What To Expect

Choose an entry time when booking; meet your host near the Eiffel Tower a half hour prior to your scheduled time. 

With your group, stroll the short distance to one of the world's busiest monuments. Bypass the long lines and head straight for the elevators, enjoying speedy and stress-free access to the second floor. Step out with your host to take in some of the best panoramic views in Paris from the viewing platform, 375 feet (114 meters) above the ground. Get a basic orientation to the sights and landmarks visible from your vantage point from your host, then explore the area at your leisure. Snap photos of the Louvre, Les Invalides, Sacré Coeur, and the Champ de Mars, among other standout Parisian highlights. 

After you've had your fill of the second level, proceed to the summit, where you can toast your trip with Champagne from the bar and view Gustave Eiffel's private apartments.

    Traveler Tips

    Just remember to arrive about 20 minutes before scheduled time and all attractions have security checks, so travel light.
    Queues can get a bit long but worth the (not too long) wait
    It can get a little scary but I would only say, don't look down.

    Was good but disappointed with summit being closed. Not good value for money. Very expensive.
    Anna_D, Dec 2023

    Great experience
    Colin_H, Dec 2023
    Great experience very well organised would recommend. Guide was very knowledgeable and friendly would definitely use this company again 😀 😊
    The tower was great not the tour guild
    Isabel_R, Dec 2023
    I took two tours with your company and both tours I had the same experience. The tour guild for Effil Tower was very rushed. She walked like she was going to a fire. She talked so fast also we could not hear her. She give her tour info in the line while waiting to get on the left. She needs azmicrophone so everyone can hear her. She did not go to the top with us she said she was late for her next tour. I got more info from other people on the tour.
    Perfect day!
    Richard_R, Dec 2023
    Catarina was fantastic! Beautiful day and wonderful experience! Loved the day and will always remember
    Overall good but too rushed!
    Thisarana_W, Dec 2023
    Everything was good and smooth but the guide was literally running. Didn’t tell us why she was rushing and didn’t even care whether we were all coming. She didn’t even have a flag for us to see in case if we gets lost! Overall the experience was good and we managed to skip all queues. However it would have been better if the guide cared a bit more about us.
    Excellent experience
    Yvonne_W, Dec 2023
    Our guide yus was brilliant. Whilst waiting in line she told us some very interesting facts about the eiffle tower. She explained about the security and informed us things to look out for once in the tower. I would really recommend this company.. it was easy to find the shop we had to go to for the meet up. The one thing I would point I would like you to know is that we had an elderly lady with a stick in our group who found it hard to keep up the pace of the group
    DAVID_P, Dec 2023
    The guide was very friendly and informative. The tour left within 10 minutes of the recommended arrival time.
    Great experience
    Amanda_S, Dec 2023
    Worth every penny! Zac was an amazing guide. He was full of knowledge and made sure we made it up to the top safely and as quickly as possible! Very easy meeting point and I highly recommend!
    Amazing view and wonderful guide!
    Destiny_N, Dec 2023
    Friendly and knowledgeable guide! Also, the check-in staff was super friendly and helpful as well. And such a memorable experience! The guide was very informative about how the experience would be including going though security and how the elevator experience would be. I felt prepared as someone afraid of heights but wanting to experience this! The view was incredible and I could’ve stayed up longer if I had time!
    Great Views
    Kacia_J, Dec 2023
    Excellent tour and great way to see the Eiffel Tower and the city of Paris. We didn’t wait very long to get in and the photos turned out great.
    Very good
    Grace_R, Dec 2023
    Our tour leaders were very nice and knowledgable. Jean Baptiste was very good and made the tour fun and interesting.
    Great way to skip the...
    Eli_K, Dec 2023
    Great way to skip the line! There was a lot of information shared at the base (which I wished was a bit shorter as we were racing against the sunset). But then once on top, you could do whatever you wanted (ie didn't have to stay with the group). We ended up spending 3 hours walking around every level and seeing all the views!
    Time well spent
    John_A, Dec 2023
    Our tour guide Samy was very knowledgeable and entertaining. He shared several points of added interest to the tour. We liked being able to enjoy the Eiffel Tower at our own pace and time frame after the initial tour was over. We went at 2:45 which timed it nicely to see sunset and the lighting of the tower.
    Scam with access to top.
    BOGDAN_B, Dec 2023
    Everywere during the purchase and on the voucher it sais access to top. But when getting the ticket, only for second floor. That is a scam from my point of view. The guide was excellent.
    Samy is great
    Mrs_J, Dec 2023
    The whole experience was brilliant. Samy was incredible and iwould highly recommend to anyone visitin Paris. Saves all the time in the cold queuing plus you get information you otherwise wouldn't. 10/10
    Any excuse not to give you a ticket…
    Anthony_g, Dec 2023
    My wife turned up on time and unfortunately my business meeting over ran so she asked if we could just get the tickets and go in without the guided tour to which they said no that is not possible! Why not?? She wasn’t late, felt it was a con to avoid paying for 2 more tickets and they pocketed the money. I get it if we didn’t turn up but one of us did. Joke!!
    Response from Host, Dec 2023
    Dear customer, the activity that you booked is not a simple "entrance ticket". The amount includes “priority access”, the entrance ticket and the tour guide. For that reason, and according to the Eiffel tower strict policy, no access will be granted to anyone not accompanied by a guide. Again, we're sincerely sorry to hear about your disappointment and we hope you'll give us another chance to enjoy your next experience with us. We thank you for your feedback.
    Missed the tour due to redemption check in location. Awful!
    Michael_M, Dec 2023
    We never got to go. The link to your redemption point would work with Google Maps or Apple Maps. We missed our tour due to this inept redemption set up, and demand a refund! Total rip off. We bought multiple tours on our trip from you, but this will be the last time.
    Response from Host, Dec 2023
    Dear Customer, We're very sorry to hear you didn't get to enjoy your experience with us. However, please note that all the information about the redemption point is clearly stated various times in your voucher and under the “Before You Go" section : "Please note that you'll meet your guide at the departure point 38 avenue de la Bourdonnais, Paris 75007." (6 min. walking distance from the Eiffel tower) We're sorry to hear the link to Maps didn't work properly, we'll definitely look into that. We thank you for your feedback, and hope you will give us another chance for a future visit!
    Fantastic way to see the Tower
    Dawn_W, Nov 2023
    Made the process of getting to the Eiffel Tower and through security a breeze. Our guide Samy was fantastic! Very personable and knowledgeable.
    jus go for it
    Jeevan_G, Nov 2023
    One of the best guides in paris Prasleigh she's really great and ready to answer all.the questions and has some good trivia.
    Andreas_W, Nov 2023
    This is NOT to the top floor (summit). This is to the 2nd floor. It is written in the descreption that it is to the top, but this is wrong. We had to take the elevator down again and buy new tickets to the top. This is why I am not satisfied. I can’t find an option to claim refund…
    Response from Host, Dec 2023
    Dear customer, We thank you for your feedback. The product has two different options, summit or second floor. When you book, you have to choose one of them. Then we provide the tickets booked. We are sorry that it was not clear enough for you, and we hoped you still enjoyed the visit until the 2nd floor. We would be glad to welcome you in the future for another tour!
