This Louvre Museum and Eiffel Tower tour is a combination of two popular tours. After enjoying lunch on your own, meet up with your group again to keep exploring the city with a new guide. Booking a combo tour saves you money since you see more attractions at a lower price!

Louvre Museum Tour

Skip past the famously long lines at the Louvre and see the museum's most influential works on a perfectly planned small group tour of the Louvre. These works include the two of the most important Greek statues still standing: Venus de Milo and the Winged Victory of Samothrace. These two famous statues are full of mystery and history, and your guide will bring them to life with stories of their meanings and origins.

You'll also see Eugene Delacroix's Liberty Leading the People. A symbol of French independence, strength and culture, it is the most politically important work at the Louvre. The painting is the most famous artistic depiction of the French Revolution and is often compared to the Washington Crossing the Delaware piece found in New York at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

What else will you see? How about an impeccable statue of Athena the Greek goddess of war, the hermaphrodite sculpture by Bernini, and the famous Coronation of Napoleon by Jacques-Louis David. These works just might wow you even more than the Mona Lisa, which you won’t miss on this Louvre tour.

Free Time for a Parisian Lunch

After your Louvre experience, you’ll have some free time in central Paris to grab a bite to eat before the next part of your tour. Lunch isn’t included, but your local guide will have plenty of recommendations for restaurants and cafes nearby.

Paris Boat Tour with Champagne

After a guided metro ride across the city, you’ll board a local clipper boat for a 1-hour cruise through Paris. Seine River cruises are a great way to take in the ambiance of the city and get a taste of the luxury that Paris is known for. You'll enjoy a complimentary glass of champagne (or a soft drink) as you cruise around the sites of the city, and your guide will tell stories of Paris as you pass the Louvre, Musée d’Orsay, Notre Dame, and more. As your boat ride comes to an end, you'll see the spectacular and most iconic sight in Paris up close as you approach the Eiffel Tower.

The Seine River stretches almost 500 miles through France from Dijon to the English Channel, but is most famous for the section that runs through Paris. After a short ride on the metro with your guide, you’ll board a local clipper boat for a 1-hour cruise through the city, taking in sites such as the Louvre, Musée d’Orsay, Notre Dame, and more. Relax and enjoy a complimentary glass of champagne (or a soft drink) as you cruise along the river towards the most famous Paris landmark of all—the Eiffel Tower.

Eiffel Tower Second Floor

One of the world’s most recognizable landmarks, setting foot on the iconic tower is simply a must-do when you’re in Paris. The line to ascend the Eiffel Tower can get very long, but you won’t need to worry about that! With your skip-the-line tickets, you’ll breeze past the main admission line for priority access to the elevator which takes you up to the second floor. Looking out over the city from 377 feet up is a true once-in-a-lifetime experience!

Before your guide departs and leaves you to enjoy the epic views, you’ll hear about remarkable the construction of the Eiffel Tower and its meaning to the French people.. Built over the course of 27 months and finished in 1889, the tower was named after Gustave Eiffel, although it was really designed by two of his employees, Émile Nouguier and Maurice Koechlin. The inspiration for the tower actually came from a wooden structure that used to stand in New York!
