Traveler Tips

A cruise up and down the Seine is a must in Paris, and best done around sunset til dark when one can see the monuments in all their glory.
If this was at least a third cheaper, I would recommend this, but it's very expensive and there's better ways to get a good meal and a good view of the city.

Great after boarding
Lynn_B, May 2022
Once we boarded it was wonderful. The food was good and the scenery amazing. The only thing was they tell you it starts at 8:30 and you need to be there 20 minutes early. So you arrive at a dock with no boat it arrived back at like 8:20 and then you don’t board until 9.
I was not able to board due to some emergency situation , I cancelled the booking and was refunded the full amount. Th
I was not able to board due to some emergency situation , I cancelled the booking and was refunded the full amount. Thanks team viator

I looked for that boat...
juan_f, Mar 2022
I looked for that boat for a straight hour. Missed my dinner and these ppl don’t answer the phone. Very irresponsible
Disgusting Horrible experience!
Rocio_D, Nov 2021
Worst place you can ever book! Captain is a racist and hates people from other countries! He kicked us out of the boat affer we waited outside for more than one hour with rain and cold supposedly because my friends vaccination card was issued in her country (wich makes no sense because every other tourist in there was vaccinated in their countries too) we were already sitting inside and he came in with 3 more people and kicked us out in front of everybody and treated us like delinquents, disgusting racist please be aware! Im sure any other place is better than those racists!
MichelleBowkerWhite, Nov 2021
Food was way better than expected & thus the 5-star rating. Scenery during the boat ride was mostly enjoyable. Warning: 1) Beverages (even lemonade) are not included in prepayment. 2) There are no taxi stands near the disembarking point, so be ready to walk... don't wear high-heals).

The concept was great but the experience not that much
Gregory_R, Aug 2021
The concept was great but the experience not that much. To start the boat was late, the food was served too late. It looked as if they couldn't keep up with the volume of people. When I asked for the manager and complained about not receiving service on time and a mix up on my order, the server came back with an attitude and told me I never asked him for water! Definitely not a place where they accommodate families.

Hello Peggy, We are truly sorry that your experience on board was not good as expected. We do take note of your remark and relay it to our staff in order to improve our service ! Thank you for your feedback. Blaise
Not great
KLesley_B, Aug 2021
Pretty setting, boat left late, no idea of any "sites", no diagram, map, nothing, no way to know what we were passing first night here. Pushy photographer requests made us uncomfortable. About an hour delay btw starter and main, everyone was waiting, Nevis or we're all doing this time come and no explanation poor communication, food quality mixed. Beware, they up charge for even your water without warning, and offer only two mains. Would choose another cruise next time.

A wonderful night but be sure to confirm!
Catherine_L, Aug 2020
The dinner and atmosphere were a wonderful experience, combining the sights, delicious French food, and rooftop photo ops. It is worth mentioning that Viator's reservation did not automatically sync to the staff's table planning. So if you use them, be sure to confirm or prepare to be on standby. The manager, Charlène, really took care of us though and assisted her staff in creating a table for us and making sure we had everything we needed. Her amazing work ethic and hospitality allowed us to enjoy all this cruise had to offer, despite a faulty glitch.

You need to leave lots of time to find the boat as we missed the first sitting, it says capitaine fracasse but the boat was called river palace

Much Better Options
Michael_P, Jan 2020
Told at the dock water level was too high and they would not be sailing past any of the attractions noted in advertisement. No cancellations no refunds offered. Boat is older design, seating is very cramped especially for parties of two. You are essentially 3 inches from the party next to you. Food was cold and a 2/10 at best. Drinks were oddly flavored and watered down. Will be seeking a refund promptly. $150 to sit on an old boat for two hours eating crappy food looking at graffiti and sad house boats.

Wonderful Experience!
Rebecca_R, Nov 2019
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The food and service were delicious and fabulous! The server we had was bilingual, but she definitely appreciated my speaking some French. Only "bummer" was the reflection of the indoor lighting against the window for taking pictures and needing an internet connection to access the tickets, but they do ask for your name at the door. Highly recommend - great idea for popping the question, the staff will assist with any pictures and presentation!

A 2- Star rating. The instructions to meet the boat was flawed. Never met us for the sailing. Ruined the whole evening, had to book another operator that was 5 Star...
Response from Host, Nov 2019
Thank you for your comment. It seems that Viator didn't give you the right adress- then I invite you to get in touch with their services that you can discuss what happened. I hope we'll get to meet you on board that you can actually grade the tour... Mathilde
Bon voyage

Seina cruise
Ellora123, Oct 2019
To begin with, boat was on time as assigned, staff were courteous & helpful. Duration was perfect as it slowly meandered through showing the glimpses of French history. However, variety in food would be appreciated.
Response from Host, Oct 2019
Thank you for your comment. We're happy you enjoyed your cruise and take very good notice of your feeling. As we want to offer the best we offer fresh products which explains the small variety of choices. We hope we'll see you soon :) Mathilde

Absolutely great trip, food and drinks were really good, staff efficient and friendly. If in Paris, should try this experience.
Nice river cruise, gorgeous settings, unremarkable food..
Oyindamola_A, Sep 2019
I was enthusiastic about the dinner cruise and i had a good time. The meeting point was well described, though it was still hard for me to find on the bridge - maybe because i'm new in Paris. The ambience was gorgeous, people dressed nice. The boat was quiet and steady and going up to the upper deck was a whole different experience. However the food was uninspiring, the wine was the highlight of my dinning.
8:45 dinner cruise
Veronica T, Sep 2019
No one around the cruise area had ever heard of this Company nor the ship listed. We walked the doc 2 times the day before trying to find the cruise ship....very disappointing. Just got ripped off!!! Also the telephone number given was a number that was no good...told no longer in service. Do not book this cruise.....wait until you get to Paris to book anything. Crooks for sure!
Response from Host, Sep 2019
Hello, We thank you for this return. Each participant booking with us live receives a boarding pass with a map and GPS coordinates. In addition, all our boarding docks have billboards. It's a pity to put this notation, without having realized your cruise and benefit from our services. Best Regards,
Beautiful Cruise!
msconley04, Aug 2019
The scenery and ambiance for the cruise was amazing! The food was just okay. Service was fine but not as I'd expect for the price.
Lovely boat ride
Erica_M, Aug 2019
It was fun to see the sights of the city in such a relaxing atmosphere. Although the food could have been better (beware the Beef Wellington), the excursion is well-priced - other than the almost 40% booking fee collected by Viator. Next time I will save my money and book directly with the service provider. I won't be booking through Viator again.
