Okay so I don't care who says what but if you are looking to get the best views of the Eiffel Tower and Paris during your short stay then this boat trip is a must. You don't get any food but you get seats and if you sit in the upper deck then you get the best view. Make sure you go during sunset and good weather.

Lovely way to end a very busy day of sightseeing. Calm beautiful, well organised and very easy to find the correct pontoon as they are all very clearly marked. We really appreciated the flexibility to go when we wanted and the ability to go at 10:30 when it looked like most others had stopped.

Fun way to experience Paris through a different perspective. I would recommend booking this cruise earlier in your tour as a way to orient to all the major landmarks. There is an audio guide which we didn't download but something to look into if you're interested. Overall very fun and relaxing experience. Definitely go early for good seats on the upper deck
