Afterward, hop back on the bus and continue sightseeing at your leisure. At stop #13, hop off for your Eiffel Tower tour. Upon checkout, you will select a time slot for your visit.

At this point, your guide will leave you to enjoy the breathtaking views at your leisure. When ready, make your way to the tower's summit. The lines for the summit elevator can get a little long.

Too many people everywhere! Maybe it was the holiday season or what I am not sure, but it was all too much. You won’t find a space in most buses. Go for private transport if you can afford.
The only suggestion I have is that they should have an option to extend the priority access to both the museums.
Awesome trip to Paris. My husband and I are museum nuts and this tour helped us in being flexible about the time we could spend at each attraction. It couldn’t have been possible in a regular tour bus. The cruise and skip the line tickets are almost a bonus!
