    On time departure. Pretty though quite cold from top deck. Knowledgable guide though he had to talk fast to explain everything in French first then English. Our cruise came with a drink and snack but the line to get the items were long and moved slowly since there was only one server on board. The cruise time (4:30 pm) allowed us to see the beautifully lit Eiffel against the sunset on the way back - which was great. Deducting one star as this tour operator charges for use of their restroom.

    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.

    I heartily recommend it, boarding the ship right under the Eiffel Tower, easy to find. The queue to the entrance started to set up half an hour before the cruise, so if someone wants to reserve seats at the very front, unfortunately 15 minutes will not be enough. The sunset cruise was very nice, the guide spoke in English. I recommend :)
