Why You Shouldn’t Miss This
The Eiffel Tower and Seine Cruise are the most sought after activities in Paris. These tickets not only give you a combination ticket at cutthroat prices! They let you skip the line!
The Eiffel Tower represents French history and culture, unlike any other monument. With over 7 million visitors thronging the Tower annually, the monument continues to grow in stature. The Tower also offers stunning views of Paris. The 2nd level observation deck is at the perfect height to help you identify neighboring districts of Montmartre, Champs Elysees, and others with your naked eyes. A visit to the summit of the Eiffel gives you access to the highest viewpoint in Paris. You are bound to be greeted by strong winds and at times, you can feel the Eiffel shake slightly.
Coming to the Seine Cruise, it is undoubtedly one of the best ways to sightsee Paris. Since the Seine runs through the heart of Paris, there are many landmarks that lie on the banks of the Seine. The river gently flows through the center of the city and as you take a cruise along the Seine, you will be able to see iconic Parisian landmarks such as the Notre Dame Cathedral, the Louvre Museum, Eiffel Tower, Conciergerie, Invalides, the Assemblee Nationale and the Place de la Concorde.
Upon confirmation of your booking, you will receive two separate vouchers. One each for Eiffel Tower and the Seine Cruise. Each of these will contain detailed information regarding redemption details and timings. The Eiffel Tower is the only timed experience of this combo and will require you to be there at the exact given time. The Seine cruise tickets are valid for the entire day and can be redeemed per your convenience
Eiffel Tower Summit Tickets
Meet up with the host at the designated meeting point and follow him to the priority entrance gate of the Eiffel Tower. The host leaves with the group for the Eiffel Tower 15 mins before the tour start time, so we suggest you get here early. Following a routine security check, you will be guided to the famous Eiffel elevators that will take you straight to the 2nd level observation deck.
From here, you can enjoy views of neighboring Parisian attractions such as the Seine River, Montmartre district, Notre Dame, Champs Elysees and others. If you are in the mood for some thrills and frills, we’d suggest you take the stairs down to the 1st level. This is the largest level on the tower and has a see-through floor in place. The feeling of walking on this transparent floor is unique and is bound to give you the chills.
Once you’re done enjoying the views and have had your Eiffel fix for the day, you may take the elevators back down. Fair warning, these can have long queues and your tickets don't give you priority entry on the way out. If you wish to bypass these long lines, we’d suggest you take the stairs down.

Your cruise is also inclusive of audio commentary, thus making this a holistic experience. Similar to the Louvre Museum access tickets, the Seine Cruise tickets will be valid for a year and can be picked up at Port de la Bourdonnais, 75007 Paris in exchange for the confirmation voucher.

We couldn't decide on what's more important: The Eiffel Tower or the Seine Cruise, and we ended up taking both in this super attractive combo. Turns out you can visit the second floor and also enjoy a minimalistic evening aboard a cruise at slashed prices. Wow.
I've seen several combos on Headout before, but I didn't know if I could take a chance. However, I booked this one for my trip to Paris in summer and ended up benefitting greatly from it. It's better to make fuss free bookings from a single medium rather than running around from one place to another and juggling long queues. Recommended.
The interactive commentary in the Seine river cruise was a surprise! We really enjoyed listening to what was being narrated. And of course, the iconic Eiffel Tower looked even better beneath the moon light. There's nothing better than this combo, i suggest grabbing on to it before it is sold out.
