Tickets to visit the Louvre museum or to go up the Eiffel tower:

We can arrange time slot tickets to be able to skip the normal lines. However, this doesn’t always mean zero standing in line, so bear in mind that a visit here can take up to 2 hours overall. The slots for both the Louvre and the Eiffel tower need booking far in advance (3 months is advisable) as they get booked up very quickly.
