The second time I have taken this tour in six months. This time we commenced in Paris central and ended at this Parc. The boat was crowded and as the weather wasn't perfect it was difficult to hear the guide as passengers were talking a lot and not interested in the commentary. Still a great way to see the canals and locks and I would certainly recommend this tour.Reviewed by: Nanny of the Wetwipes, Australia, June 2013
Very interesting the Canal S-Martin with the locks and anecdotes and historical facts at each one. The guide did a good job, in English and French. Of course, had beautiful sunny day!Reviewed by: annejuneau, June 2013
A great trip - very interesting going through all the locks down to the Seine - very pretty bridges, and seeing a lot of Paris which tourists do not generally see. Then out into the Seine and round the Isle de La Cite, past the Notre Dame and down to the Quay D'Orsay. Just the thing to rest your legs after doing so much walking around Paris!.Most enjoyable.Reviewed by: Gill S, May 2013
We had a most interesting trip firstly along the Paris Canals starting at La Villette Park and travelling south passing through 9 locks before entering in to the Seine. The trip continued along the Seine passing many historic sights until we reached the iconic Eiffel Tower then return to disembark at The D'Orsay Museum. Our very knowledgeable guide provided an interesting and detailed commentary on the features of the canals and the numerous historic sights we passed on the Seine. A most enjoyable afternoons outing.Reviewed by: Moyra, May 2013
A wonderful cruise which we enjoyed very much. Going down the canal is a great experience, particularly with an expert guide like Arnauld.Reviewed by: Anne, Germany, May 2013
Excellent tour and value for money.Reviewed by: Bernadette D, May 2013
We thought the trip was great. The cold weather turned almost balmy, the skies were clear and the trip both informative and scenic. A live narration,in both French and English, was provided. The trip through the series of locks was a unique experience.
My partner and I recommend this trip to all ages. Kathleen ( from Seattle Washington)
I was really interested in the canal systems in Paris. This tour didn't disappoint amazing experience and well worth doing something a bit different from the usual river cruise.Reviewed by: Natalie, November 2012
We enjoyed the final Canal and River Cruise of the 2012 season on a bright, but slightly chilly Sunday afternoon. I suspect that we were not alone in being unaware that there was a delightful canal through the city. The guide was extremely informative and highly amusing in two languages, ver good value!Reviewed by: Alan H, November 2012
Loved it! The guide was friendly and informative. The tour started in the northeastern section of Paris and dropped us off in the center of town near the Orsay. We went through a tunnel and were underneath the streets of the city for a time where larger boats would not have been able to go.Reviewed by: Jennifer C, November 2012
