Seine River Cruise with Champagne

If a Seine River boat cruise isn’t already on your list of things to do in Paris, it really should be! Taking in all of the best landmarks in the City of Lights from the water comes highly recommended, and it's a great way to get different perspective on the French capital. Embrace the ambiance of Paris and enjoy a luxurious experience with your closest friends or family.

Whether your tour starts during the day or as the sun sets, this is a magical way to begin! As you a sip complimentary glass of champagne, 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.

Views from the Eiffel Tower Second Floor

Along with your private tour 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.

The star of the Paris skyline also offers the finest views over the rest of the city, so get your camera ready and take in the panoramic views of the French capital while it buzzes some 377 feet beneath you. It's the perfect way to end your unforgettable Paris tour, and you're welcome to stay and enjoy the views from the tower after the tour has finished too.

The Perfect Views at the Perfect Time

This private tour has start times available throughout the day, so you can choose the one that suits you best. If you're looking for an evening experience in Paris, then we highly recommend picking a later start time so you can 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 Paris.
