Skip the Line: 2nd Floor Eiffel Tower & Seine Cruise

Enjoy a skip-the-line tour of the Eiffel Tower, and get some of the most romantic views of the “City of Lovers” on a Seine River cruise with this flexible 2-part excursion.

It starts with a guided walk through the Trocadéro gardens, offering spectacular views of the Eiffel Tower and all Paris beyond. Your English-speaking guide will regale you with tales of the Eiffel Tower, and how it emerged victorious to become the much-loved emblem of Paris despite all the efforts to stop construction and destroy it.

Then, skip the famously long lines to the Eiffel Tower, and ascend to the 2nd floor, where you will be rewarded with a breathtaking panorama of Paris. At the conclusion of your visit of the 2nd floor you'll have the opportunity to buy a ticket to the summit if you so wish, where you’ll have complete freedom to stay as long as you like.

You can join your guide on the short stroll to the boat dock for the start of your 1-hour river cruise. Alternatively, you are free to linger at the Eiffel Tower and take your cruise later. The enchanting itinerary takes in some of the city’s most famous monuments, such at the Louvre, Notre-Dame, and Conciergerie. After the bird’s-eye views from the top of the Eiffel Tower, the close-up views from the river are a perfect complement.

Déçu j'ai réservé cette activité en mars et on m'a prévenu le jour même que c'était annulé gentiment la personne que j'ai eu au téléphone à organisé un changement mais financièrement j'ai été perdante le bateau coûtait 15/pers et la visite tour Effel 11 à en croire les tickets et nous avons payé 160euros!!! (nous étions 3 dont une enfant de 7ans)!!!!! Donc visite repoussé d'heure pour le bateau sans guide on a du se débrouiller et la tour Effel de nuit a 22h avec un enfant de 2ans.....Heureusement la vue et le sourire des enfants nous ont permis de passer un bon moment. Merci a la guide aussi pour la tour Effel de son sourire et de ses explications même si que en anglais

Perfekte Planung, gute Führung, 5 Sterne
Es hat alles super geklappt, die Beschreibung des Treffpunkts war sehr ausführlich und genau. Die Führung war perfekt und verständlich, die Fahrt auf der Seine auch schön. Sehr empfehlenswert, keine langen Warteschlangen am Eiffelturm. Abwicklung ohne Probleme.

Amazing day! Everything went so well! (Oops...thatwas 2 sentences!)
Easy to find our guide. She was a wealth of info and the views were fantastic! We did all three levels and each was a different experience. The river cruise on your own was wonderful and a great way to end the whole experience! Thank you! We'll always recommend your company for an enjoyable day in Paree!

Wonderful tour guide
I really enjoyed this tour. The guide was wonderful and the Eiffel tower was very crowded so very delighted to be able to skip the line and access the summit as well.

Kurzfristig gebucht, alles in bester Ordnung.
Wir hatten 2 Tage von Anreise gebucht. Alles hat wie abgemacht funktioniert. Recht beeindruckend, ohne anstehen am Eiffelturm die lange Kolonne zu überspringen! :)

Had the best guide, he was from Ecuador. Very funny and knowledgeable. Great to have skip the line access, worth it paying the additional cost. The line during summer was two hours long! There is a rep holding a tour sign so it was easy to find where we had to meet. The cruise was good also. Very happy overall.

well worth the money
our guide was very friendly which made the whole experience that much better, he gave us so many interesting facts and was so great with my young kids as well. I would recommend this to anyone a must do in Paris and best part was the property boarding for the lift up to the 2nd floor of the Eiffel tower.

Well worth the money to skip the line
It was a thrill to skip the lines especially in the summer crowd ... We did have to queue to go to the summit but this was a manageable 15 mins

Absolutes Highlight in Paris
Die Kombination aus Eifelturm ohne Anstehen und anschließender Seine Fahrt hat uns Erwachsenen und Kindern( 6-10 Jahre) super gefallen. Der Bootssteg ist ja auch sehr nahe am Eifelturm und eine Stunde Fahrt geht gut mit Kindern. Auch der englischsprachige Führer für den Eifelturm war sehr nett und er hat vor dem Eifelturm nicht zu viel erklärt, so war es für die Kinder auch nicht langweilig. Eine tolle Tour.
