Full description
Check-in and meet your guide a five minute walk from the Tower. Once the group’s assembled, you’ll leave straight to the Eiffel Tower’s South Pillar. It is the only entrance for those brave enough to climb the 674 steps leading to the Tower’s second floor. There your guide will give you some historical details about the EIffel Tower. Climbing your way upwards, you’ll go through the first floor. Your guide will show you the recently added but already famous glass floor. They will lead you to the multimedia room where you’ll learn even more background details regarding the Iron Lady. If there’s any room left, you’ll be given the opportunity to book a table at the “58 Tour Eiffel” restaurant. After a quick rest, you’ll certainly be ready to ascend towards the second floor. As soon as you’ve reached the second floor, you’ll have a quick look around and your guide will entertain and inform you with a historical speech filled with unique and informative anecdotes about the Eiffel Tower and some of the main monuments surrounding her. You’ll then get to the elevators leading to the summit, for a last breathtaking moment, 1000-feet up in the air.

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
