Iconic symbol of Paris, the “iron lady” is one of the most visited monuments in the world, and a must see for any visitor to Paris. Join our small group tour and let our friendly local guides escort you to the top of this incredible monument, whisking you past the long entrance lines and regaling you with stories of her construction and turbulent history. Once reviled by local Parisians, she was almost torn down and sold for scrap, but she outlasted all her critics and now stands proudly as the much loved symbol of the city.
Meet your guide close to the base of the Eiffel Tower, and enjoy fast track access to the elevators that will take you straight to the second floor, bypassing the often long ticket lines. Your guide will then escort you to the very top of the tower, offering spectacular sweeping views across the city and beyond. Gustave Eiffel himself had his apartment on the top of his tower, you can peek inside, or choose to treat yourself to a drink from the champagne bar. Your tour also includes a guided visit of the second floor, from where you can enjoy a bird's eye view of the City of Lights spread out below you. See Montmartre, the Louvre, the Arc de Triomphe, Notre Dame and much more. Your guide will point out the major monuments, explaining their history and also offering tips and advice on the best way to visit them.
After your tour, you are free to join a scenic 1 hour Seine River cruise, at any time of your choosing. It's just a short walk to the river, and your ticket also offers skip the line access to the boats. The beautiful banks of the River Seine are a UNESCO listed world heritage site, and a cruise along the river is one of the best ways to enjoy the wonderful monuments that line the banks. Relax and enjoy a glass of champagne as you float through the heart of the city.
