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

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.

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

Was very enjoyable to show Dad the sights from the water.

A huge kudos and thankyou to your company. We were booked to do an Eiffel Tower climb, but missed it due to a delayed flight. Your correspondent on WhatsApp was extremely helpful in offering us alternatives, and booked us on this cruise at short notice when it became clear we were not going to get up the tower. Their compassion and assistance made a stressful situation all good for us and I would have no hesitation in recommending your company to anyone else. One word for those looking at either the Eiffel Tower or the Seine River Cruise ... do not plan to take your suitcase with you as they will not allow it. Tower security said no point blank and offered no suggestions. Boat security at least gave us a place up the road where I could store it.

This was a great way to get around Paris and see the best of the sites

This was a great way to get around Paris and see the best of the sites. The boat runs a regular and reliable service from convenient points. Staff were very helpful with RER and Metro directions as well as with placed to eat. Loved it and will be booking again when we are back in Paris!

Amazing experience, with fantastic guides.

We had a fantastic night of sight seeing, music, champagne and of course the Moulin Rouge show. All the guides were very knowledgeable and helpful and we had an amazing evening in Paris. Thank you from the Nettleton’s on our 30th wedding anniversary

Excellent adventure but there was no air flow on the batobus.

The pickup process was easy, efficient and swift. The stops were well spaced and the timing great. However, there was no separate air flow on the boat so it was unbearably hot when we went as it was a warm day. Fans would make a world of difference.

Excellent way to see a lot in a short time!!

Our tour guide was awesome! We were able to see everything we wanted to see in Paris and more! We did the two hour ride since we had our daughters with us, but if it’s just adults I could’ve done longer! Great way to see Paris in a new perspective!
