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!
First and foremost, we will confirm your entry time to the Eiffel Tower. We’ve done the hard part of securing a skip-the-line entry for you so that all you need to do is arrive at our office, conveniently located just a few minutes away from the tower, and collect your tickets. A host will accompany you to the Eiffel Tower, ensure that everyone makes it through security swiftly, and provide you with a brief background on the construction and history of iconic Parisian monument. From there, you are free to explore all levels at your leisure.
Your host 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. Depending on the timing of your Eiffel Tower visit, we will advise you when it’s best to take the river cruise. Seeing Paris from a boat is a great way to appreciate some of the most popular attractions such as Notre Dame, the Musée d’Orsay, Place de la Concorde, Pont Alexandre III, and so much more!
This day also includes a reservation on either our Paris Day Bike Tour or Paris Night Bike Tour, which will depart at either 10am, 3pm, or 6:30pm depending on your Eiffel Tower visit. We've been perfecting our bike tours of Paris since 1999, and we think it's an excellent pairing to a view from the tower. 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!
