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, and hear interesting tales and anecdotes about the tower’s unique history from your guide.

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 the 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

We took the tour at night to enjoy the lights of Paris. We were not disappointed! The night was cold and a bit breezy but we were dressed for it. Neither my husband nor I like heights, but this was a must on our Paris visit. Our guide was very knowledgeable and stayed to answer our questions. He never made us feel like we were infringing on his time. Now, I would like to go back during the day to see Paris in a "different light!" The whole experience is something we loved and will never forget!

This is very helpful if you need someone to show you the way AND give you some information about the Eiffel tower. Paris will always be Paris, so there will always be a big waiting line everywhere, no matter if you have a "skip the line" advantage or not. But time is passing fast because you keep taking photos of the tower from every angle, so don't worry :P

Very good tour guide; helpful in pointing out all the sights that should be seen from the 2nd level. It was especially good to have so few tourists at the Eiffel Tower (and all the other sites we have visited on this trip). Our tour included a pass to the Summit, which was no big deal, and I wouldn’t bother going up there again.
