What You Can Expect

Paris Super Saver: Skip-the-Line Eiffel Tower and Seine River Cruise

Visit the summit of the Eiffel Tower and admire incredible views of the French capital!

Skip-the-Line Eiffel Tower Tour: (1.5 hours)
Choose from a morning or afternoon start time, and then meet your guide to start your Paris Super Saver with a stroll through the gardens at Trocadéro. Hear tales of the Eiffel Tower as you walk, and learn about its creation for the International Exposition of 1889, a world fair. Detested by Parisians in its early days, the tower eventually won over the hearts of the locals and it became the city’s most feted icon.

Skip past the tower’s long entrance lines with your fast-access ticket, and head straight up to the second floor by elevator while enjoying anecdotes and tales of history about the Paris landmarks below your feet. Walk around the viewing gallery with your guide and soak up sights of Champs de Mars and Montparnasse Tower. After your tour, continue up to the summit on your own by elevator and explore the third floor while ogling impressive city vistas at your own pace. Your ticket allows you to spend as long as you want on the Eiffel Tower’s third floor. When you have enjoyed your fill of the Parisian panoramas, travel down the elevator to ground level.

Your next experience has a flexible start time, meaning you can simply walk to the prearranged meeting point — roughly 656 feet (200 meters) from the tower — at a time that suits your schedule.

Seine River Cruise: (1 hour)
Hop aboard your sightseeing boat at the water’s edge, and relax out on deck or in the lower saloon as you cruise along the famous river. Cutting through the city, the Seine takes in some glamorous sights and its Paris riverbanks have been awarded UNESCO World Heritage status.

Listen to entertaining commentary as you cruise and gaze out at sights such as the Louvre, an iconic building that’s home to some of the world’s most celebrated artwork. Have your camera poised to capture photos of Notre Dame— a UNESCO World Heritage site — and marvel at the attention-grabbing façade of La Conciergerie. The former royal palace and prison once housed some of the country’s most important political prisoners such as Marie Antoinette and Napoleon III.

After an hour on the water, cruise back to the start point where your tour finishes.

Adam was our guide and he was fantastic. He was welcoming and hilarious. We really couldn't not have asked for more and the skip-the-line feature was well worth the extra money by itself.

Great trip to the Eiffel Tower and our tour guide 'Ferret' was superb. Unfortunately we ran out of time to go on the cruise so a hint to others...make sure you have plenty time to do everything as my young son was disappointed not to get on the cruise.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2015

Excellent tour and tour guide. She was so enthusiastic and knowledgable! We did have a little trouble figuring out exactly where to meet the tour and wish that had been more clear street address maybe? we ended up on the back side of the palace which also has steps!.

I highly recommend the tour - have had great success with Viator now in Milan and Paris!

Thank god we had skip the line tickets.This tour was excellent from the tour guide to the river cruise at the end.The information she was telling us was great. Would highly recommend this tour to be included on a Paris trip.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2015

They agreed to let us meet at the tower bc my husband had difficulty walking! The female guide, can't recall her name, was excellent! She did her tour below level two and allowed us to stay on level two so we could hear her. The steps were slippery and she checked on us at every corner of the tower. After the tour she escorted us to the elevator and showed us how to get to the Eiffel 58! She was excellent!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2015

Unless you want to wait for hours in long endless queues, you have to take skip-the-line Eiffel tower tour. Our guide Will the Englishman was very knowledgeable about the History of Paris. Overall, the tour was amazing, and we ended it with a river cruise along the Seine. Really worth it.
