Absolutely loved the Eiffel Tower, Paris Moulin Rouge and Seine River Cruise. The meal at the tower was of a high standard, and we sat with excellent people from America. The Moulin Rouge was marvellous, the costumes, the performance very nice and the river cruise was particularly nice because we had seen most things in the daylight...the evening lights made it quite spectacular
It should be noted that there is a lot of walking in this tour and there are stairs to be dealt with as well.
We started our tour by entering the Louvre from the underground shopping mall that we had no idea was even there. As we were led by tour leader, we entered free of the normal queues. We toured the Louvre for a good couple of hours and we did see the Mona Lisa and the Venus de Milo along with hundreds of other items. The museums at the Louvre are worthy of days of touring and can not possibly be accomplished in just two or three hours, but you do get a taste of what there is to see.
We made our way to the River Batobus where we began our river cruise up to the Eiffel Tower. When we got to the Tower we again skipped past most of the queue of people at the Tower and went straight up to the 58 Tower Restaurant where we had a very nice lunch. We were given another 90 minutes or so to eat lunch and walk up the Tower stairs to the sightseeing level you can actually pay an additional fee to take the elevator that takes you to the very top if you wish and if there is time. After the Tower, we got back on the River Batobus and slowly made our way back past the Louvre and then up the River to the Notre Dame Cathedral were we were provided with a very nice tour of the Cathedral.
We then opted to walk back to our hotel from the Cathedral so that we could get ready for our Seine River Cruise tour that we were taking that evening. The rest of the tour got back on the Batobus and returned to the River Batobus original departure point near the Louvre. This was just a couple of blocks from the original morning meeting point.
We booked both the daytime Pairs in One Day Sightseeing Tour and the Seine River Cruise, Paris Illuminations and Dinner nighttime Tour all for the same day. That's a lot of tours for one day but we felt that it was worth it.
Overall, we felt that this was a very nice tour and we highly would recommend it to others.

Fantastic tour!!! Worth every cent. Well organized, good food, lovely guides. Moulin Rouge is a must in Paris!! Eiffel Tower was awesome! We chose the Seine River River cruise dinner so that we could go to top level of Eiffel Tower - the lines to get up are big! Need the full hr and 1/2 to explore.
We could have never seen so much of the top toursits spots in one day had we done it on our own. It was well packaged together with a wonderful relaxing boat cruise along the Seine River connecting all the top 3 destination Lovre, Eiffel and Notre Dame. 2 of 3 tour guides were very personable. The first one was very well informed but seemed a less accomodating of those of us who had small children. The lunch at Eiffel at Cafe 58 was excellent it was part of the package. Overall a fantastic experience. Highly recommend to those who would visit Paris with time crunch like us.

This is a great way to see Paris and it gives you an idea of what sights you will visit on the rest of your trip. The bus has four routes Paris Grand Tour , Bastille Bercy ,Montmartre Grands Boulevards , Montparnasse Saint-Germain and the Seine river cruise has one route.Easy to transfer between the different routes. There is so much to see in Paris and it helps you get to many attractions when you are short on time. I would highly recommend this combo ticket.
Highly recommended. We really enjoyed using this Seine River Hop On Hop Off Cruise.
This is a very romantic tour for couples. Dinner at the Eiffel Tower and the Seine River Cruise were super. We enjoyed the show, but it went on for a little longer than we would have liked.
This was definitely the highlight of our 5 day trip to Paris. Great service and food was good. We paid for Premier and sat at the front of the boat, although our sunshade above us was broken and we asked to be moved out of the sun. It was a very hot day. I would happily recommend this cruise as the scenery along the river was lovely. Fantastic way to enjoy lunch along the Seine.
Fantastic way to see Paris. Started the 3pm tour just 2 hrs after arriving in the city. Our guide Maria was wonderful! By the time 7pm came, the jet lag hit us. They were kind enough to let us do the evening bike tour and the Seine River Cruise the next evening. Perfect...what else can I say?
Excellent!!! Skipping the line at the Eiffel Tower alone was worth it! The dinner and drinks that were included were delicious! The Seine River Cruise was perfect after dinner giving you time to relax and take in the city sites from the river. The sun was setting as we were returning and we had the chance to see the Eiffel Tower all light up, absolutely breathtaking!! And to end the night with an electrifying, sexy Moulin Rouge show just made it complete!
Great way to see 3 of the popular tourist attractions in Paris. Enjoyed talking with people from other parts of the world during dinner at the Eiffel Tower. We also had a great night for the evening Seine River Cruise and saw a beautiful sunset behind Notre Dame. And, of course, everyone needs to experience the Moulin Rouge Show. We really appreciated the tour company dropping us off near our hotel after the late show.
