Get the VIP treatment on this combo tour that gives you the best of Paris at sunset.

Seine River Cruise: Start your Parisian evening with a leisurely stroll through the Trocadéro gardens after meeting your guide. The Trocadéro is adjacent to the Seine River, where you board a sightseeing boat for a sunset cruise. Your ticket is for a reserved seat at the front of the boat, where you are able to enjoy excellent views of all the famous attractions.

Settle into your seat as the cruise begins. Sip from a glass of Champagne as you listen to interesting and informative onboard commentary about what you're seeing on the riverbanks. Float past landmarks such as the Notre Dame Cathedral and Louvre Museum, all illuminated as night falls.

After the cruise, disembark where you boarded the boat, not far from the glittering Eiffel Tower.

Skip-the-Line Eiffel Tower Tour: Follow your guide on a short walk—about 656 feet (200 meters)—to the Eiffel Tower for the second part of your evening tour. Listen to stories of the famous landmark, which was reviled by locals when it was first constructed for the 1889 Paris Universal Exposition. Over time, the tower became not only accepted but a beloved symbol of the city.

Walk right past the typically long lines at the base of the Eiffel Tower and zip up an elevator to the second floor with your guide. Hear more stories of Parisian history as you look at the city's landmarks in the distance below.

When you're ready to bid the view adieu, take the elevator back down to ground level and enjoy the rest of your evening in Paris.
Stop At:  
Seine River
The voyage begins with an early evening stroll through the Trocadéro gardens, where you’ll have a spectacular view across the city to the Eiffel Tower. Your guide will tell you the rags-to-riches tale of how the Tower, once seen as an eyesore, became the beloved emblem of Paris. When you embark, your small tour group will have exclusive use of the VIP area at the front of the boat, which offers uninterrupted views of the city lights. Enjoy a complimentary glass of champagne, safe in the knowledge that your guide won’t let you miss a thing. You’ll see the Louvre Museum, Notre Dame cathedral and the Gothic Île de la Cité: everything that makes Paris, Paris.

Excellent Tour
, Nov 2019
This is a nice way to see Paris at night. The views of the Seine at twilight are beautiful. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. The Eiffel Tower skip the line gets you in faster but there is still some waiting once you get in. The views at night over the city are wonderful. Highly recommended.
Perfect part of our honeymoon

Our tour guide was fantastic. Extra wine and we were permitted to the top of the tower which was an unexpected surprise. Very informative and fun. Truly unforgettable the tower is beautiful beyond words at night.

The twilight was a lit bit earlier, when we arrived the sun was down allready. But the tour was nice and the presentation was also good. A lot of Champagne :)
Excellent cruise and tour

We had the Paris VIP twilight tour so we were able to cruise on the Seine and skip the lines to go up in the Eiffel Tower. Our guide Leye was terrific! He was interesting, fun and informative. It was wonderful being able to skip all of the lines and head straight to the elevator. We would highly recommend this tour.
Great way to spend an evening in Paris

First of all, our guide, Jiane, was amazing. She had great energy, her English was perfect and her knowledge of the area was vast. Although there were many people on the river boat portion of the cruise, our group of about 18 people had a private area, under cover which was nice. The cruise allowed us to see many iconic landmarks from the water and Jiane filled in the history for us. A short cruise (just over an hour) but perfect in combination with the eiffel tower. Our guide brought us to the entrance of the Eiffel Tower, distributed our tickets and gave us a good understanding of what to expect inside. We waited about a half hour in the security line and another 20 minutes for the elevator to take us to the viewing hour. On the way down, you're given the option to stop on the first floor which we would recommend. This area has a lot of chairs to allow some time to relax, enjoy the views, get a snack and just chill before exiting. The evening cruise was, off course, spectacular as you saw the tower lit up in all it's glory. It "sparkles" for about 5 minutes at the top of every hour. Spectacular and a vivid memory we won't soon forget.
Just okay

Finding start spot was confusing. Long walk to Seine. No taxis at eiffel. Guide walked too fast. Should have started at Boat.
Great Rainy night cruise
, Aug 2019
Our tour guide did an outstanding job of entertaining us and ensured we all had a great Champagne cruise. He was also very knowledgable about about Paris and we go see other thing after the cruise. The skip the line at the Eiffel Tower was right on time especially on a rainy night. It was well worth it! Thanks for asking

Our tour guide was excellent! Great way to see the Eiffel Tower! Some walking to and from departure point.
Seine River Cruise & Skip Line Eiffel Tower
, Jul 2019
Our tour guide was AMAZING!!!!! He did an incredible job. Great personality. The snacks on the cruise were limited to Snickers bars. I'm allergic to chocolate so I'd suggest having chips and crackers of some sort available rather than candy bars.
Nice cruise but not really skip the line at Eiffel tower
, Jul 2019
The twilight tour starts with the second cruise which wE very relaxing with brilliant views of monuments along the river. Once done we were given our tickets to the Eiffel tower and told to proceed to the line. We waited for an hour and barely made it into one of the last elevators just before mid night when they stop letting visitors up. Did not have time to enjoy the view from the and many sight were dark given how late it was.
