The Eiffel Tower is the unofficial symbol of Paris which makes it one of Paris' top attraction to visit. While you should undoubtedly walk by during the day, we believe the tower is best seen around sunset! It is located at the end of Champs de Mars on the Seine river, which is why it's ideal to book with a river cruise!

Our tour includes a cruise on the Seine River (champagne included) and skip-the-line tickets for the Eiffel Tower with an elevator ride to the second floor. Your magical Parisian evening will be filled with many photo opportunities as the light changes during your cruise and as you head up the Eiffel Tower for city views.

Eiffel Tower Cruise Tour Description

This 2.5-hour long tour includes:

  • 1-hour riverboat cruise of the Seine

  • One glass of champagne or a soft drink

  • Skip-the-line second floor Eiffel Tower tickets included

  • A local English-speaking guide

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.

Paris Boat Tours

Experience Paris skyline’s gorgeous lights as you cruise the Seine River. Glide by Parisian landmarks such as the Louvre, Musée d’Orsay, and the Eiffel Tower. Enjoy a complimentary glass of champagne (or soft drink) as you soak in the marvelous view. 

Eiffel Tower at Night

Appropriately nicknamed the City of Light, Paris’s beautiful streets and buildings come to life under the stars. Breeze past the Eiffel Tower’s long lines and get priority access to the elevator which will take you up to the second floor. Here you'll appreciate the unforgettable nighttime panoramic view of Paris from the Eiffel Tower. Your guide will also share cool stories about the Eiffel Tower's history and architect before letting you explore on your own.

Look out over the Champs de Mars to see Parisians and travelers alike enjoying the evening view of Gustave Eiffel's iconic creation. At the tour’s conclusion, feel free to stay as long as you like and savor the majesty of the City of Lights.

Please note that since the exact time of sunset changes throughout the summer, we try our best to have it coincide with the tour, which means the start time is subject to change. We will reach out to you in advance for any time change.

We joined an evening Seine cruise/Eiffel Tower combination (8:45pm). The cruise comes first and it’s a pleasant post-sunset along the Seine through the heart of Paris to just beyond Notre Dame and Isle Saint-Louis. Then returning to the Eiffel Tower at 10:00 just in time to see the tower “sparkle” as it does on the hour after sunset. If you are expecting a narrated tour of Paris from the river you will be disappointed. The boat plays music instead. There is a small bar on deck serving wine, champagne, and soft drinks. This is our second visit to the Eiffel Tower but our first time at night. Paris is a lovely city even after sunset. You will not be disappointed by the views. Unless you specifically feel the need to go all the way to the top, the second level observation area is perfect for viewing the city and it’s landmark monuments and buildings. The absolutely best part of the experience was our tour guide Sara. She is very pleasant and completely engaged with her group. She lives in Paris and knows every tab out the city and neighborhoods. She is also fluent in four languages! Sara provided a thorough and interesting presentation of the key aspects of the Tower. While at the same time herding our group through the various security checks (two of them) and other queues. You will not be disappointed with the tour. Definitely ask for Sara when you book your tour!

Great night

We had a great night on the river and at the Eiffel. Our guide Amber was excellent and very insightful. We were able to steer clear of almost all the crowds. My only comment, would he directed at the boat we were on which docks immediately when the Tower lights up with the additional lighting (at 10:00) so you end up missing most of it. Thank you!

Fantastic evening in Paris

Easy to find meeting place. Only 15 people. Tour guide Hexel was outstanding. She was an efficient guide, knew everything about the Tower and area and communicated in an engaging and interactive way.

Along the riverbank at the corner of Pont d'Iena and Quai Branly. A representative will be waiting at the bottom of a staircase by the river with a sign that says "The Tour Guy". If you look up and see a carousel above the staircase, you're in the right spot!

What to bring?

It's always smart to wear comfortable shoes since you'll be on your feet for the most part.

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! 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?

We understand it can be a little fearful for anyone concerned about heights. Fortunately, there are heavy-duty fences around each level to keep people secure. In addition, you can step inside the enclosed inner areas of the Eiffel Tower if you need to take a break from being on the outer floor.

Will I get nauseous on the river boat?

Probably not, but you're always welcome to bring your own personal medications if you have any concerns. The boats are large and the river is quite calm, so most people don't experience any rocking motion.

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.
