We were visiting Paris to celebrate my birthday and we decided to book a boat ride with Axel for the morning of my birthday. This was a highlight of the day. Axel is a super friendly, nice guy to spend time with. We met at 9:30 and spent the next 2 hours cruising down the Seine and taking in the iconic Parisan monuments/sights by boat. It was great to be in a small, private boat — as compared to the oversized tourist vessels. Axel had croissants and tea/coffee for us and he invited us to DJ our own music as we sailed. We enjoyed hearing about the history and a local perspective on Paris. It helps that Axel speaks perfect English and is well travelled himself. On top of all this, Axel took some fantastic photos of us as we passed by the Eiffel Tower. What more could we ask for? Highly recommend, and hope to bring the rest of our family on this adventure next time we visit.
