There are alternate guided tours of the city via the Seine; this is the worst of the lot. At €14, it is one of the more expensive boat rides, during which you may chose a torn / soiled vinyl folding seat to repose while annoying music blares out of loudspeakers. The 'guide' is a recording of minor and questionable 'history'... More

Sitting on top of the boat is a great way to see the Seine and some of the classic sights along it's banks. However the boat was very crowded and we didn't have seats so were perched for the entire trip. May be worth checking for quieter times of day, if there are any. Glad we did it though.

It was our last night in Paris and also our anniversary so wanted a fun and kind romantic way to spend it. The evening dinner tour certainly did the trick! We spent the money to do the Privilège level, and I would definitely say it was worth it - window table just for two. Plenty of wine and food, and... More

I have been on one of the dinner cruises before but I returned with my husband on our honeymoon. It's definitely a lovely, romantic thing to do in Paris and I would recommend if possible that you pay a little more and upgrade to the privilege package as it meant we had a table to ourselves beside the window which...

This was the first attraction we visited in Paris, and we went on the standard one hour cruise. It was a great introduction to the main sights of Paris, allowing us to view the numerous bridges along the Seine as well as the Musee d'Orsay (not to mention fabulous photo-taking opportunities). There is an audio commentary provided, but the audio... More

We decided to do dinner cruise with Bateaux Parisiens on our last night in Paris mainly to see the place in its night glory and from a different perspective and not expecting the food part to be anything special.....well were we surprised......almost all guest diners came dressed up and we were warmly greeted by well mannered impeccable waiters who showed...

The standard 1 hour cruise was included in the Paris Pass. We obtained tickets and joined the queue waiting for the next cruise. It was a hot day and no shelter was provided. Although the passengers from the previous cruise had disembarked we were kept waiting much longer than necessary before we were able to embark. We found the boat... More

Still a great way to see the sights of Paris. Went on a Saturday afternoon with friends who had never been on a cruise along the Sienne. This 1 hour trip represents good value at 13.50 each and on a lovely sunny afternoon its a pleasure just to sit and see some of the lovely Paris landmarks.

We went on this trip for a special occasion and it didn't disappoint. Service was fabulous and food good, just a bit more light to see it by would have been ideal.
