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.

      Traveller 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.

      Amazing views!
      Christina_W, Sept 2023
      Zach was an amazing tour guide! What a great view! Something you have to experience when coming to Paris.
      Alan_F, Sept 2023
      Sebastián (from Argentina) was great guide both with his knowledge and humour. Very enjoyable experience. When we were there the signs were saying queue 2 hours to get in. We went straight in with the usual delays with 2 security checks and waiting for the lift. Highly recommend booking ahead.
      Great tour guide
      Stephanie_C, Sept 2023
      Our tour guide Zac was simply amazing! I would recommend him for any tour. Thanks you for the great experience. A++++++.
      Viator won't honor correct times.
      Adam_S, Sept 2023
      We bought tickets for the 1:15pm. We checked in at the desk and was given tickets for 2:00pm. I asked the host why do we have 2:00pm tickets when we paid for 1:15pm. She said "Well the elevator has probably reached it's limit". I said "But I'm here at 1:00pm, like Viator said to be". She replied with "Yep". I would never recommend using Viator again. The lady even told us we had to stay in the building because "they might come early" which is not true since the tickets she gave us clearly had 2:00pm on them.
      Fun tour and worth the money
      Paula_S, Sept 2023
      I wasn't sure whether or not to go on a tour of the Eiffel Tower, and only booked when I had a free afternoon. I was happy I did this. I love history, and our tour guide Zac was extremely knowledgeable about the tower and Paris history in general. Obviously the views at the top are amazing, but the ride up, and even the toast at the top were so much fun.
      Highly recommend this tour
      Vicky_K, Sept 2023
      We had a fantastic experience. Our guide Salome (not sure on spelling) was fantastic. She brought great energy and enthusiasm to the tour. We were traveling with a 10 year old and she engaged with him and made him feel special. He said she was the best! When sharing facts she did so in a fun and engaging manner. We thought she was awesome. With this ticket we quickly entered the gates and were able to maximize our time on the day. I highly recommend booking this tour.
      Samy, our guide- was...
      Jodie_B, Sept 2023
      Samy, our guide- was WONDERFUL!!! Very friendly and engaging. Telling us the history of the tower, and answering our questions.
      Zac was wonderful!!! The office personnel were very rude!,
      Cynthia_T, Sept 2023
      The history and guided tour of the Eiffel Tower with Zac was amazing; but, if I hadn’t pre-paid for trip I would not have used this company. They were extremely rude and dismissive with questions. Would not recommend them!
      What a view!
      Linda_S, Sept 2023
      Salume was a great guide - very funny and very informative. We had a very nice group and a gorgeous day. Thanks!

      Was able to get in a shorter line and go to the summit with less hassle than we would have faced if we went on our own

      Laura_U, Sept 2023
      Bruno the guide was a very nice guy who was well prepared and did a nice job in guiding the group but I think the tickets are overpriced
      Excellent tour!
      Jennifer_T, Sept 2023
      Our guide was wonderful! Very organized and knowledgeable. Her sweet personality and efficiency made this a great tour!
      Presleigh was our guide...
      Mallory_S, Sept 2023
      Presleigh was our guide and she was great! She was fun and helpful in getting us in and through all the checkpoints. While I think this did save us a lot of time, be advised this does not mean you skip the line everywhere. We still had to wait in line for the elevator to the 2nd floor, then to summit, then back down for both elevator. Do you do not get to skip the line for everything. Still lots of waiting.
      Great tour with Andre
      Cathie, Sept 2023

      The Eiffel tower experience was great.The Paris view at the summit is amazing and our guide made the journey enjoyable.
      The experience was GREAT!
      Donald_M, Sept 2023
      Our guide, Pedro, was great and it was a beautiful day. We got to the 2nd level without too much delay. We then lined up for the elevator to the summit which was worth the effort - the view! Lot of people at the Eiffel Tower but delays were not too bad. The experience was great!
      Wonderful experience! First time in Paris- was great!
