Enjoyable and good value. Louis was very knowledgeable and welcoming. The 'tasters' were very generous.
Great experience! A nice way to start the evening. Forget the name of the expert but he was knowledgeable and friendly. It was very relaxing, and the champagne selections were nice. Enjoyed it because it was a a good way to relax after a long day if sightseeing. Highly recommend!
Louie was a great guide. Tons of champagne. Only criticism is that the front of the boat was not closed off so other passengers who were not on e tour were in front- sometimes they would come into the cabin and mistook the champagne for compimentary... Excellent way to take a generalized tour down the river!
Louie was a great host and great knowledge if the champagnes we tasted! It was a lot of fun!!
What a way to start a holiday in Paris. This 1 hour trip is worth every cent. The sommelier, Louie, is funny, knowledgeable and generous. There are 3 champagnes to try (none of the fake bubblies!) and they are lesser know names, but delicious. Our glasses never seemed to be empty.
Louie also gives a commentary on sights to see from the boat. By the way, the boat has regular, non drinking visitors as well, but you get the whole front of the boat to yourself......no distractions!
Highly recommended for the romantically inclined and the keen imbiber.
We did this our first night in Paris and it was perfect! Our somm was very entertaining and kept the champagne free flowing. We learned a bit about the sights we passed by as well. A great way to see the city and get a feel for Paris!
We had to reschedule our cruise to the 7th of August due to cancellation of the cruise on 4th of Aug. Despite the heavy rain prior to start of the cruise we had a good time on board. Had a good view of Paris from the river Sienne. Highly recommend this cruise ...the champagne tasting adds a difference to the experience rather than the normal cruise we see on the river. There were small crowd at this section and more personalised.
LOVED this tour... The weather was perfect and our guide and Sommelier, Pierre, was very knowledgeable - about the champagne and the sights. Highly recommend as a relaxing way to end the day, or a nice transition into the dinner hour.
Despite the rain, this trip was memorable. The directions to get to the dock were not as clear as I thought and we almost missed the boat! However, once aboard, the champagne tasting portion of the boat was well prepared and comfortable. The sommelier was knowledgeable and kind. He was generous in his pours and provided a nice variety of champagnes.
The audio was somewhat difficult to hear and was even more difficult given the sommelier's talk about the wine. Perhaps a hand out about the sites would be helpful.
An added bonus for this tour - my fiancee proposed to me halfway through the tour! So, I have to give this tour a four stars because I will never forget the experience!
Amazing tour with the most amazing guide. Bought for my boyfriend as a birthday present and it was absolutely perfect! Definitely recommended.
A great short tour to see the sites of Paris from the river while sipping three refreshing champagnes. Our guide/sommelier was wonderful - very knowledgable, very friendly and took plenty of pics for us! This was a great break between all the walking and sight seeing we did. Also a great way to prepare for an evening in Paris. Highly recommended!
This was the first thing I did with my husband once we landed in Paris. It was so relaxing to be on the boat after flying for nearly 8 hours. We were given plenty of champagne in a private area at the front of the boat. You are able to walk outside to feel the breeze and take pictures. This was a great introduction to Paris as you are able to see all of the major sites along the Seine. We had a better sense of the layout of Paris and knew what we wanted to see the next day. Our "guide" was very knowledgeable about the champagne and would keep us informed about the sites we were seeing as we passed by.
We went on this cruise because it was my brother in law's 40 th birthday, and we had a ball!!!! The tour guide was fabulous and kept the champagne flowing...... Was really knowledgable about Paris and was very happy to take photos!!!! Loved it would recommend it!!!!
I booked this cruise for my boyfriends birthday.. we had just arrived in Paris and the cruise was so relaxing after the flight. we had a private room at the front of the boat- our champagne expert Justin was brilliant, very knowledgable and eager to answer any questions. we tried 3 champagnes (two white and one rose) and got an extra glass easch of the majority favourite as there wasnt many people on the cruise. The boat left at 6pm which meant we saw the sunset in Paris and the Eiffel tower sparkle when we arrived back to dock - it was magical! i highly recommend this trip, it was the perfect beginning to our weekend.
Pierre was a fantastic guide. Very knowledgable about the different champagnes but provided plenty of time to simply enjoy and take in the sites. All of the champagnes were delicious. We ended up having 4+ glasses in just over an hour. Boat is very nice and the water calm - those who worry about motion sickness should be just fine.
Excellent...,great host, great champagne and a wonderful time, can't wait to go again!
Perfect beginning to our Paris visit. On our return Paris was lit up and we got some extra Champagne
We undertook this tour on our arrival night in Paris, although jetlagged we thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Easy to find ticket office and no problems presenting the voucher. Plenty of champers, lots of explanation of the products and Pierre was very helpful and answered our questions. The views along the river at sunset are stunning. Only criticism would be the hard plastic picnic chairs but we are free to move around the boat. Overall a very good night.
Such a lovely way to see the sights!!!!!!!! Highly recommended and you learn whilst enjoying some lovely champagne.
We arrived in Paris on the same afternoon as our tour was booked and were running late, we actually only arrived at the boat 5 minutes before the departure time. The staff were extremely friendly, immediately found our booking just by our name and saw us straight onto the boat.
The boat was very nice, it looked pretty new and it was lovely to have our own private room and deck (for the group) at the front. Our host (I think Charlotte) was really nice and knowledgeable, it was our 15th Wedding Anniversary and I have to say this was one of the highlights of our weekend trip. There were only about 15 people on the tour so plenty of Champagne all round. It was nice to stand and chat to everyone in a very relaxed atmosphere.
We would HIGHLY recommend this experience and will definitely be doing it again ourselves.
This river cruise saved our entire Paris experience! The wine, guide, and views were perfect. This took an incredibly stressful day and slowed things down to almost a crawl. It was exactly what we needed and a very romantic experience to be had.
Absolutely wonderful. Would recommend to anyone. The sommelier was top notch!
