Full description
See the best of Paris with this tour combining a guided Eiffel Tower visit with tickets to the Arc de Triomphe as well as a river cruise. Accompany your guide to the Eiffel Tower and visit the second floor, with an option to visit the summit. Then, use your Arc de Triomphe and river cruise tickets on any other day before their expiration.   The Eiffel Tower offers panoramic views of the city—see iconic monuments such as the golden dome of les Invalides and the remains of Notre Dame de Paris. Enjoy a bird’s eye view of the Egyptian obelisk at Place de la Concorde and the magnificent roof of the Grand Palais. If you select the summit option on booking, ascend even higher to see out past the city entirely, and check this activity off your bucket list.   Then, within 3 months of purchase, board a panoramic river boat for a 1-hour cruise along the Seine River that starts from the base of the Eiffel Tower, with service that runs every 30 to 60 minutes. See some of Paris’s iconic monuments closer up on this relaxing tour through the city.   You’ll also receive open tickets to visit the Arc de Triomphe, a neoclassical monument built in the ancient Roman style. Located at the center of the city, the view from the top is absolutely worth it—see the streets radiate out from this center point in a star-shaped pattern. At the base, visit the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, which pays tribute to the 1.3 million French soldiers who died during the First World War. Observe the eternal flame being lit at 6:30 PM every night and wander the exhibition that explains the symbolic importance of this monument.

Reasonable value for all 3 experiences- and definitely worth securing the place, especially for the tower and the Arc where the initial lines were long. Our guide for the tower (Victoria) was a lot of fun and knowledgeable- and picking up tickets and finding meeting points was easy. I think this is reasonably expensive compared to on the gate pricing (especially if you have kids in the group) but being from out of town we wanted to ensure we saw and experienced these wonderful sights

We had a good experience. Our guide met us at the meeting point on time. She had a good knowledge of the Eiffel Tower (although it was her first outing as a guide for the Eiffel Tower). We enjoyed her company. Our trip to the second floor of the Eiffel Tower met our expectations. The views from there were good. Will recommend this activity.

It wasn’t a great tour. The guide didn’t go up with us, we al walked from a block away to the tower, we got in, she provided some information and she left us in the line to the elevators. It wasn’t bad but nothing special. It was worth it because we skipped the line but the guide wasn’t what I expected. And she didn’t come with us to the Arc of Triumph, you should advertise better what exactly the tour consists off. I thought we were walking to the tower and from there to the Arc of Triumph. I didn’t realiza how far it was but that is what I expected from the tour.
