Bateaux Parisiens Seine River Cruise with Lunch and Live Music

Paris, France

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

2 hours of great food, lovely singer, excellent "lazy" sightseeing option. Come hungry, you will need room for a fabulous lunch, that will keep you full for most of the day. We did the most expensive option, and were not disappointed by the front of the boat's luxurious seating, great menu options, champagne aperitif and 2 bottles of wine included with our tickets. There is a bit of a service scuffle at the beginning, as the waiters were trying to get everyone's orders, which is understandable given fixed time and small space. But once that was out of the way, it was relaxed and smooth sailing. The middle and back of the boat, which we passed on our way to the table, is heavily packed with the large tour groups. So if you have a little splurge built into your budget, and want more personal, quiet, and/or romantic experience, definitely upgrade to the front.
Our kids loved the tour as well. This is our third time in Paris, so we were looking at different activities. The Paris' Statue of Liberty is best seen from this river tour, with Eiffel tower in the background, and the singer performing "...it's up to you, New York, New York!" As far as other sights, for the first-time in the city, they are better explored from the street. But don't get me wrong, this tour isn't disappointing. I bet the dinner cruise is pretty nice, too. Go for it.

Romantic Horse and Carriage Ride through Paris

Paris, France

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
THis was the best idea - an hour and a half ride through Paris's main streets, with our little son (20 mo) and a couple of friends. Champagne was delicious, and people everywhere were good-jealous of us, taking pictures as we cheered and toasted to the double-decker busses and everyone on the streets. The carriage was comfortable for 4 and a half people, but I wouldn't suggest more per ride. No, it does not smell like horse or poo during the ride. The lady driving us was extremely nice, and took great photos, and was informative. The ride was romantic, interesting, and all-around great fun. Not too many people do this, and it is a bit pricey, but - hey - for us it was worth the bucks. We had an experience we won't forget, just leisurely riding trhrough a great city. We booked advanced tickets to go up the Eifel tower too, and the ride starts and ends there, so we were back in time to reflect on the fun we just had and go up the Tower for more. HIGHLY recommend. Booking through VIATOR was a breeze as well.
