Full description
See the best of Paris with this tour combining a guided Eiffel Tower visit with tickets to the Arc de Triomphe as well as a river cruise. Accompany your guide to the Eiffel Tower and visit the second floor, with an option to visit the summit. Then, use your Arc de Triomphe and river cruise tickets on any other day before their expiration.   The Eiffel Tower offers panoramic views of the city—see iconic monuments such as the golden dome of les Invalides and the remains of Notre Dame de Paris. Enjoy a bird’s eye view of the Egyptian obelisk at Place de la Concorde and the magnificent roof of the Grand Palais. If you select the summit option on booking, ascend even higher to see out past the city entirely, and check this activity off your bucket list.   Then, within 3 months of purchase, board a panoramic river boat for a 1-hour cruise along the Seine River that starts from the base of the Eiffel Tower, with service that runs every 30 to 60 minutes. See some of Paris’s iconic monuments closer up on this relaxing tour through the city.   You’ll also receive open tickets to visit the Arc de Triomphe, a neoclassical monument built in the ancient Roman style. Located at the center of the city, the view from the top is absolutely worth it—see the streets radiate out from this center point in a star-shaped pattern. At the base, visit the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, which pays tribute to the 1.3 million French soldiers who died during the First World War. Observe the eternal flame being lit at 6:30 PM every night and wander the exhibition that explains the symbolic importance of this monument.

Meet in front of a cafe near the Eiffel Tower. There was no one standing with a signboard, and the procedure was not done in an indoor office, so I was a little worried about where it really was. People from various countries have made reservations. It feels like a lot of people are gathering on the sidewalk at the meeting time. I applied in Japanese and thought that English guidance would be fine if I just want to see the scenery, but if there is an irregularity, the explanation is in English, so it is not suitable for people who do not understand English. Unfortunately, we were not able to visit the Eiffel Tower on the day we attended. If you search on Google, the letters of the Eiffel Tower closure. But we don't understand English. After the explanation of the staff, the people who gathered will disband for some reason. We can't understand what the staff are saying. I don't know what's going on. Still, I was able to receive a ticket for the Seine river cruise and the

Excellent choice for those who want to save money and enjoy their time! The guide was very friendly, took pictures in the tower for everyone and explained the whole story very well and relaxed! We didn't face queues, the meeting point was very easy. We could choose the time to go on the triumphal arch and on the boat ride! Which made us more comfortable to stay at home for a while! The climb to the tower was incredible, but we only went to the second floor because the top was under renovation! I highly recommend this ticket!

I really liked it but in the end we ended up doing the math and if we had bought it on the official websites it would have been cheaper so the 10min guide doesn't make up for the difference in prices. In addition, the waiting time at the meeting point is not worth it because everyone knows how to get to the Eiffel Tower
