Full description
This skip-the-line tour gets you priority admission to the Eiffel Tower, the iconic symbol of Paris. Save time on your trip to the City of Light - bypass the notoriously long line at one of the most-visited monuments in the world! Built for the 1889 World's Fair, Gustave Eiffel’s magnificent construction stands 324 meters tall. On this 2-hour tour, your guide will bring you straight to the front of the line to the Eiffel Tower. Along the way, your guide will tell you about major events in the tower’s history, including early marketing stunts, its role in both World Wars, and more. At the end of the guided tour, you’ll have the option to continue to the summit of the tower on your own. You can spend as much time up there as you'd like.

    It was astonishing...

    I did this tour with a guide named Karina. She's really awfully nice and polite. It was really nice to get the tour, the city and all the monuments explained by her. I recommend this tour to everybody. It's such a pretty thing to get personally involved in the tour. Don't hesitate to book.

    Well organised, very informative, worth every penny!

    Thank you to Millicent for keeping us all together through security despite the bomb scare, very well informed about European history with answers for every question. We went up the Tower on the most perfect day, clear views, no haze. I have been up before but my children were blown away (not literally). I would not hesitate to book another tour with this company.

    Fantastic tour, well worth the money

    I booked this tour for myself and my girlfriend as we had heard that the queues for the tower could be very long and we wanted to fit as much into our stay as possible. I was a little sceptical that we had paid the money and only received a reference number but had nothing to be worried about at all. The staff were really helpful and friendly and the tour left perfectly on time. We walked straight past a queue of about 200 people (we went on the 10.30am tour) and went straight to the second floor. The tour guide (Ellen I think her name was) was brilliant. She was very knowledgeable and comical and told us some really interesting facts. Overall, a fantastic tour and I'm so pleased that we booked it.
