Meet your friendly guide and small group of 20 people or fewer at a location close to the Eiffel Tower and enjoy a short stroll to the base of the tower as your guide tells you the fascinating stories behind this radical structure and her creator, Gustave Eiffel. Built for the World’s Fair of 1889, the Eiffel Tower was at first reviled by Parisians and almost torn down, but she defied her critics, outlasting them all to become one of the best-loved monuments in the city, if not the world.
Nowadays, crowds from all over the world flock to see her. Bypass the long lines and go straight to the summit, offering some of the best panoramic views of the city. After all, Gustave Eiffel himself had his apartment at the top of his inimitable building! Peek into his private apartment before going to the second floor. There, your guide will point out the most famous sites and monuments, offering not only historical and cultural information, but also tips on the best ways to visit the unmissable sights of this beautiful city. Montmartre, the Arc de Triomphe, Notre Dame, and the golden dome of the Invalides — the whole city is at your feet.
It doesn’t end there. After your tour, make your way to the Seine River at your leisure and embark on a 1-hour panoramic Champagne cruise. Discover the most famous sights of the city, including spectacular views of the Louvre, Notre Dame and the Musée d'Orsay, as well as the beautiful banks of the Seine, so remarkable that they are classified as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Enjoy the views in style as you sip on a glass of fine French Champagne. You can opt to take the cruise at any time of the day; savor the beauty of the sun setting over the city, or wait until dark and delight in the City of Lights sparkling before you.
