After getting picked up in a comfortable, climate-controlled minivan at your Paris hotel, you'll be driven to the base of the Eiffel Tower – one of the world's most recognizable monuments. The Seine River is nearby, and that's where you'll begin your romantic Parisian evening with a sightseeing cruise.
During a 1-hour Seine River cruise, you'll see the famous sights of Paris – including the Notre Dame Cathedral and Musée d’Orsay – illuminated. Drift along the river, underneath several well-known bridges, as you listen to the commentary on your audio guide to give you context and history for the sights you're passing.
After your cruise, the next stop is the nearby Musée du Quai Branly. Make your way to the rooftop terrace's Les Ombres Restaurant for a 3-course dinner of French specialties accompanied by wine and coffee. The restaurant's location and glass roof means you've got fantastic views of Paris while you dine, including of the Eiffel Tower. The menu varies, but you can see a sample menu from Les Ombres (highly-rated by TripAdvisor) in the itinerary section below.
At the conclusion of your meal, you'll be driven back to your hotel.
