  • Overview & Itinerary


    Enjoy a Paris tour that brings together two of the best experiences together – skip-the-line access at the Eiffel Tower and a Seine River Cruise.

    The Eiffel Tower is the most recognizable symbol of Paris and took more than two years to build. With this pre-booked entrance ticket, you will gain skip-the-line access to the second floor of the Eiffel Tower. Take your time to revel in the splendid views of the Paris’ city skyline.

    Your Seine Cruise ticket can be used any time during your stay in Paris. Hop aboard a Bateaux Parisiens cruise and gaze at the remarkably romantic structures and picturesque bridges that make Paris one of the most magical cities in the world.


    Meet your host at the designated meeting point. Your Eiffel Tower tour begins with a stroll in the gardens at Trocadéro plaza that offers a stunning ringside view of the tower. During the walk, your host will share the epic history of the Eiffel Tower, revealing it’s amusing journey from being the most hated structure by the locals to becoming the city’s most iconic symbol.

    Next, head to the Eiffel Tower. With your skip-the-line tickets, walk past those notoriously long queues and go straight inside, ensuring you don’t waste valuable sightseeing time. Take the elevator to the second floor observation deck, offering spectacular aerial views of the city.

    Your Eiffel Tower tour will end at the second level. If you wish to go to the third-level summit of the Eiffel Tower, you will need to buy tickets on the spot from the second level ticketing counter.

    After spending quality time at the Eiffel Tower, ride the elevator back to the ground floor and head for your one-hour Seine River Cruise. Take pleasure in the scenic beauty of the city onboard the Bateaux Parisiens cruise. See 2000 years of history unravel on the shores of the River Seine as your boat crosses important heritage sites like the Notre Dame Cathedral, La Conciergerie and the UNESCO listed riverbanks. Listen to the multilingual audio guide available onboard.
