What You Can Expect
On your return to Paris, your three-course lunch (drinks not included) will be served in a central Paris restaurant. In the afternoon, you'll take a self-guided city tour of Paris' main monuments by air-conditioned motor coach. You will also have the opportunity to ride the elevator to the second floor of the Eiffel Tower to enjoy the amazing panoramic views of Paris. There is not enough time allocated for visitors to go to the "top" of the Eiffel Tower. Queuing can take a long time, therefore it is suggested to return on another day.
The tour comes to a close with a one-hour Seine River cruise, with commentary. You'll admire the famous bridges crossing the Seine and learn more about the history of Paris on your cruise. Your whirlwind day tour of Versailles and Paris ends at the base of the Eiffel Tower.

Great tour and day
It was a long day, but a great way to see a lot of the area in few days we had to spend in Paris. Our guide in Versailles was wonder and kept us entertained while we waited to go inside. The lunch was about what you would expect... Left to our on devices we would have had a CroqueMonsieur at a sidewalk cafe. But it was fine and a nice break before the rest of the tour.
Save your earplugs from the Versailles tour to use on the bus tour of the city. These will work better! Make sure to sit upstairs if you are on a double decker bus to see more. After this we went to the Eiffel Tower. My husband and I chose not to go up, and instead went straight on to the boat tour of the Seine. It was a great finish seeing the city by water. Take along cab fare to get back to your hotel for a really great day!
