Well organized and easy to book and get to. Best way to see the Eiffel tower and the bridges (21 of them), at night! The boats leave every 1/2 hour so they are never crowded. You can follow the scenes by using the boat's free wi-fi which connects to the audio guide in your preferred language. This was while we were on the top deck. On the way back, we moved downstairs where it wasn't windy. They have monitors showing live pictures of where we are headed. There are also audio guides attached to the seats that you pull out and listen to. 1 hour trip. Well worth it!

Trip taken 24/10/19. Enjoyable, though nowhere near as interesting as Thames cruise: didn't seem as historic. Audio guide via smartphone, but my 5 year old phone couldn't log on the wifi (rest of family fared ok - must update my phone). Charred remains of Notre Dame were poignant. E-ticket stated departure every hour from 1030. However, we turned up at 1145 and boat sailed at 1200. Overall, worth doing.

It was really good to be able to look at the sites and listen to the audio at the same time. We were able to get the audio on our iPhone and then walk around with it so we could move around the boat freely. We also got great photos on the top deck. Highly recommend.
