Seine River Cruise: (1 hour)
Meet your guide by the gardens at Trocadéro in central Paris, and start your evening tour with a stroll around its landscaped lawns to the banks of the Seine River. Hop aboard your sightseeing boat at the water’s edge, and make your way to a reserved area at the front of the boat that lends itself to unobstructed views over the river’s UNESCO-listed banks.
With a glass of Champagne in hand, watch the sun set over Paris and listen to your guide’s entertaining commentary about the sights. Gaze out at top Paris attractions bathed in the soft evening light, and admire landmarks such as the Louvre where some of the world’s most celebrated artwork is housed. Have your camera poised to capture photos of the UNESCO-listed Notre Dame Cathedral, and look out for Île de la Cité, a natural island in the middle of the Seine. Your cruise finishes back at the river start point, where you can see the nighttime lights of the Eiffel Tower sparkling against the skyline.
Skip-the-Line Eiffel Tower Tour: (1.5 hours)
Walk a short distance — roughly 656 feet (200 meters) — to the Eiffel Tower with your guide, and learn about the legendary landmark. Created for the 1889 Paris Universal Exposition, the tower was at first detested by Parisians. Most of the critics eventually caved, and today you can see locals and visitors alike happily climbing its stairs, or riding the elevators some 900 feet (276 meters) to the highest viewpoint.
Skip past the feted icon’s famously long entrance lines with your fast-access ticket, and head straight up to the second floor on an elevator while enjoying anecdotes and tales of history about the Paris landmarks below you. Walk around the viewing gallery with your guide and soak up sights of Champs de Mars and Montparnasse Tower.

Rene our guide did an incredible job. He was extremely knowledgeable, personable and made the night very enjoyable. He took extra efforts to point out the best ways to maximize our experience.
Our guide, Hugo was knowledgeable and fun. Learned a lot more than we would exploring on our own. The cruise also helped us understand the layout of the city better.
Even though it was cloudy and overcast we had an enjoyable cruise down the seine rive. Our host was very good, and watching the tower light up and then going to the second floor at night was phenominal
Tour guide was very informative and fantastic.
Tour guide was very informative and fantastic.
We had a wonderful evening in Paris with our tour guide Henry, from City Visions. Henry is an outstanding guide and went above and beyond what we expected. Our Eiffel Tower
and Seine River Cruise with champagne tour, was the highlight of our vacation in Paris. I highly recommend this tour.
The meeting place was very easy to find, we were met by Felix and Will.
It was a surprise to find out that we would not be getting on the boat until 8:25, and that the Eiffel Tower tour would happen a lot later than we thought, therefore we had to cancel our dinner reservation for my friend’s 50th Birthday.
Will was an excellent guide who gave us lots of interesting history and information about the area and the Eiffel Tower. He asked us questions which was a nice way to encourage group participation.
It was disappointing to miss our dinner we did not get back to our hotel until 11:45 and ate dinner at a restaurant near our hotel.
I think it should be made clearer about the length of the tour
Overall great combo tour. Especially our guide. He was extremely vivacious and talkative and knew so much about the history of Paris and the Eiffel Tower! Champagne wasn't bad either. :-) Lovely evening. Highly recommend it!!
This trip was perfect for our first night in Paris. Seeing the Eiffel Tower while skipping the line is definitely the way to go, and the Seine River Cruise gave us a wonderful overview of the city and what we might want to see in our remaining days in Paris. And all while sipping champagne! Our guide was knowledgeable and friendly. A great experience.
Got to the meet up location early, first ones there. They waited until everyone was there and started handing out the audio gear for the tour, they were short 6-7 headphones. So we did not get to hear 90% of the tour. The guide was very nice and apologetic but I booked an audio tour so I could learn the most I could in a short time. We were on the summit for about 20 mins or less then rushed back down, didn't even walk the full area, stayed in one spot. Then we walk very briskly to get to the cruise dock and wait about 25 minutes for the boat to show up, we could've used that time to be up on top of the eiffel tower. Would not recommend doing this is if you are counting on this to be informative, reliable and your only tour for your stay.
Combine a sunset Seine River cruise with a skip-the-line night tour of the Eiffel Tower on an exciting Paris combo! Watch the sun set over beautiful Parisian attractions such as the Louvre Museum as you sip on a glass of chilled Champagne from a reserved seat at the front of the boat. Hear about the sights from an onboard guide, and then disembark for stroll to the illuminated Eiffel Tower. Skip past the entrance lines for a tour of viewing gallery on the second floor.
