Despite the rain, this trip was memorable. The directions to get to the dock were not as clear as I thought and we almost missed the boat! However, once aboard, the champagne tasting portion of the boat was well prepared and comfortable. The sommelier was knowledgeable and kind. He was generous in his pours and provided a nice variety of champagnes.

The audio was somewhat difficult to hear and was even more difficult given the sommelier's talk about the wine. Perhaps a hand out about the sites would be helpful.

An added bonus for this tour - my fiancee proposed to me halfway through the tour! So, I have to give this tour a four stars because I will never forget the experience!

A great short tour to see the sites of Paris from the river while sipping three refreshing champagnes. Our guide/sommelier was wonderful - very knowledgable, very friendly and took plenty of pics for us! This was a great break between all the walking and sight seeing we did. Also a great way to prepare for an evening in Paris. Highly recommended!

This was the first thing I did with my husband once we landed in Paris. It was so relaxing to be on the boat after flying for nearly 8 hours. We were given plenty of champagne in a private area at the front of the boat. You are able to walk outside to feel the breeze and take pictures. This was a great introduction to Paris as you are able to see all of the major sites along the Seine. We had a better sense of the layout of Paris and knew what we wanted to see the next day. Our "guide" was very knowledgeable about the champagne and would keep us informed about the sites we were seeing as we passed by.

I booked this cruise for my boyfriends birthday.. we had just arrived in Paris and the cruise was so relaxing after the flight. we had a private room at the front of the boat- our champagne expert Justin was brilliant, very knowledgable and eager to answer any questions. we tried 3 champagnes (two white and one rose) and got an extra glass easch of the majority favourite as there wasnt many people on the cruise. The boat left at 6pm which meant we saw the sunset in Paris and the Eiffel tower sparkle when we arrived back to dock - it was magical! i highly recommend this trip, it was the perfect beginning to our weekend.
