Eiffel Tower: Our most recommended tours and activities

  • Eiffel Tower: Second Floor or Summit Direct Access

    1. Eiffel Tower: Second Floor or Summit Direct Access

    Save time at the Eiffel Tower and stay a step ahead of the crowds by choosing a direct access ticket to the second level or summit. Avoid the ticket booth lines at one of the world’s most-visited monuments. Meet the guide and enjoy a historic presentation about the Eiffel Tower. You’ll then be guided through security and inside the elevator as far as the second floor.

    Great experience - the tour guide was really lovely (I can't remember her name, she was petite and just the sweetest ever!!) We recommend going at night - when it lights up its so gorgeous. The only negative, there was absolutely no social distancing. In fact, it was encouraged to get closer. This was a bit stressful for us because we were trying our best to stay distanced (we were doing Covid tests whilst away to be able to come home) So we just would've liked the opportunity for distancing.

We met outside the Eiffel Tower and then walked up to the tower together. There everyone could go their own way and the waiting time was shortened, was bearable. The view from the tower is breathtaking! We recommend!

The tour guide presented entertaining and interesting facts and made the whole thing interesting. The immediate admission was definitely an advantage in the long lines at the ticket office!

Booking with direct entry only has advantages. If you still have a guide with you, you will get the tickets in advance.
