The tour was good but I had a different expectation. I wish we had spent less time on the canals and more on the river.

Avoid this your . Vague details to find the boat. Called multiple (4) times and was told someone would be at the ticket booth. When located no one was there. I called again and was told someone would be there in 20 minutes, after an hour I left .

Tour guide had a good commentary, but the canal portion of the trip was rather tedious. Nine locks was at least 5 too many. Also one of the swing bridges wasn’t operating properly and we had to wait for technicians to arrive. Even our tour guide helped get the bridge to operate. This meant the last portion of the tour on the Seine was short and disappointing.

Seeing renovations on Notre Dame cathedral and the locks. Would have been more attractive without the overcast skies.

The trip takes more than 2 hours and our guide obviously knew what he was talking about. This trip is off the beaten track.

Traveling Through Locks

This is what 80 of the cruise looked like.

The Long Tunnel

This is my mom, Muriel, enjoying the long trip through the 2km tunnel.

Image

Unique Experience

Going through the locks is a unique experience. And the tunnels! One of the tunnels is 2km long.

Image

Best Seating

The best seating is inside next to the captain if it's raining, as it was when we did the cruise. You get to see everything and you stay dry. However, you will need to go outside to get the best photographs.
