Number of Tour
Begin your Seine River cruise with an early evening pickup from your Paris hotel. Head to the bank of the river — beneath the city’s famous Eiffel Tower — hop aboard your boat and head out onto the gentle waves.
Leave the Eiffel Tower behind you and cruise along the Seine River’s left bank. With the bright city lights dancing and shimmering across the water, take in panoramic views of top city attractions such as Notre Dame Cathedral, the Musée d'Orsay, the Louvre and Place de la Concorde. Turn around at Île Saint-Louis and head back to your starting point, this time taking in the views from the right bank of the river.
Choose from three different seating plans for your cruise, depending on your group size and location preferences. The ‘service etoile’ is for groups of six to eight people and the tables are in the center of the boat. Upon arrival, you'll be served an apéritif and snacks along with wine, mineral water and coffee. The ‘service privilege’ is for a maximum of four people, with the tables sitting close to the window. Your choice of aperitif is included, along with wine, mineral water and coffee. The ‘service premiere’ is for a maximum of eight people and the tables are at the front of the boat. On arrival at the pier, meet your hostess and enjoy priority boarding access. On board, a choice of aperitif is served with snacks, followed by a selection of wines, mineral water and coffee.
Your boat’s glass roof and panoramic windows ensure unobstructed views of the illuminated riverside sights of Paris regardless of your location on the boat.
With the waves lapping gently at the side of your boat, sit down to a fabulous 4-course dinner prepared on board by Chef Gras — an ‘Académie culinaire de France’ chef — and his team. During dinner, there's sophisticated entertainment from a singer and band as you glide along the Seine River.
After four hours on the river enjoying delicious food, live music and amazing views, disembark your boat and hop back in your vehicle for the journey back to your Paris hotel where your tour will come to an end.

Fantastic event for my in laws 50th anniversary. Highly recommend.
A relaxed, beautiful boat ride with delicious food.
Outstanding. Hotel pick-up and drop off efficient and on time. Cruise was a delight. Great food and service.
Absolutely worth the money, everything was wonderful, the boat, the food and the views
The Dinner Cruise was even more than we expected and our expectations were high based on previous reports. Service, food, wines, and the music were superb. The scenery made it a once-in-alifetime experience.
what a wonderful evening! while the weather did not cooperate, it still was a lovely evening! we were picked up at our hotel by a very nice driver who had interesting things to chat about-he explained everything and walked us through checking-all so thorough and professional!! the food is outstanding and I imagine if it wasn't raining, the evening would have been perfect but it was really neat to see the Eiffel Tower all lit up through the rain, nevertheless!! I highly recommend the dinner cruise-oh, and it is a nice touch to present the coupons for half off a sightseeing cruise next time we are in Paris since the boat could not go exactly where it was planned (can't blame the company-high water and important European officials visiting can make changes necessary!)
Special and romantic. Table for two, excellent menu and wine and the view of Paris at night was just awesome. Picked up from our hotel and returned at the end of the night was so important to the evening. It is a must do when in Paris. Must not forget the singer, he was great. We also came home with professional photos taken on board. The memory of that night contnues.

Although this is pricey, it is a wonderful evening. The pick up was great and the boat is beautiful. The meal was delicious and the sight of Paris at night was so romantic. The singer and band were excellent and the singer walked table to table which added to the lovely experience. We had front of boat seats which gave us 180º views. Mid-boat would be fine. The car was waiting when we disembarked.
Everything worked out perfectly -- we were picked up at our hotel right on time and after the cruise, taken back to our hotel, which was great. The cruise itself was quite lovely -- a nice selection of foods and wines, PARIS by night and what could be better than that -- and attentive friendly waitpersons. We were serenaded by a young lady with a lovely voice -- the sound system was a BIT too loud but that may have been because of where we sat -- on a boat it may be difficult to diffuse SOUND evenly. But it was a lovely experience all told.
Really magical, the traverse from our hotel was exciting and hairy in that the traffic and motorbikes were buzzing around us like flies but Alex our driver was as cool as cucumber. Entrance to the Bateaux was as welcoming as we could have dreamt about and the service level superb. Champagne was immediately pressed upon us and our waiter was charming,informative and attentive throughout. Food was excellent and the views across the Seine atmospheric. As darkness fell the outlook became even better as the illuminated Eiffel tower came into view as we cruised along the river. Nothing was too much trouble and even the rain held off to allow views from the prow. Although busy. our seats were well positioned and the band was muted where we sat which was ok with my wife and I. Both cruise and Paris from the Seine are romantic memories we will treasure. The event was a gift from our children and we would thank them and the Viator organisation for a brilliant evening.
This is the second time we have done this trip, and we chose it again, in spite of the truly pricey cost of sitting at the front of the boat at a table for two, because the experience is enchanting. The food was delicious, the service impeccable, and the wine freely flowing. And we very much appreciated the ride to and from the dinner. Having an amazing meal while plying the Seine at night is a magical experience.
Fabulous, from pickup to drop off!
Our dinner cruise on board the Diamant II was without a doubt the highlight of our two week visit to Paris and Northern France. We had a table for four in the front of the boat, beautifully set and perfectly situated for spectacular views of the most famous buildings in the world. Our waiter was superb, the dinner was delicious, the entertainment wonderful and the photographs we could take home will be keepsakes forever. The memories of that Monday evening will last as long as we do! Merci. C'etait merveillieux.
It was great. I had been on one that gave a little talk about what we were seeing. I might have liked just a little talking about which bridge we were going under or which sights we were passing. Not a lot of talking - just a little. I know there was the little map, but it didn't note the bridges.
THE BEST !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!THAT ALL I CAN SAY
Excellent, just totally excellent.
Transport from and to the hotel excellent. Service on board was faultless, and the food was rather good, slightly spoiled that the main course could have been hotter, but it was very tasty. Lovely views of Paris, and the sparkle effect show on the Eiffel Tower was a pleasant surprise. I know we both enjoyed the experience very much.
Tried to dress up for the occasion and were surprised that the stipulation of no jeans, no sneakers were not observed by some fellow diners.
Full moon, good food and wine, very romantic. Food inappropriate for American teenagers.
My husband and I took this tour to celebrate my birthday. What a way to celebrate! We paid for the VIP option which included pick up and drop off from hotel, private 2 seat table, right in the front of the boat with nothing obstructing our views of Paris by night as the boat glided along. The singer was great the food was superb including the wine and champagne. We were told what the buildings were that we were passing by and then at the end of the tour just as we were about to dock, the Eiffel Tower smiled down upon us all and sparkled like magic. Don't miss out on this tour.
So much fun and a fabulous way to start our time in Paris. Food was good and our waiter was truly a gem!
After 3 days in Paris, my adult daughter and I took this dinner cruise.
What a way to spend our final evening in Paris! From the time we were picked up at our hotel until we returned, everything was perfect - food, service, and entertainment. I highly recommend this activity.
Excellent, romantic, well organised and nice food.
We had high expectations of the dinner cruise and those expectations were met and exceeded. The staff were very friendly, courteous and professional. The food was excellent, the wine and champagne were great. We opted for the premium service and it was worth every penny and more. It was the perfect Paris night.
