Paris View Sunset

An Enchanting View

A bewitching experience at the most magical time of day, this tour is timed perfectly so you have the best chance to watch the sunset from Paris’s most famous vantage point – the Eiffel Tower.

Sunset Eiffel Tower

A Sunset to Remember

There's no better way to spend the end of your day of sightseeing than witnessing Paris's exceptional nighttime transformation.


Experience the stunning beauty of one of the world's most celebrated engineering marvels, and France's most beloved icon at the magical time of day when the setting sun gives over to Paris by night. Originally built by Gustave Eiffel for the 1889 Universal Exposition, it literally towers over the surrounding skyline at 1,063 feet, and is the most visited paid monument on the planet. That said, visiting the Eiffel Tower specifically for a sunset tour is a rare chance to take in the spectacle from an extraordinary perspective, as colors, shadows and lights seem to dance before your very eyes!

Prior to heading up, your City Wonders guide will show you the best vantage points to observe this incredible feat of architecture from the ground, reveling you with exciting and informative stories from its history to the present, including the many building challenges it posed.

You will then be led past the seemingly endless lines at the entrance, and straight up to the second level where you will stand in awe of Paris below you. Your guide will then point out other famous monuments, and major sights lit up for the occasion with more amazing commentary about this magnificent city.

At the conclusion of your visit to the 2nd floor* you will have the opportunity to purchase tickets for access to the summit, which you will be able to do at your own pace. If you never want to forget your trip to the Eiffel Tower, the sunset tour is sure to thrill you with a unique portrait of this fascinating destination.

Erwan is an exceptional guide...

Erwan is an exceptional guide. He was extremely knowledgeable about the history of the tower and of many historical events that were connected even in small ways. He was lovely and encouraged everyone to participate so it wasn't just a dry lecture as we walked around.
