Sebastian (from Argentina) was personable, polite, entertaining, knowledgeable and thorough! My husband and I enjoyed his tour until the end! He guided us over to The Eiffel Tower and got us through the line quickly! Don’t hesitate to book this tour along with the Seine boat ride!

The Eiffel Tower experience was fantastic with Rafielle, highly recommend that, however the river cruise was very disappointing. Long queues, and over crowded, noisy, the phones you hold for info were rubbish. We went at night and it was hard to see everything. Next time we will book a smaller, quieter and more personal cruise.

Rating 4.5/5. Traveled from USA. Exactly as advertised w/ ample time at tower and a pretty fantastic cruise. Minor detractions that prevented the 5/5 rating: 1) our guide (while super informative) was kind of passive and needed to be asked questions to do tour-guide things 2) Having anticipated wait times for river cruise would have been appreciated given we traveled during winterna dn it was pretty chilly
