        The cruise & illuminations were very good BUT the original plan was reversed, this was disappointing as it meant we got to the Eiffel Tower far too late (10.20pm!) We were really rushed through. I could have purchased (cheaper) tickets myself for that time. We also ended up making our own way back as the coach was staying for those who wanted to go up to the next level of the Tower. Still a good evening out but too late for a child.
