What To Expect

Your Paris evening begins near the Eiffel Tower, where you’ll meet your host and climb aboard a luxury Bateaux Parisiens sightseeing boat. Take a seat in the elegant dining room surrounded by large windows and enjoy a complimentary glass of welcome Champagne.

Make your dinner selection from an à la carte menu of classic French cuisine (see Itinerary below for a sample menu). While you savor each of the three gourmet courses, enjoy the vocal and instrumental stylings of onboard musicians for a true bistro atmosphere. French wine and mineral water accompany your meal.

As the boat glides along the UNESCO World Heritage-listed riverbanks of the Seine River, see the famous monuments of Paris bathed in the golden glow of sunset. When darkness falls, admire monuments like the Eiffel Tower, Louvre Museum, Ile de la Cité, and Musée d’Orsay illuminated against the night sky. 

Step out into the open-air deck for a breath of fresh evening air and immerse yourself in the romance of the City of Lights. At the end of your cruise, step back onto solid ground back at the original departure point.

A must do.
Douglas_C, May 2022
Wonderful experience. Wonderful food. Wonderful service. Wonderful entertainment. And wonderful company.
Good and bad.
JesusEnrique_P, May 2022
Far from a “gourmet, and Dresed-up” experience. Folk in T-Shirts, food was very mediocre. Help was nice, views were enjoyable and music was okay.
Wedding dinner cruise Premier 4 dishes with Champagne
Annika_J, May 2022
Very nice boat and we sat at the front of the boat at a round table for two. Cozy and absolutely perfect with very good views. Seine cruise was very good and we had very good weather. We passed many sights but the most fantastic was when we returned to the mooring down the Eiffel Tower which was now lit and sparkling. It was very beautiful. The 4 course Gourmet dinner did not meet our expectations but it was not good. Menu: Starter Snails and French-style peas not good, The main course Guinnea fowl with Polenta we could not eat at all. The guinea fowl was very oily and tasteless, as was the polenta. Cheese was good The dessert Strawberries and raspberries were good. So out of 4 dishes, 2 dishes were good. At dessert, we were congratulated with lit candles by the staff. All drinks were good especially the red wine. Our waiter was very stressful which we thought ruined the atmosphere.
Best views, great food and entertainment!
Thomas_B, May 2022
The dinner, the wait staff, the views and the entertainment were fantastic! Put this on your must do list. We saw couples, girlfriends night out, families, mothers and daughters, etc. All were having a great time.
Great trip
Calum_M, May 2022
This was a great experiece - wont forget it in a long time, so glad we booked it - the sights were wonderful, the ambience was amazing the food and were excellent
Great cruise - duff waiter
Matthew_S, May 2022
The cruise as a whole was great. It was an experience we were happy we booked. It was easy to book, easy to find and you could tell the team were well rehearsed. We watched one side of the boat get served really quick. Their waiter was very experienced. He brought them pre-dinner kir royale promptly, pre-dinner cheese bites and took everyone’s food order within a few minutes. Our side of the boat was a mess. Our waiter was terrible. He was slow, he was tardy, he was confused, he was forgetful. He had lovely manners though. Many covers on our side hadn’t placed orders and hadn’t received drinks. At one stage the maitre d stepped in to speed him up, both looked flustered and then, the experienced waiter stepped in to support while our waiter was mysteriously absent. No one on our side of the boat would have been surprised if he’d been dismissed. We attempted to place a wine order several times and then chased it up with the maitre D. Only he seemed capable of making it happen. We had complimentary wine too, but waited for our glasses to be filled. We felt, if the team had been prompt at this, they’d have made money on wine orders from everyone on our side. The views were great, the food was great but we were all on edge waiting for the next error. The boat had docked and people were disembarking before our coffees had even been served. Would we recommend it? Yes. Can we guarantee you don’t get the duff waiter? No.

Wow of a night!

What an amazing experience! The service was great, the seating perfect, the entertainment delightful, and the food and wine were amazing. We loved the perspective of seeing some of Paris’ historical sights from the glass roofed boat! We will remember this night forever!

Worth it
Kristofer_S, May 2022
Had an excellent tour with professional, courteous, attentive wait staff; good menu choices for much better than expected food; and a sunset dinner cruise down the Seine. What more could you ask for?
Great and memorable experience
Sara_W, May 2022
Celebrating my grand daughter’s birthday. Service was excellent. Food and wine excellent. The waiter brought dessert with a candle and had everyone sing to her. Above and beyond!
Magic Setting for Paris
Ruth_J, May 2022
This cruise was nearly magical. To have the sunset and a full moon rise as we floated down the Seine was so relaxing. The sound of our performers crisp voice with Parisian themed songs and the conversations that were quietly taking place at every table added to the magic.
A perfect Paris evening.
Stefanie_S, May 2022
Beautiful sunset views of Paris from the river, the architecture, the islands, the landmarks. All stunning. Wonderful food, champagne, and wines, live music, and friendly service. Window seating is worth the extra. Highly recommended for a romantic date, with views you'll never forget. We took a G7 Mercedes taxi to and from, and saved the walking for another day, and it was a perfect evening.
A must do in Paris
Monique_M, May 2022
A must do while in Paris. Service, food, and entertainment was stellar. Will do again when I come back.
This was a birthday...
John_C, May 2022
This was a birthday cruise for my wife. To be honest, we were not expecting much more than a pretty cruise, but we were overwhelmed at the quality of the food and the service; they far exceeded our expectations. The live entertainment was a plus. We booked the most expensive option and it was a bargain. Highly recommended. John & Janet USA
Special evening

This was a lovely...
DAWN_B, May 2022
This was a lovely evening. The food magnificent, the waitstaff was excellent and the sights amazing.
A perfect Paris evening!
Julie_B, May 2022
The river cruise was wonderful - obviously incredible scenery, but also a terrific menu, great food, lovely music, and a fun waiter. I wish I could remember his name, it was something like Aminez.
Great views!
Deborah_S, May 2022
The view is amazing especially at the end. Recommend doing it at night! We didn’t get our main dish until everyone else was finishing desert but besides that the experience was fantastic!
Jonathan_J, May 2022
Had a great cruise on the Seine… great food and staff!! It was a great experience that we’ll be sure to recommend to others!
Must do cruise first time in Paris
Alejandra_B, May 2022
