I could not understand the tour guide. Her French accent over the speaker was too garbled for me to understand

Got to see many of the tourist attractions in Paris that are visible from the Seine River along with a tour guide explanations. At times it was difficult to hear the tour guide. Also, I paid for champagne but since I did not have a printed copy of my ticket which slowed that option I did not receive the champagne. My booking should have showed that option and the tour should have had a record.

It was okay, the boat was producing a lot of smelly fumes so it was hard to enjoy without coughing. But we enjoyed the views, we selected the picnic ticket but they picnic is not on the boat ride it’s afterwards on the dock given through a container window

I wasn't told that due to high water levels the cruise would be cut short and not pass any of the major monuments. While I understand this is outside of the group's control, they could've indicated this to customers and given them the option to be refunded instead of them finding out after the boat had already left the shore. Also, apparently the high water levels had been an issue for the entire week/ wasn't a surprise. Poor communication all around!

Our trip was abbreviated due to flooding and high river waters. Boat was delayed and crowded on the lower deck as the top deck was niot able to be used due to the highwaters. We also had to rlturn around earlier than usual and did not get to go be Notre Dame.
