My mother enjoyed this. Booked this as felt good money for what it offered. It was enjoyed a lot by the children and "young pensioners". Those on the cruise were a mix of nationalities. The commentary by Francis in French and English was entertaining and detailed. It did feel a bit more canal than siene river cruise - really 80% canal - so better for those seeking off the beaten track type cruises. I think you pay a lot more for cruises that just focus on the landmarks. I'd recommend definitely.

Our guide was fantastic!! So knowledgeable and with just the right amount of humor occasionally thrown in. Going through the locks was very cool! Each one different and a learning experience. Definitely worth the money. Byo snacks and beverage if you want, but even with that, I would totally recommend!!

This was the trip from HELL! Viking canceled flights, we were never told, missed 2 days of our cruise, because we were never picked up at airport, emergency no. never answered, got there by taxi in middle of night, lost luggage, when we finally started cruise, locks broke, had to be bused everywhere, caught covid on return trip, flight home was delayed, had to sleep in airport, on and on had no clothing or meds for 5 days. It was a nightmare, and Viking will do nothing to support us. Purchased insurance, but they seem to only pay for cancelled trip. Viking gave us no support, and were very rude over the phone. MY ADVICE- go with anyone but Viking. For someone we thought had a good reputation, they did nothing for us but take our $14,000.00 for the worst experience of our lives, and will not compensate us a DIME. VIKING, as far as customer service, YOU STINK!!

We unfortunately could not make it for the trip. There was a national wide protest and public transport was severely affected. We would have loved to make the trip but could not reach the location. I had requested La Vacanza Travel for a refund but they were unwilling to offer a refund.

This cruise took us via canal to areas of Paris we didn't know existed. To be honest, we didn't realize how extensive and interesting the canals are. Only negative was the loudspeaker on the boat which made it difficult to clearly hear the guide.
