Full description
Enjoy direct access to the Eiffel Tower, and get some of the most romantic views of the “City of Lovers” on a Seine River cruise with this flexible 2-part excursion.

It starts with a guided walk through the Trocadéro gardens, offering spectacular views of the Eiffel Tower and all Paris beyond. Your English-speaking guide will regale you with tales of the Eiffel Tower, and how it emerged victorious to become the much-loved emblem of Paris despite all the efforts to stop construction and destroy it.

Then, take advantage of direct access to the Eiffel Tower and ascend to the 2nd floor, where you will be rewarded with a breathtaking panorama of Paris. At the conclusion of your visit of the 2nd floor you'll have the opportunity to buy a ticket to the summit if you so wish, where you’ll have complete freedom to stay as long as you like.

You can join your guide on the short stroll to the boat dock for the start of your 1-hour river cruise. Alternatively, you are free to linger at the Eiffel Tower and take your cruise later. The enchanting itinerary takes in some of the city’s most famous monuments, such at the Louvre, Notre-Dame, and Conciergerie. After the bird’s-eye views from the top of the Eiffel Tower, the close-up views from the river are a perfect complement.
