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 coordinator, wearing blue and holding a “climbing tour” sign, will be waiting in the gardens which are located in front of the security entrance. They will be on the pathway called “Allée Léon Bourgeois”, standing by the cream-colored residential building. Please exchange your voucher at the meeting point.

      Was very well organised except I would say read the information on how to obtain your ticket Cos we just queued up in the security queue and went through and thought our tickets were already on our app but you have to find your guide outside in the garden before you go in the security. The actual tour was really good and the guide was lovely x

      This was an amazing way to experience the Eiffel Tower, but be prepared to climb 669 steps total! You take the steps to the first level, which has places to eat as well as a famous clear glass floor (in certain areas) to walk on and experience. You also take a break before you climb to the second level! Once you climb to the second level you get amazing views of the entire city! Our guide was so knowledgeable on giving us the history of the Eiffel Tower!

      Stunning!

      I had booked for a friend and myself. Not understanding the walking component fully, my friend chose not to take the tour due to health issues. Sam was my personal tour guide. He was extremely informative and helpful. We walked at my pace which was considerably slower than I am sure Sam is usually and I was very thankful. He was correct. Improved Customer Satisfaction when you have input into the experience is very accurate. I thouroughly enjoyed my experience. Thank you Sam!
