FEATURED REVIEW(S)

4.4/5 stars – based on 2048 reviews


It was a great experience. I loved that the tour was translated in many languages. The best part was that we could choose the time we wanted to go on the cruise. We chose the late evening and got to see the Eiffel Tower all lit up.
Lorena – United States


It was a very good and worthwhile way to see the sights of Paris. I would have given 5 stars but on our cruise there some very noisy children which hampered the commentary
Stewart – United Kingdom


We started cruising at 9.30 PM, just in time to see Eiffel lights when we got back. View was amazing, everything was as scheduled.
