With your group, stroll the short distance to one of the world's busiest monuments. Bypass the long lines and head straight for the elevators, enjoying speedy and stress-free access to the second floor. Step out with your host to take in some of the best panoramic views in Paris from the viewing platform, 375 feet (114 meters) above the ground. Get a basic orientation to the sights and landmarks visible from your vantage point from your host, then explore the area at your leisure. Snap photos of the Louvre, Les Invalides, Sacré Coeur, and the Champ de Mars, among other standout Parisian highlights. 

After you've had your fill of the second level, proceed to the summit, where you can toast your trip with Champagne from the bar and view Gustave Eiffel's private apartments.

      Traveler Tips

      Just remember to arrive about 20 minutes before scheduled time and all attractions have security checks, so travel light.
      Queues can get a bit long but worth the (not too long) wait
      It can get a little scary but I would only say, don't look down.

      Nice and Quick Tour
      JoseNoris_M, May 2023
      The tour guide was friendly and informative. He moved fast however and you can easily be left behind. It’s easy to not hear what he says since we were a fairly large group. The tickets were a good way to skip the line to the top of the tower. However, the tour guide is only until the 2nd floor of the eiffel and you are left to go to the top by yourself. The plus side is though, that you can spend as much time in the eiffel after the short tour.
      Thoroughly Enjoyable Eiffel Tower Visit
      Tony_H, May 2023
      I enjoyed several aspects of this experience. Looking out on the champagne/viewing deck. Especially as this was approaching sunset. Also the decent to level two in the elevator. Had I not had other commitments, I would have loved to watch sunset and stay into the night for the coloured lights.

      MICHELLE_C, May 2023
      Great tour guide, very knowledgeable. Spoke english and Spanish. Eager to answer our questions. Organized and efficient check in
      Great guide but check in facilities should be better
      Marc_A, May 2023
      Our guide for the tour was very sweet and knowledgeable- however the tour operator where you check in did not allow use of any bathroom facilities- most everyone we saw coming in was looking for facilities and none were available.
      Very professional people...
      EDUARDO_B, May 2023
      Very professional people and it’s the best way to visit the tower. We recommend them if you want to make your visit easier
      One to tick off the bucket list!
      Carol_I, May 2023
      The guide was good fun and explained everything well and made sure he had the group together. The only reason I dropped one star was that it was expensive. However, being scared of heights, it was the best way for me to do it. A glass of champagne at the top was very welcome!

      Mary_B, May 2023
      It was canceled due to technical issues and I have not received a refund yet. The tour company said viator was very good in responding, but I emailed them and haven’t heard anything back from them yet.
      Never made it to summit:(
      Renu_G, May 2023
      I was so upset! It was my dream to go to the top and see the view from the summit of the Eiffel Tower but I was not able to. I was at a lunch at Eiffel Tower At the restaurant and then was expected to come down from tower and meet at meeting point to get tickets even though I had voucher. It was such an inconvenience and no one was able to help me! I was extremely upset and I’d like my money back. This was too confusing and people were very unfriendly.
      Not good - delayed , missed trip and lost the money
      Huma_B, May 2023
      Was late due to metro train delays and tried calling customer service who first could not understand anything in english and then said they would call back which they never did. We missed the tour when we reached and lost £300 paid for the summit tickets. Was asked to pay again for 4 tickets to 2nd floor. They must've sold our tickets to someone else !
      Add trip you should not ever pass up
      Pamela, May 2023
      We were delighted with our tour and with our guide. We were a small group, and we walked over to the Eiffel tower and got a wonderful view with explanations of the history of the tower, and how it affected the local people. We had passes to go to the top level, and, the views were amazing. We took a tour around eight in the evening and we were very fortunate the skies were clear. It was definitely a trip that we will always remember.
      Gulsabah_A, May 2023
      Very friendly and helpful company. We had a slight glitch and they fixed it promptly. Bruno was a great guide- funny, knowledgeable and attentive. Good luck guys!
      Look for a different company to take you to the Eiffel tower
      Lisa_B, May 2023
      The Eiffel tower itself is wonderful. However, there was no real skipping of the line and the tour guide assigned to us was terrible, and had no information to impart. When we asked questions, he did not know the answers. He was very friendly, just not suited for the job of tour guide. After the trip, they talked us into a boat trip along the seine that was horrible. I couldn’t see anything and the tour guy just mumbled into the microphone, so no information was imparted. I should have taken my €30 and thrown them into the water instead

      Marilyn_D, May 2023
      There was not clear directions on where to meet and as a result I could not find the tour and waited in line.

      Raphael was our guide. He was excellent! He was engaging, informative, and entertaining ! Highly recommended!
      Excellent experience!
      Darin_S, May 2023
      Was great not to have to stand in the long line up to wait to get in. Our guide was amazing and told us lots of great things we didn't know. This was our second time at the Eiffel Tower. The first time we waited for almost 2 hours to get in. Definitely recommend this way to do it!!
      Just Skip the Line Ticket Needed
      Cecilia_S, May 2023
      Just paying to skip the line. So you wait 45 minutes instead of an hour or two. Very little history and background given. Better to just pay for a ticket to skip the line with no tour guide.
      Great tome at the Eiffel!
      Karen_L, May 2023
      We had a great tour guide. Very well organized. Highly recommend going this route of you plan to tour.

      Jerrold_K, May 2023
      A lot of money for a deceptive tour. The was no initial line to skip. But waiting for security was ridiculously long and the wait to get out was just as bad. Meeting point strangely far away from the tower. Not a worthwhile, or economical experience.
      Excellent Tour!!!
      Jenett_L, May 2023
      A great experience with a wonderful guide. Gave plenty of history about the Eiffel Tower, in addition to the correlation it has with other Parisian landmarks.

      David_D, May 2023
      The experience was cancelled with no notice from the operator due to technical problems at the Eiffel Tower. We were told a refund would be processed, which has not yet happened.
