This is a wonderful tour...I am so glad we picked this one! We did 2 of the things on our must do list in Paris and got a bonus w/ the illumination tour that we hadn't even thought about! Paris is a beautiful city at night! We really feel like we got adequate time w/ each part of the tour...it was very organized and worth the money. I will use Viator for all my tour bookings from now on...

This tour was fantastic. My daughter loved it. Buying the Skip the line tickets in advance to this tour was well worth it, when travelling with children. Fantastic views from the 2nd floor of the Eiffel tower, 3rd floor was closed. Seine river was also great, specially when the lights come on. Nice sights and had a wonderful time with my wife and kid. A must to do if you are visiting Paris for the 1st time.

All three portions of the tour were excellent. Comfortable bus for the City tour. Great views from the Seine river tour and seeing the Eiffel Tower with sparkling lights at 10 PM was a once in a lifetime experience. The cost of the tour was an excellent value and I would highly recommend this three-part tour to anyone visiting Paris for the first time.

What a great introduction to Paris! Started with a Seine river cruise and took lots of great photos. Next we hopped back on the bus for a night tour of the monuments and ended up at the Eiffel Tower. We skipped the line and went to 2nd level for some great night time viewing and photos of the city. Highly recommend!


September 2015

We did this tour the first night in Paris and the evening was perfect. The river ride was at sunset and just gorgeous. The Effiel tower at night was unforgettable.

We did this tour on our first day in Paris. We arrived at the train station from London at 4 and raced over to the tour starting point. It was a very good tour or the Seine River. The bus tour around Paris was a little long probably would have been better at 1 hour. The trip to the Eiffel Tower was over the top and this tour was definitely worth the money.

The tour was excellent. We got a nice introduction to the city with the boat cruise and bus tour together. Being on the Eiffel Tower at night was magical!

We been going to Paris a long time, this was our fifth time, as you can imagine, we love Paris, this
particular tour Eiffel Tower, River Cruise and the Paris Illuminations Night tour is great, you also
have front of the line for the Tower. We always take the 6 oclock till 11:30Pm coach tour, the meeting
point is on Pyamind St., near the Opera House, get their early for a front seat they usely have two
buses, the river cruise last about a hour also. This is our second time taking this tour, well worth
the money, we always take a taxi back to our hotel after the tour, usely under 10 euro's for a
reasonable distance. Enjoy!!!

How beautiful is Paris at night. Lovely Seine River Cruise admiring the beautiful city, got to Eiffel tower at dusk and as we left there to start our bus tour to see Paris illuminated, the Eiffel tower lights came on and what a spectacular site. Was still a little light but the lights started to open as it got darker and of course just beautiful. I was told to make sure I do a night tour and this did not disappoint.
