Covid-19 Update

Due to health and safety regulations, this itinerary may change. See Know before you go for the latest updates.

Meet your guide to hear an introduction about the iconic tower and its creator. Then, enter the tower to climb up 704 steps over 30 flights. Catch your breath at the provided rest stops and see a side of the Eiffel Tower you would miss if you took the elevator. Upon arrival at the first level, take a well-earned break. Stand on the new glass floor, and explore the interactive exhibit telling the story of the monument's construction. Once you've reached the 2nd level observation deck, experience a unique sense of accomplishment. Take in the views of all the sights surrounding you and hear about the monuments and districts you can see from your guide, such as Montparnasse, Les Invalides, the Sacre-Coeur, the Arc de Triomphe and the Champs-Élysées.

      The tour guide shop was really easy to find, staff are polite and friendly. JB the tour guide was fantastic, he spoke brilliant English and was able to provide a very in-depth and detailed description about the Eiffel tower and the surrounding area. Throughly enjoyed the tour and would recommend taking the tour to anyone.

      Had a great guild, talked a lot of the history of Paris and the tower

      I would recommend the Ascend of the Eiffel Tower to everyone. Walking up and we decided to walk back down was a very good experience. You could see how the tower was constructed as well as see the beautiful city scenery. We went up late in the afternoon and enjoyed the sunset as well as the skyline of the city lights.

      Great experience once it started.

      Not impressed with customer service initially. Told we had only booked to half of what we'd paid for. Had to prove we had paid for the full experience - luckily I had the evidence
