Paris Combo: Day Bike Tour, Seine Cruise, and Eiffel Tower Summit

Experience the ultimate day in Paris with this exclusive tour! Unlike any tour we offer, this combo tour includes three unique ways to see Paris: by bike, by boat, and from high above!

Your day kicks off with a visit to Paris' most famous monument: the Eiffel Tower. Your ticket allows you to skip the notoriously long lines and go straight to the 2nd level before ascending to the very top.

After a break for lunch (cost not included) it's time for the Paris Day Bike Tour starting at 3pm. We've been perfecting this tour since 1999 and it is a fabulous way to visit Paris on one of our comfortable cruiser bikes. Whether you're a Paris rookie or seasoned veteran, our goal is to not overwhelm you with monotonous facts you can find in any guide book. Instead, we offer you the famous local attractions, local knowledge, educational information, great photo opportunities, and heaps of fascinating stories from your tour guide! Essentially, we want you to love Paris like we do and have a great time doing it.

Included in this combo tour is a one hour cruise on the River Seine - the perfect compliment to your day out in Paris. On the boat you will pass beneath Paris' most famous bridges and by many of its most popular attractions including Notre Dame, Musée d'Orsay, and more! This ticket allows you to join a cruise whenever you like, so you are welcome to join a boat cruise following your bike tour, or on another day during your time in Paris.

Paris Combo: Day Bike Tour, Seine Cruise, and Eiffel Tower Summit Reviews

Paris Combo: Day Bike Tour, Seine Cruise, and Eiffel Tower Summit is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice introduction to the city! We did this tour on our first "official" day in Paris. We met our guide at the Fat Tire office and walked over to the Eiffel Tower. We were given a short history lesson on the tower and then the guide took us to the entrance and you spend as much time on the tower as you want (the guide does not accompany you). We had some free time before meeting up for our bike tour of the city. This was a nice way to get the layout of the city and see where different land marks are. Our guide was Grace. We ended up doing the Seine cruise on our last day (you do this on your own). It was a nice, relaxing end to our time in Paris.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not to be missed! Our tour guide was Kat. She was well-educated on the French history and culture, she kept us safe from traffic, and she was funny. Overall, a definite must do while in Paris.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fun Way to See the City Denise was a wonderful guide and host. She educated us, made us feel welcome and took very good care of us while we rode through Paris. We saw many interesting sites. Take this tour and have fun!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value and great fun The Eiffel tour was a great experience in spite of the drizzle. Then riding bikes around Paris was a fun and unique experience. I personally never felt at risk but I was a little worried about some of the other members of our group who were not strong riders and did not seem to have the balance for frequent stops and for riding slowly like you have to do at times. We saved our boat ticket to take the next evening at twilight. We actually got on the boat right at 10:00 pm to see the hourly "sparkle" of the tower then we got to see it again at 11:00 as we were finishing up the ride.
