By far the highlight of our trip to Paris. The lines at the Eiffel Tower were extremely long but we skipped all of them. This is such a great tour.

Great tour! Very organized. Unfortunately the day we went was a bank holiday, so the security lines and lines for the elevator up the Eiffel Tower were so long, but it was great to have a tour guide to direct us to the right place. Bus ride was great, and the boat was so fun!

Wonderful tour. I had been to Paris many times but this was the first we visited as a family so we booked this tour and we weren't disappointed. The bus tour was first, the bus was comfortable and we got ear phones to listen to a great commentary. We saw all the highlights of Paris and went to areas I had not been to before up around the Sorbonne which was beautiful. Our tour guide was very pleasant, informative and very helpful at the Eiffel Tower. The skip the line tickets for the Eiffel Tower were brilliant and we got there at dusk which was the best time to see the views both in daylight and in the dark. Our guide left us there with tickets for the river cruise. We did the River Cruise in the dark and it was just beautiful. I had done a Seine cruise before but not at night and it was beautiful. I would highly recommend this tour for anyone, first time or after many visits as Paris is a beautiful city and you can visit over and over. TIP Skip the line for the Eiffel Tower made it much easier.

Our tourist guy was excellent. We couldn't do the Seine River Cruise because of the flood that happened the week prior to our trip.

We were very happy with our tour and the company as well. They were very understanding in rebooking us for a later tour as we were late to ours and missed it. They even allowed us to store a bag that wouldn't fit in a locker at the train station as well. We are very grateful for this and for the opportunity to see the highlights of Paris through the river cruise and sightseeing tour. We would definitely do this again and we would definitely use this company!

We had a great time, and we were so grateful that we had joined the tour. The bus tour was nice, with great English translation through the headphones. Victor our guide was very thorough and careful with us. I am amazed at how many different languages he could speak. The fact that we didn't have to wait in line to go up to the second level of the Eiffel Tower made the whole tour worthwhile. The cruise at the end was a nice finish. Highly recommend!

The bus tours was great and the bus was very nice. We were fortunate there were not many others on this tour so we were able to move around and get good pictures from both sides of the bus. Once off the bus, we were given our tickets for the river cruise, which we could take any time that day - we appreciated not having to go at a specific time and were able to plan the day as we wished. We were able to skip all of the lines at the Eiffel Tower, which was very convenient. Once we went up in the tower, we could spend as much time up there as we wanted.

If you are time limited in Paris, this tour is ideal. Start off in a coach, passing by the main sites in Paris, lasting just over an hour. Next, to the Eiffel Tower with expedited access to the 2nd floor. From the 2nd floor, it costs an additional 6 Euros to get to the top. Prior to going up the Tower, you are given tickets for the boat cruise to do at your leisure. Boats leave every half hour from just opposite the coach drop off point. Total time is between 4 and 6 hours, depending on how long you want to spend up the Tower. Good value for money and well organised with the right amount of flexibility.

We enjoy the Eiffel Tower. It was a pleasure not waiting in a line to get a ticket. The Seine River Cruise was beautiful and very peaceful. Our guide on the Paris Sightseeing Tour was very good. If you have not much time on hand to see Paris I will definitely recommend this tour.

This was a great experience and very worth the money! When you are done with the tour, it ends at the Eiffel Tower. You might think about planning this tour in the mid to late afternoon, then after tour is over, eat dinner at the Eiffel Tower and enjoy the tower lights at night. The tour guide got us in the Eiffel Tower right away, skipping the lines and getting up to the second floor with no waiting. Very good experience!

Great combo tour!! Easy access to the Eiffel Tower. Very enjoyable boat ride on the Seine. Great way to get an overview of Paris.
• Submitted 26 Sep 2017
After an overnight flight, this was the perfect tour for our first afternoon in Paris.We saw the highlights, were newly awaken by the scenes from the Seine, and, of course, love the spectacle of the Eiffel Tower!
• Submitted 13 Sep 2017
This tour was well organized. During the sightseeing bus tour you could listen to audio about various attractions around the city, however eiffel tower and boat tour is really all on your own which is completely fine.
