The Complete Paris Tour: Guided Walking Tour of Paris, the Louvre and Lunch at the Eiffel Tower

Spend a day exploring Paris in a very unusual way. This excursion on foot and river boat will show you the highlights of Paris: visit the Louvre Museum, have lunch at the Eiffel Tower, and see the Notre-Dame Cathedral.

First stop is the famous Louvre Museum. Your guide will take you through this must-see museum and tell you about the main artworks: the Venus of Milo statue representing the goddess Aphrodite, the impressive painting of The Wedding at Cana, the Coronation of Napoleon illustrating the emperor’s crowning in the Notre-Dame Cathedral, and Leonardo da Vinci’s famous Mona Lisa which is the most visited work in the Museum.

After your tour of the Louvre Museum which takes about 1.30 hours, your guide will take you to the river bank, before the Pont du Carrousel, to board a Batobus boat. The boat will take you to the Eiffel Tower where lunch awaits you. This short cruise will show you Paris from a different angle. You will see some of the superb bridges over the Seine and Paris monuments along the banks. The boat moors at the Quai de la Bourdonnais at the foot of the Trocadéro, right opposite the Iron Lady.

Next is lunch at the ephemeral terrace of the Eiffel Tower, located on the 1st floor.

Menu* (Subject to change)

French platter: Assortment of Charcuterie or Mixed or Vegetarian

Hot side: Soup, Truffade (potatoes with Cantal cheese) or other specialty made with potatoes

Dessert: Fruit tart or Pastry (Tropézienne or Paris-Brest)

Drinks: Water 1 glass of wine or beer or soft Coffee

Your guide will then take you back to the river shuttle. After about 20 minutes of cruising on the Seine, the boat arrives at the foot of the Île de la Cité in the historic center of Paris. You will enjoy 30 minutes of visiting the exterior with your guide, who will tell you more about this iconic cathedral.

The tour ends close to Notre-Dame Cathedral, so that you can explore the Île de la Cité at your own pace or keep admiring the Cathedral from the outside.
