lukewarm feeling
Written by JOELLE MANDELBAUM, on 25-06-2022

I had offered this outing to my 6 year old son specifically because the walk was to be commented by a lecturer chosen to speak to children along the way. However, the lecturer that day (although very nice) did not speak good French at all ... from Metropolitan France (maybe she was Canadian??) since she had a very strong foreign accent ... so my little son did not understand anything of her speech, I had to explain everything to him and comment the visit as we went along. I was expecting a pleasant and relaxing visit, it was not at all the case! Why not use French people from France to comment a visit of Paris for French children...??? PS. His English was perfect but my little son doesn't speak English yet...

Memorable family visit
Written by Sophia S-M, on 14-06-2022

Memorable stroll on the stage. Lots of anecdotes about Parisian bridges and monuments. The kids loved it and so did the parents. (My only downside, the beers were not fresh to rectify). Otherwise, I invite everyone to make this small escapade.

Beautiful tour but not adapted for children
Written by Samantha Wright on 14-06-2022

We booked the family tour as we were travelling with our two young children and knew they would just be bored by a standard tour. From an adult's perspective the tour was wonderful, a really good way to see Paris when we only had a few hours to spare there. However I could not see how this had been adapted for children at all. The kids were bored. I was left thinking that the idea of a family tour is just to reduce the number of children on the other tours. The organizers should watch Horrible Histories to see how to make history entertaining and interesting for kids. They want to know about blood, guts and gore - there's plenty of that in Paris's history!

The bateau-mouche, a must-see
Written by Sophie Roche-Ridard, 14-06-2022

Seeing Paris from the Seine is always a pleasure, especially since the staff on the platform was very good. Two small drawbacks : - regarding the tickets, a small scare with two children when it is impossible to pass the paper tickets and very complicated with the dematerialized tickets. Thanks to the person in charge of the control for his patience; - regarding the services on board the boat, please bring bottles of still water, because on board, there was only sparkling water, not always appreciated by the children. The special children's side is quite successful.

visit of Paris from the Seine -> instructive but not really adapted for children
Written by Alice Ygnace, 09-06-2022

Guide passionate about the history of Paris, nice anecdotes, with a touch of humor. Interesting for the adults but the children did not like it at all. The boat is quite noisy which is normal but makes listening difficult. In my opinion, if everyone had headphones it would be great and the kids would be much more attentive!

Written by SOLENE, on 08-06-2022

I recommend it because after having tried all the companies (with friends who came to visit me) it is clearly the best experience by far, The size of the boat is very good and the furniture well maintained. Hats off to this guide who was very professional and adorable unlike the other companies who read their text in 4 languages barely mastered, she gave nice anecdotes and in both languages with a lot of enthusiasm, it was really a pleasant moment! The children and even us adults enjoyed it.

Too many people
Written by Chloé de Perry-Sibailly, on 30-05-2022

We arrived at 3:10pm for a family tour at 3:30pm and were told to come back 15min later. When we came back there were over 50 people in front of us... all of whom took the seats upstairs. We found ourselves on benches down at the back of the boat without hearing anything because the speakers which transmitted what the guide said upstairs did not have a volume higher than that of the engines of the boat... moreover the toilets in front of us started to leak and all the bridge was soaked. We finally settled upstairs standing... next to people without children sitting who were doing the tour without knowing that it was a family tour because nothing indicated it... in short. Really disappointed, and we were not the only ones.

This is a family cruise and not especially for children.
Written by Serge Makaroff , on 27-05-2022

Our disappointment comes from the fact that we were expecting a cruise that would be more for children and that would not look like a classic cruise. It is true that we had the pleasure, before the pandemic, to participate in the "enchanted cruise" with Philou and Lila who animated wonderfully this cruise for children. But in the spirit of the proposed cruise, we have nothing to reproach; the welcome was perfect, the captain impeccable, the comments were good even if being bilingual, we lost the attention of the children and the adults too. Adaptations should be made for both English and French speakers (separate schedules). And since it is intended for families, make sure that the commentaries are more intended for children in a playful spirit.

To be avoided!!! It was supposed to be a family cruise, with commentaries adapted to children.

Written by Anne-Claire, on 16-05-2022

Very well organized activity, we feel that it turns at full speed. Friendly captain and a real tour guide who gives explanations and anecdotes - a very good point. On the other hand, the booked activity was a cruise specially adapted to children (only one schedule on the whole day) so I thought I would see/hear things adapted for them. This was not the case. Finally there was nothing out of the ordinary of a classic cruise. Too bad... And a big negative point: the toilets accessible on the quay when leaving are paying... A little bit too much when you have already paid for the cruise.

Written by Ludivine DELAUNAY, on 14-05-2022

We were very well received by the fly boat company but the only problem was the lack of exchange with the guide for the children. The guide stayed at the back of the boat the whole time and only exchanged with a few children. My 9 year old daughter would have liked to participate but quickly stopped because the person ignored us. Moreover the sound of the microphone was not strong enough, we had to listen carefully to get some information.

Unfriendly snack; only child to take a snack; no animation during this snack. No announcement informing us that it was snack time. This does not correspond at all to a "family cruise". We were told that the cruise was "fun and interactive for children from 6 to 11 years old; animated by a lecturer specializing in Paris, who is particularly interested in children: anecdotes, amusing stories about the monuments, bridges, statues, etc." This was not the case at all. I would not recommend this cruise to anyone who wants to please one (or more) child(ren)

Very good reception and clear and understandable comments, we could admire several monuments of Paris that we would not have had time to see without the visit. There are just some moments where we could not see the things announced we were placed under the roof. Thank you

disappointing for children

Very good organization The interactions between the animator and the children are great. We can see that this gentleman loves his job and you can feel it. My daughter was delighted! I recommend this special kids cruise to all families!

