We stumbled upon the boat tour in a bit of a jet lagged stupor. We lucked out with a boat leaving just 10 minutes later. It was a great way to sit down and get a lay of the land to start our Paris trip....More

The view was okay! The sound on the speaker was really low so we couldn’t quite hear what they said.

Easy straightforward and informative. It was a last minute decision on our part and we were glad that they had room. Great way to see Paris from a different perspective.

Yes the cost is the same if you pre book or book in the day, it’s not difficult to buy on the day, there were no long lines and there are a few boats that do the same thing
