Grace Harvey

Enjoyable cruise with knowledgeable, entertaining sommelier with 3 glasses of champagne. Nice to see Paris at night. If you're going to pay for an hour long cruise, might as well enjoy it with some bubbly, would recommend if it's in your budget, but wouldn't break the house since they are much more affordable cruises.

Holly Carrell

I was skeptical that this would be worth the $, but in the end, it definitely was. The champagne selection was amazing, the accommodations were very comfortable and superior to what I've previously experienced and the sommelier/guide was knowledgable and entertaining. Strongly recommend!

We were a party of four adults. We enjoyed this cruise so much since from day 1 of our vacation, we really looked forward to this cruise...We saw Paris along the Siene River in a relax and dreamy mood!

Michael Fenech

The Seine cruise and champagne tasting was an enjoyable experience. Richard the sommelier was both informative about the differences of the champagne that we tasting and knowledgeable about the sights that we were seeing from the boat. However I think that patrons should have their tickets checked prior to entering in the closed area reserved for champagne tasting as some people came in this reserved area and therefore had to be asked to leave. This could mar the whole experience.


We have a great trip, the weather was great and the tastings were excellent - friendly host and some great guests.
