Seine River Cruise and Paris Illuminations by Minivan

Paris, France

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review
Four of us were picked up at the hotel right on time by a very nice Frenchman who spoke perfect English. We had 2 other passengers from Brazil in the minivan & he was able to speak with them in what I believe was Portuguese. He drove us directly to the Cruise boat, which was a large, wide boat with large windows for viewing and fairly comfortable seating. We ewre able to get on the boat fairly quickly and not have to wait in line, which was great for my slightly disabled husband! An astounding cruise down the Seine followed.....seeing all the beautiful buildings and monuments lit at night!!! As we were leaving the dock, which was near the Eiffel Tower, the Tower began to sparkle with thousands of tiny lights!! It was a complete surprise to us, but evidently this happens every hour at night and it was absolutely beautiful. Once the cruise was completed (a little more than 30 minutes), we got off the boat to meet our driver and to collect our photos which they took of us as we got on the boat.(A nice memento that was not too expensive.) He was prompt and took us in the minivan tor a drive around Paris at night along with 2 more passengers. Here is the part where I was not satisfied with.....while there was seating for 8, it was very crowded in the back seat, where I was squashed in the middle, and could not see a lot of what there was to see. My suggestion for this tour is to take only 7 in the minivan, which would be more comfortable & better viewing for all. All in all, this was a convenient way to get to the boat and then to see Paris at night with no hassles getting to and from the cruise and back to our hotel. Just be sure that you are not the one in the middle in the back seat!

London Eye: Skip the Line Tickets

London, United Kingdom

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
Wow! This was phenomenal! Every visitor to London must go on the London Eye! An astounding engineering feat and you can see forever from the top of the London Eye. A very different way to see London and we loved it. Paying in advance for a fast track ticket, although costly, was well worth the price. Just be sure you go into the large building at the right to redeem your Viator receipt. Once you enter turn to your left and walk to the end of the building...then to your right and get in the correct line to redeem your ticket. We stood in the wrong line for awhile until the clerk told me exactly where to go. Be sure that you tell the clerk that you want your free book about The London Eye...(it shows on your Viator receipt that you get one free with each ticket). They sell them for several Pounds. The girl that took my receipt did not quite understand the free book thing, until I showed her what it said on the Viator receipt. After that, it is a piece of cake to get on the Eye and we got into the short line and within 5 minutes we were on The Eye!
