      Big Bang for low bucks

      (Late March) after Louvre booked with my phone while walking towards Pont Neuf ( historic bridge), 45 minutes later we were on a sunset cruise on the Seine with our family of 4 adults. Excellent guide in English and French. Great location with close dinner spots for after. Good way to see major sights in short amount of time. Great value for what you get to see!
      A good introduction to the sights of Paris

      My wife and I booked this trip as part of our wedding anniversary celebration in Paris. It’s a great way to see some of the key sites and the commentary was excellent. The only disappointment was the lack of information on the operator’s web site - it just said every half hour and didn’t say that this was reduced on Sundays, which meant we had a long wait for a boat.
      Wonderful way to spend an evening!

      We take a night boat tour every time we come to Paris. We almost skipped it this trip but decided at the last minute to do it. It was great. Easy boarding, great seating, not overly crowded and located right beside the bridge for easy access to public transport and taxi stations. As we left we agreed it was the best night tour we had ever taken in Paris. I’d definitely recommend.

      Nice view and extended river tour then expected. Tour guide was entertaining. Tour guide dressed the part. Love the fake mustache.
      The perfect date
      Lamarr_N, Jan 2023
      An amazing trip along the beautiful Seine in Paris with the love of my life. The views were amazing and the tour guide was the perfect balance of knowledge and humour
      Worth it!
      Tori_b, Jan 2023

      FELIPE_P, Jan 2023
      Very good experience, nice boat and crew. But the system wasn’t scanning the QR code, showing a red mark etc, Despite of that, they let us in. It is an unforgettable experience.

      We were not able make this trip to due to the rail strike in UK/Eurostar. Our train to Paris on January 4, 2023 got canceled due to the rail strike in UK. We were tourists from USA and was was visiting UK for only for 6 days. We would be grateful if you could return our money back. Thanks.

      Bonjour, Nous sommes désolés que vous n'ayez pas pu vivre cette croisière, à cause des grèves en UK. Mais nous ne pouvons pas rembourser une croisière que vous n'avez pas pu effectuer à cause d' un no show
      Not worth it

      The tour runs between 10:45 AM - 10:00 PM, and we reached the spot at 6.55pm on Dec 24th. Strangely the office was closed and the tour operator instructed us to come back on December 26th. When we went back on 26th they did not allow us to use the tickets. So we requested a refund. Viator (as usual) rejects our refund request and we receive an email from the tour operator stating we can use these tickets within the next year. Really? Do you expect us to travel to Paris for taking Seine River Cruise? Still trying to get a refund….
      Response from Host, Jan 2023
      Good Evening, We apologize for this malfunction concerning our partner Les Vedettes du Pont Neuf. Indeed during this winter period we have many fewer cruises and I do not understand why you are refused to do the cruise on December 26 because the ticket is valid for one year. We apologize for this malfunction.

      sofia_c, Dec 2022
      We got scammed. There was no cruise. It said it was from 10am to 10pm, we showed up at 8:30pm and no one was there.
      Response from Host, Jan 2023
      Good morning, We apologize for the malfunction with our partner Les Vedette du Pont Neuf. It is true that during the winter season we have fewer cruises and the last one was cancelled due to a lack of participants. Again our apologies
      Do this on your day trip to Paris and skip the rest!
      Joseph_B, Dec 2022
      Great guide and got to see the highlights of Paris without being surrounded by massive crowds of people.
      Nice boat tour.
      Ricardo_G, Dec 2022
      It was not possible to understand the guide. It would be better to do a good record and just play it. Overall, it is a good way of having an overview of the city with a beautiful perspective.
      Bhaskaran_S, Dec 2022
      Just missed the morning trip. Been told the next service at 2.45 pm. Wasn't aware there were only limited services. Total waist of money.
      Not worth it
      Meagan_N, Nov 2022
      I would give this a zero star rating if i could. First, the url that was provided for the company was not a clickable link which made it very hard to navigate to the website. Then after we manually entered in the url to the company website the night before our excursion, it said the cruise left at 9:45pm. Then the day of, they changed it to 9:15pm without us knowing. It really doesn't make sense why the time was changed and we lost out our money because the 9:15 cruise was the last one for the night.

      The boat ride was pretty and it was nice to see things from the water. The guide technically spoke English but he spoke ridiculously fast and you couldn't understand him.
      Great sailing to do during sunset
      Mari_M, Nov 2022
      I suggest doing it around sunset to see the sunset hit the monuments and also see the lights turn on. In Nov ever that would be the 4:30 ride. It was beautiful sunset hitting the water and Eiffel Tower
      It was value for money...
      Sharon_B, Nov 2022
      It was value for money and very enjoyable. Only slightly spoiled by noisy school children who drowned out the guide. Also he spoke too fast. Otherwise it was well worth it.
      Worth every penny
      Xola_M, Nov 2022
      Really worth the fee and a bucket list attraction in Paris. A great way so see some of the monuments in the city and see parts of Paris less advertised.
      Didn't get on the boat-No directions of pick up location
      Denise_W, Nov 2022
      This is very misleading. Vedettes is in two places. Vedettes Paris and Vedettes du Pont Neuf. I never made it on the trip, as we went to Vedettes Paris. So I bought tickets all over again. It doesn't say on the ticket where the boat is located, so be sure you want the boat by Notre Dam and not by the Eiffel Tower. Very confusing.
      A lovely experience not to be missed
      Richard_B, Nov 2022
      Wonderful scenery and commentary. The guide was brilliant speaking in French & English. Many lovely stories behind the landmark sights. The weather was also superb.
