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 guide was friendly and helpful. She met us at a local restaurant and walked us to the tower and past security, which saved time. She answered questions, made suggestions to go to the summit first, and explained some of the history behind the tower. Great experience!
Just got back to our hotel after a relaxing two and a half hour trip on the river . Raphaël is an excellent host for the private boat trip, very accommodating and knowledgable. He Speaks excellent English, and has a lovely boat !
From the meeting point to access to the Eiffel Tower was well coordinated. It was quick and we were placed in front of the crowds. We had an excellent time.
This was money well spent. The guide walked us to the priority access area and shared some brief history about the tower.
