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.

Anniversary dinner
, Oct 2021
Beautiful way to end our 3 weeks in France (2 weeks river cruising, 4 nights in Paris). Not a good way to start a trip to Paris; they give you a card with identifying markers, but if you aren't already a little familiar with the city you won't recogize them, and they didn't bother our romantic anniversary dinner with loud commentary. Be sure to understand where your table will be (way in front $$$, along the window on sides $$, or in the middle $). We were seated near the front in the middle, which was fine since they turn around and head back so whatever you didn't see traveling up river you see on the way back. Staff was great, food choices and taste was wonderful. Expensive but memorable. Don't waste it taking pictures; sit back and enjoy the City of Lights.

All of it. The food was outstanding. The views are simply stunning. And our waiter was so incredibly charming and attentive. It was a magical evening :)
Taxi warning
, Oct 2021
Someone needs to police the taxis service after the boat tour. We were asked to pay 45 euros for a taxi back to our hotel, exactly the same journey that cost 16 euros, we eventually tried another taxi and agreed to pay 25 euros. When we got to our hotel I questioned our taxi driver why we had to pay 25 euros for a 16 euro ride , I offered him 20 euros instead of 25 and he said I give you a free ride, we got out, he drove off. Bizarre outcome. Be warned, try several taxis, there are dozens of them happy to take you and your money.

Birthday Cruise

This river cruise was nothing short of amazing! I enjoyed the food wine and our waiter. I took this tour for my birthday and I was not disappointed.
Capstone Experience
, Oct 2021
This experience ended our trip to Paris and it was a storybook ending! Food and service were supreme, and the sights were marvelous from the comfort of the boat. Highly recommend the privilege seating with a window table for two.
Lovely way to enjoy Paris by night.

Excellent wait staff. Food was great with a vegetarian option. The one thing that wasn’t explained was that we had to go one place to check in and another to actually dine and cruise.

Fun, Happiness & Proposals
, Oct 2021
Oh my goodness the experience was WONDERFUL! MoMo was a WONDERFUL & FUN server! The VERY best part of the cruise was the surprise marriage proposal from my man!!!! Oh my goodness it was unexpected. It made an already WONDERFUL experience THE VERY BEST!!!! Thank you!
Very average. Better to sail on the river and have dinner elsewhere.
, Oct 2021
Let me start by saying that the views on the river are gorgeous and it is a great experience for couples. However, it is incredibly overpriced. We paid for the front section $500-ish and were treated to ok service and an over cooked steak. They didn’t have any alternatives for my pregnant wife whereas every other table receives a bottle with each course. I would say at most it’s a $75-$100 dinner for 2 people making it not worth an extra $400 for the ride on the river. Do yourself a favor and eat before hand then find a boat to cruise you, perhaps privately, for much much cheaper! Views 8/10 Food 4/10
