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 and 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 ascended all the way by elevator. Upon arrival at the first level, take a well-earned break. Stand on the new glass floor, and experience an interactive exhibit. En route to the second level, hear little-known fun facts about the tower's original color and its twinkling lights. Experience a unique sense of accomplishment upon arriving at the 2nd level. Your guide will tell you about the monuments you can see below, such as the Sacre-Coeur, the Arc de Triomphe and the Champs-Élysées. Then, continue your adventure on your own by taking the elevator to the tower's summit. Once there, see Gustave Eiffel’s office, and admire the views over Paris from high up. When you are ready, take the elevator back down to street level to continue with your day.

A very interesting tour! We have been to the Eiffel Tower several times, but had booked a tour for the first time. It was definitely worth it. Our guide Sara was a walking encyclopedia and made the two hours very entertaining! That made you want more and we will definitely book guided tours again the next time you visit.

Positive: using the stairs gives you a completely different feeling, I would always prefer the elevator. Caution! Burning thighs: D so completely without it is not but it is definitely doable! The tour was fun and we got a lot of information about Paris and the Eiffel Tower negative: from floor 3 you can only take the elevator up to the top, we had to wait 45-60 minutes at the queue. So the preferred ticket is only for the entrance below. The wait was very annoying. But our supervisor said that she was experiencing it so full for the first time. Maybe it was just an exception

Wir hatten bei der Tour großen Glück. Nicht nur, dass wir tolles Wetter hatten und wenig los war, hatten wir auch noch einen tollen Guide, Kamela. Sie hat uns vieles interessantes über den Eiffelturm erzählt, aber auch über die anderen Sehenswürdigkeiten von Paris. Man konnte alles mögliche Fragen und bekam auch einen guten Einblick in das Leben von Paris und seinen Bewohnern. Wir bekamen auch noch Tipps von ihr, welche Restaurants sie empfehlen kann, oder wie wir den Tag noch gut gestalten könnten. Es war eine sehr angenehme und ungezwungene Atmosphäre. Kann die Tour jedem empfehlen. Sie ist jeden Cent wert. Vielen Dank Kamela für diese tolle Tour.
