Covid-19 Update

Due to health and safety regulations, this itinerary may change. See Know before you go for the latest updates.

Choose a morning start time when it is less crowded, and then meet your guide to start your journey in Paris at the Eiffel Tower. You will hear tales 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 over the hearts of the locals and it became the city’s most feted icon. After you pass the 2 security controls, you will head straight up to the second floor or summit (depending of the option that you book) by elevator while enjoying anecdotes and tales of history about the Paris landmarks below your feet. You will also walk around the viewing gallery and soak up sights of Champs de Mars and Montparnasse Tower.  Your next experience is a river cruise a with a flexible start time. 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

The tour went really smooth, we were not in line for that long and while beeing in the line the guide was walking about the Eiffel Tower so it did not feel long. She knew a lot about all the monuments we could see from the top and we could ask whatever we felt like. she was really good!

This company helped save our trip! Travel delays caused us to miss our pre-booked reservation for the Eiffel Tower summit and all other reservations for the week at the official website had sold out. With Get Your Guide I was able to book a package to the summit along with a Seine River cruise on short notice. Our friendly and helpful tour guide was excellent and our morning went off without a hitch! Our two small children would have been devastated to return home without visiting the top of the tower. I will be forever grateful to this excellent company and encourage others to book a tour with confidence.

I was not able to purchase any tickets from the official Eiffel Tower website, but had no problem with GYG. The tour was wonderful, easy meeting place to find, helpful friendly and knowledgeable guide. She gave us fascinating information with detail and cheer. Thoroughly enjoyed this tour. What was NOT PRESENTED in the tour information, was that the combined Tower and Seine boat tour are different times. The tower tour took about 1.5 hours (you can stay as long as you like). The boat tour you are on your own, you ticket is good for a year, but there is no information provided when purchasing on this, or the timetables. There are multiple Parisean Bateaux tours!! It's impossible to know which one you are looking for until to speak with the guide. I had multiple tours planned each day, so I was worried if this would fit in, and we only has ONE DAY left, so I wasn't happy about the "surprise" that we had to find our own departure time.
