As mentioned previously, we had advanced booked our tickets which made no difference. We watched as group after groups were herded through to the wait area. The groups were very boisterous and ruined the experience for us. I could not recommend this cruise.

I've taken the dinner cruise now 3 times and it's still a favorite way to show my friends the city. However this time I splurged and paid169 Euros for Premium service and it was very disappointing. Several times I had to get up and ask the waiter for utensils, wine, water. The table behind us was experiencing the same lack... More

I had tried a Seine River cruise before and it was really a good one. Since Bateaux Parisiens was having a promotion with the Paris Visite Card, I decided to go with this company this time and it was a wrong choice. The boat design doesn't allow me to have a good view of the Seine River. You have to... More

Go early so you miss the scheduled groups or you are screwed. Because of the groups and even with our advance ticket purchase, we had to wait for all the groups which then made us wait another 30 minutes for the next boat. Once on the boat we had a perfect seat. Punjab and his selfie indulgence while standing directly... More

I have been to Paris a number of times but haven't never managed to take a boat trip. Now I finally got the chance, I booked the ticket online for the one hour trip down the Siene and was able to choose any time during the date to use it. I thought it was very enjoyable. I just missed the... More

This is a must do on a trip to Paris. We booked a lunch cruise and opted for the Premier Service on board The Onyx. Seated at the front of the glass encased boat we had wonderful views of Paris on a sunny day. The food and wine were exceptional as was the service. Next time we'll take the evening... More

We have done this trip before and it was just about OK. Yesterday, we had to stand back to allow approx 100 children get on first. There were already around 200 (?) on the boat. We found a seat for my wife, but I had to stand. The few seats left were broken. Hundreds of kids sat - I, aged... More

Everyone should book this tour - it was a highlight of our trip. Go with the premier menu option at the front of the boat for the best experience.
