Begin your tour near the base of the Eiffel Tower where your expert guide will give you an introduction to the structure. From here, walk with your guide to the ticket desk of the Eiffel Tower where you’ll have your first opportunity for a close-up look at the monument while we arrange your tickets.

Please note that during busy periods, there may be a wait to clear the line for the stairs and security. This comprehensive tour is typically scheduled to last for 2 hours, though wait times at security checks can sometimes increase the tour duration. If there is a wait, your guide will use this time to explain the fascinating history of the Tower’s creation.

As you climb the steps directly up to the second level, you will marvel as the City of Light emerges before your eyes and your guide shares the fascinating background of the architectural wonder that made Gustave Eiffel famous. On the second floor, you'll be able to take in the city's most iconic landmarks including the Arc de Triomphe, Champs-Élysées, and Notre Dame while enjoying your guide's insightful and entertaining commentary.


Upon booking upgrade your Eiffel Tower experience by adding a visit to the highest level: the summit! After arriving at the second floor, you’ll be given free time to go above and beyond the ordinary and ascend to the summit (3rd level) by the comfort of an elevator for the best panoramic views that the city has to offer.Your guide will accompany you straight to the Summit, give you some free time to enjoy the panoramic views before returning to the 2nd floor to carry on with your panoramic tour.

Occasionally, due to situations beyond our control such as inclement weather or other circumstances, the summit may be temporarily closed upon your arrival to the Eiffel Tower. In these cases, the group will not be able to access the summit, even if it reopens while we are inside the tower. Should this occur, you will receive a refund for the difference in cost of accessing the summit.

Once you’re finished admiring the spectacular views, you can choose to take the stairs or the elevator back to the ground floor to continue your Parisian adventure!
