Your Champagne cruise begins as evening settles on the City of Light. Head to the dock by the Eiffel Tower where you'll receive a personal reception aboard the ship.

Make your way to a private room at the front of the boat and meet your sommelier, then pass the time learning about distinguished French wineries and styles through tasting three Champagnes—a Brut, Demi-sec, and Rosé.  

Ask questions of your sommelier and snap photos of Paris’ great riverside landmarks like the Musée d'Orsay, the Louvre, and the Grand Palais as you float down the historic Seine.

Grand Trip on the Seine

We greatly enjoyed our time on the Seine River Champagne cruise with sommilier Paul. We learned some new points about champagne and liked visiting with the other participants as we all enjoyed a beautiful hour on the Seine.

Bubbly on the Seine

Very nice experience. We sat in the front of the boat which was uncovered a bit windy and a little hard to hear the host of the experience, at the same time as the narrator of the trip. The other riders were right behind our group. The Champagne tasting was more than adequate tasting, a full glass of each one of 3 selections. I would have liked to hear more about the samples, and host could pour less and and a little quicker, as we were pulling back up to the dock and barely finished the last glass. All in all, well worth the trip!

Beautiful experience!

Lovely and educational. I think all four of us were impressed with the beautiful views at sunset, as well as the warm and personable lesson on Champagne. The Champagnes themselves were tasty and the pours were generous. Especially fun was showing us the sword technique for opening a bottle. The only critique I have is that instructions on where to go (where on the vedettes de Paris / porte de sufferen we were supposed to go) was too vague and there were no instructions on what to do when we got there. Luckily it worked out, but a moment of panic hit when we weren't sure what to to do and we thought we might miss the boat. Otherwise, excellent experience.

A really special start to a great trip to Paris. The host was charming and very knowledgeable. The champagnes were all interesting and amazing choices. We learned a lot, got to cruise down the Seine with friends, and toast! Would highly recommend.

It is a scam- DO NOT BOOK
Federica_J

This is not at all as described- this is not in a private room but rather in a sectioned off part of a tour boat with a few chairs and no tables. You will not be in a private tasting with tour party but with others who also booked the tour. As this is a tour boat, there is a guide who is narrating on a speaker at top volume and the same time that the sommelier is speaking. It is impossible to hear the sommelier and so we really have no idea what the explanations were and as he had to repeat himself, he gave very brief descriptions. Additionally, the boat staff themselves were incredibly rude and unhelpful as it was difficult to find where we were supposed to go- again because we were looking for a private room (which did not exist). All in all, don’t book this it is a total scam.
icon Response from Host , Nov 2021
Dear guest, We are truly sorry you had a bad experience with our Champagne Cruise activity. That being said, we do not feel your remarks are quite fair. The description of the activity clearly states that the private room is at the front of the boat, and yes, this is a boat, so it is a private section, I am not too sure of what else you were expecting. Also, we never mention that this is a private tour for just your party of people. Considering the price of the activity, if only 2 guests were attending, it would be an exceptionally good deal! We do limit the number of people though, so that this activity is still fairly intimate, and provides a good interaction with the sommelier present. As for the content, again, we promote a fun tour « combining sightseeing and wine tasting », so yes, there are explanations about the monument as well as the Champagne tasting. Most people that participate find it to be a good combination judging by the reviews they leave afterwards, but I am afraid you were expecting something else - something we do not have, and don’t pretend to. We do organize more formal tastings at our venue in the centre of Paris, with tables and chairs and no sightseeing. And at last, us O Chateau are a company dedicated to wine tasting, we do not own the boat, as this is clearly a partnership between our company and les Vedettes de Paris. We are not whatsoever responsible for the boat staff, and are very sorry if they were rude to you, but are not liable for it. Again, we are always sorry to hear that people did not enjoy one of our tours because this is always our priority. But we feel like, maybe, you did not read carefully what this tour was about prior to booking, and feel disappointed afterwards, which we can understand. But leaving such a hateful comment does not feel very fair to us.
