Top sights in Paris
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.
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!
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.
Corny? Perhaps. But hey, it's Paris! Why not check out some other tour options to round off a romantic day?
A Seine river cruise can cost anything from €10 per person for a basic boat tour to upwards of €200 for a candle-lit, gourmet dinner cruise by night.
776 kilometers. Oh wait, you meant the cruise? With dinner and entertainment you could be looking at up to 4 hours, but if you don't have that kind of time to spare, the less expensive ones should only take an hour!

What people are saying about Seine River
We booked for 8am guided tour and instructions were to arrive 20 mins before that. We arrived 30 mins before as not sure of location and dozens of other visitors assembled. Guide Stefan didn't turn up until 10 past 8 with no apology. He escorted us to the Eiffel tour, provided tickets, put us in a queue where we waited another 1.5 hours which wasn't great as we were expecting a skip the line service for the price. Inside the tower was great but we couldn't see the guide so missed some of his commentary. Views were great but I think It's better to view Tower from ground than other way round. Seine cruise was actually more enjoyable and less queuing. Price on tickets provided by guide for Eiffel Tower to top level was €25 so rather overpriced for not much service.
Overall, my experience was good. I didn’t use the audio because I didn’t know I needed to provide my own earphones, but the tour was still nice without the audio guide. In just one hour, I was able to see a lot, which was nice. I would recommend to sit on the very top of the boat, as you can get a full 360 view of the sites around.
My daughter was sick the day of our scheduled ticket and I emailed and they responded right away! And they let us use the tickets the following day. So sweet! We hopped on at 10pm. Perfect timing for sunset and to see the Eiffel Tower sparkling at night!
A great way to start your day and miss the huge crowds. Was and enjoyable experience and we could take photos easily and the views were not instructed by people. The summit option was wonderful, and the added bonus of Seine cruise was lovely.
Hugo was great, very helpful. Everyone in the 3-group party neglected to tip as we got to the lift line quickly. I should have been better prepared to recognize his service.
