Unfortunately we picked an afternoon where it rained, however the boat still had a great view from the inside. We couldn't be outside near the railing like normal. We got to the line a little late, like 10 min before it was suppose to leave, so needless to say there was a wait line. But the boat can accommodate a lot of people so it was no problem finding a good seat by a window. Audio tour was great as well. Convenient multiple languages, one for me and one for my husband.

Not long wait in the queue, maybe 15 minutes, loads of seats so we could sit wherever we wanted. The cruise went up north east just past Notre-Dame cathedral and back again. Amazing value for money!


5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2017

Be sure to print your ticket!!! Since this runs every hour we picked the last one so we could enjoy the night on the river. It was great! We even brought a bottle of wine to enjoy the ride
