We decided to do this cruise on our first day in Paris.
The tickets were a little pricey but the commentary on the scenery of Paris (available in French, English then Spanish) was very good and interesting.
Be sure to que up at least 30 mins before people start queuing on the river front if you want to be sure to get good seats.
If you've ordered tickets online, be sure to show the barcode to the worker in the little booth near the flags of Bateaux Paris (Notre Dam)

We booked the one hour boat trip via GetYourGuide . Very cheap 12.5 euros for one hour, boat is great, very warm inside , we stayed outside for the majority of activity though. Guide spoke fluently a lot of languages . Great experience if you wanna do Paris on a budget. Only remark and the reason why it’s not a 5 star review is that there’s no actual bar , just a vending machine that sells soft drinks only and snacks like crisps and nothing much. Great experience overall , we did it at night time and was great

Beautiful views of Paris from a clean and comfortable boat. The whole operation is very professional and well run. We purchased tickets from the ticket office on the quay as the website wasn’t working for us. Other reviews recommended the audio tours which could be listened to on our own phones on the top deck. However we found it a bit hot and miss as the WiFi it depended on kept dropping out (perhaps an iPhone issue???) also the descriptions were more flowery and poetical rather than interesting so we quickly gave up and enjoyed the view…

We had a very enjoyable boat tour. It was easy to buy the tickets from their website. Boarding is very convenient- practically across the street from the Eiffel Tower so it is easy to pair the two activities.

The bench seating on top of the boat enables you to easily walk around if you want to. On top, the audio guide is through your mobile phone - you connect via the boat’s wifi - so a tip is to bring your own headphones. Inside the boat I think they provide headphones. The commentary is very well done and high quality.

They were very punctual departing and it took almost exactly one hour.

I wanted to experience Paris on the water so I booked the Bateaux Parisiens Seine River Sightseeing Cruise and it did not disappoint me. Looking all the history and beauty of the city from the water was an experience like no other. It was freezing cold that day, so good thing I brought a jacket.

The tour is narrated, but I didn't really need it. I just wanted to experience Paris from another view. Paris feels like larger than life on foot, but on the boat, it felt like you could really see the city in a new way. I loved all the sights and the vibe of being a tourist was very real haha.

If I did it again, I might try the dinner cruise just for a more complete experience, but traveling solo I just wanted a way to absorb the city, during my ride I Facebook video'd with one of my best friends and I felt like we experienced it together. Life-changing.

Do it!

This tour was recommended to me by a tour guide on Sandeman's Paris Free Tour, so I thought I'd check it out. It was very disappointing, not least because of the weather.
The audio guide is subpar. Some devices on the boat don't work, so you have to use your phone, and the boat's WiFi doesn't work well so the audio guide switches in and out. The content itself is lousy. I could not identify many of the buildings that I saw in the night. I had to visit these again after doing my own research because this audio guide was not helpful at all.
We had to stay indoors since it was raining outside, but that means not being able to see much of anything outside. If you are inside, this means noisy crowds and missing looking at an entire bank of monuments and buildings depending on which side of the boat you're seated on. The boat also decided to turn back before cruising past Notre-Dame because of the high water-level. I think it would have been better to have not run the tour at all on such a day rather than skip so many monuments on that side of the Seine.
If all you're looking for is nice views of nighttime Paris without learning much, and don't mind noisy families, this is probably okay but since I wanted to know what I was seeing I was thoroughly disappointed.

According to their website, they are closed due to the government requirement. I had a reservation booked for 13 people and paid $996 US for a deposit and was informed that I could not receive a refund but inky a credit to use by August 2030. What can I do with a credit for 1k in Europe and this virus is going on? Travel is banned and your company is closed? This is very poor customer service. Now I have to waste more of my time to contact my credit card company to dispute the charges when I need this time to spend with my family.

If you manage to get on the top deck of a cruise it's probably OK, but we were inside which meant you couldn't see anything except the banks of the Seine. Eventually we managed to find a spot outside but there was no commentary. So you either have commentary but don't see anything, or see things but have no commentary. Overall very disappointing.

A must do in Paris! This tour takes you past all the main sight seeing attractions accessible by the river (Excluding the Statue of Liberty)
Staff are friendly and speak several languages. Audio description is available by connecting to their wifi, so I’d recommend bringing your own headphones for this. I’d also recommend getting their early, as we arrived just before departure and the entire top deck was almost full. All in all a very enjoyable cruise and at an unbeatable price!

Paris is such a beautiful city, and even more so from the Seine! We absolutely loved the hour we had on the sightseeing boat. We started at The Eiffel Tower and went all the way down to the Ile De La Cite and saw Notre Dam amongst many other wonderful sights. It was very memorable and would recommend it to visitors wanting to see a lot in a short period of time.
