Make the most of your visit to the City of Light. Check off the top items on your “must-see” list including Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame and River Seine.
Your entry to The Eiffel Tower with Summit and Boat Cruise are included in the price of the tour. Louvre tickets are NOT included.
Food and drink is available for purchase at several locations during the tour.
Restrooms are available on the second level and summit of the Eiffel Tower. Additionally there are restrooms available at various locations along the way.
It is important to arrive to the first part of the tour, at the Eiffel Tower, 15 minutes prior to the tour start time to allow yourself time to get through the mandatory security check. We do start the tour promptly and it would be unfair for the others if we need to wait for those that are late. We cannot guarantee you’ll be able to find your tour group if you are late.
Tips are always appreciated by our guides, but never expected. They should be given if you believe your guide did an outstanding job, and further, if you as an individual want to demonstrate your appreciation to the guide for that job well done.
There is approximately 2-3 miles of walking at a leisurely pace over the course of the day.

After you see the cathedral and learn of her history, your stroll on this island will take you past the ornate gates of the Palace of Justice, the Conciergerie where Marie Antoinette was imprisoned during the Revolution, and the Saint-Chapelle church. Before you leave the island you will head towards the oldest bridge in Paris, the Pont Neuf.
Cross over the bridge to the right bank where you will stroll alongside the river past the Bouquinistes, or booksellers, and celebrate a tradition that dates back to the 15th century.
