COVID-19 Update

Due to health and safety regulations, this itinerary may change. See Know before you go for the latest updates.

Meet your guide to hear an introduction about the iconic tower and its creator. Then, enter the tower to climb up 704 steps over 30 flights. Catch your breath at the provided rest stops and see a side of the Eiffel Tower you would miss if you took the elevator. Upon arrival at the first level, take a well-earned break. Stand on the new glass floor, and explore the interactive exhibit telling the story of the monument's construction. Once you've reached the 2nd level observation deck, experience a unique sense of accomplishment. Take in the views of all the sights surrounding you and hear about the monuments and districts you can see from your guide, such as Montparnasse, Les Invalides, the Sacre-Coeur, the Arc de Triomphe and the Champs-Élysées.

I was able to book this tour very easily. During the tour I proposed marriage to my girlfriend ❤. With the wonderful and professional support from Kamela our guide, this was a super unforgettable moment. The information about the Eiffel Tower was conveyed to us completely motivated and interesting. I can recommend this tour to everyone.

Long wait

Despite the internet ticket, one hour waiting time at the security check, then at the ticket office, then 0.5 hour on level 2 lift to the top tower. When booking, the floors are not displayed, you don't know that you have to book up to the top tower. Then we had to pay € 25. The lady had no change. The PayCard was not accepted. The whole thing lasted 4 hours, of which waiting time was about 3 hours. .
