What You Can Expect

Skip the Line: Notre Dame Cathedral, Tower and Ile de la Cite Half-Day Walking Tour

Skip the Line: Notre Dame Cathedral, Tower and Ile de la Cite Half-Day Walking Tour

At Notre Dame Cathedral you will not only visit the interior of the church, but will also have the opportunity to climb the famous bell towers for astounding views of Paris alongside the gargoyles that have protected the Notre Dame for centuries.

Your small group tour begins with a fascinating walking tour of the famous Ile de la Cité, in the heart of the Seine River, home to kings, revolutionaries and those famous gargoyles.

Here you will see why Victor Hugo selected Notre Dame as the setting for his widely acclaimed novel, The Hunchback of Notre Dame. The flying buttresses, menacing gargoyles, soaring spires, monumental organ and imposing bell towers are as beautiful as they are ominous.

Experience history unfold as your expert guide recounts the amazing history of Notre Dame from antiquity to today on this incredible journey into the heart of medieval and Gothic Paris. For a dramatic finish, we will skip the long line to climb the 411 steps to the Notre Dame Bell Towers for a gargoyle’s-eye view of Paris. The long queues can last up to two hours, so skip the line and go to the head of the tour.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2014

Tour was wonderful and our guide was great. We did a small walk of the island and then was taken to Notre Dame. The guide provided various minute details of architecture and history and all the while she was a very informative. The Skip the line is for the entry to the towers, where you need to ascend ~400 steps in a narrow spiral stairway to the top.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2014

This tour was awesome. We had audio head-sets, and got tons of information on Paris itself, and Notre Dame. Skipping the line to go to the top was alone worth the money. I highly recommend this tour.
