Built for the Worldâs fair of 1889, the Eiffel Tower was at first reviled by the 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, but with our expert guides you can do much more than that. 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.
And it doesnât end here, after your tour, make your way to the river Seine at your leisure and embark on a one-hour panoramic champagne cruise. Discover the most famous sights of the city, including spectacular views of the Louvre, Notre Dame and the MusÃ©e d'Orsay, as well as the beautiful banks of the river Seine, so remarkable that they are classified as a UNESCO World Heritage Center.
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.
