Eiffel Tower

5 Avenue Anatole, Paris

The Basics

The Eiffel Tower's first floor features exhibits, kid-friendly experiences, and the 58 Tour Eiffel restaurant; the second deck includes the Jules Verne Restaurant; and the third-floor summit, accessible via a glass lift, features Gustave Eiffel's private apartments and a Champagne bar. Of course, all levels offer striking 360-degree views of the City of Light.

Although a testament to the structure's global popularity, the crowds can be quite large, meaning that priority-access tours are highly recommended—in peak season, long lines mean waits can often exceed three hours. Save precious sightseeing time by booking a skip-the-line Eiffel Tower ticket with or without a tour guide; this experience can combined with a Paris city tour that covers the top sights, such as the Arc de Triomphe, the Notre Dame Cathedral, Moulin Rouge, Montparnasse, and the Louvre museum. If you'd rather view the iconic structure in all its glory than head to the top, book a Seine River cruise, or a walking, biking, or Segway tour.

Very informative tour
Very enjoyable and informative tour. The guide, Carolina, was excellent. In spite of the rain, we managed to see so many places in Paris! Learned so much new history of France as well! Get ready for intense walking, but it is definitely worthwhile. Highly recommended.

Eiffel Tower Morning Tour by Elevator Optional Summit & Seine River Cruise
The Eiffel Tower tour was amazing, mostly because of Lila, our tour guide, who went out of her way to look after everyone in the group and gave an engaging and interesting talk. The Seine River Cruise needs to fix its portable speakers for commemtary

Eiffel Tower Skip the Line with Multiple options
There was confusion about the tickets. Rewording the email saying the tickets were attach led and drop wording about meeting at a location would have helped. The elevator on the Eiffel Tower broke and it was about an before a work around. There was no communication for the staff to guesses about delay.

Went to the Eiffel Tower for our daughters 16th birthday. Glad we had the experience but I wouldn’t do it again because of the large crowds and long elevator lines.

Paris in a Day: Montmartre, Eiffel Tower, Seine River Cruise & Louvre
Good commentary by knowledgeable guide. Covered a lot. Could spead up the pace more so that we could have had time to actually use our Eiffel tower admission. Skipped the boat cruise...way too crowded and boring.

Eiffel Tower Skip the Line Ticket Summit Priority Access with Host
The tour worked well and was very well run. We had a great time. The meeting spot not at the Eiffel Tower needed to be clarified better though. Still, very well done, thanks.
