Was a rainy evening, but beautiful cruise. I had originally booked for a Friday, but they kindly let me change the date, as I was in this area on the Thursday.

This was a lovely trip. Our instructions to find the rendezvous were clear, and local signage was good. We used the voucher to get our tickets and had a short wait in line to board the boat. The boat was quite crowded, but we manage to get our inclusive drinks easily and managed to get photos of everything we wanted to. We went later in the evening so that we could see Paris lit up.....the Eiffel Tower is stunning and twinkles every hour! The commentary was very thorough and informative and it was a nice change not to have to wear earphones! All in all, I would thoroughly recommend this tour.
