Skip the Line to the Eiffel Tower
The cruise sightseeing ends at the foot of The Eiffel Tower, where you will avoid the long lines and go directly to the elevator for a ride up to the 2nd floor of the Eiffel Tower, which gives you a wonderful panoramic view of Paris, which is the final part of the tour. If you wish, you can buy tickets to the 3rd floor of The Eiffel Tower there.

-On few occasions the visit to the Eiffel Tower could be replaced by a visit at the Montparnasse Tower. The Montparnasse Tower offers the best 360° view to discover Paris: facing the Eiffel Tower, the panoramic view is the best location to admire the top attractions and monuments the city has to offer.
-We will of course do all we can to visit the Eiffel Tower on this tour, but cannot guarantee this at time of booking.
-You, as a client, will be informed of the tour itinerary on the day of departure, not before.
- Should the itinerary include the Montparnasse Tower instead of the Eiffel Tower, you can choose to cancel (on the spot) and get a full refund.
- If you accept the Montparnasse option and join the tour you cannot afterwards ask for refund.
-Please remember that this tour always ends at the Eiffel Tower, allowing time for photo opportunities!
-Again, it is important to stress, that visit to Montparnasse Tower instead of The Eiffel Tower, will only happens on very few dates, the vast majority of tour dates will incl. a visit to the Eiffel Tower.
During EURO 2016 (From June 10th to July 10th 2016) the Eiffel Tower has enforced limitation on the number of visitors for security reasons! Unfortunately, this effects this tour as the visit of the Eiffel Tower will be replaced by a visit at the Montparnasse Tower during EURO 2016 (From June 10th to July 10th 2016)!
During EURO 2016 (From June 10th to July 10th 2016) NO refund will be given if you book this tour and the Eiffel Tower visit is replaced with The Montparnasse Tower!
Fantastic 5.03 customer reviews
We collected our tickets from your office from the very efficient staff. There was quite a queue when we got there but visitors were being dealt with very quickly, and we had to wait just 5 minutes to be served. The tour bus was waiting outside and the tour was excellent with a very informative commentary on the earphones provided. There was no rushing and the sights we saw were amazing. We were then taken to the river boat trip and straight on board past the waiting crowds! A very pleasant and informative trip which returned us to the river bank just below the Eiffel Tower. We were then escorted to the Tower by our guide, and this is where I thought we would have to queue with the huge number of visitors in a very long queue. No way, we were given our tickets by our guide and WALKED STRAIGHT IN !!!! We were told we could stay in the Tower for as long as we liked.
This was the best organised and easiest tour we have ever been on, and avoiding the long queues to go on the boat and especially to the Tower was the `icing on the cake`.
My Wife and I will be returning again to Paris and will have no hesitation in booking tours with you.
This review might sound as though it was written by a member of Ticmate, but I can assure you we have no connection to Ticmate other than very satisfied customers.
Thank you for your superb service.

Eiffel Tower was amazing. Buying the tickets early meant that we did not have to queue which saved us hours. Well worth doing this way. Boat cruise was really nice and again no queuing. Once in the Eiffel Tower you do have to queue to go to the top, but worth it
The Coach Tour gave us an idea of all the sights and enabled us to plan our activities later in the week. The Eiffel Tower included admission allowed us to get into the Tower much more quickly than waiting to buy our own tickets. We had to wait for a little while to buy tickets on the second level to reach the top, but not a problem! The boat trip was also enjoyable.
