See Paris’ most recognizable icons in the space of a single tour. Beat the crowds with skip-the-line access to the Eiffel Tower’s second-floor viewing gallery. Then, embark on a Seine river cruise, during which you have ample opportunity to take photos of its riverbanks, designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and admire landmarks such as Notre Dame Cathedral and the Louvre. Multiple departure times are available for added flexibility.

What to Expect

The tour begins when you meet your guide in front of Paris’ architecture museum, Cité de l'Architecture et du Patrimoine. Don audio headsets to hear commentary clearly, and stroll through Trocadéro Gardens en route to the Eiffel Tower.

Your skip-the-line access means you head straight to the Eiffel Tower's second-floor viewing gallery. Learn about the landmark's history, and make the most of the panoramic views, before descending.

Then, it’s onwards to your second experience of the day: a Seine river cruise. Board when it’s convenient for you, as the start times are flexible. This relaxed sightseeing experience whisks you past Paris’ UNESCO-listed riverbanks and their associated landmarks, including Notre Dame Cathedral and the Louvre. Learn more about the city's history from the audio commentary, and take plenty of photos as you go.

The tour ends on the banks of the Seine, near the Eiffel Tower.

Great tour

We had Randa as our tour guide and she was delightful. I guess we could have done this ourselves, but she gave us so much great info about the history of the Eiffel Tower and made it fun for our group.

Great tour but given the wrong information

Shannon was a great tour guide for the whole tour. But sadly may not be aware of the current ticket information. She told us we could down to ground level and for €6 upgrade our ticket to go to the top of the tower. So...More

Great guide - very entertaining

Well worth the "premium" versus buying all the tickets yourself - would recommend it. In our case for two parents with 12 year old and 9 year old.

Fast and full of interest

This is the only way to do it. The queues at the Eiffel Tower were horrendous but we sailed past with our tour guide Anatole. He gave us so much information and ensured we had the best experience of the tower. The river boat trip...More

Only the second floor, but at that point the tour ended and you were free to climb to the top if you wished to do so. I didn't!
