Our guide to Essential Paris - Skip the Line Eiffel Tower Lunch, Paris City Tour and Seine Cruise

Your tour of Paris by air-conditioned panoramic coach will last for one and a half hours: learn about the city's history and its well-known monuments thanks to our audio guide commentary (individual headsets).

Your tour will visit some unique sights, such as Place de l’Opéra Square, Place de la Concorde Square, the Champs-Élysées, the Arc de Triomphe, Place du Trocadéro Square, the Eiffel Tower, the Invalides, the Pont-Neuf Bridge, the Bastille Opera House and its square, Notre Dame de Paris, the Luxembourg Gardens, and Saint Germain des Prés.

During the city tour in a panoramic bus, enthralling recorded commentaries will reveal the habits of Paris people and how they perceive their city. You will discover how the architecture of Paris evolved throughout the years. You will pass by its main monuments and go through its greatest neighbourhoods so that you will find your bearings in Paris: the Champs-Elysées overlooked by the Arc de Triomphe, the Ile de la Cité with the Notre-Dame Cathedral at its heart, the Louvre Museum and its pyramid, without forgetting the Eiffel Tower.

Children have their own commentaries too. They will listen to the story of Lulu and Maurice, two dogs that will show them Paris. All along the tour, Lulu and Maurice tell them many anecdotes about the dogs of famous figures, such as Napoleon and Marie Antoinette. Children will be delighted to visit Paris in a fun way.

Enjoy a memorable lunch at the Eiffel Tower. The "58 Tour Eiffel" restaurant is located on the 1st floor of the Eiffel Tower, as uninterrupted views of Paris stretch out as far as the eye can see. This chic and contemporary restaurant has the feel of a Parisian brasserie. Taste fresh seasonal produce with our three-course menu.

Lunch will be served as a picnic for even more friendliness. You will enjoy this lunch consisting of a three-dish menu allowing you to eat at your own pace while contemplating the panoramic view of Paris.
