Very recommended! If one wants a Seine boat tour with maximum privacy, this is it. We got to the dock by bycicle (there's a Vélib' bike rent station nearby). Raphael, our captain, was there right in time. He is a very friendly openminded guy who explained a lot and answered every question we asked. The boat trip starts in the south west of paris near the Île Seguin giving you enough time to spend on the river enjoying the views of the historical buildings. Be sure: Everyone along the river will be jealous seeing you in a classic motor boat enjoying a glass of Rosé wine in the late afternoon sun. Definitly worth it.
I booked this for my partners birthday and what an absolutely amazing experience. Not only did we see all the outlined attractions, the food was top quality, and our host Nordine was an absolute gentleman! Not only was he attentive recommending the best cocktails, he allowed me to discreetly pay for a last minute suprise birthday cake add on (sparklers included) which I didn’t even know was an option. I would highly recommend this experience.
It was unfortunate that the meeting place was changed. The new meeting place was quite a distance farther and the weather was bad. The food was good but a tasting appetizer didn’t work for me. I don’t eat scallops or foie gras. Please return to selecting an appetizer and entree. The tasting dessert was fine. People should be aware there will likely be additional charges for water, etc.
I had a great time. The hostess quickly switched to English so I could clearly understand. The mobile map made it easy to keep us with what attractions we were passing, but made it easy to just relax and enjoy the sights. I recommend this to everyone!
Just got back to our hotel after a relaxing two and a half hour trip on the river . Raphaël is an excellent host for the private boat trip, very accommodating and knowledgable. He Speaks excellent English, and has a lovely boat !
