COVID-19 Update

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

Enjoy bird’s eye views of Paris from the second-floor observation deck of the Eiffel Tower. 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.

Know before you go

  • Even with direct access, you may have to wait in lines for security and for the elevators. In high season, total wait to access the 2nd floor can be up to 25 minutes.
  • 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

Our guide was excellent. He waited for us as we were late from our flight. He was very knowledgeable. Thank you to him. But i think that you should not have to collect ticket from so far away from eiffel tower. Should be able to print off and meet at tower.

We were very pleased that we chose to pre-pay and skip the line. The other lines were horrendous. We were able to march past all those poor souls that had been waiting in multiple lines for hours. The time of year we visited was not even high tourist season. I cannot imagine what it would have been like at peak season. We were treated like VIPs. It was great!
