Traveller Tips

I still give five stars as the weather is something we cannot change.
We paid a little extra for the window seat which was worth it, as it made the experience a bit more special.
Highly recommend this for a day event while in Paris!

The elegant and fun river cruise with excellent cuisine!

There are many river cruises in Paris but this one served a great lunch, not just food but a delicious formal meal but still flexible with our toddler, nice but not "stuffy" great views, great staff, wonderful all around
The highlight of our Paris vacation

This was easily our favorite part of our trip to Paris. The cruise was so relaxing and such great views. We opted to go for lunch and the food was so fantastic. Some of the reviews suggested paying a little extra for the Premier service, which we did, and we were so happy we did. All beverages were included including Champagne, a bottle of white wine and a bottle of red. Our meal had 4 courses. Our teenager is not a picky eater and really enjoyed the meal. There are several options for each course which was nice.
A great way to get a unique view of the city.

The service was most excellent. The food was great and it was a welcomed surprise to see that our wine glasses were never empty.
Very nice afternoon tour

We chose the premium option and we’re happy with the result. Excellent service and great food choices. Clean bathrooms below deck and at the dock. Views from inside were great and despite high winds the boat was stable for the day.
Highly recommend!!!

Lovely cruise and food terrific. Would have been nice if they pointed out sites on river-we had a map, but it would have been helpful. Boat was hot.

Best part of our Paris trip, the boat was amazing, the food was delicious , authentic French cuisine, more wine then we could drink and the service was impeccable. I would recommend everyone for this. We had privilege service so we had an awesome window seat with an amazing view of the sites.

Excellent cruise
Edward_A, Mar 2023
Food and the service were excellent . Will book again next time we are in Paris . Food was much better than I expected.
Brilliant experience
Richard_T, Mar 2023
The whole experience was wonderful. Professional check in, boarded and guided to our table by our waiter for the trip. The table was set out beautifully and the food and drink served were fantastic...the artichoke soup and chicken supreme were divine. This isn't a trip with continuous commentary, but your waiter will call out the key landmarks. But having done a more studious boat trip in New York, I kind of liked the more relaxed format.
Amazing 👑

The service was wonderful! Our waiter was funny and attentive. The food was amazing and plentiful, and the scenery, well, that was the icing on the cake.
Great fun afternoon.
MaryAnn_E, Mar 2023
Great fun experience. The server was very entertaining. He brought everyone together whether they came together or not. The food was pretty good, some dishes just average, but still the whole afternoon was definitely worth the money. Wine was plentiful and quite good.
