NEVER IN YOUR LIFE book...
Jimena_P
, Apr 2022
NEVER IN YOUR LIFE book with viator. The worst customer service I have experienced. They truly don’t care about their customers. I booked this 3 months ago and have been waiting for 3 months for an issue i had. They say they will contact me and never do. They have no regards for their customers. Apart from that I booked this tour on another website that is actually helpful and it was an amazing experience

It’s the cattle call of cruises
Elizabeth_V
, Apr 2022
There were so many people waiting to board (as they do not provide tix to a specific tour) the upper deck was completely full when we boarded. The have a loo on board but it wasn’t operational. The guided tour was difficult to hear as internet was spotty and announcements often occurred while cruising under a tunnel.

Very disappointing
Laura_B
, Mar 2022
We were quite disappointed with the trip overall as was expecting to have a tour guide explaining buildings/sights as we were passing, but there was none of that - only individual phone type things that you could hold to your ear if you wanted… however several of these were not working properly near where we sat, so this wasn’t an option anyway! Left feeling quite dissatisfied & wouldn’t recommend this tour

Definitely an excursion to include in your visit to Paris. For the price, it is definitely worth it. Great for taking pictures with the Eiffel Tower at the end of the cruise duration
