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.

Amber, our tour guide, was awesome. Unfortunately, it was very rainy and windy the day we went, yet we were easily able to convert our climb to use the elevator instead (for a reasonable upcharge). Amber pointed out the major sights outside and then smartly brought us inside to get hot cocoa to warm up. She then shared all of the stories behind the different buildings, which were interesting and memorable!

Akaki was a wonderful guide, very informational and interesting. The tour company only offers 2 different price chooses adult and child but at the tower there are 3, Adult, Jr and child. So I paid for 4 adults but they paid for 2 adults and 2 jr. Saving themselves money.

The tour was awesome. I like it from how the website sent us reminding email before the date. On the tour day the staff was at the meeting point on time. The checking was quick and convenient. Akaki was our guide yesterday. He was very active, friendly, as well informative. He was also very encouraging during the climb, cheering up and waiting at the end of the stairs giving high five to all members. lol I'd definitely love to recommend you to buy this tour.
