Lovely experience as the sun was setting at 5pm so half the cruise was in the dark meaning the lights of the city looked fabulous. As we arrived back at 6 the tower was sparkling too. Saw all the famous landmarks along the route. The tour was in french and English but we struggled somewhat with the English part due to the sound level and translation. Had to ask for the crepe and didn’t drink in the standard ticket as initially told standard ticket didn’t include. Got it in the end and it was very nice too!

We booked our ticket days before going. We arrived 30 minutes before departure time and there was already a huge line to enter the boat. There was absolutely no benefits in booking in advance. Booking in advance should have benefits like priority boarding or free drink or the best seats. When we boarded, all rooftop seats were full. Thankfully we found some, in the lower deck, in the front of the boat. Other than that, it went smoothly and we enjoyed it very much. Suggestion: They could say the name of the major bridges and monuments throughout the ride or some fun facts about them.

Worth the money. Very relaxing to do on a night after partying, or an evening to see all of the lights. We did in the morning and were glad that we could just sit and relax after a long night. Beautiful views. River was high so we didn't see everything, but still worth it. Champagne on the boat was a fun "when in Paris" picture.
