Great food, lots of wine, and great views. Hard to get good pictures from inside the boat, but there is a small deck you can go out on and get some pics from there. Or just take a sightseeing cruise during the day.

Romantic River Dining Experience This was our second river boat dining experience in Paris, the first time we had such a great night we decided to do it again. We used Bateaux Parisiens. We paid extra for a window seat (well worth it) and opted for the second to the highest level of meal option (also worth it). The service... More

The boat was poorly designed to see anything unless you had the window seat. 90% of the passengers were 15 year olds on a class trip with no interest in seeing the sites and the noise was deafening. The company should have out them on a boat by themselves. What was supposed to be a romantic evening cruise was dreadful... More

It was a relaxing cruise and we enjoyed it; however, there are areas that could be improved. First, having to hold a telephone like speaker for the commentary is not particularly enjoyable. Easily a set of ear plugs would have been preferable. Second, the boat needs to be equipped to allow for commentary on the outdoor upper deck. Price is... More

We decided to go to sightseeing tour. We thought that we can buy tickets and that we will get the time for our ride and that we can do something else in the meantime. It is not like that at all. You buy a ticket and you go the line. We had one departure time written on our tickets, but... More

As it was a lovely sunny day, on boarding we went upstairs to the open air seating above. After the boat departed the quay, it was announced that only those seating indoors downstairs would have commentary, and those upstairs would have music only. I feel that this is something that passengers should be made aware of before they have settled... More

Lovely fun boat ride down the beautiful River Seine. Never felt seasick....great for families. No criminal element. Kids said it was the best sightseeing in Paris.

We had a great time on ther dinner cruise and went for the window tables option ('privilege' I think it was called). Staff are very friendly and attentive. Our waiter was Yousef who was charming and very helpful indeed. The food was excellent and the wine kept on flowing and was of good quality (2 bottles, one white and one... More

We booked dinner and a cruise with Bateaux Parisiens well in advance but the whole experience was such a disappointment. We had travelled from London that day so we looking forward to a relaxing meal in a stunning location on the Seine right next to the Eiffel Tower. When we arrived at the Bistro Parisien for dinner we were told... More

I loved the food and the atmosphere on the boat. with our window seating, we could really enjoy all the sites on each side of the boat. the cruise lasts about 2,5 hours which is enough time to see the monuments, enjoy your food and still have a relaxing. I think the cruise is quite romantic and shows you the... More
