Save precious time on an accompanied visit to the Eiffel Tower with a direct access entrance ticket. Meet the host to get your entrance tickets and make your way up to the second floor by elevator having heard stories about the tower's history.

From this first vantage point, marvel at the sprawling city views in front of you. See if you can point out famous landmarks like the Seine River, the Trocadéro Gardens, and the Invalides.

Then, catch the next elevator and ascend to the summit of the Eiffel Tower. From there, admire the panoramic views of the city’s iconic monuments, such as Notre Dame Cathedral, Sacré Coeur Basilica, and the glass roof of the Grand Palais. See the office of Gustave Eiffel, or have a glass of champagne.

On your way back down, stop in at the 1st-floor observation deck. Here, wander around the fascinating exhibit and brave walking on the glass floor 57 meters (187 feet) above street level.

    The activity was very organized, we were given the tickets to climb to the top of the Tower and the access was explained to us, we hoped that from the top there would not be a small tour but they only explain the access beforehand, there is a lot of security control for the access. Without a doubt, an activity to repeat at night

    Despite having already had a guided tour in the morning, we followed the guide for this tour. This guide was every bit as knowledgeable and entertaining but did not seem as dialed in with the accesses. We were delayed getting onto the tower. Then, he graciously allowed some tour participants to go to the washroom. They did not return and, after a wait, we almost missed our opportunity to go to the top of the tower. There were only four of us at the end. The elevator to the top was closed but staff allowed the four of us to go up. Thank our lucky stars or this tour would have been a disaster. We would have regretted not abandoning the tour like most of the others.

    A very big group of people. Our guide Antoine walked ahead and everyone followed...no real touring to the tower. The group got separated. Most people went to the summit on their own. There was a 20 minute tour on level 2 for 6-8 or so people. Then you're on your own.
