Full description

Experience the Eiffel Tower from a new perspective by climbing the stairs to the Tower's second floor together with a guide.

Check-in and meet your guide a five-minute walk from the Tower. Once the group is assembled, you’ll leave straight to the Eiffel Tower’s South Pillar, the only entrance for those brave enough to climb the 674 steps leading to the second floor.

There your guide will give you some historical details about the Eiffel Tower. Climbing your way upwards, you’ll go through the first floor. Your guide will show you the recently added but already famous glass floor and lead you to the multimedia room where you’ll learn even more about the Iron Lady.

If there’s any room left, you’ll be given the opportunity to book a table at the “58 Tour Eiffel” restaurant. Take a short break to catch your breath before ascending towards the second floor.

Once you’ve reached the second floor, take a quick look around and let your guide entertain you with a historical speech filled with unique and informative anecdotes about the Eiffel Tower and some of the main monuments surrounding her.

It was very busy at the place where you have to redeem your ticket. The staff will try to sell you upgrades and other excursions that will make you wait a long time. So come well on time. The stairs were not available so we got a free upgrade with the elevator. That was okay. Everything was well organized and we had a great time.

Yazid so friendly! He was very knowledgeable about Paris and the Tower. It was a fun experience. He helped took photos of us and I must say he knows how to take good ones. Love the experience and the story he told us about the tower and the surrounding area of the tower.

The tour guide shop was really easy to find, staff are polite and friendly. JB the tour guide was fantastic, he spoke brilliant English and was able to provide a very in-depth and detailed description about the Eiffel tower and the surrounding area. Throughly enjoyed the tour and would recommend taking the tour to anyone.
