5 things to bring on a Seine river cruise

The Seine might be one of the world's most scenic urban rivers, flanked by exquisite monuments such as Notre Dame and the Arc de Triomphe. A cruise is the best way to enjoy it as long as you don't forget anything essential! Here's what to pack.

Windproof jacket

Even if all's calm on the City of Love's streets, its river is exposed and highly susceptible to strong winds. Even in summer you might need a good jacket!

Sun screen

Again, the Seine is exposed and so are you. If you're not seeing the sights by night, you'll want to see them on a sunny day. Keep yourself protected!


Many of Paris' most famous sights can be seen by boat, opening the door to some fantastic photo opportunities. If you have them, enhance the experience by bringing binoculars too!


Unless you're taking a dinner cruise of course! But even then you should think about bringing your own water bottle.

Somebody you love

Corny? Perhaps. But hey, it's Paris! Why not check out some other tour options to round off a romantic day?

The hotel had all we needed and the people very caring the food was excellent met some nice people at the meals The Eiffel Tower was amazing went to the top by the lift Wednesday we went to Disney and had a good day there. In all the weather was sunny and warm and that was a help in enjoying the break

Best way to see the city with kids, period.

The Paris bike tour was simply the best way to see the city with Our four children (5,7,9,11). We got to see all of the sites as well as learn some very interesting things about everything and we saw. Sometimes it's hard to keep the attention of our children when we're trying to give them a cultural experience. The Paris bike tour was simply the best way to accomplish what we intended. Thank you for a wonderful experience!

Very well done. The left promptly at 2030 and returned at 2134.

Beautiful seeing Paris by night from the river! And being able to see under the bridges we'd crossed was really cool too.
