Our circuit is unique, because it is part of slow tourism: with its small size, it is considered a 'small boat'. It allows us to be attentive to each of our passengers, we take the time to discuss with you, to share with you the life of the sailors for example, or of the river brigade, of the ecosystem of the Seine River. We are the only ones to offer 3 experiences in 1: a hybrid minibus tour, a boat tour and a guided tour with commentary: we'll have a good time with you! In the same Hybrid Minibus with individual and very ventilated seats, from the Chateau de Versailles to the Pont des Arts in Paris.
