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!

Camera

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!

Sandwiches

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?

What People Are Saying About Seine River

Perfect for last minute travelers with little time to spare

We tried to book Eiffel Tower tickets a few days in advance on the website which is nearly impossible as they are sold out at least a month in advance; however, I happened to follow the Ad on Google and found this wonderful website that offered very good prices on skip-the-line packages. We bought the Eiffel Tower Summit, Louvre, and Cruise package and after skipping all of the lines with our crabby littles (two under 3) we were thankful we paid the slightly increased prices for that advantage. I would recommend this package for everyone and believe 100% we got our money's worth.

Skip the Line: Eiffel Tower Summit, Louvre, and Cruise Reviewed by a GetYourGuide Customer, 12/05/2016

Great overall package for visiting Paris.

Canal cruise at night was beautiful. Eiffel Tower tour was relatively expensive for what you get and crowded with security delays even with this pass. Louvre tour would have been more interesting with the audio pen guidance.

Very simple tour, fantastic guide and the cruise was a real treat!

A must do in Paris, even if your time over is limited. Skipping the lines is a real benefit, especially on a busy weekend or season. The ticket to the river cruise is an experience in itself, highly recommend taking the cruise around 4-5pm (around sunset time)

Easy and simple way to experience and skip lines in Paris!

Great tour guide at the Eiffel Tower, easy and simple experience getting everything situated!

Super fun and informative tour of Eiffel tower!

Totally recommend it based on three key aspects: I) Skip the big line II) Super fun and friendly guide III) Nice to get the history and all info you ever wanted to know about the Eiffel tower. My wife and kids loved it. Cheers
