  • Eiffel Tower and Evening Illumination Cruise was fantastic! Tour guide was very informative and helpful. He got us through the Eiffel Tower lne very fast. While waiting for the elevator at the Eiffel Tower our guide arranged entrainment see video.

  • The skip the line for the Eiffel Tower was good. The evening cruise was packed with people, thank goodness I had done this tour on another trip. We found people to be rude and pushing to get to front.

  • Why would you line up for ages when you can skip the lines with 'tours' like this. A great way to get up Eiffel quickly. Views are spectacular. just wish the champagne bar hadn't closed for afternoon siesta just when I got there. Time you Siene cruise for twilight as Paris lights up for you. A great way to pass an hour!

  • The host of the Eiffel tour sector was very good and extremely efficient but this was not a guided tour- just express entry tickets. The boat cruise was fine... no commentary provided but a good cruise up and down the Siene.

  • Nothing special with this tour, the guide met you and gave you your tickets to get you through the line and gave some information on the tower. I would recommend this tour if you are an independent traveler and comfortable with navigating on your own.

  • This wasn't a tour with a guide. It's basically follow this person who will get you in a separate entrance and they will point you to where you catch the boat later. For what it was it worked well. You still have some line and some wait but probably significantly less than the main line.

  • Excellent cruise and wonderful to skip the line at the Eiffel Tower.

  • Excellent experience. The guide who met us with the tickets and took us to the Tower was awesome. Explained everything and was very courteous and nice. Avoided a 1-1/2 hour wait using skip-the-line. The cruise along the river was also very beautiful. Highly recommend this tour for a great overview of the area and quick entrance to the Eiffel Tower.

  • The lines into the tower weren't super long, so the skip the line feature was only of a mild benefit at this time of day. And our tour guide waited a super long time for 2 people who were running late and never showed up so we were at least 30 minutes behind schedule by that point. However, he was very funny and provided some interesting insights. The cruise was well worth it, as you get to see a different side of the city. Just bundle up if you go in Sept. or later... the wind keeps things very chilly.

  • It was great skipping the line at the Eiffel Tower while watching what seemed like thousands of people queuing to get in. We had plenty of time to go to the top of the Tower for only an extra few euros. The river cruise was wonderful especially seeing the Eiffel Tower lit up at night. Highly recommended this tour
