You catch the boat just opposite the Eiffel tower. The boats leave every 30 mins or so all day of the week. I did the late evening cruise as I wanted to see Paris "by night". The cruise cost 14 Euros and lasted around 1 hour. I took the 9.40pm one. One suggestion to the company would be to provide... More

The tour lasts about an hour. It travels east on the Siene river, starting near the Eiffel Tower till Notre Dame Cathedral. This jourey is walkable in about 2 hours. The sights from the boat is good. I noticed that this company has different configuration of boats. Some have 2 levels with the top level open seating, I.e.no roof, other... More

We tried this one for a different trip, had done the bateaux mouch several years ago. the commentary is only downstairs so if you want the views you miss is upstairs, but it gives minimal history, doesn't announce or give history of the bridges and hardly gives background other than names of buildings.

An evening boat ride on the Seine was high on the list of things to do for my wife and I on a recent trip to Paris. There are a few companies that have trips on the Seine and we went with the company recommended by our concierge. We decided not to go on a dinner cruise as we didn't... More

Expensive yes but you will never forget it. Food, wine, staff all first class, watching Paris glide by is quite magical, watching all the lovers enjoying the evening sitting on the bank with their picnics and vino was lovely, a great night out and one you should not miss. get a window seat, its worth the extra.

This is a tourist cruise that needs to be done when in Paris. However, do not spend 200 euros plus on dinner, it is not worth it. The service is bad, the food is average, and you can see much from the boat depending where they seat you. It had not rained in Paris for several days when we took... More

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
