Skip the Line at the Eiffel Tower
Whether it's your first time in Paris or you're visiting again with family or friends, a trip up the Eiffel Tower is always a memorable experience. We think you should remember those epic views … and not the long lines! Book an Eiffel Tower Skip the Line Tour for priority access and a guided experience to the top. Once you've reached the top level, you're free to spend as much time as you would like to take in the views – and take photos, too.
Avoid Overwhelm at the Louvre and Musée d'Orsay
While you'll certainly want to see the most famous works of art at the Louvre and the Impressionist masterpieces at the Musée d'Orsay, these two museums can easily overwhelm. Even if you're usually the type of traveler who tackles museums on your own, the scale of these two museums really makes a guided tour advantageous. Skip the lines and get the most out of your visit with an expert private guide who can tailor your tour precisely to your interests. This private 3-hour tour of the Louvre is perfect for first-timers and art history devotees alike. See the highlights of the Musée d'Orsay's rich collection on this private tour with an art historian guide who will bring this vibrant period of French art to life.

Seine River Dinner Cruise
The Seine runs right through the heart of Paris and a boat cruise is the most relaxing and beautiful way to take in Paris's landmarks. The great thing is that they run all throughout the day and into the night, making it easy to find one that fits in with your schedule. However, for an unforgettable experience, book an Aperitif Cruise or a Dinner Cruise on the Seine. Sit back, relax and watch the lights sparkle at night while the dramatically lit sights like Notre Dame, the Grand Palais, the romantic bridges and, of course, the Eiffel Tower glide past. Dates and times do fill up, so it's a great idea to book in advance.
