The cathedral suffered significant damage during the French Revolution and was subsequently restored in the 19th century by the architect Viollet-le-Duc… after having been the venue for Napoleon's coronation in 1806! Whilst it may not be France's largest cathedral, Notre-Dame remains a very impressive architectural monument: 130m long, 48m wide, with a height of 69m for the towers and 96m for the spire.

This was an excellent way to view Paris at night. We were 6 in our group and everyone loved it! It was a bit difficult to find the place as it was in the middle of a bridge but it was a very fun and elegant way of seeing Paris.

A relaxed way to see Paris atractions from riverside and also have a meal, well tasted food and drinks.
• Submitted 07 Oct 2019
Looked at a lot of different cruise options and settled on this, the price was very reasonable compared to others. Was pleasantly surprised with the experience. The food was exceptional. All of the seats were outward facing so, I don't think there is a bad seat on the boat! Dock was easy to find.
• Submitted 04 Oct 2019
Initially I was a little concerned because they had substituted a different boat. It looked nothing like what I had booked. Turns out it didn't matter. The salmon dinner was wonderful. We had a table by the window (we were first in line) and they had a great viewing area on the top deck. Take the night cruise - check the time for sunset. The boat ends up at the Eiffel Tower just when the tower lights up (on the hour). It was our last night in Paris and the perfect thing to do.

My wife really enjoyed it. Wonderful how all the tables have a view outward. Couldn’t really see much of the city but all the houseboats were interesting.

A great experience - excellent food and hospitality, in an exceptional setting!! It was well-organized on board and everything from time tables to delivery of food was faultless.
• Submitted 05 Aug 2019
This was a lovely way to start an evening in Paris. The staff were friendly and efficient, the salmon was delicious, and the views of the city from the river were gorgeous. We particularly enjoyed seeing a different perspective of the Eiffel Tower. My only complaint would be weather related. We were there during the heat wave, and the boat's glass walls and ceilings magnified the heat. The experience was phenomenal, but I bet it would be even better on a cooler day.
• Submitted 05 Aug 2019
I was rather nervous to book this tour because I had seen some real negative reveiws. However I decided anyway to do it. I was so happy that I did......the boat was lovely, the dinner was delicious, and the waiters were very nice. I would recommend this dinner cruise highly for a lovely evening on the Seine River.
• Submitted 05 Aug 2019
I booked this for our first night in Paris. SOOOO glad I did. Didn't have to come up with what to do and it was a perfect way to see the sites we would see over the next few days and get a feel for where everything was in reference to each other. The staff was very friendly. The food was decent. The atmosphere was great. We should have chosen the full bottle of wine. You can buy more tho so it was fine. But less expensive ahead of time. I'd do this again in a heartbeat. But for first time visitors to Paris I HIGHLY recommend doing this first!

Having read mixed reviews about Siene dinner cruises (in general), we didn't know what to expect. We LOVED this dinner cruise! The boat was clean and cool. Our family of 4 were seated in a row, each having an unobstructed view of the sites. The food (3-course dinner) was delicious, and the service was excellent. We also enjoyed the view from the top of the boat. Merci, Paris En Scene!

The food was amazing the you can't beat cruising down the river at sunset. We had a GREAT time and would highly recommend.
• Submitted 03 Jul 2019
Very nice boat with glass everywhere so you can see the sights while dining. The staff were extremely helpful to me as I use a walker and had trouble with the steps down to the dock. The food was pretty good, especially for this price. The dessert was especially good and the chicken was quite tender. The main attraction was viewing the various buildings and bridges and watching people sitting in the grass alongside the Seine. Very nice trip!
• Submitted 03 Jul 2019
I've visited Paris multiple times and never took a river boat cruise, so our family decided to take this dinner one. It was great. Only took one ans half hours with good food, and we saw monuments from this different point of view. And it was very fun to people watch what everyone was doing along the river.
