    We are 2 adults and 2 children and yet the reduced rate does not apply when I add it to the basket. How do I do it?
    Thank you

    Hello, did you choose the adult and child rate (from 2 tickets purchased)? At 16,50 / adult and 8,50 / child? That is 50 euros in total for 4 people?

    I went on this cruise yesterday with my 7 year old daughter, it was very disappointing.
    The tour guide simply mentions the monuments we pass by, sometimes adding an anecdote that can be found on Wikipedia.
    His speech is flat and uninteresting.
    I do not recommend, we were bored.

    We are sorry that you did not enjoy this cruise. We have forwarded your comment to Vedettes de Paris.

    I have tickets (2 adults, 2 children). Is it necessary to make an additional reservation for Monday August 30 at 11 a.m. Or can I
    boarding directly, being sure that there is room on that day and at that time?

    The cruises on the Seine are without reservation. The family cruise is a great success, so we advise you to arrive about 20 minutes before the departure.
