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.

Kimberly, that was our thought as well when we were in Paris as we had extra time before we met with our tour guide. While I cannot officially say it cannot be done, the problem would be that you meet your tour guide up at... 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!
