Due to health and safety regulations, this itinerary may change. See Know before you go for the latest updates.
Take a break on the 1st floor and hear little-known facts about the tower and her architect. Experience the walk on a 57-meter high glass floor to take a few keepsake photos. Continue to the observation deck on the 2nd floor for bird's eye views of the Arc de Triomphe and other icons of Paris. Once you are finished admiring the spectacular views, you can choose to take the stairs or the elevator back to the ground floor.
Choose to upgrade your ticket to the Summit, only possible at the time of booking, to see Gustave Eiffel's original office and enjoy the highest platform for panoramic views of Paris. Please note that occasionally, due to situations beyond control such as inclement weather or crowds, the summit may be temporarily closed upon your arrival to the Eiffel Tower. In these rare cases, the group will not be able to access the summit, even if it reopens while presently inside the tower. Should this occur, you will receive a refund for the price of summit access within 5-10 days. The refund will be done automatically, so there is no need to contact us.

Prepare for the activity
Walk to the South entrance security check of the Eiffel Tower. Facing the Tower, with the Seine River behind your back, the South entrance is the one on the right. The tour coordinator, wearing blue and holding a “climbing tour” sign, will be waiting in the gardens which are located in front of the security entrance. They will be on the pathway called “Allée Léon Bourgeois”, standing by the cream-colored residential building. Please exchange your voucher at the meeting point. Do not go to the Eiffel Tower to collect your ticket. Please arrive on time as late arrivals are considered a no-show.Open in Google Maps ⟶
