Traveler Tips

The 6pm cruise time is the ideal time to see the city especially Eiffel Tower.
If you can, get a pizza from here because it is delicious!
I highly recommend this cruise in the evening to see many sites from the water.

The Eiffel Tower and Champagne on the Seine!
Wendy_C, Nov 2022
Our sommelier was so much fun and so knowledgeable. It was our first night in Paris and it set the tone for an amazing trip. It was the best way to see everything from the Seine and to learn about and taste some amazing Champagne!!

Perfect tour for our first day in Paris.
Casey_C, Oct 2022
We took this tour right after we arrived in Paris. We were all tired from travel. This was a perfect way to see some sites of Paris in a relaxed setting.
Beautiful experience!
Scott_J, Mar 2022
Lovely and educational. I think all four of us were impressed with the beautiful views at sunset, as well as the warm and personable lesson on Champagne. The Champagnes themselves were tasty and the pours were generous. Especially fun was showing us the sword technique for opening a bottle. The only critique I have is that instructions on where to go (where on the vedettes de Paris / porte de sufferen we were supposed to go) was too vague and there were no instructions on what to do when we got there. Luckily it worked out, but a moment of panic hit when we weren't sure what to to do and we thought we might miss the boat. Otherwise, excellent experience.

Best way to tour Paris
Anna_F, Nov 2022
Excellent time! The best way to tour Paris is on the seine with a glass of champagne in your hand. I definitely recommend!
The champagne one a boat...
Suzanne_W, Nov 2022
The champagne one a boat at night in winter was cosy and seeing the buildings all light up. The guide was very friendly hit at times his voice didnt travel to my ears over the engine and the french guide and his megaphone in the remainder of the boat.
Cruise was wonderful. :-)...
lrooney, Oct 2022
Cruise was wonderful. :-) I would say after experiencing wonderful champagne in Paris the actual selection was mediocre at best.
Nice intro to Paris
Nancy_H, Sep 2022
Nice introduction to Paris on our first night. The champagne was a bonus, although 3 glasses of champagne in an hour is a little rushed.

Delicious champagne & beautiful sites along the river
Ashley_S, Aug 2022
The champagne was delicious and very generous with their pours! The river cruise was also gorgeous and a great way to see the sites. It is hot and uncovered so bring your sunscreen!

marta_f, Jul 2022
Great experience. We had a great time. Champagne was amazing and the cruise was gorgeous. I’ll do it again next time I’m in Paris.
Perfect way to experience Paris with a little luxury!
Louise_B, Jul 2022
We cannot recommend this trip highly enough! We tasted three incredible champagnes with Paul, or expert sommelier, and were treated to some interesting facts not only about the champagne we were drinking, but about the sights along the Seine as well. Was a thoroughly enjoyable, relaxing hour and a great way to kick off our trip to Paris. We plan to return and repeat this trip later this year!

dalia_m, May 2022
What a great way to kick off our stay in Paris! A semi private boat ride around the Seine with champagne! We meet several people and had a blast as we got to view Paris from the river! Champagne was delicious! Wish there would have been someone to point out the various sights to us… but it was a lot of fun!

Paul was our sommelier and he was absolutely amazing. Knew a lot about all of the champagnes we were drinking and a lot about the area if you had any questions! He was very easy to talk to as well which made it even better! I would highly recommend this tour to anybody who loves champagne or even just loves paris.

Great way to kick of a trip to Paris
Rachel_N, Dec 2021
A really special start to a great trip to Paris. The host was charming and very knowledgeable. The champagnes were all interesting and amazing choices. We learned a lot, got to cruise down the Seine with friends, and toast! Would highly recommend.
Response from Host, Dec 2021
Thank you for this kind review Rachel !
Great Experience!
kristenlorow, Oct 2019
We have visited Paris many times and we were stopping through on our honeymoon just for 2 days and one night and this was recommended to us by a fellow traveler. I would recommend the Champagne tasting tour whether it's your first time or if you've been to Paris before. It's always a treat to see Paris from the river and our Somm was so knowledgable about the city as well as the Champagne. You also get the very front of the boat with the best view and it's inside so you don't have to worry about the cooler months- although you can walk outside if you would like to take pictures or enjoy the view.
Wonderful time and great crew
ANGELA_D, Sep 2019
The cruise was lovely - a private, small group in the front of the boat with option to be covered or outdoors. The sommelier/gide was very knowledgeable and can make the explanation of the champagne as simple or as detailed as you needed. She also spoke great English and pointed out features of Paris along the cruise. It was a great kickoff to our stay in Paris as we were able to get our bearing on the city layout and plan our future options. The reason why I am posting this review though is to thank the crew as we would have missed the boat (and the $200 we paid) without their help. We arrived in Paris earlier that day and made the mistake of taking a nap before the tour and arrived to the ticket booth late. We were at the back of the line and not sure really what we even needed to do and we could see the boat was leaving any minute. Someone on the boat staff came to the ticket line and asked for us by name and then took us to the front of the line and escorted us through the process to get the tickets and board the boat. Without her help, we would have never made it and would have missed out on a great start to our trip. We were so appreciative of them taking that extra step to find us and help us even through we were late. They could have left without us and we would have totally understood. Thank you!!
