The river cruise was excellent. Paris is so cool -- and this tour gives you an interesting perspective. So many interesting people hanging out by the river and having little picnics and parties. Our tour was upgraded to an Eiffel Tower dinner which was awesome! The food was great. The Moulin Rouge is so much fun and this tour came with champagne!
Everything was wonderful! The view of the Eiffel Tower at dinner and the lights, great! Food and service at the restaurant, excellent! River cruise at sunset and the Moulin Rouge, all good. Definitely well worth the price. It really was top of the line! !
Organization of tour was great. Dinner was delicious and location of restaurant is spectacular. On cruise we were sitting inside of boat cause it was raining, but it was realy nice even then. Moulin Rouge is MUST see show when you are in Paris, we had great seats, and show is amazing! Whole tour was great!
the boat ride and Moulin was fantastic . THe dinner at LOs Ombres , although a beatiful settting left a lot to be desired food wise, otherwise it was well worth the money. biggest problem, Viator needs to explain how to get where and what time , not time varies and make sure people know they can be returned and picked up by the co without extra charge. Worth the money
Food was good . But our guide was rushing us to get to the boat and them was not there to pick us up on time. Them we had to wait in line for almost an hour for the show . Then we were picked up by a different driver and he had two other people and we had to drive 20 minute to there hotel before he took us to ours . Not as good of an experience as we would have hoped for considering the cost.
We were unable to have dinner at Les Ombres so it was substituted for dinner at the Cabaret. The dinner was great and the show was excellent. This meant that we were given tickets for the Seine River cruise to use at another time. We had to make our own way to the cruise and back. It worked out well for us, but might not have worked well for someone else. We took the cruise the following evening and it was amazing.
Our night started on a massive high. Easy to find where the tour started and we were driven in a private car by a lovely man to Les Ombres for dinner. The restaurant was nothing short of spectacular. The views were amazing and the food was sensational!!! Service started a little slow but quickly recovered and everyone was lovely. Great choices in the set menu. My only comment was it was a little rushed to then make the river cruise. The venue is highly romantic (which even though I was with my sister I still appreciated it)
The cruise was ok. After such a luxurious dinner it was a little third rate. If I had my time over I'd skip the cruise. Didn't hate it but didn't love it. Highlight was the lady on the cruise who spoke 5 languages. She was funny!
Things deteriorated when we got off the cruise. After being in a lovely private car with another couple we were told to get on a large bus to get us to moulin rouge. No issues with that at all but we we're given instructions to get on a bus with a flashing light. The was none so we got on the bus with our tour company name. The guide on that bus was an absolute jerk. He was so rude, spoke to us poorly when he couldn't find our name on his listthen berated us and the other couple from our original tour as we had not listened and got on the wrong bus. When we tried to explain he kept talking over the top of us. He was truly an awful man and veryvery rude. To have a go at us I front of the rest of the bus was unacceptable. Further to this he then said it didn't matter anyway as we were all going to the Same place. He then proceeded to give the worst guided tour on the way to the moulin rouge. I saw several people on the bus clap when he finally finished talking woeful!!!
I will say it was great skipping the line for the moulin rouge. You cannot prepare yourself for how hectic and busy it all is. Or how long the normal line is. We were pretty tired by then as it was at 11pm show. The show was of course fantastic
Dinner at Les Ombres was very disappointing at best. No choices and we could not eat first course because it was liver pate. It they are going to serve something like that, give a choice at least. The poached chicken was not quite done to our liking. They put us out on terrace facing directly into the sun and would not put up umbrellas to shield from light. Person next to us moved to another table and did not eat his entire dinner. The boat was a mad house and they put us under plastic so you did not get feeling of being outside. The show was delightful. The drivers were nice and efficient
