Evening tickets for the Eiffel Tower are in high demand, so don't hesitate to book your perfect tour in Paris! After meeting your friendly local guide near the riverbank at the bottom of the steps at Pont d'Iena and Quai Branly, your tour begins with a boat cruise along the Seine River. With a glass of champagne (or a soft drink) in hand, you’ll cruise along the Seine River for an hour, taking in many of the city’s most iconic sites before reaching the Eiffel Tower.

Next, your guide will help you skip the line for an experience you'll remember forever! With your elevator tickets, you'll head to second floor of the Eiffel Tower and you’ll enjoy the ultimate view of Paris. After your tour has finished, you can choose to stay at the tower for as long as you like (or until it closes).

If this tour is sold out on the day you're planning to come to the Eiffel Tower, try booking our other popular day tour of the Eiffel Tower that also goes to the second floor and includes a Seine River cruise! Or you can book tickets that guarantee entry to the first and second floors of the Eiffel Tower during the day without the cruise.

  • One glass of champagne (or a soft drink)

  • Skip-the-line elevator tickets for the Eiffel Tower second floor

Paris Boat Tour Along the Seine

You'll begin your Paris experience with a magical cruise along the famous Seine River, enjoying the romantic views of the city. Follow your expert local guide onto the riverboat for your 1-hour ride along the river, with a refreshing glass of champagne (or soft drink) included.

Seine River cruises are the perfect way to enjoy the ambiance that the City of Light is known for. Float by the highlights of the city, including the Louvre, Musée d’Orsay, Notre Dame, and the Eiffel Tower in all its glory.

After your guide has introduced you to the tower, they'll wave goodbye and leave you to enjoy the unforgettable panoramic view of Paris. It's a special experience that'll stay with you forever as you look out over the Champs de Mars and the iconic skyline of the City of Lights!

What's the best time to book this tour?

Each start time will include magical views as the sun begins to set. You'll simply need to decide how late you want to stay at the Eiffel Tower and choose the best start time for you. Please note that there can often be lines to descend from the second floor during the summer.

If this evening tour is sold out on the day you're planning to come to the Eiffel Tower, try booking our Day Tour of the Eiffel Tower that also goes to the second floor and includes a Seine River cruise!
