Not happy! Not tickets - vouchers!
Jemma_D
, Aug 2022
We really enjoyed the Cruise itself once we were finally able to get access! The “tickets” sent by Viator were not accepted. We had queued for two boats before we discover this, and then spend almost half an hour at the office trying to solve the problem with the “vouchers” to get tickets! It was not clear on the Viator communications - it even invites you to “download” for “tickets” - there is no use of the word “vouchers” and no instruction to need a ticket!

Very hot weather too hot on boat as family had to get off after 20mins my kids were burning. I thought the boat would of been more open and plastic seats in the heat sticking to my legs and so uncomfortable 🙃

It was a nice ride however I won't consider them as a cruise. It's basically a fast way of transportation.

A wonderful way to see Paris and all the main sights. Being able to hop-on and hop-off gives you such great flexibility.

Going at our leisure to see the stops that interested us. Staff were polite, efficient and the boats were clean. No concerns at all, would do it again in the future and highly recommended it.

Did not enjoy this at all. Hard to see much outside. Expected a boat that we would be able to see the City and take pictures but with the enclosed boat it was hard to see.

Great cruise with a good number of stops near the main attractions. Friendly, bilingual and professional staff, with safety at heart. Could do with access to bottled water for hot days.

Hop on off Paris boat tour
Jodi_G
, Aug 2022
A great way to see the city, and apparently everyone agrees because the boats are very crowded. We were lucky enough to stand outside the main cabin to avoid crowds but outside space is quite limited. If you purchase a 2- day pass, take screenshot of tickets on day 1 because our tickets were no longer accessible for day 2 on the Viator app. Boat crews were all friendly and professional.

Great idea, not quite what I wanted.
Roberta_H
, Aug 2022
We really liked the idea of making our way down the Seine River through Paris. It wasn't quite what we expected though. The boat was packed with people and is mostly enclosed. We went on a hot day and it was super steamy and the ride seemed to move really slow. The only place to go out was on the back of the boat and it was full. It was not as convenient as we thought getting to Notre Dame and the sights.

Ehhh...no commentary during cruise. They could provide pre-recorded tapes...once off transportation is extremely difficult to find close by and no one seems to know.

Just a water taxi; no commentary

It's just a water taxi. No commentary. The tube is much faster and cheaper. But you do get some nice views from the ricer. The experience was fine, the staff was good but not enough value for me to use again.

Beautiful Paris city boat 🚤 tour ☀️☀️🤩, It was fantastic weather on that day , sunny 🌞 and just relaxing sightseeing , only thing with this boat not possible to buy drinks, and note no toilet. But otherwise u can hop on & off different locations, it stops on most tourist attractions, so it can be easier transportation to some of the Museums fx. We got off at Louvre

Really easy to locate on/off stops, staff were really helpful and booking was easy. 2 day pass is great value and was able to get easily around major sites. It was nice and cool on the river, so it’s a great way to see Paris in the summer.
