FAQs

How much walking is there?

Our Latin Quarter Walking Tour cover about 2.5 miles at a leisurely pace. If mobility is an issue, consider booking a private tour.

How does the Seine cruise upgrade work?

Your guide will give you instructions on where to find the boat. Your ticket is good for a one-hour cruise along the Seine anytime within one year of the date of your tour. Make sure to arrive on time for your Eiffel Tower tour to receive your boat tickets — if you miss your tour, you won’t be able to pick up your cruise tickets. Reservations are not required for the river cruise. Just show up 20 minutes early with your tickets. The boat ride is roundtrip, starting and ending by the Eiffel Tower. Here is a map of the meeting point. 

What is the rescheduling policy?

We understand plans change. You can always change your tour 24 hours or more before you tour. We offer a 100% refund up to 24 hours prior to your tour start time. Within 24 hours of your tour, we would have incurred hard costs and therefore cannot allow rescheduling or cancellation without costs.

What if it rains?

Our tours run rain or shine, so please check the local forecast to plan. In rare cases when we have to cancel for extreme weather, we’ll offer you the chance to reschedule or give a full refund.

Are gratuities included?

Tips are always appreciated but never expected. They’re a great way to tell your guide they did an awesome job and show your appreciation.
