  • So beautiful. We took the last tour so that we could see the city at night and we weren't disappointed. The guide was great, spoke in English and French. I wish they would've timed the tour a bit better so that we could be in front of the Eiffel Tower at the top of the hour to see the sparkling lights. It was so incredibly windy and cold yet I would do it again in a heartbeat. We were able to purchase the tickets from our hotel so we got them for $10. Very great deal. Definitely recommend.
  • I took one of the first boats of the day, so it was relatively empty, but given how many seats are on the boat I can imagine it gets crowded. The tour guides were friendly but the boat windows were very dirty so it made it kind of hard to see out or get good pictures. Also, while you might not smell the river much on the street level - at least in the winter - you will definitely smell it while in a boat, any boat, even with the windows closed. Keep that in mind if you don't think you can handle an hour of piss-smell.
