Save Time and Do More

Skip the famously long lines and ascend straight to the second floor of the tower with your guide as they point out the highlights of the City of Lights, as Paris illuminates below you and other famous lighted monuments become instantly visible against the darkening sky.

Cruise Seine Evening

Make the Most of Your Night

Enjoy a relaxing one hour cruise on the Seine River and view the most beautiful monuments of the city lit up for the night.


One of mankind’s most celebrated engineering marvels, the Eiffel Tower was originally constructed in 1889 for the World’s Fair. Her iron lattice now stands proudly as France’s most beloved icon. The tallest structure in all of Paris and the most visited paid monument around the globe, it towers above the city skyline at 1,063 feet and City Wonders can bring you there just in time to see day become dusk above the City of Lights.

Learn of its history, building challenges and have extra time to explore the Parisian pinnacle before boarding a scenic one-hour Seine River cruise. The most comprehensive and enjoyable way to get both experiences wrapped into one amazing tour.

Experience the beauty of the Eiffel Tower in the magical evening light. As the sun sets, she illuminates high above the city, a glittering emblem of Paris, the City of Light. Your English-only speaking expert local guide will show you the best views of this world famous icon, regaling you all the while with stories from her past and present.

You will then be lead past the famously long lines and whisked straight up to the second floor of the tower, where you will enjoy spectacular views of the city as it lights up for the night. Spot the city’s other famous illuminated monuments from your bird’s-eye viewpoint, with the help of your guide who will point out all the major sights. 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.

After your unforgettable Eiffel experience, enjoy a leisurely one hour cruise on the Seine River, leaving from the foot of the Tower. Glide along the postcard-perfect river, and admire the most beautiful monuments and bridges of Paris illuminated for the evening. Relax and enjoy as you watch the people and places of Paris float by on a tour like no other, a City Wonders tour.

Important notes

  • Due to increased security measures at many attractions some lines may form on 'Special Access' tours.


  • Do we have Skip the Line Access to the top level of the Eiffel Tower?

    Our Eiffel Tower tours include access up to the second level, which gives you a fabulous view of the city of Paris. They do not include access to the summit but our guide will show you where you can purchase a separate ticket to the summit directly at the venue at the end of the tour.


  • I am not familiar with the meeting location. Can I just meet the guide at the Eiffel Tower?

    The guide will not be able to meet you directly at the Eiffel Tower. You will receive a voucher with clear instructions on how to reach the meeting point and you can contact our Customer Care Team if you have any questions or require further directions

  • Can I take the Seine River Cruise at another time or date?

    This is possible, depending on the tour you have booked. Both our “VIP Eiffel Tower tour with Seine Champagne Cruise” and our “Moulin Rouge with Skip the Line Eiffel Tower and Seine River Cruise Experience” start with the Seine River cruise, which means that the cruise can only be done at that time. However, for our other Eiffel Tower tours with Seine River cruise, your guide will give you the tickets for the cruise on the day of your tour and you will able to use them at a later stage during your stay. Tickets for the cruise are distributed once the the Eiffel Tower portion of the tour is complete.
