Meet your guide next to the Eiffel Tower for a brief introduction to the history of the tower. Then, enjoy direct access to the second floor, where your guide will tell you interesting tales and anecdotes about the tower’s unique history. Learn more about the “City of Light,” and enjoy privileged views of the Notre-Dame, Louvre, Arc de Triomphe, and Les Invalides.
Your guide will then leave you to enjoy the Eiffel Tower at your own pace. Ascend to the summit, without a guide, at your leisure for even more breathtaking views and enjoy a glass of bubbly in the Champagne Bar (if option booked). On the way down, make sure you stop on the 1st floor to walk on a new glass floor, 200 feet above ground.

• Summit ticket holders will have to wait in line on the 2nd floor to access the summit's elevators. In high season, this wait can be up to an additional 20 minutes.
• Please note that you cannot collect your Eiffel Tower ticket in advance.
• Tours operate rain or shine.
• The guide will only accompany you until the 2nd floor, so the guided duration is shorter than 2 hours. You will make your own way up to the summit (if option booked).
• On the rare occasion that the summit is closed to the general public for maintenance or safety reasons, this will not affect your guided tour, so no refunds or discounts will be given
