Your Paris sightseeing includes an elevator ride to the second floor of the Eiffel Tower, where you’ll be treated to great views of the city. </BR> </BR>This European tour also includes majestic scenery, such as a romantic Rhine cruise, a stop at spectacular Rhine Falls, Europe’s largest waterfall, and an exciting ride on the high-speed Eurostar train.
