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

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

Experience the ultimate day in Paris via a bike, a boat, and a bird’s eye view of the city!  

This day includes everything that you want to see and do in Paris in one easy to manage itinerary. While the activities will take place over the course of the day, you will have plenty of time in between each one for food, drinks, and extra exploring!

Your day kicks off with our famous Paris Day Bike Tour at 10:00am.  We've been perfecting our bike tours of Paris since 1999, and it's simply the best way to experience the city!.  Our bike tour will include many of the famous landmarks of the city while giving you background information about each one, anecdotal stories, and local knowledge from our excellent guides.  We aim to pass along our love for this city so that you can feel like a true insider. If you have a short time in Paris, this is a great way to include everything in one go! 

After your bike tour, your guide will lead you to the Eiffel Tower where you will have a skip-the-line entry at 2:00pm all the way to the summit.  Your ticket also includes access to the 1st and 2nd floors, and you are free to explore each level at your leisure.  You will have the chance to take in many of the sites that you saw on the bike tour from a bird's eye view.   

Your guide will also provide you with information and tickets for a one-hour boat cruise on the River Seine that you can enjoy at any time of the day or evening or save for another day in Paris.  Many guests ask us when is the best time for the boat ride...and our answer is always!  Mornings on the Seine are quiet and serene, while a daytime visit provides for the best photo opportunities.  Evenings on the boat are simply magical; the lights of Paris illuminate the monuments, and the river banks become the primetime hangout spot.  Why not join in on the riverside fun after your boat cruise?  Don't worry about having a bottle opener; that's how you make friends in Paris!

If you have a short time in Paris, this is a great way to include everything in one go!
