An iconic landmark the world over, the Eiffel Tower is a must-see attraction for anyone coming to Paris. On this tour, save hours of waiting time with a skip-the-line admission ticket, and make the most of your visit with introductory commentary. From the second-floor viewing deck, admire spectacular views over Paris and spot sights such as Notre Dame Cathedral, Arc de Triomphe, and the Seine River.
  • Skip-the-line entrance: no waiting in line or queuing for tickets
  • Enjoy magnificent views from the second floor of the Eiffel Tower
  • Accompanied by a tour host for a hassle-free experience

What to Expect
Meet your tour host at a location close to the Eiffel Tower and take a moment to admire the impressive tower. Using your skip-the-line tickets, follow your host to the front of the queue and enjoy priority access to the second-floor elevators. As you arrive at the second-floor observation deck—375 feet (114 meters) from the ground—your host points out the most impressive sights and offers background information about the world-famous tower. Spend the rest of your hour-long visit exploring on your own and marveling at the 360-degree views of Paris. As you gaze out over the city below, look out for landmarks such as the Cathedral of Notre Dame and Ile de la Cité, Basilique du Sacré-Coeur, Louvre, Champs-Elysées, and Champ de Mars. Please note: Summit access is not included on this tour. You are not able to purchase a ticket on the second level to head up on your own.

Very enjoyable tour. Our guide, Martin, was fantastic; hilarious and incredibly knowledgeable. He spoke in sufficient detail not only about the Eiffel Tower's history, but also about the other noteworthy monuments in Paris. Highly recommended.

It was good. However I wasn’t really interested in the tour. If I would’ve known better I would’ve just purchased tickets directly with the Eiffel Tower. But seeing the inside of the tower was neat and going up to the second floor was way higher than I thought. Definitely worth

Very well organised. Guide was absolutely hilarious and very knowledgeable. When I booked the trip I wondered why we would need a guide but it made the tour a great experience and offered us more information that we took away to visit other places in Paris.

Well organised. Our guide mauro was fantastic. It was the first thing we did on our trip and gave an excellent overview of the city and it's history before we made our own way. Even my 12 year old disengaged son said it was good!!
