I went to Paris with my daughter and we had a wonderful time, the sightseeing cruise was fantastic and a definite must do! You can do the full cruise at once or hop on and off when you like as each stop is at the major sights. You can hop on as many times as you like !

Used it over a 2 day period but only 1 day needed, and of course u hope weather is good. Need to check how close Metro stations are to boat stops, ie a long long walk at Eiffel Tower.

Not a great cruise

Not happy with the experience, there was no story behind the cruise, nobody was telling us what do we see at the certain points, as if we had a Taxi drive instead of sightseeing cruise.

Poor service and overcrowded

We queued for almost 2 hours while boats stopped but did not take on passengers. Very overbooked and poor service. Would not do again-much quicker to do metro and take a full Seine cruise for the sights.

This is an amazing way to visit and enjoy Paris. Everyone who visits Paris should definitely try this. You can get in and out whenever and wherever you want with a pass, which makes it easy to visit the most popular monuments.

Lovely way to see Paris from the Seine. We hopped on and off all weekend! Charming staff too. Couldn’t recommend too highly and much less expensive when booked in advance.

Disappointed
Andrea_H
, Apr 2022
The cruise itself is ok. The ride felt safe and there were plenty of stops. My biggest upset is that there is no communication. I tried to use my first days tickets and was turned away because the men in the booth said I was in the wrong location. I went to 2 different spots and nobody knew what these tickets were for. I gave up and tried again later the next day and after going to the two previous booths in hopes that new employees would tell me if I could use my tickets. I could and I was able to use one quick run. I didn’t take the entire river tour and I’m disappointed my two days were wasted due to lack of communication. $150 for one 15 minute ride.

I felt scammed
Wisarut_S
, Mar 2022
Before we did our trip I asked the provider if the boat cruise is also available on Monday, because of my booking. He answered with yes and so I believed him. On Monday we were waiting over an hour for the next bit because you have to wait up to 40min for a boat. We saw no boat at this day. I felt scammed. We booked for 2 days and uses it only one day. Bad experience and I contacted the provider, but I even get a response.
