The river cruise was great, a really good way to see Paris lit up at night. The only downside was that we couldn't get a seat on the top deck so the visibility wasn't as good but other than that the views were beautiful. The crepes were really good as well!
This tour was well worth it. Our tour guide Niamh was really engaging and fun and gave us a great history of the Eiffel Tower and all the surrounding museums and monuments in Paris. We were also left to do our own thing for a while as well which was good. I would highly recommend this to anyone wanting a snapshot of the history behind Paris while being able to skip the long queues to get in and see the whole of Paris from the top of the Eiffel Tower. I would also really recommend going up at night, or going up as it turns dark. We went up at 5:30pm so by the time we were coming back down it had got dark, the twinkling lights came on and the view of it from the ground was stunning.
