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.
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.
