We really enjoyed this tour. The guide Elizabeth was interesting to listen to, and the scenery was amazing, of course. The tunnel was fantastic. It is a pretty slow trip up the canal through the locks, be prepared to just sit for a while. We had a lovely lunch at a local restaurant, where no english was spoken (fabulous!) before using the metro to return to the centre of Paris.
Excellent and interesting trip. Great commentary and well worth the time and price.
This was a great tour. Very informative and scenic. A lot of fun!
Smooth and easy. Simply handed the voucher to the cruise operator and that was that.
This was a highlight of our short Paris stay. We had an excellent guide. The unique travel on the canal through eight "locks" and experiencing Paris neighborhoods by canal boat was spectacular. We highly recommend this tour as part of your seeing "the city of lights."
The tour was great, the tour guide's english was a bit difficult to understand. The tour through the locks was a little boring for me. All in all, I wish I would have taken the traditional Seine River cruise. I would recommend this cruise and it was good.
Because we had been to Paris before and had seen the usual touristy things I decided to do the canal tour through Paris. It started on the Seine and we entered St Martins Canal from there and travelled to the outer suburbs of Paris passing through many locks. This Canal was ordered by Napoleon and was set up to carry water and goods into Paris and so is very old. It was a reaxing half day and we saw a different side of Paris. My husband loved it!
Very informative, totally enjoyable. we saw a section of Paris we did not know existed.
I make it to Paris to visit my brother Once, maybe twice a year. I've seen the sights and am always looking for something new to explore. Bored with the regular cruises on the Seine, I booked this canal cruise - who knew there were canals? _ and had a wonderful 2 1/2 hour tour of the lock system (the tunnel was cool - literally and figuratively). Ending at the Parc de la Villette a was a surprise (http://www.villette.com/fr/ ) and so was the wonderful Science and Technology museum (http://www.cite-sciences.fr/en/cite-des-sciences ) . Loved the Planetarium!
A quick walk to one of two Metro stations and I was back at my brother's in the 14th in minutes. A great way to spend a day...and very reasonably priced also!
