Hit all of Paris’s must-see attractions in a single day including the Eiffel Tower and Louvre!
You’ll feel like a true V.I.P. when you skip the line at the most popular Paris attractions and look back to see hundreds of people queuing up. Bypass the Louvre’s now infamous lines and view the Mona Lisa, Venus de Milo, and Winged Victory of Samothrace. Walk right up to the Eiffel Tower and climb to the 2nd level while those poor souls who have been waiting for hours wonder what makes you so special. Whether you’re short on time or simply want to knock out Paris’s most popular and time-consuming attractions, Paris Essentials: The City in a Day Tour with Skip-the-Line Eiffel Tower and Louvre is what to do in Paris!
Meet your friendly and informative guide before embarking on one of the most comprehensive Paris tours. You’ll start with a tour of Montmartre and its famous windmills, cobblestone streets, and world-famous Sacré-Coeur Basilica. After a full hour exploring the Montmartre highways and byways, as well as the Basilica, you’ll shoot on over to Ile de la Cité so that your guide can lead you through the Medieval heart of Paris. See Notre Dame, one of the world’s most recognizable cathedrals, before checking out the prison where Marie Antoinette was held before execution: La Conciergerie.
After a short break for lunch, you’ll scoot right past everyone waiting in line for the Louvre before enjoying an informative, two-hour tour of the museum’s most cherished exhibits. Your experience will be enriched by your guide’s enlightening commentary as you make your way through the most famous museum on Earth.
Finally, depending on the entry time you receive for the Eiffel Tower, you’ll either climb Paris’s most iconic monument or take an enchanting Paris sightseeing cruise down the River Seine. If you get a late entry time to the Eiffel Tower, you’ll take the cruise first. If you get an early Eiffel Tower entry time, you’ll hit the waters of the River Seine after you view Paris from the 2nd level of Gustave Eiffel’s most famous creation. Regardless, ending your Paris trip either at the Eiffel Tower or with a River Seine cruise is one of the best things to do in Paris!

So there’s no last-minute rush, please arrive at the meeting point 15 minutes before departure time.
There will be a group size of 15 people per guide.
Gratuities to guides are appreciated, but never obligatory.
No refunds or re-bookings can be provided for late arrivals or no-shows after the tour has started.
Unfortunately, we are unable to accommodate guests with mobility impairments, wheelchairs, or strollers on this tour.
As with all museums and monuments, particular galleries of the Louvre museum may be closed without prior notice and pieces may be removed for restoration or loan. In these cases, your guide will make an appropriate substitution.
The Eiffel Tower is subject to unexpected closure due to strikes or unforeseen circumstances. In that case, your guide will modify the tour itinerary and lead you to Montparnasse Tower. From the roof of this central skyscraper, you will enjoy a panoramic view of Paris and the Eiffel Tower. The tour will end there. Your guide will provide you with a subway ticket to the Eiffel Tower should you wish to admire it from the ground and/or reach the cruise departure point.
Avoid bringing large purses, bags, or backpacks as there will be security checks while entering the attractions.
Notre Dame Cathedral is a place of worship and requires appropriate attire to visit. Both men and women are required to wear clothing that covers the shoulders and knees. Walks is not responsible if your entry is prohibited due to improper dress. The Notre Dame Cathedral restricts access to some parts of the church during mass.
Walks provides tickets with skip-the-line access. However, the Eiffel Tower enforces a maximum capacity limit. On rare occasions, we will ask for your patience as the crowd dissipates so that the group may enter safely.
Your skip-the-line Eiffel Tower tickets allow access to the second floor only. If you desire to ascend to the third floor, it’s possible to buy a third floor ticket at the main ticket desk on the ground floor and wait in line again.
At the tour’s conclusion, your guide will provide tickets to enjoy a cruise on the Seine River. The cruise is not guided, but audio commentary is included. You may use the open ticket for the cruise immediately after the Eiffel Tower visit, later that evening, or on another day.
The cruise on the Seine River may be delayed or cancelled in the case of high water.
Comfortable walking shoes are recommended.
