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, lunch at the Eiffel Tower and see the Notre-Dame Cathedral from the outside.
The tour starts from our office in the center of Paris, where you will meet your guide who will take you straight to the famous Louvre Museum. You'll discover the main artworks: the Venus of Milo, The Wedding at Cana, the Coronation of Napoleon and Leonardo da Vinci’s famous Mona Lisa.
After the 2-hour tour of the Louvre Museum, you'll board a Batobus boat to reach the Eiffel Tower where lunch awaits you. This short cruise will cross the superb bridges over the Seine and pass by Paris' monuments that stand along the banks. Your guide will let you disembark to go to the "58 tour Eiffel" restaurant.

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.
