Me and Becky went on this tonight and although we saw some amazing sights the guide really didn’t show any passion in what she was saying which made many people start chatting between themselves. It is still worth it though

The locks are amazing and the information was engaging. I have done this ride twice and enjoyed every minute! My 7year old grandson loved it. He wanted to see the locks from every part of the boat. Perfect way to spend a Sunday afternoon.

Canal Saint-Martin
The tree-lined Canal Saint-Martin is the focal point
of one of the most romantic and hip areas of Paris.
Watch boats travel along the canal while lovers and
friends take in the atmosphere from the banks or the
bridges. Evenings see hoards fill the embankments to
drink wine and enjoy good company. The colder days
lead people to hipster bars, cozy restaurants, and
concert spaces. Those who are more adventurous may
