Bateaux Mouches, which has been operating in Paris on the Seine for over 60 years, now also sails in Montreal and in Dubai (where it's called Bateaux Dubai).

A number of new ones are slated for development. The Cvent Event Blog will keep you posted. In the meantime, here is Snow Factor in Scotland.
