Very recommended! If one wants a Seine boat tour with maximum privacy, this is it. We got to the dock by bycicle (there's a Vélib' bike rent station nearby). Raphael, our captain, was there right in time. He is a very friendly openminded guy who explained a lot and answered every question we asked. The boat trip starts in the south west of paris near the Île Seguin giving you enough time to spend on the river enjoying the views of the historical buildings. Be sure: Everyone along the river will be jealous seeing you in a classic motor boat enjoying a glass of Rosé wine in the late afternoon sun. Definitly worth it.
The bus ride was super with a very detailed audio, I had a problem getting a bus stop but as soon as i go the local partner on chat they quickly directed me to the next stop and I hoped in, also make sure when you alight you have your 1 hr cruise tickets, i did not pick mine but got them again through the help of the chat services, if you love the Paris night lights take a booking that later in the evening.
We had a great time on the tour with Cedric who was a fantastic guide. It was my first time riding with a child on my back (even though I have been a parent for 16 years) and I had my 2 younger children with me and Cedric was wonderful at adapting the tour to suit us and our situation. He was a wealth of knowledge about Paris and we enjoyed the tour with him.
Our guide Vic was great! She was very knowledgeable, great personality and made learning the different histories of Paris fun! We loved this tour because it was a different experience from the traditional sites. We walked a lot, but we were having so much fun we didn’t mind that.
Great tour. Really informative. Anna was fantastic, loads of colourful stories about the different side of Paris history. Highly recommend if you are looking for something less touristy.
