Great tour, just think that if wheather is chill you might need good jacket, gloves and hat. If hot: sun glasses… it was really nice and the guide very friendly. Would recommend anyone to do it at any time. The boat is completely open and you have an impressive view from there of the city

The guide was very nice and the weather was perfect. We had a nice tour and he explained the buildings along the river to us. Personally, I would have liked a little more information about the history of Strasbourg, but that's probably a matter of taste. In general, we thought the tour was a success and would do it again.

Excellent experience to see the city and its surrounds from a different perspective. The 2hr option is the way to go, and there's a short stop to grab drinks (you stay in the boat). Perfect addition to a day in Strasbourg, and for a special occasion... I took the opportunity to get engaged, and our guide Jerome played a great part in photographing it all while still giving us our personal space.
