Looking for a truly unforgettable way to spend a night in Paris? Want to experience the jaw-dropping view from the summit of the Eiffel Tower, while the tower lights sparkle around you? How about cruising along the famous Seine River with a glass of champagne? This special small group tour lets you do all three! With an entertaining local guide, you'll tick off two of Paris' true bucket-list activities and create memories that will last a lifetime.

  • Ascend the Eiffel Tower
  • Elevator access to second floor and summit
  • Seine River cruise
  • See Paris' iconic monuments
  • Sip champagne on the water
  • Learn the history of the Tower
  • Eiffel Tower sparkle
  • Incredible views of Paris
  • A true bucket-list experience
  • Capture the perfect vacation moment

Skip-the-line tickets for the Eiffel Tower summit are in extremely high demand, so don't hesitate to make your dream of seeing Paris from the top of the tower come true. After meeting your guide near to Eiffel Tower, at the bottom of the steps at the corner of Pont d'Iena and Quai Branly, you’ll first board a river boat for one of the most romantic ways to see Paris. With a glass of champagne in hand, you’ll cruise along the Seine River taking in many of the city’s most iconic sites.

Next up is an experience you'll remember forever! You’ll skip the line to ascend to second floor and then the summit of the Eiffel Tower as it glitters with light. Here you’ll enjoy the ultimate view of Paris at its best—with the city lights illuminating the night sky.

If this evening Eiffel Tower summit tour is sold out on the night you're planning to visit, check out our morning summit tour where you'll climb the stairs to the second floor, then take the elevator to the summit without the evening crowds! Or book our tickets that guarantee entry to the Eiffel Tower's first and second floors without the river cruise, if you're in a hurry.

Eiffel Tower Summit Tour Description

Your 3-hour evening tour includes:

  • 1-hour river cruise of the Seine

  • Complimentary glass of champagne or other soft drink

  • Skip-the-line access to Eiffel Tower second floor and summit

  • A fun, English-speaking guide

  • Maximum group size of 15

Seine River Cruise

After meeting your group near to the Eiffel Tower, you'll follow your expert local guide onto the riverboat, where you can request your glass of champagne (or soft drink) and enjoy the romantic views of Paris in the twinkling hours of dusk. Seine River cruises are the perfect way to enjoy the ambiance that the City of Light is known for. Cruise by the highlights of the city, including the Louvre, Musée d’Orsay, Notre Dame, and the Eiffel Tower lit up in all its glory.

Eiffel Tower Summit

The best time to ascend the Eiffel Tower is after dark, when the lights of the city and the Iron Lady shine brightly against the night sky. With your included skip-the-line tickets, your local Parisian guide will lead you past the crowds to the second floor. Along the way, you'll hear stories about the construction of the Eiffel Tower and its meaning to the French people, as well as some fascinating tales about the history of Paris.

Many people only book tickets to the second floor, which has great views too, but your tickets will take you to the most iconic spot in all of Paris. The summit elevator ride is an experience in itself, so don't forget to have your camera ready as you rise to the top of the famous tower.

From this height, you'll see every monument below as you take in the incredible panoramic view of the City of Light. You'll also be allowed to remain at the summit until it closes after your tour ends, and you'll even find a conveniently located champagne bar up there!

Please note that the line to descend the Eiffel summit can take up to half an hour during the busiest nights in the summer.
