Covid-19 Update

Due to health and safety regulations, this itinerary may change. See Know before you go for the latest updates.

At the beginning of your day, you will head to your guide's boutique (located three minutes by foot from the Eiffel Tower) where you will meet your guide and fellow visitors. From here you can enjoy a warm cup of coffee and a French croissant, which will allow you to wake up peacefully in the "City of Light". As an added bonus, your team will provide you with a useful and artistic map of Paris, which has been handcrafted by a local, talented artist. Once your group has assembled with bodies and spirits ready to take on the day, your expert and passionate guide will lead you towards the Eiffel Tower. On your way there, your guide will entertain you with an introduction to Lady Eiffel’s history, including her place in French society at the turn of the 19th century. After a quick security check, your guide will go and pick up your pre-booked tickets. This means you’ll have to wait for a little while in line, but rest assured; as you will be among the very first visitors, the line will be very short. After your guide has distributed everyone’s tickets, you’ll get to go straight into the Eiffel Tower with direct access. You will enjoy an elevator ride to the second floor, followed by a riveting commentary of two of the most impressive views offered by the tower’s second level. Surprising facts and anecdotes about Paris’s epic history will be sure to turn this experience into one worthy of your trip to the French capital. Your guide will then leave you be, and, depending on which ticket you’ve booked (summit access is optional, make sure to select it if you want the full experience), will give you indications on how to get to the summit by yourselves. You’ll then be left to enjoy the Eiffel Tower at your own pace, with the rest of the day still ahead of you.

The guide (Hugo) was fantastic and very knowledgeable about Paris, he is 5 star! The breakfast was a little disappointing as it was just a little cardboard box with a crossaint and an instant coffee with no tables to sit at, just some comfy bench type seats where you had to sort of balance it on your knee.

This was such a great way to start our time in Paris for our honeymoon! The time of day was perfect to beat the larger crowds and the heat. Our group was a manageable size of about 12-15. Our guide, Claudia, was the best! She had such great history and insight to share about the city, and was even willing to practically lay down on the ground to get great photos of us in front of the tower. Breakfast was simple, yet delicious, the perfect start to our tour. I'd recommend this to anyone visiting the city!

Good fun!

I recently arrived in France, Paris, for work, and looked for a nice activity to do on the Eiffel tower. This really was a nice experience: friendly staff and sure it was a bit crowded but it didn't matter to me. Important: the croissants were fresh and the coffee was good expresso (a bit strong). Also the guide (sorry I forgot the name) was very knowledgeable and fun. Thank you I will invite my family next time!
