La croisière est super intéressante mais le bateau est bruyant et on se fait gazer à chaque traversée d’écluses. Le commentateur est excellent.

I've done cruises on the Seine before but this is a great alternative as you cruise on the Seine and on canal Saint Martin. We had live comments in French and English with many historical facts. A great part was the 2km long tunnel to get from canal Saint Martin to the Seine. Defenetly something we will never seen otherwise.

Malheureusement annulée à cause d'une écluse défectueuse j'en suis d'autant navrée que j'avais organisé tout un circuit (visite de Toutânkhamon puis croisière St. Martin puis Berthe Morisot au musée Orsay) que j ai dû faire en métro finalement et je quitte Paris demain donc impossible de reporter la croisière... c'était la malchance...
