What to expect

Enjoy Paris from the sky and from the river with this combo offer including skip-the-line tickets to the 2nd floor of the Eiffel Tower and a sightseeing cruise on the Seine.

Skip-the-Line Eiffel Tower tour - (1.5 hours)
Choose from a morning or afternoon start time, and then meet your guide to start your Paris Super Saver with a stroll through the gardens at Trocadéro. Hear tales of the Eiffel Tower as you walk, and learn about its creation for the International Exposition of 1889, a world fair. Hated by Parisians in its early days, the tower eventually won over the hearts of the locals and it became the city’s most feted icon.

Skip past the tower’s long entrance lines with your fast-access ticket, and head straight up to the second floor by elevator while enjoying anecdotes and tales of history about the Paris landmarks below your feet. Walk around the viewing gallery with your guide and soak up sights of Champs de Mars and Montparnasse Tower. If you have purchased summit access you'll continue to the third floor. When you have enjoyed your fill of the Parisian panoramas, travel down the elevator to ground level.

Your next experience has a flexible start time, meaning you can simply walk to the prearranged meeting point — roughly 656 feet (200 meters) from the tower — at a time that suits your schedule.

Seine River Cruise - (1 hour)
Hop aboard your sightseeing boat at the water’s edge, and relax out on deck or in the lower saloon as you cruise along the famous river. Cutting through the city, the Seine takes in some glamorous sights and its Paris riverbanks have been awarded UNESCO World Heritage status. Listen to entertaining commentary as you cruise and gaze out at sights such as the Louvre, an iconic building that’s home to some of the world’s most celebrated artwork. Marvel at the attention-grabbing façade of La Conciergerie, the former royal palace and prison that once housed some of the country’s most important political prisoners such as Marie Antoinette and Napoleon III.

After an hour on the water, cruise back to the start point where your tour finishes.
