Splendid way to experience and view Paris!
Cami_B, May 2023
Service was exceptional, the views breathtaking and generous amounts of wine and champagne. Food was decent but regardless I recommend the experience and amazing staff.
Perfect Paris
Zoe_P, May 2023
As we adore Paris we consider it as an open museum. Everything is Culture, Tradition, Beauty. The city is maintained with care and pride, the food is superb, the service civilized and respectful. There is that "joie de vivre" all around: Good for the soul and mind!
Dominick_A, May 2023

Window seating with great views of the city! Depart in daylight then return with the city all lit up, especially the Eiffel Tower, beautiful!
Fun experience! A must see !

Absolutely must do!!!
Matthew_S, May 2023
This was an absolute must do! Probably my favorite activity on our trip to Paris. Our server was amazing, he took the time to tell us about everything we were seeing . Food and wine were excellent. I can’t recommend this dinner cruise enough!
Not worth the money
Cathy_N, May 2023
Don’t waste your money. Very little to see. They don’t point out what little there is to see. Food just ok. Service was very slow. For the price, enjoy a meal in a high-end restaurant
Perfect for romantic date night
Sarah_M, May 2023
Ticket is as promised. Food was authentic and higher end. Wine was flowing and the atmosphere was perfect for a date night. Views were beautiful. Great for a romantic date night.
Lovely Seine River cruise
Dennis_B, May 2023
lovely cruise on the Seine -- nice boat, great singer, could food at leisurely pace. Glass enclosed, so you are protected from elements but can take a picture of all the sights of the City of Lights. Though a bit pricey, worth
Avoid at all costs
Yejee_P, May 2023
When the reviews are low, there is good reason. The food was so bad that it tasted like it had been sitting over night. Over salted, over sweetened. It’s a tourist money grab. As someone who dined at many restaurants in Paris, this doesn’t even come close to any of the quality control standards. The sightseeing was quite underwhelming. The only catch was the lit up Eiffel tower by the time the cruise ended. Please save your $$ and time. It’s not just the money you waste. It’s also your valuable time you will be wasting. During the time period of 8:30-11pm, you can do so many other things.
Breathtaking & delicious
Shawna_H, May 2023
The dinner was amazing, I had the Guinea Fowl with polenta & basil, I had the focaccia, & the peach desert & all of it was so tasty! We had a wonderful server named Lucas. He was funny, and kind. The live singer was amazing! The views down the river were breathtaking so you’ll get lots of chances for photos, & the drinks were so good! Highly recommend this trip to all ages, couples, families etc.
Cruising, Drinking, and Having Fun!
Chaquan_W, May 2023
Our server Ines was amazing! She was very attentive and provided EXCELLENT service! Overall, the cruise was lovely. We made it right before the boat took off, and the scenery was beautiful. Highly recommend this. The food was good, and he drinks kept flowing!

The cruise was a magical experience in the city of love. The dinner, music and whole vibe of the place was just out of the world ( specially the sparkling lights of Eiffel Tower at night) . The professionalism and hospitality of stewards and the entire staff made this experience a memorable one. Highly recommend to anyone and everyone visiting Paris even for a day.

Fire the waiter
monicadove1, May 2023
My waiter was horrendous! He never brought me my dessert or entrees until I had to mention he served everyone but me. He was really snide and I wish I would’ve never purchased this cruise.

Dinner, but no Dashin
Norman_J, May 2023
My friends and I had an amazing time on the Bateaux Parisiens Seine River Gourmet Dinner & Sightseeing Cruise. Getting to the location the dinner cruise was taking off from was very easy as was the check-in process. The service by the staff working the cruise was top notch. The food was substantial and delicious. Also, the live entertainment (singer) was really good and interacted with every table.
Best experience in Paris!
Carlo_N, May 2023
