The guide very friendly. Keep in mind that the explanation is in French and English, not in Spanish. But if you know a bit of one of the two languages, it's easy to understand. The boat is very nice, you can be outside or on top and you can move during the trip. I recommend it to those people who want to see Paris in a short time since with one hour you can see from the Eiffel Tower to Notre-Dame etc etc. amazing.

Had a really great experience with this cruise. the guide explained really clearly of the places along the river banks. I would recommend that you sit at the top to get the best view of the scenery especially of the Eiffel tower

Remember that the pass starts when you first use it....we picked it up on a Tuesday and were able to active and start the pass with a timed ticket at the Louvre at 9 the next morning......

Was able to go to many museums in less time due to skip the line. Don't forget to make timed enterabce ticket prior to arrival at a few of the museums that require it.

If the museum pass can be obtained electronically instead of picking up in a physical location, that would be more convenient.
