Go for late departures so as to enjoy the illuminated monuments of the city of Paris! Les Vedettes are invaded by tourists throughout the year, but this circuit on the water still remains a pleasant moment of relaxation and discovery!

It is very pretty and affordable level price. It is to do: practical for tourists, but interest for Parisian brings little (except for a little sunshine letting itself guide on the Seine).
sebinath le 01/12/2010
A classic to all the year to discover or rediscover Paris Good idea if you reserve on access, a discount, but you must print a countermark.
kalymimi le 31/08/2010
really disappointed, this day I have to fall on the worst guide which rai in terrible English and even for us tourist little explanation on the history of these bridges and monuments that us entouraitent (still happy that I had my guide personally), probably not very interested in what he told us... one hour, one hour from walk that go to kill time and say highly that descends
vachemou le 25/01/2010
pretty very pleasant cruises especially in sunny weather with historic commentary and walks along the water.

Make a indignant trusted! Envy reserve two bikes for a romantic weekend. I call. First unfruitful try. Second unfruitful try. Third try: I said that it is advisable to book by Internet. The thing, confirmation the next day. One me request time shrinking bikes. I indicate between 10: 30 and 11: 00. The D-day, arrive at the shop on 10: 05. Nobody. Surprising given the opening hours (Hours indicated: 09: 30 - 18: 30). We decide to wait 10: 30: always nobody. With 11: 00, departure as imperative hours then. After: a completely removed from the weekend, by the amateurism and laziness of Paris Bicycle Tour! I say I tried to retrace on several occasions in the day, I had never meet... Toll: Establishment indignant at any confidence!

During an organised visit, we visited the Marais district cycling. The atmosphere is not bad and dynamic entertainer. The small problems stay in the fact moving cycling in very busy place.

I my first made on a boat last June during one evening organised for my 50ans box. The course began at the foot of the Eiffel Tower. magnificent! The buffet was sumptuous. An excellent evening!
brinsdekozet le 15/08/2011
very fun and nice when the weather is nice, unmissable because different views overlooking paris beach in summer. attention, all companies are not the same price for the same service!
christelle82 le 18/04/2011
Walk on the Seine. On the other hand I you déconseil the Paris bistro (balade+restaurant). The service is to be wanted, the rather unique menu without choice or flavours. Cold dishes, desserts frozen, prefabricated salads. With my opinion the menu at €30 is banished, when the varied menu, we do not know if it is better. In any case people who pays €30 for walk and meal, available version inside the restaurant, in a corner in the shade, on small round table or tea can not be placed, if you are several very practical steps to eat together ..................

ministar99 le 03/08/2011
Very convenient for visiting the main tourist sites of Paris, especially that you can go up and down as many times as you want. A little expensive place.
brnicebar le 13/07/2011
An extra way to visit Paris with a breathtaking view on the 2nd floor of the Bus. The courses offered are very complete and prices are not expensive. The " really should be made; large Tour" with L'Open Tour to have your eyes and enjoy this magnificent city!

Small bus pleasant to take (especially on sunny days). It is a little expensive but allows a quick tour of Paris and especially to revise/learn its various monuments. Inconvenience, it is quite brisk.

Yann91800 le 29/05/2012
It is not a tourist train! It is more than a shuttle Montmartre/moulin rouge, the duration is by way of 20 minutes (train runs relatively quickly), the comments audios are very rare and poor quality, enormously world wants to go up in Montmartre and aggressive to those who wish to stay. In a word, avoid absolutely! It is better to visit Montmartre walk, which is also more economical!
ministar99 le 03/08/2011
For a quick trip to Montmartre, it is a good way. But it is more pleasant to stroll in the streets all these street artists.
morille le 20/01/2010
Completely of agreement with zazoute. The comments are absolutely no interest. Very disappointing.
carole1983 le 04/09/2009
To make this trip on foot is much more enriching because you will discover more things...
