The Eiffel Tower in Paris, France.

Everyone knows that Paris is the most romantic city in the world, so there was always going to be huge demand for tickets to see the city of love. In fact, it was such a popular destination with our customers that we had to up our capacity on trips by 20%. And why not? With its rich history and culture, breathtaking architecture and fantastic food, this is without question one of the best places on earth to visit. The Eiffel Tower alone is worth the price of admission – thankfully the Seine River Cruise is included too!
