A lady like no other

The Eiffel Tower was born a rebel. She’s the most photographed woman in the world but if the critics had their way she would never have made her debut. Big, brash, and strong, she was like nothing anyone had ever seen before. Artists around the country worked tirelessly to stop her construction and then to bring her down but she would defy them all. She’s a survivor; outlasting all of her critics, reinventing herself generation after generation and working her way from outcast to perhaps the world’s greatest icon. It should have come as no surprise - the man behind her made a career of bucking the establishment; and Gustave Eiffel’s great Tower would eventually be his crowning achievement. 

Your guide will accompany you to the dedicated observation deck on the second level, from where they’ll point out the marvels that lay at your feet. From here, take in iconic sights such as the Arc de Triomphe, the Champs Elysees, and Notre Dame while enjoying your guide's insightful and entertaining commentary.

After touring Paris from above, you will have the opportunity to buy a ticket to the summit if you so wish. Join us as we explore the beauty and history of the Eiffel Tower. Love her or hate her, there’s no doubt that even at over 120 years old, she still knows how to put on a show.

Eiffel Tower Climbing Experience

See all three levels of this monumental tower (or just visit the first two - we have both tickets avaialble) on our unique climbing experience. Begin your tour near the base of the Eiffel Tower, where your expert guide will give you an introduction to the structure. From here, walk with your guide to the ticket entrance of the Eiffel Tower where you’ll have your first opportunity for a close-up look at the monument while we arrange your tickets.

Please note that during busy periods, there may be a wait to clear the line for the stairs and security. This comprehensive tour is typically scheduled to last for 2,5 hours, though wait times at security checks can sometimes increase the tour duration. Rest assured that these lines will move much quicker than the line for the elevator! If there is a wait, your guide will use this time to explain the fascinating history of the Tower’s creation.

As you climb the steps to the first level, you will marvel as City of Light emerges before your eyes and your guides shares the fascinating background of the architectural wonder that made Gustave Eiffel famous. On the first level, which is not regularly included on standard elevator tours, you will have time to take pictures or walk on the 188 ft (57 m) high glass floor. 

Your guide will then lead you up the steps again, to witness more incredible views on the way to the 2nd level observation deck. Here, you'll be able to take in more of the city's most iconic landmarks including the Arc de Triomphe, Champs-Elysses, and Notre Dame while enjoying your guide's insightful and entertaining commentary.

After seeing the city from the second floor, enjoy some free time and go above the ordinary to the summit (3rd level) by the comfort of an elevator for the highest panoramic views that the city has to offer. ( Summit ticket holders only)

Occasionally, due to situations beyond our control such as inclement weather or other circumstances, the summit may be temporarily closed upon your arrival to the Eiffel Tower. In these rare cases, the group will not be able to access the summit, even if it reopens while we are inside the tower. Should this occur, you will receive a refund for difference in cost of accessing the summit.

Once you are finished admiring the spectacular views, you can choose to take the stairs or the elevator back to the ground floor to continue your Parisian adventure!
