This is a great way to get two checks in the block for a better price than separately. The shuttle/van service is great and recommend this event be early in your trip to see the lay of the land early. Cruise food and atmosphere were good, but be for-warned; water was 9 euro and a decent bottle of wine was at least 35, Since only one small glass is included. Overall, that part was a solid four with the only knock being the add-on expenses.
Moulin Rouge was a rip-off. My girl really wanted to see it, but they put you at these tiny tables with half the seating not facing the stage! I am an averaged-size man 6' 200lbs, and I felt like being squeezed in the back seat of a minivan having to turnaround to watch. The balancing acts and small skits were cool, but the basic show was like taller HS cheerleaders performing silly dancing skits, some singing, fancy outfits and routinely no tops for the women. If you don't know French, you will get nothing out of the singing. We had no beverage service during the show either. The show gives off that kind of Vegas vibe, but only a few of them would be able to make it there.
We left slightly after half the show to grab drinks across the street just to get out of that seating arrangement. It gets a two (barely), women will like the pics, gift shop, and allure; but it is a poor value, terrible performance set-up for spectators, and a marginal product. I would be hesitant to go again even if the tickets were given to me.
Very good tour which includes access to the first floor on top of the restaurant away from the crowds. Not waiting in the crazy lines makes the tour worth it!
