Be sure to check the time of sunset when you'll be there , everything lit up is so beautiful!
A word of warning for ladies, getting onto the boat in heels is challenging especially in wet weather.

Impossible to locate
Vilma_G, Jun 2022
Could not find the terminal. On the app it’s said “7 pm 15” I thought that meant 7:15 pm I guess not. Viator screwed it up. The pick up spot Viator has listed was not the spot the cruise ship picks you up at. There was no sign for the cruise. What a stressful mess!

Cruise and dinner
Juan_V, Jun 2022
The running around trying to find the boat. It needs a more detail instructions on how to get to it. Had a very difficult time finding it.

Slow service
Kristian_H, Jun 2022
The service was extremely slow - we didn’t get our drinks before after more than 1 hour sailing, it seemed a little chaotic, but they were fast to get the payment 😂

Great evening event
Adisa_B, Jun 2022
Before booking I read through the comments and the most part they were valid. Dinner was delicious, however the location is difficult to find and the boat boarded 30 min late. The lights are bright in the boat you can’t really see out of the glass. It’s like they prefer others to look in instead of the customer getting great views. Overall I would recommend nice staff good experience.
James_M, Jun 2022
Beautiful boat but lights inside were so bright they reflected all over the glass and spoiled the view. No commentary as advertised so didn’t know most of the buildings we were passing. Food was okay and lukewarm. Service was SLOW. We were an hour into the cruise and didn’t have any drinks or food yet (apart from the cheese roll (which turned out to be the first course) a bread roll and one bottle of water between two). Because they were so disorganized, they kept us out longer going in circles slowly so they could collect payment for the alcohol. €23 for 375ml bog standard white wine. Finally docked at 12:15am so missed the last metro.

Average to below average
Adnan_A, May 2022
Average food quality, less than average service, no English menu, most of the serving people do not speak English in a major tourist city in Europe!

We were badly let down, Waste of time & Money!!!!!
David_S, May 2022
We arrived at the cruise boat to be told Viator had taken our payment but not paid them andwe were refused entry .... Certainly not an ideal start to our Honeymoon in Paris. We have sent messages to complain and request a refund but had no response .... I WOULD SUGGEST AVOIDING THIS COMPANY!!!!!
Response from Host, May 2022
We are sorry to hear that but we didn't see you at the boarding, please don't spread misinformation online.

Romantic and blissful
Prakash_M, Dec 2020

Sarah_K, Feb 2020

Dodge an expensive bullet
Mrfj, Feb 2020
The food was nice looking, but the taste left much to be desired. The drinks were waaay overpriced (25 euros for ½ a bottle of wine) and honestly it was kind of hard to eat, enjoy the view, and talk at the same time. Felt like too much input at once. Also, a professional photographer pestered us to "just let her take a few photos", but after saying no several times, she skipped our table. Turns out you have to pay 50 euros to keep the photos she takes of you, after she tells you how beatiful you look on them and how "It's probably one of her bests" - Overheard at the tables left and right of ours. Take a food-less boat ride, then eat a nice restaurant afterwards :)

Views of pairs
abigailowens, Jan 2020
Was impossible to find, allow an hour to find this. Food was lovely and view was great. Just very stressful at the beginning trying to find it!!!
Experience of a lifetime!
Olivia_A, Jan 2020
Absolutely beautiful and the most amazing service, food and staff. Perfect end to me and my partners trip to Paris, we was treated like royalty, the food was perfectly cooked and prepared, the staff took photos of me and my partner and we had option to buy the photos, and the view of the Eiffel tower at night was to die for! i would highly recommend and next time i visit Paris i will attend again! THANK YOU!

Very difficult to find. Food not great would be best to just have the cruise and drink. Staff very helpful good seats looking on to the views.
Amusing photographer and a simple menu
Sarah_O, Jan 2020
We were greeted with pleasant staff and seated at small outward facing tables/desks. An enthusiastic photographer asked my boyfriend and I to pose as he took a few photos. The rest of the evening followed with a 3 course meal (vegan options, we asked during the booking) and a smooth trip along the Seine.
Very Bad Experience
shefinj2017, Jan 2020
We where told that we could see 15 sites but they only took us until Eiffel Tower and then they came back and that was it. The only good thing was the dessert they served.
Dinner cruise
Quest39074401794, Jan 2020
Wonderful! Easy to find. Salmon dinner was excellent. I highly recommend this particular boat and dinner cruise. Seating very nice - everyone faces the water. .
Other Tour without city and bad voucher
Jan_B, Jan 2020
On the voucher stand at first a location, which is only for summer. Is very irritatet! I book for one date but why there a meeting points for another time on it? The route in the city wasn't possible about the water. So no tour , no money back. Viator didn't answered me since 10 days.
take another vessel
Lisa_N, Jan 2020
The river was too high for the vessel to get under brides and do the tour, so instead of cancelling it, they went in the opposite direction past newish condos really slow and came back to the dock. The food was good and here's the scam part - some photographer takes everyones photos prints them off, gives them to you and then about 10minutes later comes back wanting 40 Euros for the photos. I would not recommend this particular vessel - especially if you are traveling from another continent like we did. Go elsewhere! We booked this months in advance and no compensation was offered for a ruined evening as we were particularly looking forward to seeing Notre Dame and all the old buildings on our first night so we could get our bearings.
