FEATURED REVIEW(S)

4.5/5 stars – based on 1730 reviews


Seeing the city from a different perspective was wonderful. Before you know it, the hour is up. There is an open and a closed deck. You couldn’t choose a time when making the reservation, but that wasn’t a problem because you can plan this individually within the booked day. We arrived and were quickly on the boat and then we set off straight away. Since we are not at Notre Dame due to the renovation work, we were able to view it from the outside from the boat. Really recommended!!

Nice way to see some of Paris’ important buildings from the water. A beautiful experience, especially in the evening. There is a covered area, but you can also sit on the deck. This is cold in winter, but gives a nice way to see it best.
