Traveler 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!

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.
Great time!

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.

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.
Loved this excursion
Donna_D, Mar 2023
Crew was wonderful. We got excellent seats...took the 2nd tier booking. I think it was the premier. We actually had a 2 seat table right by the window. Great view of the riverbank sites but not of island sites like Notre Dame Cathedral or the small statue of liberty. The food was excellent. We shared 2 bottles of wine between the two of us.
Wonderful lunch cruise
Jayne_B, Mar 2023

More than we expected....