This tour was EXTRAORDINARY !! From dinner at the Eiffel tower... The BEAUTIFUL Seine river cruise.. We were So Blessed to have an Amazing choir from Canada singing on our cruise up the Seine..To the MAGNIFICENT Moulin Rouge !! What a SPECTACULAR SHOW..Exceeded our expectations !! What a way to finish our last night of a six week tour in Europe !! LOVED Everything about this tour..Would do it again !!
I would highly recommend this tour, the food was delicious, the service outstanding and the cruise on the Seine river just beautiful with all the lights and the Eiffel Tower and other buildings all lit up. They also had 2 excellent singers entertaining us all night. I would certaintly do this again, it was lovely.
Excellent Experience. Excellent Food. and Excellent live entertainment,
This cruise gave a perspective of Paris those that don't take the cruise will miss.
Aside from vacationers migrating there the locals use the Seine river as a meeting place.
There are large boats used a bars and restaurants. We saw people playing music and three groups dancing on the banks of the river.The Seine river is kept clean and you can see the people of Paris are proud of that river.
Excellent trip. Not sure if we got on the right buses as they were the Big Bus tours but still were OK. Only 9 stops but near all the major sights. We had the 2 day pass including the round river cruise along the Seine. Traffic at times a bit horrendous but still worth doing.
This was a great tour. The live tour guide was excellent, the bus stops were clearly marked, and the bus went everywhere I'd like to go. I highly recommend the Seine River Cruise, too. It took a while, but it was a nice break in the action.
Loved the seine river hop-on hop-off sightseeing cruise in Paris. Relaxing and worth it! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
the cruise on the River Seine was the highlight of our trip. The food was amazing, the staff were brilliant, and I would highly recommend it. Seeing Paris at night, with good food and music what more could you ask. We would definitely do it again.
Our tour guide was very personable and informative. The Seine River cruise was on one of the smaller sightseeing boats, so we got a great view of the City from the water. Dinner wasn't bad, but not impressive, either. Paris by night was beautiful. Our guide really gave us a great tour. Worth the money
I've done a few excursions through many different companies and this was very nice. It was a large group of over 80 people and I think everyone had a good connection with the guide. She was very professional and added value and fun to the experience. Dinner was nice, the VIP service to 58 Tour Eiffel was a pleasure having seen the crazy long lines, and the Seine River cruise was a treat. I would redo to anyone to be their early for the cruise, you really want a seat on the outside of the boat for the best photo opportunities.
Doing what: Eiffel Tower Dinner and Seine River Cruise
My girlfriend and I experienced the cruise on Saturday 16th May 2015 and can honestly say it was one of the highlights of our stay in Paris. The cruise lasts just over 2 hours and takes in all the sites of the River Seine. From the minute you step on your boat, ours was the Cristal, you are made to feel welcome by really polite staff who couldn't do enough to help any needs you may have. The food was excellent, the wine very good and after the bottle of white and red we had included in our package, was slightly tipsy by the time we got off!! The boat itself was immaculate, a real 5 star experience that I would recommend for either couples of families alike!!
This is a must two day hope on hope off and the seine River cruise. We would even recommend to do a third hope on hope off later in the week. We loved the Seine River cruise and did it both days. This is a great way to really see Paris. We loved it ! So worth the money. The bus and boat are open until 8:30pm.
My wife and two children 13 and 10 absolutely loved this tour. The day time tour was nice and easy with plenty of stops and loads of information from our guide Cian. The evening tour was a little more hair raising on the busy Paris streets but the Seine river cruise brought an end to a perfect day. Lots of fun, lots of laughs and lots of great memories!
The Seine River Cruise was excellent, the meal was awesome, the waite staff were very professional and cordial. The visit to the Eiffel Tower was breathtaking, beautiful sunset, city view all around, nice shops and enjoyment without the overwhelming crowd press. The Moulin Rouge show was great enjoyed the dancing, the comedy and the musical tributes and the roller skating overall it was wonderful though a bit risque. I recomment that anyone going to Paris sign up for this tour.
This was the highlight of our trip. First of all, when you arrive at the meeting location to catch the coach to start of your adventure, don't skip going directly across the street to grab a quick Sangria. It was the best cocktail we had all week! Dinner at 58 Eiffel Tower was great, however I wish we could've made our own menu selection but overall it was OK. The next stop was across the street at the pier. The Seine River Cruise was average until the sun went down and the Eiffel Tower came alive. What a spectacular view of lights, it was perfect! Back to the coach for a quick trip to the next location which was the Moulin Rouge! I've never seen so many people in line. The streets permeated with maybe 500 or more people inline waiting to gain entry. Fortunately, we were not part of them, because our pre-purchased tour afforded us VIP entrance and seating. And then there was the famous Cabaret Show. It was a awesome display of lights, brilliant colors, acrobatics, song and dancing, and a few surprises don't want to spoil all the fun. The champagne for two was a nice touch while taking in all the festivities. This is a DON'T MISS TOUR.
