I was so impressed with this Seine river cruise. The staff were lovely and polite and the food was super. Even though there were a lot of people dining on the boat and staff milling around it still felt romantic to my husband and I. It made our 25th wedding anniversary so amazing and it will be a trip that I never forget!
Our chauffeur was a delight hd was telling a lo about Paris on the way to our boat, it went so quick. Yet so much we enjoyed seeing Paris at night
This dinner cruise was wonderful and the Eiffel Tower at night is amazingly beautiful. Would Definately recommend this tour.
Enchanting..we went for my husband's birthday...a perfect thing to do for a special celebration! Food was very good, and the hotel pick-up and drop-off was wonderful. We highly recommend this dinner cruise!
This was a great way to begin a trip to France and to see all the sights in Paris lit up at night! Our boat arrived at the Eiffel Tower at 11:00. It not only is lit up, but is set to twinkle, so what a beautiful sight!! Bring your iPhone or video camera to catch the tower twinkling. It's one of my best photos and memories of Paris. We booked the dinner cruise with hotel pickup. Our driver was so amazing. He showed us many sights enroute to the boat. The meal was good and the staff friendly. Would definitely do this again.
The tour is beautiful. Everyone gets a view by the glass. The food was iffy for us but that isn't why we went. It was really very cool to see all the monuments at night. It says formal, which we did, but a lot of people wore jeans etc. The shuttle driver was so awesome.
This Dinner cruise and pickup was fabulous, we enjoyed it very much
As a special gift we enjoyed the dinner cruise very much but a day late! Thankfully we had another night in Paris to take advantage of it. It was a once-a-lifetime opportunity to see Paris by night and enjoy a sumptuous meal on a comfortable boat but the Sunday night cruise had to be cancelled due to boat mechanical trouble. Our dinner was postponed to the following night and the rendezvous with our driver at our hotel was pleasant and prompt. The dinner was delicious, wine supurb and the scenery was magical and memorable especially the sparkling Eiffel Tower! There was dancing after dinner and so much fun. Thankyou to our thoughtful daughter and her family for arranging a treat and a very special night to remember always!
Our second time on this tour and once again a lovely time. I am not going to review the details as it is all a matter of personal taste but all is as advertised.
The perfect way to see Paris at night. We were picked up promptly from our hotel. The meal on the dinner cruise was very nice and the highlight of the night was seeing the Eiffel Tower sparkle just as we were passing. A lovely experience in a beautiful city.
This tour is a must while you are in Paris. Great food, great service and to see the Eiffel Tower lit up at night is something you will remember always.
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 great evening everything was spot on could not fault it.
Highly recommended. from being picked up to dropping off was perfect.
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 a wonderful experience and Pamela our driver was wonderful
This tour was great! Enjoyed the music, food and beautiful scenery! Hotel pick up and drop off was excellent.
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.