A beautiful trip on the Seine adapted to children
Written by Marie-Christine DURA, on 28-03-2022

Paris, always so magic seen from the Seine. The human size of the boats is a plus. The commentaries on the different sites are interesting for both adults and children. Arrive well in advance to have seats on the roof.

Pleasant family outing
Written by linda hazan, on 27-03-2022

The boat is not very big which gives it a charm. The terrace of the boat is very pleasant nevertheless too many people are admitted on the boat, some remaining upright and stuck to the seats all along the ride thus preventing to enjoy the view and the ride.

Good but not "especially" suitable for children
Written by Audrey Moutier, 24-03-2022

I thought I had booked a cruise with a tour specially adapted for children. In fact it is a cruise with a "classic" guide. Nothing to complain about the cruise but I don't recommend it if you want something completely adapted for young people.

Disappointments

This was normally a fun kids cruise!!! We had the opposite !!! There was just a guide who spoke on the microphone and recited all the monuments of Paris ! Not interesting for the kids !!!

Unjustified price
Written by Claire Disch , 20-03-2022

We had chosen this activity because it was oriented for children and we were quite disappointed. The reception was very good and warm, the animator does his job well and asks some questions to the children but there is not much difference with a "classic" tour. I thought that the children would have had a support or a QR code to be scanned by the parents with games a little more access on the children but it was not. Not the case. The animator knows his text and has energy but not enough original or work to justify this price

Family cruise
Written by Helene , on 16-03-2022

I recommend this family cruise The kids loved it and were not bored. The parents also loved it! It's really great to have the live commentary given by a person and not a recorded voice. It was very lively. The presence of the photographer is not necessary and is more annoying than anything else.

PERFECT
Written by Nathalie LEBACQZ, on 07-03-2022

Online booking was very easy and fast. On the spot, whether it is the person at the counter, the person for the control of the sanitary pass, the person for the boat, and the animator all were adorable and attentive towards the children (group of 6 children this day from 8 to 11 years). Special thanks to Yvan who was very appreciated by young and old alike and who allowed beautiful memories of this visit! The children still talk about it!

Pleasant reception but frustrating comments by the lack of precision even for 6 year olds
Written by michele SCHNEIDER, on 02-03-2022

The effort towards the children is commendable but a minimum of precisions as simply the name of the monuments would be necessary to find there what was not the case..neither date nor name. "The oldest castle, the bridge,." That's not enough! Reservation and welcome top.

Mitigated
Written by Maud PARTOY, on 02-03-2022

An outing made with a 6 year old boy. According to him: "the lady talks too much, she only asks questions to the first row, she knows a lot of things but I hardly remembered anything! Indeed, the explanations are sometimes a bit long for children. But the walk was very pleasant, and the pancakes were excellent ????

I recommend this cruise without any problem to adults and for children not before 12-14 years old. The younger the audience, the more complicated it is to follow, especially over 1 hour.

Written by Brigitte, on 24-02-2022

Visit found a little by chance during research on the internet, but I was particularly delighted. It was more for the children, as well as for the older ones. Adapted to all ages, it remains very professional, the information is complete and the guide knew very well how to captivate the children. We spent an hour there without being bored for a single minute. A visit to recommend for those who discover Paris.

mixed evaluation !
Written by christine RADENAC, 14-02-2022

the pontoon is badly indicated. we went right then left then right again ..... I had taken a family cruise and a booklet : available at 2 different pontoons. the lecturer didn't take care of the children more than that: she made her commentary in French and in English so it was not intended for 'French kids'. there were not too many anecdotes and questions for the kids to be interested in. I would still recommend this activity but fortunately we bought the booklet "incollable" which completed our knowledge on this visit.

Too much information, too much talk
Written by Catherine Berthier, on 08-02-2022

The information given by the guide is not within the reach of children as announced in the sales description. Too bad, we expected something more affordable for them. Besides, the last half hour, the children present on the boat were dispersing.

Written by Kévin Cnockaert, on 23-01-2022

Very good. The only downside is that we reserved a special slot for a cruise for young children and in the end our children did not have seats outside. Most of the seats were taken by adults without children or adults with older teenagers...

Nice trip on the Seine but disappointing compared to the description
Written by Clementine Leray , 02-01-2022

The cruise on the Seine was described as being intended for children with anecdotes addressed to children. This is not the case... The guide is in fact addressed to everybody and not particularly to children. Moreover, you really have to listen to the guide's presentations (as soon as you pass under a bridge or someone is talking next to you, you can't hear anything). Nevertheless, we had a good time and discovered the different monuments of Paris.

EXCELLENT initiative that these comments with the small annecdotes, dedicated to children. Our little son (5 and a half years old) really enjoyed it (the flight of the Mona Lisa...the catfish in the Seine, and the different colors of the Eiffel Tower, the fire

Not suitable for children
Written by Laure , on 02-01-2022

Very disappointed because the explanations were not at all adapted to children contrary to what was indicated on the site. Moreover, because of a too high water level, the boat did not go further than the Pont des Arts and the price remained the same.
