Wow. I did this cruise by myself and chose my own table (so I can really only speak for the premier service with private table). But looking around at the other guests who I assume were randomly put at tables with other diners, they were enjoying themselves immensly. The service I had was superb and of top grade quality. The meal was quite big so don't be concerned about having a meal that's all about presentation and little on quantity. The amount of wine/champagne that was on hand and all inclusive was impressive as was the quality. The views of Paris at night from the Seine are as you'd expect - excellent (notable because it rained as well). I'll do this cruise again but next time I'll take my girlfriend!
This was for my friend's actual 50th Birthday surprise night, and thank goodness it was a complete success!! We were collected from our hotel and the driver was very friendly and lovely to talk to and picked us up after the meal to return to the hotel on time. The food and atmosphere was faultless, although a tourist attraction this was well worth the money for a memorable evening in Paris. Beautiful lit up images pass you by whilst listening to lovely music and eating delicious food. First class sophisticated evening!!
Truly a superb way to enjoy Paris at night in a wonderful setting and great food!
The entire evening was a dream from start to finish. Picked up from the hotel and whipped across Paris to join the boat. The staff were welcoming and attentive, the food as good as a Michelin stared restaurant, and the we were surprised to find that two bottles of very good French wine plus glasses of Champagne and dessert wine were included as well. Admittedly the weather was kind to us, but the scenery and view from the boat along the Seine were magic! A great evening, and well worth paying for the upgraded option, with a table at the front of the boat.
We booked the Premier option. Expensive, perhaps, but worth every penny. The taxi was on time and we were looked after beautifully the whole evening. The food was first-class as were the champagne and wines, and our table for two
afforded the best views on the boat. Will definitely book it again.
An excellent evening. Enjoyed the whole experience. Well worth the money.
The best part of our vacation. The food was fabulous and the service was great. Had a table for two which made for a intimate atmosphere. Would recomend this at the beginning of your trip.
We really enjoyed our 25th Wedding Cruise. The top service was expensive but worth it for a special private evening. The hotel pick up and return was exemplary
This is a don't miss. We had a magical evening. Great atmosphere, beautiful scenery, great food and service.
Of all the things my wife and I did while in Paris, booking our dinner cruise with Bateaux Parisiens was the best! The landing is at the foot of the Eiffel Tower so it begins and ends with a picturesque setting....Our meal was perfect - rivaled the dinner we had the night before at a 5 Star..... add in the Seine and the landmarks lit up at night ......and you have perfection! If you do nothing else while in Paris, do yourself a favor and book this cruise!
An outstanding experience from beginning to end. Truly special. Beyond 5 star review.
The best river cruise I have ever been on. The food, sights and sounds were amazing and unforgettable.
The shuttle driver was great. The dinner was suburb, plenty of wine to celebrate our 50th wedding Anniversary, the cruise was one of the highlights of our trip as it was on the night of our Anniversary. To be collected by shuttle and returned to hotel was of immense value for two oldies.
WHAT A NIGHT !!!!! We chose the premium package and everything about this lived up to our expectations. It was a special night and birthday celebration that we will never forget. The service on board, the entertainment and the food and wine were superb. We would highly recommend this premium package experience to all.
The whole evening was first class,from hotel pick up to drop off .the location the food and entertainment was excellent.
More expensive than other cruises but worth it. We had the van pick us up which saved a lot of hassle, and more importantly you get there early so they can start serving you without rushing. We upgraded to a front window table for two. They let us split two red wines instead of one red and one white which was great, and wine was the best we've had so far. Great choice of food, only comment is the side dish (green mashed potatoes with beans) while creative was a little too starchy. Everything else from appetizer to dessert was a treat. Great view of the city at night, we were worried about taking pictures because of the glass but since it was dark and the boat was moving most cameras couldn't get pictures anyway. Besides, weather threatened rain and it was better being indoors. Entertainment was cheesy but pleasant, singer wandered through the ship in an orange tuxedo like a lounge lizard, and we got a laugh as he tried to cover Micheal Jackson but otherwise was good atmosphere music (we were in front so volume was fine). the cruise was the highlight of our Paris visit, I was concerned I was overpaying but since this was our first visit I didn't want to take the chance on disappointment and I was pleased. Would do again next time around.
This was another highlight of my trip. This may be considered very touristy, but my son, his wife and I had a fun time. We took advantage of the shuttle service which was prompt and the driver very friendly.
The view we had on the cruise was great. We had a great table seating, and we saw many interesting sights along the way, including large groups of people listening to music and dancing along the Seine. The weather was nice as well. We enjoyed the food, and the service. It ended at the Eiffel Tower when the lights were just about to begin sparkling. WOW! Very impressive and memorable.
It was our first night in Paris and -- I know you don't control the weather--a beautiful evening. Our driver, Max, was prompt and very courteous. The boat was very nice, the food very good and some extended time between courses just gave us more time to enjoy the scenery. Your entertainment was also very nice and added to the ambience. Just memorable to pull back into the dock just as the Eiffel Tower is setting off its extravaganza of flashing lights! Not an inexpensive tour but just great.
The highlight of our trip to Paris. The service, dinner and entertainment were great, the view was spectacular.
