site to confirm that the flood does not change the route, even if for walks without dinner, boat low enough so is not affected by navigation restrictions due to flood. Do it on weekdays to avoid the rush. What is nice is that you will have the choice between indoor and outdoor once in the boat. And an audio guide richer in languages than in content to tell the truth, but make your own guide for your sweetheart or your guests on a background of French music :-) For small wallets: bring your drinks with you, the mini bottle of 'evian is 3 € in the boat distributor.

This was an excellent little boat trip that didn’t disappoint. With the smooth, clean boat and informative commentary from the app provided, we were given a brief history lesson which was exactly what we were expecting. We were fortunate enough to select the boat trip time that corresponded with the sunset therefore we were presented with both Paris at day as well as Paris at evening with showed the city in lights which was amazing.

The river cruise was wonderful. We went at night and had great views of both sides of the river due to the top deck. The top deck was comfortable and had seating all around the boat. This was important because i saw other boats with seats just facing forward and that limits your options. Wonderful cruise and booking process-no issues at all. Thank you!
