Booked on line a few days before - very easy to navigate site. Boats depart right across the street from Eiffel Tower, so easy to find. There is a choice of two sailings, we opted for the 20.30 one. Excellent service throughout the whole experience. The waiter was very attentive, food was excellent (although only one vegetarian option for each course), and there was plenty to drink - we had a glass of pink champagne, a bottle of red wine and a bottle of white wine between 3 of us, all included in the price. Didn't feel like we were on a boat at all - very smooth passage. And stunning sites to finish it all off. Well worth the money, we had a great evening, just went too quickly!

Hop on board for a refreshingly new perspective of central Paris. Take a relaxing 1-hour river cruise of Paris and enjoy unbeatable views of the city's most memorable landmarks.

Your guide will entertain you throughout the leisurely cruise with anecdotes and intriguing historical facts. The Paris cruise goes as far as the Institute of the Arabic World at the Ile Saint-Louis before returning you to the Eiffel Tower, and it's the most relaxing way to sightsee in Paris and is the only way to explore the city free of traffic noise and congestion.
We strted the trip at 7 p.m. just before the golden hour ended. We caught the last glimpse of sun shining in that day and Paris looked beautiful. It was a great experience.
Start your day in Paris with one of its most enchanting attractions, and take a 2.5-hour cruise along the Canal Saint-Martin and River Seine. Embark in the center of the Parc de la Villette, and cruise gently along the canal to Rue de Crimée’s elevated bridge, as it goes through the Bassin de la Villette, before entering the magnificent Rotonde by Ledoux. Adventure begins with the first lock at the Récollets Center, where you will catch sight of the Hotel du Nord. Discover the real Canal Saint-Martin, filled with the poetry of its romantic paths and pedestrian bridges, bordered by chestnut trees and populated by fishermen. Then, the boat will be plunged into darkness as you enter a tunnel of more than 1-mile, taking you through a mysterious underground vault that is perforated by light holes. Filled with magic and beauty, when you emerge into the light at Arsenal Port, you will see the...
It's a nice boat cruise on an offbeat path. I liked how I had not seen this part of Paris before. It's like a hidden gem. The seine cruises are a dime a dozen and this cruise differentiates itself. I read some of the other reviews and I didn't find the speaker annoying, nor did I find the seats uncomfortable. I agree that you could bring a snack and a drink. The weather I had was perfect +23 and sunny. Bring sunglasses and bring a jacket just in case. You go through 1.5km of underground cavern type area. Very cool. You see lots of different bridges too. As far as improvement on how to make this even better, I do agree with someone else's comment that the last 20minutes on the Seine seems too short. It would have been nicer if this cruise went up the river farther to the statue of liberty and turned around and came back to Orsay. (just because the Canal and Seine are two different worlds). They really complement each other. Do this if you've been to paris B4.

Matthew was a wonderful guide who gave historical information in a lively manner and shared behind the tour information to further enhance our experience. Seeing the number of bones in the catacombs is an overwhelming experience, but the behind the scenes part of the tour added so much more. The history shared as to why the catacombs were created was fascinating. I was disappointed when other tour participants did not seem to understand the need to tip your guide. I guess some don’t realize after the admission fees and the tour company takes its cut, there’s not much left over for the guide. REMEMBER TO TIP YOUR GUIDE IF YOU ENJOYED YOUR TOUR! 10% of the tour cost is reasonable
The tour with Emilie was fantastic! She adapted well to the change of my husband not attending the tour snd personalized it very well to my interests. Her insights and information about the history of Le Marais gave me great background for walking around on my own later. The food stops were amazing! I loved learning about the history of the Poilane bread, the buckwheat crepe with ham and cheese was my first savory crepe and so good! The confitture shop was out of this world and the chocolatier Edwin at EdwarT have so much wonderful info about chocolate origins as well as fantastic flavors. The Merveilleux were mervielleux! Melt in your mouth, light creamy flavor explosion!
The meet up location was easy to find. Our guide had us try new things, but also let us try things we were comfortable with. We tried many different things and I fell in love with so much!
LAURA was an excellent guide . Very vivid descriptions . We enjoyed the tour so much!
Absolutely fantastic experience with a very nice and professional guide!
