I booked this cruise as a way to add some elegant sparkle to my friend's hen do. And we weren't disappointed. We never had an empty glass, the sun was shining, the views were great...and having a handsome sommelier was the icing on the cake!
We had a fabulous time. The guide was very entertaining, and we learned a lot about champagne and about Paris.

We were the only couple on this tour and had the area set aside at the front of the boat totally to ourselves. The sommelier was a very interesting host, and the champagne was excellent!
The person who had the winetasting spoke great English.
We recommend this!
This was a great way to spend some time and see the city from a unique perspective.
Lots of champagne, and it was a very relaxing boat ride, the perfect pre drink start to a warm Paris evening!
Lovely to see the city from the river. The Champagne was nice, the first was by far the best. They were not forth coming in refilling glasses however if you asked for a top up they did. The wine glasses are about as big as a thimble be warned!
Although the girl at the ticket booth had no idea what to do with my voucher from VIATOR, it clearly stated "Champagne Tasting" so when I pressed, they honored it. The criuse was great and the champagne with commentary was terrific!
Loved the cruise and seeing Paris from a different view, Our guide was fun and gave us the info on the champagne regions..the champagne was not the highlight of the cruise, though.
The champagne was great and the host was even better. The one drawback was that the boat was not easily identified and there was confusion about what ship to board
This was an excellent way to end our trip. The host was very informative. Even in the rain we got good pictures and super memories!
The champagne was great, the server was fine, but could have used some munchies like pretzels
The trip itself was very good, great views of the city and a guide who informed us about the champagne and the city. Plenty of champagne for the whole of the cruise. Only problem was that our names were not on the list when we arrived to board the boat. It mean't waiting for twenty minutes to see if we would actually be allowed on. This seemed very strange as I had booked this about 6 weeks prior to actually going. Better communication required between viator and the actual tour operator.
The cruise itself was fantastic. Lots of champagne, a knowledgeable and friendly host and a good opportunity to see Paris from the Seine. The only problem was dealing with the ticket office at the pier. We expected the cruise to start at 6.00pm but found when we arrived that it didn't start until 6.30pm. We were told that it always starts at 6.30pm and they tell everyone to come at 6.00pm to 'avoid latecomers'. We had arrived in plenty of time so we felt some of our valuable Paris time had been wasted. Other than that, we would highly recommend this cruise - but don't bother getting there until 6.15pm!
