Booked 2 tickets for the 5PM/17:00 slot on a Sunday (early November). I had purchased the tickets the day before with no issues. We arrived about ~20min before the ride and saw only a few people lined up already. They checked our tickets and pass sanitaire, and it was pretty seamless. The cruise took off right on time. There was enough space on the boat. Definitely recommend bundling up since it was an evening ride in early November especially if you sit at the top. Brilliant experience, very much worth it. We didn't have any issues with tide as I saw with other reviews. We saw everything that the description said we would.

Dawie pronounced Davie was great! He was fun and entertaining. I enjoyed this tour a lot. I went to the Shakespeare bookstore and got the Hunchback of Notre Dame by Victor Hugo as he recommended. I’m excited to read it. I didn’t know he’s also the author of Les Misérables. Thank you Dawie! :)

The guide, Alberto from Mexico is really good in storytelling. His stories about Paris and France made me curious about the history side of this beautiful city.

Super great informative tour. Not too strenuous. Please see the dam and Louvre and learn a lot about Paris and its history.

The host was mastered with her explanations about the city and its history. Well known.
