Skip the Ticket Desk Line: Eiffel Tower and Seine River Cruise
  • Skip the Ticket Desk Line: Eiffel Tower and Seine River Cruise

    Enjoy two quintessential Parisian experiences that combines an Eiffel Tower tour with a Seine River cruise. With a local guide, you'll skip the line to enter the famous landmark and explore its second floor viewing gallery while hearing fun facts and little-known Eiffel Tower trivia. At a time that suits you, stroll to the banks of the Seine River to hop aboard a boat for a 1-hour sightseeing cruise, taking in the Louvre Museum, Notre Dame (Cathédrale de Notre Dame de Paris) and more.

    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 the desk 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.

    Duration: 1 hour

      My husband and I really enjoyed our tour. It was a rainy day but the guide was very informative, really knew his facts, had a great sense of humor, and provided us with an outstanding tour. He managed the group through the crowds, check in, and reaching the 2nd level of the tower. It was an excellent tour!

      The tour guide was thoughtful and provided some interesting history of the tower then allowed the group to walk around once on the platform. I thought the tour went well and highly recommend to anyone wanting to skip the lines and have a unique experience.

      This ticket made us skip the line and helped us go past the hassle of standing in long queue. The entrance to top floor was sold out a week ago before my visit and I had to settle for the 2nd floor visit at the Eiffel tower and the view presented us a breathtaking sunset and a good view of the city! The cruise was however not with the skip the line, we had to stand in for almost 40 minutes. But otherwise, this makes a good combo!

      Viator was EXCELLENT because before we even called to say the Eiffel Tower was closed due to Jacques Chirac death and were not able to visit, they had refunded our complete amount for the Skip the line and Seine River Cruise.

      Our guide on the Skip the Line Tour was a wonderful young man named Nara - who joked that his American name was Bob. We met him and others at the Museum of Architecture and Monuments. There we were given headphones to hear him better, as well as a ticket for a cruise on the River Seine, which we would be welcome to do on our own at any point. Nara led us from the meeting point down to the Eiffel Tower, sharing interesting facts about the architect who built the tower (Eiffel himself), as well as how many men helped build it, how it is painted every 7 years and so on and so forth. Nara gave us all our tickets, we bypassed the line, went thru security and we were soon on our way up the elevator. I had been to the Eiffel Tower 20 years earlier, but my mom had never been. We decided to just go to the second lookout tour (not all the way to the top) because I remember the view being absolutely fantastic. It was! Once we arrived, Nara told us about a number of the buildings we were seeing and gave us an orientation of Paris. Then, we gave him back our headsets, gave him a tip and bid him and the rest of the group adieu.
      I would highly recommend this option for a few reasons. 1. The tour guides are so knowledgeable and give you a context for what you are seeing, and therefore an even greater appreciation of the architecture. 2. Skipping the line was amazing. 3. The tour of the River Seine, which we did directly following the Eiffel Tower was absolutely breathtaking. We did ours at 8:00pm, which allowed us to see more of Paris and at the end, when we were returning, to see the Eiffel Tower all lit up. According to our tour, we knew that it lights up every hour for 5 minutes, starting at 8:00pm and ending at 1:00am. Seeing it from the water was spectacular. The cruise is just one hour and they sell alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages on board.

      I recently purchased the double activity ticket and I am beyond glad that I purchased this activity. The tour guide was "Nara" and he made the tour informative, fun, and even comical since the weather was a bit wet. Pay attention to the initial meeting point to avoid issues, but the overall experience was an awesome purchase that my entire family enjoyed. Thanks again Nara for the experience!!! The Seine river cruise was a nice relaxing experience as well.

      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.

      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.

      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!

      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.

      Me and my wife enjoyed the the Eiffel tower and the relaxing river cruise. Will recommend. Skip the line was great as we literally by passed like a hundred people to get to the second floor. Getting to the summit is not included and is a separate expense.
