Cathedral at St. Denis
July 12th 2024
The tics were delivered to my email box. So easy and convenient! We just hopped in a cab and went. The cathedral is very interesting as it is the burial place of so many kings and queens. It is being renovated but that wasn’t a problem. Everything was very clean. Impressive job! Ok, so it will help to read up on it because everything is in French without English translations but it’s not difficult to identify the caskets. The cathedral is located in an older area so keep your belongings close to you. I didn’t feel threatened but I was watchful. The people working at the Cathedral are bilingual and very helpful. Definitely worth a visit if you love history or architecture. I will use this company again. Good communication too. Michele

Departures are from the Port de la Bourdonnais at the foot of the Eiffel Tower for the Bateaux Parisiens, at the Port de la Conférence at the foot of the Pont de l'Alma for the Bateaux-Mouches. The differences between the companies lie in the details: the Bateaux Parisiens cruises offer personal audio guides when those of the Bateau Mouches offer audio comments broadcast by stereo speakers; Bateaux Parisiens charge for the location of the table and the quality of the wines when the price of the Bateaux Mouches dinner cruise also influences the quality of the menu.
