Return Details

Returns to original departure point
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.

Very disappointed. Expensive dinner for a bad experience. Terrible service in the checking process.
, Jul 2021
Bad expensive experience. First, the lady in the counter for the check in was rude and unprofessional. Slow checking process, and the staff in charge of this are really slow, take too much time and they don't care about the people waiting. Inside the boat, I was really disappointed when I arrive to my table, and it was no close to the window. I pay for a really expensive dinner in the VIP area in the front of the boat, and I received a table in the middle of the area, felt really uncomfortable. That was unfair when I paid 250 euro trying to warranty the best place, close to de window in the trip. The food and the service, were excellent, but not show or live music.
Expensive tourist trap
, Jul 2021
Very slow service (1 hour between courses), average food and waiter never refilled any beverages at our table. Overall was an expensive tourist trap.
Fun but very overpriced.
, Jul 2021
The food was excellent and the trip on the Seine was very enjoyable. The service was marginal because they were understaffed and it was very over-priced for what we got.

Terrible! I want a Refund!
, Jul 2021
So disappointed that I don't think I will use Viator again. The reasons are: 1. Location: Was not sent information on where to actually go for the tour until I called them up and asked. 2. Seating: The table itself was tight, I understand we are on a boat, but thank goodness we were only three as if we were four two people would have been trapped and the table moved to go to the bathroom 3. Service: The service was terrible. While we paid for the highest level, we were actually served last and the waitress was downright unfriendly and unresponsive. Additionally, it took one hour between the appetizer and main course, but then we were rushed between the main course and dessert for some reason, with the server actually taking away a vegetable plate we were picking on (because we were still hungry) without asking. 4. Food: The food itself ranged from meh to inedible. The steak was flavorless, the vegetables were fin, but duck breast looked nice, but was so bitter with a cardomom/black licorice flavor that none of us could even eat it. We replaced it with the vegetables, which were edible but not what we expected for several hundred dollars. 5: Sightseeing: Other than the Eiffel tower, good luck seeing any sights from the river level or even knowing what you are seeing. You get a map, but no announcements or indications of the sights to see. If you aren't constantly scanning, you will miss them. Overall, it was terrible and I don't see myself using Viator again unless I get a refund for ruining an evening in Paris.

A great way to end you day in Paris
, Jul 2021
A very nice evening. We really enjoyed the experience and it was just a great way to end a very busy day of sightseeing. The food was great and the ambiance was perfect. Thanks 👍
Memorable Experience
, Jul 2021
This always a very memorable night! The service was too notch and the ambiance was very nice. The only thing I would change is the quality of the wine that is served. All the food was delicious! I would stay away from the steak though as it was a bit tough. We went with our older teen children and they really enjoyed the experience as well.

Romantic and awesome place for Marriage Proposal
, Jul 2021
The Bateaux experience was very elegant and very romantic. You get great views in the Decouvert option and the food and service option was exceptional. There was a marriage proposal the evening we went and that says it all!
Not sure i would do it again
, Jul 2021
Disappointed, the food wasn’t that great for the price and we had no live entertainment like advertised. We had asked for no alcoholic beverages and a bottle of champagne was waiting next to our table. We could have been at least compensated for price of the alcohol. The service was otherwise very nice and hard working crew.
Not worth the money
, Jul 2021
I would not waste my money again on this expensive dinner. I spent over $400 and the food was ok. The server was not very good. I would eat a nice dinner somewhere else and do a drink cruise or a separate cruise that did cost so much.
