This small group Paris by night tour is the perfect way to experience the romance of this great city! As the sun goes down, you’ll take a boat ride along the river before ascending to the Eiffel Tower second floor with skip-the-line tickets, just in time for the famous illuminations. Enjoy epic views across the city as the iconic tower twinkles around you.

  • Elevator access to second floor
  • Cruise down the Seine River
  • Romantic evening
  • Eiffel Tower photos galore
  • Sip champagne
  • Second floor views
  • Eiffel Tower illuminations
  • Unforgettable views of Paris
  • Stay as long as you like

Evening tickets for the Eiffel Tower are in high demand, so don't hesitate to book your perfect night in Paris! After meeting your friendly local guide near the riverbank at the bottom of the steps at Pont d'Iena and Quai Branly, your tour begins with a boat cruise along the Seine River. With a glass of champagne (or a soft drink) in hand, you’ll cruise along the Seine River for around an hour, taking in many of the city’s most iconic sites before reaching the Eiffel Tower.

Next, your guide will help you skip the line for an experience you'll remember forever! With your elevator tickets, you'll head to second floor of the Eiffel Tower as it glitters with light, and you’ll enjoy the ultimate view of Paris at its best—with the city lights glimmering in the night sky. After your tour has finished, you can choose to stay at the tower for as long as you like (or until it closes).

If this evening tour is sold out on the day you're planning to come to the Eiffel Tower, try booking our other popular day tour of the Eiffel Tower that also goes to the second floor and includes a Seine River cruise! Or you can book tickets that guarantee entry to the first and second floors of the Eiffel Tower during the day without the cruise.

Eiffel Tower Cruise Tour Description

Your 2.5-hour tour includes:

  • 1-hour riverboat cruise on the Seine

  • One glass of champagne (or a soft drink)

  • Skip-the-line elevator tickets for the Eiffel Tower second floor

  • A fun, English-speaking guide

  • Maximum group size of 19

Paris Boat Tour Along the Seine

You'll begin your Paris by night experience with a magical cruise along the famous Seine River, enjoying the romantic views of the city in the twinkling hours around sunset. Follow your expert local guide onto the riverboat for your 1-hour ride along the river, with a refreshing glass of champagne (or soft drink) included.

Seine River cruises are the perfect way to enjoy the ambiance that the City of Light is known for. Float by the highlights of the city, including the Louvre, Musée d’Orsay, Notre Dame, and the Eiffel Tower in all its glory.

Eiffel Tower at Night

Paris’s beautiful streets and buildings truly come to life under the stars, and the best time to ascend the Eiffel Tower is around sunset, when the lights of the city and the Iron Lady shine brightly against the night sky. Along with your local guide, you'll breeze past the Eiffel Tower’s long lines and get priority access to the elevator which will take you up to the second floor. You'll hear stories about the construction of the Eiffel Tower and its meaning to the French people, as well as some fascinating tales about the history of Paris.

After your guide has introduced you to the tower, they'll wave goodbye and leave you to enjoy the unforgettable nighttime panoramic view of Paris as the lights of the tower twinkle around you. It's a special experience that'll stay with you forever as you look out over the Champs de Mars and the iconic skyline of the City of Lights!

Please note that the exact time of sunset changes throughout the year, and we are subject to available ticket times from the Eiffel Tower. Your tour might begin before sunset depending on the time of year.

We had a great experience. Our guide was patient and great at getting our kids involved in the learning. We traveled with 5 kids ages 8 to 14 and all of them enjoyed this experience.

Is champagne included in the price of the tour?

Yes, a complimentary glass of champagne is included on the tour, but you can also ask for a soft drink at the bar too.

Can I bring my kids?

Yes, there is no age limit for the river boat or Eiffel Tower. And instead of champagne, there is an assortment of soft drinks available for kids.

Is the summit (top level) included on this tour?

No, the summit is not included on this tour. If you want to go to the summit at night, we recommend booking our Eiffel Tower Summit Evening Tour.

What if I'm nervous about heights but really want to go on the Eiffel Tower?

Is the riverboat steady?

Yes, this is an easy float down a gentle river.

What's the best time to book this tour?

Each start time will include magical views as the sun begins to set. You'll simply need to decide how late you want to stay at the Eiffel Tower and choose the best start time for you. Please note that there can often be lines to descend from the second floor during the summer.

What if this tour is sold out?

If this evening tour is sold out on the day you're planning to come to the Eiffel Tower, try booking our Day Tour of the Eiffel Tower that also goes to the second floor and includes a Seine River cruise!
