8 hours in Paris -- next week

I'll be with my two kids, ages 11 and 13, who want to go up the Eiffel Tower. We plan to take the RER from Gare du Nord to Notre Dame for a quick look around (maybe climb the towers if the wait is not long), then ice cream at Berthillons or maybe lunch. Then hoof it to the Eiffel Tower. My question: how long of a walk from Notre Dame to the Eiffel Tower? And what's the best route -- right or left bank? Should we get pre-purchased tickets to go up the tower, or will the wait on a Wednesday in early November not be too bad? And finally, is there a direct route back to Gare du Nord from Eiffel Tower on the subway? Or would taking a cab be faster? (Have an 8 p.m. train to catch back to London.) Thanks much.
