The voyage begins with an early evening stroll through the Trocadéro gardens, where you’ll have a spectacular view across the city to the Eiffel Tower. Your guide will tell you the rags-to-riches tale of how the Tower, once seen as an eyesore, became the beloved emblem of Paris.
When you embark, your small tour group will have exclusive use of the VIP area at the front of the boat, which offers uninterrupted views of the city lights.

Sparkling lights shimmer up and down the Eiffel Tower every hour, on the hour, and your cruise is perfectly timed to end with an up-close view of this transformative display. Finally, your guide will lead you off the boat, all the way past the famously long entrance lines, and up in the elevator to the Eiffel Tower’s second-level observation deck. Here you can buy a ticket to the very summit, or simply enjoy your guide’s stories as Paris sparkles with life and love far below.

Our tour guide did an outstanding job of entertaining us and ensured we all had a great Champagne cruise. He was also very knowledgable about about Paris and we go see other thing after the cruise. The skip the line at the Eiffel Tower was right on time especially on a rainy night. It was well worth it! Thanks for asking
Our tour guide was excellent! Great way to see the Eiffel Tower! Some walking to and from departure point.
Our guide Will was friendly and knowledgeable. The river ride with champagne was memorable and it was great to be able to skip the line at the Eiffel Tower. The views at night were stunning.
Our tour guide was AMAZING!!!!! He did an incredible job. Great personality. The snacks on the cruise were limited to Snickers bars. I'm allergic to chocolate so I'd suggest having chips and crackers of some sort available rather than candy bars.
My husband and I really enjoyed this tour, our guide was very personable and well prepared. We took a quick 20 minute guided tour around the Eiffel tower area and then an hour cruise on the Seine. We had the entire front of the boat to ourselves (just 20 in our group), great scenery and good champagne. Since we were stuck in the European heat wave (35+ degrees) the boat was an excellent place to be and the Eiffel Tower was amazing!
Rene our guide did an incredible job. He was extremely knowledgeable, personable and made the night very enjoyable. He took extra efforts to point out the best ways to maximize our experience.
Our guide, Hugo was knowledgeable and fun. Learned a lot more than we would exploring on our own. The cruise also helped us understand the layout of the city better.
Tour guide was very informative and fantastic.
Tour guide was very informative and fantastic.
We had a wonderful evening in Paris with our tour guide Henry, from City Visions. Henry is an outstanding guide and went above and beyond what we expected. Our Eiffel Tower and Seine River Cruise with champagne tour, was the highlight of our vacation in Paris. I highly recommend this tour.
The meeting place was very easy to find, we were met by Felix and Will. It was a surprise to find out that we would not be getting on the boat until 8:25, and that the Eiffel Tower tour would happen a lot later than we thought, therefore we had to cancel our dinner reservation for my friend’s 50th Birthday. Will was an excellent guide who gave us lots of interesting history and information about the area and the Eiffel Tower. He asked us questions which was a nice way to encourage group participation. It was disappointing to miss our dinner we did not get back to our hotel until 11:45 and ate dinner at a restaurant near our hotel. I think it should be made clearer about the length of the tour
Overall great combo tour. Especially our guide. He was extremely vivacious and talkative and knew so much about the history of Paris and the Eiffel Tower! Champagne wasn't bad either. :-) Lovely evening. Highly recommend it!!
Got to the meet up location early, first ones there. They waited until everyone was there and started handing out the audio gear for the tour, they were short 6-7 headphones. So we did not get to hear 90% of the tour. The guide was very nice and apologetic but I booked an audio tour so I could learn the most I could in a short time. We were on the summit for about 20 mins or less then rushed back down, didn't even walk the full area, stayed in one spot. Then we walk very briskly to get to the cruise dock and wait about 25 minutes for the boat to show up, we could've used that time to be up on top of the eiffel tower. Would not recommend doing this is if you are counting on this to be informative, reliable and your only tour for your stay.
This trip was perfect for our first night in Paris. Seeing the Eiffel Tower while skipping the line is definitely the way to go, and the Seine River Cruise gave us a wonderful overview of the city and what we might want to see in our remaining days in Paris. And all while sipping champagne! Our guide was knowledgeable and friendly. A great experience.
