The best thing you can do is purchase your tickets in advance and take advantage of Front of the Line! The best choice we made. We did not have to stand in a long line.

The Hop On Hop Off bus and River Cruise are a good way to get a big picture view of some of the main sites and attractions. We only bought a one-day pass, using it to do a drive-by for some of the locations were knew we didn't have time to visit thoroughly, and to get the lay of the land, as it were. It was a good way to see a lot. We had already been in Paris for about five days when we did the Hop On Hop Off, so it provided a welcome respite for our feet, while we still took in a lot of sites, at least superficially.

We found the Paris Metro easy to navigate and used it to get back to the places we wanted to visit and spend time. I'm not convinced that the expense of a 2, 3, or 4-day pass would be worth it since the buses sit in traffic, just like all the other vehicles.

The river cruise is just an hour, but provides a very different and beautiful perspective on many of the buildings along the Seine. We were glad we did this.

The Skip the Line Eiffel Tower ticket name is deceptive. You don't have to stand in line to buy tickets to visit the Eiffel Tower, but you do have to plan your day around the time you are schedule to actually go up in the Tower, and you WILL, most definitely, STAND IN A LINE to get into the Tower, STAND IN A LINE to get into the FIRST elevator and then, if you decide to go to the TOP of the Tower, to buy an additional 6 euro ticket for the top of the Tower, you WILL STAND IN ANOTHER LINE for THAT elevator, as well as STAND IN LINES FOR BOTH DESCENDING ELEVATORS.

If you visit the EIFFEL TOWER, you will stand in quite a few lines unless you simply view it from Terra Firma.

All said, we thought it was worth it, but we were not visiting during a peak tourist time, so the crowds were not too bad. The view from the top of the Tower is unbeatable and to me, worth the lines, and the wait.

We enjoyed the river cruise the most though the Eiffel Tower was great as well. There were thousands of people there and we were hustled off into the elevator to the first level. If you don't enjoy crowds this would not be for you. It was never the less a great day of adventure for us.

We really love doing Hop On Hop Off busses wherever we go, and this was excellent also! If we had to do it again, we'd only do the Hop On Hop Off Bus. We couldn't find the stairs down from the Eiffel Tower and had to pack into another elevator to get down. It would have been enough just to look at it from the outside. Too many people! The river cruise was not needed after doing the Hop On Hop Off bus. They didnt offer drinks or anything and the bathroom was down some steep narrow stairs.

The tower was great at dusk, the buses are useful and the boat was just average. Overall, this combination is overpriced for what you get.
