Full description
Watch the sunset over Paris from the top of the Eiffel Tower on a small group guided tour, with direct access to the 2nd level.

Your guide will entertain you with anecdotes about the Eiffel Tower’s history and construction, explaining the difficulties Gustave Eiffel encountered to get it built.

Then ascend to the 2nd floor of the tower with your pre-booked ticket, saving valuable time. Marvel at panoramic views of the city at dusk, and see landmark monuments such as the Sacre-Coeur, Notre-Dame and River Seine.

Your guide will tell you about the World Fair, held in Paris in 1889, and its most enduring monument. You are then free to choose if you'd like to go to the tower’s top level, where you can spend as much time as you like before descending on your own.

Well worth the extra money! Our guide was fantastic and so knowledgeable!!! My family really enjoyed the tour! Be prepared for some walking from the meeting point to the Eiffel Tower. Not a problem for us, but my parents waited at the Eiffel Tower while we walked to the meeting point of the tour. Our guide helped us coordinate meeting up with my parents once we arrived at the Eiffel Tower with the group.

Worth it

George, our guide was fantastic with facts and any questions we asked.it was clever idea to use earphones and we never waited in a queue..the dusk was beautiful and now have a good idea about what to visit next time.. Only downside..The pickup location was not easily reachable due to construction.we had to walk a long way to meet the group..

Awesome experience!

The tour was very informative and interesting. Eiffel Tower is so beautiful and best to view it at night with all its glory. We wish our guide told us the lights sparkles at night only for 5 minutes at 10 pm and we missed it. Well it was an excuse to visit it the next night. Breathing taking, and will always remember that moment.
