Very good experience. The cabin crew are welcoming and professional! Hermès II is magnificent. The service lived up to my expectations. I find it a shame that the drinks are so expensive. In addition, it is quite difficult to listen to the audio guide while enjoying the meal and the scenery ... especially when the seats on board do not offer the same view. I still have fond memories of this lunch cruise.

Trip was very good and food could not be faulted, the commentary was not very good as everyone was making a noise and the speakers were not loud enough. It was a cold day and the heating was turned up far too high, it was like a Sauna when the sun shone.

Excellent meal, very pleasant in summer especially as air conditioned boat.

Excellent meal, well done. A great family time thanks to this activity. If I had a little negative thing to say, it would be a lack of explanation on all the monuments that we could see, but frankly, it was a very very nice activity. Tables very well arranged because we are not on top of each other. Frankly, I recommend this superb activity with family, lovers or as a gift. It’s really good.
