I am french but never experience before the "bateaux mouches" in paris. I booked the single trip without any diner with my family (4€ saving if your are using the "Paris visit" metro card). Amazing 1 hour trip along the wonderful architecture of Paris. Probably no other similar trip like this over the world. That is a "must" for a... More

The whole idea of having a meal as you tour the various landmarks along the river is so well designed, that I cannot find words to explain it in full. The team from Bateaux Parisiens made it enjoyable and unforgettable right from the welcome, to the lunch and to the music!! Everything waas well timed and worked like magic. I... More

A good way to see some of the sights of Paris by the river, but even if you get a window seat - prepare for the view to be blocked by people standing on the deck outside! The top deck was closed for us due to high waters so everyone was crammed into the lower deck. Thought we had a... More

We decided to spend the evening of my "big " birthday on Bateaux Parisien. We had the top end menu, as its a one off. The quality of the food and wine was excellent, with canapés and an additional cheese course. The evening whizzes by but it's a great way to see the sights and have a gorgeous meal. Thoroughly...

We did the lunch cruise on 6th December. What a wonderful experience. Check in was seamless, boarding was efficient and although we didn't actually expect very hight standards for the food and wine we were pleasantly surprised. The waiter was very attentive and kept giving us little snippets of information about certain landmarks. He also constantly topped up our wine... More

I booked a river cruise and dinner on the River Sienne for our daughters 18th birthday. We took the boat by the Eifel Tower at 6pm for a river cruise for 1 hour. At 6pm in October it was dark and so lovely to see the Eifel Tower light up and sparkling on the hour. We sat up on the... More

We pre-booked a 1 hour Paris River Cruise with Bateaux Parisiens to be taken on 22/11. My Visa debit card was charged in full on 18/11, and I took all of the paperwork/tickets that I printed off myself along on 22/11. When we returned to the UK I discovered that my card had been charged in full again on 24/11.... More

we took the trip as part of a combined ticket with Big Bus, and we should have just done the bus trip alone. The boat was clean and relatively quiet. Although we had a combined ticket and queued for 10 minutes to be told that we had to go into the other queue to 'exchange' our voucher for a ticket,... More

While we were visiting Paris we were given a present of a Seine river cruise and a meal on the quayside under the Eiffel tower. We had been to Paris before and had already had a river cruise so we knew what to expect. The meal was to be served at the boat terminal (the bistro Parisien) and could be... More

Choice of a lot of different cruises. We did the cruise with seperate diner in the bistro Parisien. The cruise was perfect with excellent explenation in many languages. The diner was for the price we paid delicious. You can't have the cruise and the same diner at another place for this price. Everything is to be recommended!
