Complete Tour Description

When you think of Paris, the Eiffel Tower and the Seine River are two of the first things that come to mind. On this tour, you'll enjoy both with a guided, skip the ticket desk line visit to the Eiffel Tower and a flexible cruise along the Seine. 

Begin your tour with a walk through the picturesque Trocadéro gardens offering amazing views of the Eiffel Tower and the city beyond. Your expert guide will share information about its colorful history and how, despite all the efforts to stop construction, the tower became a much-loved part of the Paris skyline.

Upon our arrival at the Eiffel Tower, your guide will whisk you past the ticket desk lines, potentially saving hours of waiting time. You will ascend to the second floor and from here, have complete freedom to spend as long as you like exploring inside.

At the conclusion of your visit to the second floor, your guide can accompany you to the river cruise departure point, or you can choose to continue on your own. It’s up to you!

Your Paris experience includes an open ticket for an hour-long Seine river cruise, and you can board at the time of your choosing – the dock is just 200 meters from the base of the Eiffel Tower. Your cruise ticket is pre-booked, meaning you’ll skip the ticket line here as well! You’ll see the Louvre, Notre Dame, the Conciergerie and much more. After taking in the birds-eye views from the Eiffel Tower, the close-up views offered on the cruise are the perfect complement.

If you are looking for a flexible and unique way to experience Paris’ most important sights, this exclusively designed Eiffel Tower and Seine river cruise tour is for you!
