Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Eiffel Tower, 5 Avenue Anatole France, 75007 Paris France

Choose from a morning or afternoon start time, and then meet your guide to start your Paris Super Saver with a stroll through the gardens at Trocadéro. Hear tales of the Eiffel Tower as you walk, and learn about its creation for the International Exposition of 1889, a world fair. Detested by Parisians in its early days, the tower eventually won the hearts of the locals and it became the city’s most feted icon. Skip past the tower’s long entrance lines with your fast-access ticket, and head straight up to the second floor by elevator while enjoying anecdotes and tales of history about the Paris landmarks below your feet. Walk around the viewing gallery with your guide and soak up sights of Champs de Mars and Montparnasse Tower. Your next experience has a flexible start time, meaning you can simply walk to the prearranged meeting point — roughly 656 feet (200 meters) from the tower — at a time that suits your schedule.

Duration: 2 hours

Stop At: Seine River, 75001 Paris France

Hop aboard your sightseeing boat at the water’s edge, and relax out on deck or in the lower saloon as you cruise along the famous river. Cutting through the city, the Seine takes in some glamorous sights and its Paris riverbanks have been awarded UNESCO World Heritage status. Listen to entertaining commentary as you cruise and gaze out at sights such as the Louvre, an iconic building that’s home to some of the world’s most celebrated artwork. Have your camera poised to capture photos of Notre Dame — a UNESCO World Heritage site — and marvel at the attention-grabbing façade of La Conciergerie. The former royal palace and prison once housed some of the country’s most important political prisoners such as Marie Antoinette and Napoleon III. After an hour on the water, cruise back to the start point where your tour finishes.

So glad I booked this tour. It was well worth having a tour guide to follow and didn't have to wait 2 hours to buy tickets. The tour guide could have given better direction though on where to get on the River cruise.

Even though it was 8:30 in the morning, there were enormous lines and we got to bypass them. Our tour guide was fantastic. She provided so much information about The Eiffel Tower and made it a game for us to see how much we knew. The Seine Cruise was the perfect add on which we enjoyed thoroughly. You can go anytime you want which made it even better!

The tour was.very good. Make sure you read your ticket: this tour does NOT meet at the Eiffel Tower but across the way. I read the ticket to my husband the night before he and his mom went to Paris for the day. Unfortunately ahem HE. DID NOT LISTEN and ended up dragging his 76 year old mother all over the place attempting to track down the tour. At no time did he resort to actually reading the ticket. Nonetheless he happened upon the tour and his mom caught up and they thoroughly enjoyed it! He said the tour guide was especially good. He and his mother loved the Seine cruise.

Skip the line Eiffel Tower tour was well organised and enjoyable. The cruise, however, was a disappointment. Tour described on Viator as: Then, embark on a 1-hour cruise along the Seine that's chock-full of sights including the Notre Dame Cathedral and the Louvre Museum. When we arrived at the jetty for the cruise we were told that it was only for half an hour. Another couple had the same response.

Overall we enjoyed this experience. Be sure to read the details regarding meeting point and progression of events. The details state that you can take the boat cruise after the Eiffel Tour or at any time. However, it should state you will receive your tickets for the boat tour from your tour guide at the meeting point, then you can take the boat tour whenever you like. We tried to go to the boat tour before the Eiffel Tour due to weather on that day, but we were unable to do that since we didn’t have our boat tour tickets yet. Our tour guide was friendly and knowledgeable.

The only complain even though you get front off the line pass we still had to wait 45 minutes in line. Otherwise well worth it. Our tour started on time and the tour guide was very good

It was our first trip to the Eiffel Tower. After having two great tours at the Louvre and Versailles, we had high expectations for this tour, but overall the tour guide didn’t help much. She was friendly but didn’t really tell us anything about the history of the tower or much besides where to get in line for the elevators and she pointed out some of the landmarks when we got to the second level. We probably would have done fine without a guide. The river cruise was enjoyable.

Affable enough guide with good sense of humor but little actual knowledge of the Eiffel Tower imparted. Was basically just good for skip the line privileges. Boat cruise afterwards was just ok.
