Great combo package

Great combination of boat tour and then lunch with view of the Eiffel Tower from our table. Service and food were excellent. Good options for appetizer, main, and dessert. I would recommend this package to others. One note is that lunch is not on the tour boat. If you want lunch and the tour on the boat, then choose a different tour.

Beautiful and recommendable!

The trip on the Seine was beautiful. If you have headphones with you, you can learn something about Paris and the surrounding area in your own language using your own smartphone using the ship's WLAN. After the tour we went to eat in the bistro. The food (3 course menu) was very good and had nothing to do with a classic bistro. The combination ship / food was just good and in our opinion it was worth it.
