What You Can Expect

Seine River Cruise: Bateaux Parisiens Sightseeing Cruise with Dinner and Live Music

Enjoy the wonderful views of Paris at night from your dinner cruise along the Seine

Meet your host near the Eiffel Tower and step on board your Bateaux Parisiens sightseeing boat for your 3-hour cruise up and down the River Seine. Enjoy a glass of Champagne as an aperitif once you have been shown to your table in the center of the boat.

Designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the riverbanks that line Paris’ River Seine are home to countless attractions and iconic Paris sites. Pass Notre Dame Cathedral, the Latin Quarter and the Parisian Statue of Liberty, as well as world-famous museums such as Musée d’Orsay and the Louvre. Enjoy the views all around from the glass roof and large panoramic windows as the boat cruises from the Eiffel Tower to La Bibliothèque Nationale and back.

While watching the bright lights of Paris as you cruise by, your host will take your order and then serve an exquisitely presented 3-course meal. As a band entertains you with live music, dine on fine French cuisine from an à la carte menu and relax with wine and mineral water.

After gliding down the Seine, your sightseeing boat returns to the quay near the Eiffel Tower where your cruise ends.

Customer Reviews

5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2015

This was a wonderful experience. It was still daylight when we started and then when it got dark all the lights of Notre Dame, Louvre and other beautiful building were on. It was very romantic and we were able to get lots of pictures. The food and wine were very good and the staff very attentive. Definitely recommend this tour. We would take it again when we come back to Paris.

We had done this river cruise about thirty years ago and this one was just as good as the first. Thank you all.
