The Seine River boat trip is good, although it is a huge boat with many people on board, it has a place for everyone quietly. Be ahead in line to get a good seat on the boat for a great view of the city. Don't expect a romantic walk, but it's ok. Boarding time is calculated to arrive exactly at 9 pm in front of the Eiffel Tower, when it begins to flash its lights. It is a unique and unforgettable moment. The city tour takes place at night just after the cruise, in a closed 2-story bus. Honestly would not do it again, we can barely see the sights. There are no photo stops. But it's also ok for those who are well located, to get a sense and come back the next day to visit.

Tour operator seemed slightly disorganised at first as we were given tickets fir the wrong tour and it was only once we insisted twice that this was not our tour that they corrected the situation. Bus tour was ok and is useful as an introduction to Paris if you are a first time visitor. Shame that the bus temporarily stop at some locations and give you an opportunity to get a quick photo from the bus. The cruise was enjoyable. All in all tour is value for money

O passeio de barco foi incrível, principalmente pelo espetáculo da torre Eiffel iluminada! Super recomendo! O passeio de ônibus é legal, mas não espere tirar boas fotos Durante este passeio, por causa do movimento do ônibus, do reflexo da luz nas janelas. Valeu cada euro!!!!
