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.

In the top !

The host was really nice and clear in his explanations. You don't see the time passing, it's an activity to do again and to advise your loved ones. We were there for our friend's bachelor party, she was completely won over and the icing on the cake: The champagne!! Nothing to say about the performance (and the sun was there too!)

Speed is fun

Sightseeing and the Mr. Quickspeaker were a bit of a strain. He often spoke where nobody was and so he was already difficult to understand and the speed of speech gave us the rest. We weren't in Canal St. Martin either, but speed made you happy!
