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 8.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great way to see Paris! This was an amazing tour for our family (2 adults, 3 kids aged 15,13,9). It incorporated exercise, sight seeing, interesting information, relaxation all in one. Our guide, Erica was very professional and knowledgeable providing interesting information on all our stops. This is a great way to see Paris! We choose to do the Eiffel Tower in the morning and this was flawless as well. Our guide provided a short history and then we skipped the line and went up in the elevator (although we did walk down). Our tickets entitled us to head to the summit so we did that as well. There was a line to get up there and it was super crowded at the top but worth the trip for our crew. The Seine Cruise was uneventful and we probably could have skipped it since we had seen a lot of the sites already. There wasn't any commentary up top - only down below but we didn't know that when we got on. Good for picturesque relaxation but not for interesting information. Thanks again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Both entertaining and informative Our family enjoyed this trip immensely -- best part was the bike tour. We learned so much from out guide who was both personable and well informed about the city. He answered questions well and was a very concerned that all of the group were having a great time. Eiffel tower component was ok...they just bring you to the side entrance and then you are on your own. River cruise was well worth it...we decided to go another day (better weather and more time) rather than trying to squeeze it in between the tower and bike tours. I would suggest you do the same as the tickets are good for the cruise to be used any other time. Great experience overall and look forward to using this company in the future in other cities.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So much fun! Your highly recommend! We originally booked this because Eiffel Tower tickets were sold out on the days we were in Paris. This tour included tickets to that so we bought them! Little did we know it would be one of the highlights of our trip! Antoine, our guide was funny and knowledgeable (spoke great english)! He made our tour even better! All the staff were friendly. We got to see things we would have not thought about checking out on our own. Also, it was nice to do some sight seeing that did not include a ton of walking since we had been walking SO much on our trip. Our feet needed the break! Besides the bike tour the Eiffel Tower and River Cruise were pretty go at your own pace which was different than we expected but very nice. We could take as much time as we needed. Just a fun and enjoyable way to see the city and get a little history along the way! When I go back I would do it again!

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.
