  • Entrance fees included, with optional summit access upgrade 
  • Small-group tour for a personalized experience
What to Expect
Make your way to the foot of the Eiffel Tower at your chosen morning start time (giving yourself time to clear security), and meet your guide to begin your climb. Head up the more than 30 flights of staircases toward the top of the Eiffel Tower and listen as your guide sheds light on the life and times of Gustave Eiffel, the tower’s architect. The higher you climb, the better the views become. Stop at both the first-floor and second-floor viewing decks, and take a circular walk around the platforms. Along the way, gaze out over top attractions including the Louvre Museum, Notre Dame Cathedral, and Sacré-Coeur Basilica. Upgrade your tour to continue upward to the summit of the Eiffel Tower independently. See Gustave Eiffel’s office—restored to its original condition—and perhaps savor a glass of bubbling Champagne in the summit bar (own expense). Afterward, take the elevator to street level to end your visit.

In November I decided to go to Paris and so I purchased tickets on an impulse. I did not make hardly any plans and so when I got to Paris I saw the Eiffel Tower and decided I wanted to go up. I purchased tickets for this tour on my phone and was surprised with how unbelievably

The tour was amazing. Our host Tamar was fun and very knowledgeable. Thank you for the recommendations about the things to do and best places to eat in Paris. This was my first time in Paris and this tour was a memorable one. Thank you Tamar.

You will not be able to skip any queues despite the misleading advertising. We waited in the ticket queue with the guide for nearly 2 hours while people walked past into the empty skip the line entrance. This company simply takes your money in advance and then the guide queues

Greetings Thank you very much for your review. We are never happy to hear that someone was not satisfied with their experience with us and we appreciate honest feedback like yours that we can use to improve what we do. We do our best to advise there could be wait times. Most of our guests are quite happy with the streamlined process we are usually able to provide in addition to the service provided by our expert guides who entertain and inform our visitors during the experience. A big concern for me with this review is that we in fact did provide a partial refund to you and offered a free voucher for a future visit in an effort to give you added value. We are still willing to provide a voucher if you would reach out to us directly. In any case we do thank you for this review and your feedback so that we can continue to improve what we do for our guests. Best Regards, Linda
