Skip the line to the 2nd level of the Eiffel Tower with this combo ticket package in Paris. You'll have access to go directly up to the 2nd level for an aerial look at the city, plus receive entrance (standard, not skip the line) to the less-visited 3rd level, aka the Summit, for an even higher view. When your Eiffel Tower experience is over, enjoy a 1-hour cruise on the Seine for a look at Paris' riverfront landmarks. Select your preferred time to visit the tower when booking.
  • Eiffel Tower admission and Seine River cruise combo
  • Visit Paris' most famous landmark with skip-the-line access to the 2nd level and standard entrance to the 3rd level
  • Learn about the history of the tower from a guide
  • Float along the Seine for views of the city's architecture, bridges, and cultural attractions
Your tour starts at a location about a 5-minute walk from the Eiffel Tower, where you'll meet your guide for an introduction to this Parisian icon. Then avoid the entrance queue with your skip-the-line ticket to go up to the viewing platform on the 2nd level.
Look out at Paris from your bird's-eye vantage point, and hear facts and anecdotes about the Eiffel Tower's history, from its time as a despised monstrosity to the legend it is today. Then you have free time to continue up to the 3rd level to admire the city from the Summit. You can visit the former office of Gustave Eiffel, or perhaps enjoy a drink at the bar (own expense). On your way down, you might want to stop by the 1st-floor immersion gallery, gift shop, or vertigo-inducing glass floor.
When you're back on land, you can use your provided ticket for a 1-hour Seine River cruise, valid for six months from your Eiffel Tower visit. Hop aboard the riverboat, and glide through the heart of Paris for views of its elegant bridges and waterfront landmarks such as Notre-Dame Cathedral.

It was an amazing experience! Our tour guide was the friendliest person and made the experience that much more personal. Seeing the Eiffel Tower all lit up at night and the wonderful sparkling views over Paris! Unforgettable. Please note that Skip The Line access is just to the 1st and 2nd floors of the Eiffel Tower only, regular access to the 3rd floor so it will be a line but it is really worth it. The summit has the most amazing views.

We really only did this tour as we left it too late to buy summit tickets on our own back. And we really wanted to go to the summit.I would recommmed going online and buying summit tickets on the Eiffel Tower website - but make sure you do it at least 2-3 months prior to your visit!!

The tour actually leaves from the tour office, not the Eiffel Tower. The tour office's address is in small print on the voucher. It would help if they had a map on how to get to the address on the voucher. The tour guide only goes to the first floor with you then you are on your own for the rest. You have to have a voucher from the tour office to go on the cruise as well. Cruise consists of half an hours cruise then it turns around again and goes back. The Summit was a great experience.

I don't think the guide was knowledgeable enough. Plus can't hardly hear her talking. But still got where I wanted to be so it's fine.

This was definitely an easier way to see the Eiffel Tower.The downside was that the tour guide was very hard to hear unless you were right next to her so it was difficult for most of us to hear what she was saying and it was very brief. Basically long enough for us to get inside and up one floor and then she left us. So, it was worth it to skip the line but the tour was not the quality I expected. The tour company was very gracious to refund my husband's ticket even though their policy states non-refundable. They let me salvage at least that part of my trip after my husband had to cancel all plans at the last minute and I had to visit to Paris alone. For this, I truly appreciate their understanding and they were incredible at helping me out! The Seine River Cruise was excellent.

One of the main reasons we chose to go this route was so we could have a smooth, unhurried tour. However, Viator did not have all the paperwork in order for all in this tour group though ours was in order. This caused a late start, long lines, and much more of a wait than they led us to believe.
