I took my Mum on the Seine River Dinner Cruise and it was a magical evening. Our driver picked us up from our hotel and returned us to our hotel. The service and food was spectacular. The staff were very accommodating with my gluten free food requirement. Highly recommend this trip.

Initially, when I booked this tour, I was skeptical, but in every way it exceeded my expectations. I wholeheartedly recommend it! We were picked up at our hotel -- for free -- by a lovely young French woman who spoke outstanding English. The food on the boat was superb, and the boat itself was sparkling clean and very elegantly appointed. The wait staff were all dressed in tuxedos and did a fantastic job. The piped-in music was delivered over a wonderful, high-quality sound system, and incorporated a little bit of everything, from jazz to Broadway to French standards. The culminating event for the evening was the dazzling light show along the entire Eiffel Tower structure. It was so captivating and marvelous that we diners spontaneously erupted in applause when it was all over. Never in my wildest dreams could I have imagined such a wonderful dinner cruise! Expensive, but worty every penny!!

Everyone who visits Paris should take at least one dinner cruise on the Seine. Our cruise was well organized and even with a crowd, the seating and service was quite personal and private. The view from the riverboat presents a charming and romantic Paris and the Eiffel Tower after dark is magical. The hotel pickup is a nice convenience and the driver was pleasant and easy to locate at the end of the cruise.

The Eiffel Tower lit up is a sight not to be missed. Seeing it in style with a great dinner made it that much more special.

What a wonderful experience! The hotel pickup was especially nice. Our English-speaking driver, Manuel, gave us a brief tour of Paris as we picked up and dropped off additional passengers. He was entertaining and fun. The cruise was very good with excellent views along the Seine and of the Eiffel Tower and (French) Statue of Liberty. The 3-course dinner was quite good, beautifully presented, and included all appetizers and desserts, and a choice of main course, and the waiters were very nice and helpful, though they didn't speak English. Because there were 3 in our group, two bottles of wine were included. We chose a rose and a red, both of which were very good. I had a hard time taking pictures of the Eiffel Tower with my inexpensive camera, but my daughter got an amazing video of the twinkling lights with her iPhone. Quite beautiful!

What was missing?
- The boat we were on had only windows along the sides, with curtain separators, not over the top ("entirely glass-surround restaurant boat"). So from our seats in the middle section, rather than along the sides, some views were a little limited and forced us to impose on adjacent outside tables to get a few of the pictures. But the passengers along the sides were very accommodating.
- There were 3 options for the main course, and the beef option was an extra 8 euros. Not a big deal to us, but guests at an adjacent table were not so happy.
- I had a little trouble calling to arrange our pickup location, mainly because of my unfamiliarity with the options. Be sure to select the "Transfer" option; otherwise, you probably won't get through.
- There was no narration during the trip to indicate what we were seeing. But the background music was very pleasant, and we were content to just view the buildings, amazing bridge architecture, and people enjoying their evening along the Seine.

Even with the minor problems, I highly recommend this cruise. It was a major highlight of our visit to Paris!

Pickup and delivery from hotel was great. Driver explained sites on the way. Food was very good and being in front of Eiffel Tower at 11:00 when it began twinkling was the best. Definitely a high spot while we were in Paris.

Wonderful cruise on the Seine! The boat's windows were spotless, perfect for viewing the beautiful city. The food was plentiful and delicious. Wines were also lovely, beginning with pink champagne! The timing of the cruise was very well considered with appropriate music piped throughout the night as we passed specific icons. The boat cruised passed the Eiffel Tower just as it began to sparkle on the hour. Then danced together to finish a perfect night!

This was the highlight of our trip to Paris. I would highly recommend it as a relaxing way to see the city. All the major landmarks were lit up and spectacular. We had the pleasure of meeting two other wonderful couples from Scotland and the US to make the evening more interesting.
