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. While you savor each of the 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.

Absolutely beautiful boat and the food was good. Our server Ismail was wonderful. Slightly squished into our table next to the other couple seated near us.
Fabulous Experience

The entire experience was absolutely lovely. Couldn’t recommend more! There was a nice variety of food options, the wait staff was very friendly, the performer/singer sounded beautiful, and the ambience and views were spectacular!

Great experience
Matthew_T, Sept 2023
Great experience with good food and amazing views. Especially when the tower lights up. Live music and environment was great. Service was good as well as the wine choices.
Wonderful dinner!
James_H, Sept 2023
What a wonderful way to start our Paris excursion. Food, service, ambiance, all were perfect. We booked one of their more expensive options, but well worth it. Private table next to window, 4 course dinner with wine.
Susan_M, Sept 2023
The sightseeing trip was pleasant. We booked the Privilege dining which was quite expensive and we found the food and service disappointing not worth the total cost!

Cruising on the Seine
Hope_T, Sept 2023
We did this on our first night in Paris! It was great to see all of the sights (I highly recommend upgrading to a table by the window!) The food was also amazing! The cruise over exceeded my expectations!
Save your money
Erin_L, Sept 2023
Please save your money & do a day or nighttime open air cruise of the Seine then dinner at a lovely spot in Paris. The glass boat was enclosed & we were not expecting that. Food was below subpar although the staff was lovely, kind & attentive. Getting a taxi, Uber or pedicab after the tour was a nightmare, we walked several blocks away to get away from the throngs of people looking to the same. Taxi drivers will approach you outside of the boat for $50 rides & rip you off, I suggest walking a few blocks away as we paid less than $20 away from the crowds. The only bright spot, aside from the staff, was the view of Tour Eiffel. Other than that I wish I had done anything else on this night.

Beautiful Paris
Nat_G, Sept 2023
Beautiful dinner cruise. Excellent way to end a visit to Paris. The sights were magnificent , the dinner was delicious, and excellent service.
excellent cruise
Kevin_N, Sept 2023
The live singing was great, the people really got into the different songs. The food and service was excellent! Most boat dinners are rushed and a radio is playing for background music. The captain slowed down the boat and turned it facing the Effie tower with the Statue of Liberty on the left side so everyone could take pictures of both monuments in the same picture.
City of lights

The entertainment was awesome! The singer was beautiful and all the dancing, dining and drinking - a very beautiful memory of the boat and so much beauty! Where else in the world but Paris?! Excellent food and service - if you come to Paris do not pass this up. Beautiful river tour with all the extras including waiters that dance and serve all at the same time :-)
