The is was a great way to explore Paris via the Seine. The boats arrived on schedule.

This is an excellent way to visit a lot of important sites in Paris, particularly if you don't know the city very well.
Some of the more famous places are a long way apart.
We used it for Notre Dame and the Eiffel Tower, but it also stops at many other places.
The boats were frequent and large. The transparent roof and windows meant you had good views.
It is a simple hop-on-hop-off service. There is no food,toilet or commentary.

This was super convenient for us. We were staying near the Eiffel Tower and could hop on and hop off at all the major attractions. It was nice to see everything from the river and I don't think we ever ended up waiting long for a boat to come. We did the 2 day pass for 2 people and felt that the price was very affordable.

This was just as described, very nice and boats were on the smaller side, but very comfortable.
The only down side was it was hard to get from the train station to and from the sightseeing cruise. We
had no trouble getting there, a tourist bus picked us up, but leaving was another story. It was very
nerve wrecking to figure out how we were going to get back to the train. For the money, this was a
very relaxing and enjoyable way to see the sights. Would definitely do it again.
