A Perfect Parisian Day

Treat yourself to a perfect day in Paris, experience the must-see sights, and save money with our combination Paris River Cruise and Eiffel Tower Tour!


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 a 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!

Your experience begins with a pleasant guided walk through the Trocadéro gardens offering spectacular views of the Eiffel Tower and the city beyond. Your professional English-speaking guide will regale you with tales of the Eiffel Tower, its colorful history and how, despite all the efforts to stop construction and then destroy it, the tower emerged victorious and became the much-loved emblem of Paris.

Upon our arrival at the Eiffel Tower, your guide will whisk you straight past the famously long general entrance lines so you can begin enjoying your visit right away, potentially saving 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 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 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.

If you are looking for a flexible and unique way to experience Paris’s most important sights, this exclusively designed Special Access: Eiffel Tower Tour with 2nd floor Observation Deck ticket and Seine River Cruise is for you!

Meeting Point

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.
