Our guide to Bateaux Parisiens Dinner Cruise

Experience stunning night-time views of central Paris through the glass-top of your boat as you enjoy a relaxing cruise along the Seine and a superb 4-course gourmet dinner.

Embark close to the magnificent Eiffel Tower and sail down the River Seine enjoying views of the wonderful landmarks including Les Invalides, the Musee D’Orsay and the imposing Notre Dame Cathedral.

The boat travels as far as the Bibliotheque Nationale De France before returning back to the Eiffel Tower past the Hotel De Ville, The Louvre and the Grand Palais. The boats are entirely glassed over ensuring an unobstructed view of Paris in all its evening glory.
