      Overcrowded with annoying music
      This evening cruise was shortened stopping just before reaching Isle de Cite so we were not able to see anything on that side of the river. Should have scheduled when the full tour was available. Never-the-less, the sites were amazing as they lit up at night. Two things detracted from the tour: 1) the upper deck was ridiculously over crowded and the rows of chairs placed so close together that there was almost no leg room. Despite that, people kept coming and pushed themselves into every chair jamming our knees and feet in the process. 2) the 'lounge singer' music certainly didn't add to the ambience and the speakers were placed so that they couldn't be avoided. The crowd of people on board were loud, and apparently felt a need to use every underpass as an opportunity for howling and hooting during the entire length. Huh? Will probably try another tour operator next time after checking reviews.

      They’ll just cancel.
      We booked a boat trip for new year, only to have it cancelled as we were boarding our flight to Paris. The reality is that we booked this because things get booked up on new year, so cancelling it just before is ludicrous. They blamed a “blackout”, which is ridiculous 48 hours before the event. Don’t bother booking - they can’t be trusted and will leave you with nothing to do at a busy time. Absolute joke.

      Excellent Efficient Tour
      Informational tour took exactly 1 hour went up and down the river very thorough information. Location was easy to find and very convenient from Eiffel Tower area. We had our tickets on the iPhone so checking in was a breeze. The staff is very helpful and friendly. I highly recommend this tour.

      Poor Sound
      I did not like this tour. I went to learn about the city, but the sound quality was so poor I only heard 10% of the presentation.

      Wonderful boat ride down the Seine. It was both in English and French. It was a great way to see the sights of Paris from a different angle.

      Relax on the Seine
      The tour guide was very informative and provided a good back drop to a panoramic Paris late afternoon and early evening. A very relaxing cruise away from the busy traffic of Paris.

      Great guide, stunning grounds!
      We were unsure of selecting the 7 hour experience, but are delighted that we so did. Had we not done this we would probably have focused more on the building rather than the grounds. Momo was an outstanding guide who moved quickly and has a effervescent personality. He expertly shared with us these amazing grounds. Bravo Momo!

      Really fun informative Seine cruise on a fantastic boat
      We have done something similar to this in London. We found the Paris one just as good. It was really informative and the guide was funny and full of knowledge. The kids enjoyed it too. The boat was clean, had lots of facilities and we would highly recommend this!

      Good for sightseeing, skip the champagne
      Pleasant ride, the champagne option could be managed with a bit more flair (queuing at bar, ticket not recognised, plastic cups).

      Amazing views, average trip
      They did not have space in the boat for us for a time slot we were booked for, so we had to wait for 30 mins for the next boat. Not all boats are the same - I believe the one we weren’t able to board was bigger, newer, and nicer. Tour guide speaks both, French and English, but you have to be at a specific spot and listen really hard to actually hear what they are saying (audio quality is not great). You can buy drinks at the bar during the trip. On the plus side - Views are amazing and staff is very nice.

      Enjoyable if the weather's nice.
      I enjoyed the boat tour. The boat itself is quite large and can fit a lot of people. It's just an up and back tour, which takes about an hour and a half. Good way to see a lot of highlights quickly, but not in depth.

    When buying the tickets for the river cruise I was under the impression that the experience would be as advertised.upon getting to the boarding dock there is a sign,( that looks like it has been there for quite a while ) that said the boat will not cruise the whole river due to a previous flood. To take up the 1 hour time, the boat just drove very slow 1/4 of the length of the original route and turned around..the landmarks it had us see were buildings we had walked by to get to the port. It was just upsetting to have to pay full price for half the experience.

    Dear W965JEchantalb, Firstly, we would like to thank you for your precious feed-back. Your opinion and inputs are very important to us in order to ensure the continuous improvement of the quality of our services and we sincerely appreciate your contribution. We are sorry to learn that your experience at Vedettes de Paris didn’t meet your expectation. Indeed, for security reasons, the high level of the Seine river forced us to modify our usual pathway, causing the boat to avoid the historical center of Paris. Unfortunately, alternatives pathways don’t offer the same experience. Those pathways can be modified at any time depending on the level of the water. The new pathway was posted in the lines before boarding and our team informed every passenger of those changes before embarking and at the cash desk. Our partners were also informed as soon as the level of the water started rising. We apologies for the inconvenience, Yours sincerely, Customer Relations Department Vedettes de Paris

    The boat was a nice way to see the sights and learn the history of some of the most well known structures in the city. The tour was fun and informative, but many people were standing, taking photos, and blocking some views which made it less enjoyable. I'd recommend finding a spot at the front or back.

    The tickets will get you on a boat leaving around the time of the reservation, though depending on your place in line you may get onto boats leaving some minutes later. This was great since I had only a few minutes to spare and wasn't worried about missing the tour.

    We had some extra time our last day, and wanted to try out the cruise. We are two 20year old girls and had had a good experience! We recommend putting on warm clothes, mittens and a hat is smart as there will be some wind. You can also buy snacks and champange on your trip.
    We would recommend this tour!:-)

    The snack was not included, we had to pay extra. The tour was “suppose” to be in english. The tour guide spoke mostly in french and not in english, few english sentences here and there but all explanations were in frence. The speakers volume was low even-though we did ask them to raise the volume but nothing was done. In general it was a total waste of time and money and i wouldn’t recommend it to anyone.

    We arrived 16 minutes early but the line was already so long that when they allowed everyone on the boat the upper deck filled up before we got on. This left us sitting in the lower indoor seats which wouldn’t have been a problem except the tour guide is on the top level and there are no speakers in the boat so none of the passengers inside can hear the tour guide and you only see what’s on your side of the boat unlike the people on the open top upper level. I found a small sticker on the wall that mentioned they have an app (no one said anything about it or gives you any information/directions when boarding) so I downloaded it but the audio wouldn’t work. Sadly it ended up just being a 30-40 minute indoor boat ride but we did pass some beautiful structures.

    We booked our trip for 11:00 but the boat left a little early and we missed it. Luckily we were able to take any available tour that day so we ended up taking an evening ride at 5pm. The views and lights in the evening were spectacular and we arrived back just as the Eiffel Tower was putting on its 6pm light show. The guide switched back frequently between English and French so it was a little hard to follow along but only because she had alot to say! Highly recommend this boat tour.

    We turned up with only minutes to spare and got on the boat without a problem. The guide spoke both French and English and was knowledgeable in pointing out the many buildings and bridges of Paris. It is a short trip of 1 hour but well worth doing for the views and having a little quieter time especially in a hot August tourist season.

    Unfortunately the day of our tour the boat wasn't able to follow the typical itinerary and could not travel by all of the main attractions. This was due to previous rain and the water level of the river so beyond the company's control, I realize. Also though it was a beautiful sunny day, the roof top seating was completely closed leaving only a few seats outdoors, all seating was enclosed which was far less enjoyable. The narrator of the tour was a little difficult to hear and didn't manage to captivate our attention- this was probably mostly because she didn't have many monuments or major sites to talk about.
