Full description
See the best Paris has to offer on a 4-hour combined tour. Start out by hopping on board an air-conditioned double-decker bus to take in the city’s top sights. Discover Paris and travel through time with a Histopad, a tablet with interactive functionalities that will allow you to experience the history of Paris throughout the centuries. Visit the most famous neighborhoods and monuments of this capital, enhanced with 3D reconstructions, 2D before and after sliders, 360-degree views of the interiors, enriched with audio commentary.  

Next you’ll cruise along the Seine River on a glass-enclosed trimaran - one of the Bateaux Parisiens - perfect for sightseeing. Your cruise departs from the base of the Eiffel Tower.

On board the river cruise, you can listen to commentary, lyrics, and music evoking the city's past, broadcast through individual handsets. The audio is available in 13 languages and features a children's version, available in French only.

From the water you’ll enjoy spectacular views of the Musée d'Orsay, Notre-Dame Cathedral, the Louvre, Concorde Square, the Chaillot Palace, and other major sites as you cruise along the world-famous river.

Finally, you will visit the most famous monument in Paris - the Eiffel Tower. Ascend to the 2nd floor for stunning views of the City of Light. Upgrade your tour to go all the way up to the summit for even more breathtaking views (if summit option selected). Although the tour ends here, you’re welcome to stay as long as you like to enjoy the aerial views of Paris!

We exchanged our vouchers for tickets without any problem. Our guide was very informative and clear. The Seine cruise was disappointing only because the on board earphones were not all working. We thoroughly enjoyed the Eiffel Tower. The wait was no more than half an hour. We could do the Seine cruise in our own time frame.

The tour was good but I wish we had more time to see key points while on the bus....the bus didn't stop long enough to take pictures. However, in all fairness, Paris was experiencing a national strike so the traffic was outrageous. All in all, I still would recommend this tour. Thankyou.

The bus experience was awful. We had seats at upper floor which we booked mount in advance, after first stop when we returned to bus for the actual city site seeing our seats were occupied and we have to move down since there were no empty seats available upstairs. When I asked attendant for help, she said just find a seat !
