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.

Competent contact person at the meeting point, reserved tickets for the Eiffel Tower, boat trip. After 4 hours, which are needed for waiting and sightseeing, the bus ride takes place. Unique tour. You can see everything you need to see from the outside! After that you still have time for extra visits... Super, recommended!

Really well organized tour. Our guide Rebecca was very knowledgeable. We walked a lot and saw a lot of things, which we would certainly not have been able to do on our own. I highly recommend it.

Well worth the premium paid to avoid the long lines to buy a ticket. The river cruise was terrible though - I would recommend skipping it.

Very punctual for the tour with the groups, a very good guide and in general a very good experience

Great organization. Just be patient by Eiffel organization. It takes an hour to start journey up.
