Private Tour: Romantic Seine River Cruise, Dinner and Illuminations Tour

Private Romantic Paris by Night - Seine River Cruise and Dinner

You’ll be picked up at your centrally located Paris hotel in the evening by your English-speaking driver. In a private car with just you and your love one, you’ll be chauffeured to the banks of the Seine for the first part of your romantic evening out.

Sit back, clink your glasses of Champagne, and admire Paris’ waterfront sights on a relaxing 1-hour cruise. When you arrive back at the dock, your driver will take you to a renowned Parisian restaurant near the Champs-Elysées for dinner and drinks. Savor a typical French dinner with wine and more Champagne, finishing with dessert and coffee (see sample menu below).

Your dinner is followed by a nighttime tour of Paris. You'll be picked up from the restaurant and taken past top Paris attractions, monuments and areas all beautifully lit up a night, including l'Arc de Triomphe, Notre-Dame, the Musée d'Orsay, the Opéra, the Panthéon and Place de la Concorde. Cross the Seine several times over famous bridges like Pont Alexandre III, Pont Neuf and Pont Marie, and stop in front of the Eiffel Tower at 11pm to see it sparkle.

There’s something extra magical about Paris at night, and you’ll get to experience this with your loved one on this private tour. Before returning to your hotel around 11:30pm, your driver will offer a rose to the madame and a half bottle of Champagne to take with you as you continue your romantic evening in Paris.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2015

Our tour guide was very personable and informative. The Seine River cruise was on one of the smaller sightseeing boats, so we got a great view of the City from the water. Dinner wasn't bad, but not impressive, either. Paris by night was beautiful. Our guide really gave us a great tour. Worth the money

5 star rating: Highly Recommended February 2009

We were a bit worried at first about the quality of the restaurant, but when we arrived it was amazing. We got a glass of champagne each and then a really nice 3 course meal with really good service. We saw everything around Paris in the one trip, and the river cruise was a nice addition. Would highly recommend, worth the money.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2008

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2008

This was so romantic. The whole evening was magic. The restaurant, the food and the service were superb. For that something special, that once in a lifetime experience, this is an evening to remember.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2008

Our driver was the nicest and most knowledgeable person, we couldn't stump him on any questions. He was on time, prepared, and outstanding in every way!

4 star rating: Recommended October 2015

Christoph was amazing - felt like we knew him from before. I would recommend this to anyone that want to have an intimate time with their other half. We were a little jet-lagged - mainly me, so hope we didn't disappoint Christoph. He still made sure we had an amazing time when we were with him.

Our driver was very lovely and made us feel welcome. The dinner was quite nice and the night drive quite informative.

4 star rating: Recommended September 2008

The dinner wasn't quite as romantic as I had hoped, but was delicious and was in a restaurant that wasn't tailored to tourists so it seemed to be more authentic French. The cruise was nice, though my fiance was wearing a dress which left her a little chilly, so make sure you bring something warm for the cruise. All in all the night ended out very romantically and the driver was extremely knowledgeable and very nice. I would recommend this to anybody that is looking for a nice evening with their significant other, but do it on your first night in Paris. It's a great way to get your first impression of the Eiffel Tower at night.

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better April 2009

The River Cruise was certainly not "romantic". A few hundred people crammed on a tourist boat is not really romantic. The VW van that was used also was not that special and not in line with the price of the tour. The driver was great and helpful and the meal was good. Overall, overpriced and not really "romantic".

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better January 2009

We had a very nice tour guide, but the dinner was not really not good. The food and service of the restaurant was not up to the price paid for the package.
