What It Is
The Eiffel Tower, or the Iron Lady, as she's affectionately known is an iconic landmark of Paris that shouldn't be missed! From the 2level of the Eiffel Tower, which you will access via elevator to save your legs from climbing the stairs, you will be able to look down on the streets and rooftops of Paris and pick out the top landmarks such as the Arc de Triomphe, Notre Dame Cathedral, and Sacre Ca"ur Basilica. You can also look down on the manicured gardens at the foot of the Eiffel Tower.
A stretch of the River Seine is UNESCO Listed and it's along here that you'll take the sightseeing river cruise on a glass-enclosed river boat that provides panoramic views of Paris from the water as you float past the top riverside attractions of Paris including the Eiffel Tower.
Your Experience With Eiffel Tower Summit Access And Seine River Cruise
You will meet your English-speaking guide close to the Eiffel Tower at the designated place and then make your way, as part of a small group, past the long queues to gain fast-track entry via elevator up to the 1and 2nd floors of the Eiffel Tower, your guide explaining the history of this iconic landmark, sharing stories and anecdotes and generally giving you some insider knowledge that many of the other visitors will be missing out on.
After the intro talk you can spend as much time as you wish looking down on Paris and taking all the photos you need with unlimited time access up the tower, there's also the opportunity to pay extra and go all the way to the top.
This combination 2-in-1 ticket also allows you to take a 1 hour Seine River sightseeing cruise. This cruise can be taken at a day and time of your choosing, up to 6 months after your visit to the Eiffel Tower so if you feel rushed and run out of time you can always use the ticket on your next trip to Paris.
The cruise takes place on a glass-enclosed river boat offering visitors panoramic views of Paris and passing by some of the top riverside attractions including Notre Dame Cathedral.
