We bought our 3 tickets on our phone yet they would not let us board because we didn't have a paper ticket

And at the booth (where they print out paper tickets for people who buy at the booth), they would not print it out for us even though they saw on our phone that we had paid.

They told us to go back to our hotel and get it printed there.

We asked for a refund and they refused.

So they effectively stole our money. Where I come from (Seattle WA USA), we call people like these, thieves & hustlers.

Please consider using another boat company on the River Seine and refuse to patronize such con artists.

This company ripped us off today. I purchased online tickets but they demanded paper copies, despite showing the attendant proof of purchase and a reference number. We were denied service, with no a commendations. Nice for my 10 year old who was looking forward to the boat.

This amounts to theft. No refund allowed.

Excellent value for money and a great way to get around if you are just wanting the main sites. We stayed near the Louvre and picked up at tickets. We visited Norte Dame and the Eiffel Tower with ease. The staff all spoke excellent English. Only downside is there are no toilets and if you want to do the full circuit you are on board for 1 hour 45 minutes.
