Boat on Seine River with Eiffel Tower

Relax on a Seine River Cruise

Relax and enjoy as you float past many of Paris's major monuments with close-up views – a perfect complement to the birds-eye views from the tower.


Short on time during your stay in Paris and want to make the most of your visit? Want to avoid wasting time in the long lines at the major sights? When you think of quintessential Paris, two strong images come to mind: the Eiffel Tower and the Seine River.

On this exclusively designed tour for the discerning traveler looking for the classic Paris experience – we bring an express guided, special access visit to the Eiffel Tower with a 2nd floor Observation Deck ticket, and a Seine River Cruise, together in the most flexible and stress-free way possible. Choose between our morning and afternoon departures, spending as much time you like enjoying the views from the top of the Eiffel Tower and then choose your Seine River cruise departure at your leisure!

Upon arrival at the Eiffel Tower, your guide will whisk you straight past the famously long entrance lines. Our trademark special access takes us straight inside so we can begin enjoying our visit right away, potentially saving you hours of waiting time. Your guide will lead you through the tower up to the second floor, enthusiastically sharing stories and anecdotes along the way and pointing out the famous monuments below.

You’ll have complete freedom to spend as long as you like exploring. At the conclusion of your visit of the second floor you'll have the opportunity to buy a ticket to the summit if you so wish. If not, 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 your 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! We’ve hand-picked Paris’s best Seine cruise company for you with the best quality service and an enchanting itinerary that takes in all of the major monuments. 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.

We missed the first part...

We missed the first part of the walk, from across the bridge, but Randa did a great job in the tower, both of guiding the group through the safety checks and riding the elevators, and of giving them a reasonable amount of information about Eiffel and Paris.

Galyna was fabulous!
