We took the "one hour" trip and were very unimpressed. We boarded ten minutes before the scheduled departure time. The outside seating areas were virtually full (we hadn't been warned of this - had we known before paying we would have opted for the later trip). The boat's engine was idling and exhaust fumes were blowing back across the deck.... More

If you expect to see anything of Avignon from the water other than the bridge, you wont. We took the 1 hr trip. There is nothing to see other than electric pylons and bushes. Everyone on the boat was looking at their phones waiting for it to end. It was boring. A total waste of money and time.

If you are unsure which restaurant to pick from the large variety of places in Avignon, and if you want to sight see and not just eat, than this is the perfect opportunity to spend the evening. We have booked St Benezet dinner cruise. It started in time. Because probably the season is just starting, we were only 7 tables... More

We took this trip without lunch as a trip to Arles and then returned by train. so it was only 16 euros each. You could buy drinks on the boat but really only after the lunch passengers were served. Unfortunately the weather was not very good so it was a little uncomfortable, although the staff did clear an unused dinner... More

We took the trip to Arles which takes about two hours. It was a very pretty journey along the river with one or two things along the way to see. The cost was 18 euro for just the trip or about 44 euro to 80+ euro for lunch depending on the menu. We took the cheapest menu as we really... More

...to Arles as non-eating passengers (we came back by train). At €16.00 ish each, this was good value for the 2+ Hour trip, the high point of which was the transit of the spectacular Beaucaire lock, just North of Arles. The main focus of service was on the 100+ lunching passengers, but the draught Leffe beer was nice.

We booked this trip online from the UK which was really easy and printed the receipt which was all we needed. We decided to book the Clipper menu but without the included drinks so we had fois gras to start, followed by beef in chateauneuf du pape jus, 3 goats cheeses and a platter of 4 small desserts.

If you have touristic expectations to see historic buildings or nice views from the water, you will be disappointed. If you want to enjoy the evening sun with a refreshing breeze on the water for 10 euros, then ok.

We really enjoyed our day trip on the Rhone river with Mierio cruises. We opted for the top of the line package, complete with champagne, red wine, water, foie gras, tenderloin, three cheese platter, five dessert platter, and coffee. Food was superb!
