This was the best thing on our trip! There was plenty of champagne, the weather was great, we had a smaller sunny area away from the rest of the tourists on the boat and just had an absolutely great time. I'd strongly recommend it!

I'm not sure what was better, the champagne or the cruise. Sipping good champagne on the Seine is even better. Thanks for the cruise.
This was a brilliant way to spend Valentine's Day, we really enjoyed the trip.
This was well worth the money, not only did we taste the champagne but we where given a talk on the history and making of champagne which was very interesting. My only criticism would be that the pre recorded commentary was playing in the back ground so it was a bit difficult to hear the person doing the champagne bit.
It was great. Both me and my mother had a great time, and the tour guide was brilliant as he was able to speak French and English! He was very nice.
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!
Great cruise - host was informative but also very relaxed and could have some fun. Great champagne and you get to see a lot of Paris from the comfort of an air conditioned boat! We would just recommend the boat company put a sign on the entrance to the private room area - we had many other passengers constantly coming in to the room not realising it was a private area. This meant our host was constantly interrupted having to ask people to leave. A simple sign on the curtains of both entrances would have solved this problem.
The boat trip was fantastic, providing great views of historic Paris. The host was very nice, but it was difficult to hear him at times as he was addressing guests inside and outside of the cabin simultaneously. There could have been more detailed descriptions of the champagnes themselves, but may have missed some of the commentary due to the set up and competing with the captain's announcements to the rest of the non-tour folks on the rest of the boat. The champagne was tasty, but expect about an ounce pour for each offering.
The company that run this tour need to learn a bit more about customer service. Because it was raining, the upper deck could not be used and when I arrived, I was told there was not room unless I wanted to stand. When I got on the boat, the bar tender said "You have a champagne tasting ticket, there is an area up the front of the boat"! This private area holds about 20 - 30 people and you have a personal semelliare to pour and explain about 3 - 4 different Champagnes and he was very entertaining as well. The cruise goes up and around Notre Dame and back.
Tour was enjoyable. Got to see some of the sites in Paris from a different perspective from the river, while enjoying a few glasses of Champagne. Lasted about an hour, which seemed just about right.
Boat is docked near the Eiffel Tower, which we went on to visit after the cruise.
We had a great time on this tour. Participants are welcomed at the front of the boat and can choose inside or outside. Views are spectacular.
The tasting consisted of three champagnes. The last two were excellent. The sommelier was very knowledgable.
The Seine River Cruise was nice. My family and I enjoyed seeing and hearing about the places along the river.
Informative and good quality Champagnes. Magical arriving back at the Eiffel Tower as the lights twinkled.
The boat tour and the champagne tasting is really worth it! but the view was not good all the time because other tourists on the normal boat tour were taking pictures on the reserved area for the champagne tasting tour!
Tour was a wonderful way to start our stay in Paris. The host was very entertaining. The champagne was excellent. The cruise with the champagne adds that special touch if this something you are looking for.
Our hostess Charlotte was a lovely good natured girl. The champange was delicious and I'm glad we "adults" were separated from the family groups.
Viator was recommended by some friends recently in Paris and I would definately recommend you and do it again.
Very enjoyable tour sightseeing on the Seine while tasting champagne - would highly recommend.
I highly recommend this memorable 1 hour cruise down the river. We had a knowledgable sommelier , Lionel who also explained the three different champagnes to us during the tasting.
Make sure you print the voucher we were given a difficult time at the ticket entrance with an online voucher.
both fun and very informative all while tasting champagne while sightseeing on the Seine.
The person who had the winetasting spoke great English.
We recommend this!
