What To Expect

Greet your guide at a central city location in Paris and stroll to the Eiffel Tower with your skip-the-line ticket. Sail past lines often in excess of two hours and begin exploring the iconic monument immediately. Enjoy illuminating commentary from your guide and hear tales of the tower’s ingenious designer, Gustave Eiffel, and its rich historical heritage. Watch insightful documentaries in the cinematic theater on the 1st Level and see an original spiral staircase used by the architect himself.

Ascend to the 2nd Level to absorb the sprawling cityscape of Paris from above. Enjoy ample time to enjoy the panoramic vistas and then be entertained by stories of crazy exploits involving the tower. 

After your 2-hour guided tour comes to an end, feel free to continue exploring the Eiffel Tower independently. Ascend to the 3rd Level for a glass of champagne at the vertiginous summit and return to the 1st Level for an alternative perspective of the city. 

Please note: Your skip-the-line access does not apply to lines for the elevator to the 3rd Level. This tour provides skip-the-line priority, but is subject to all procedures and security requirements of the Eiffel Tower.

    It was very busy so being able to get ahead in the queue was really helpful. OJ our guide was very friendly and helpful.
    Poor tour company!
    Lasanthan_P, Dec 2022
    The tour guide was intelligent and advised us of the history of the Eiffel Tower however, the issue with the tour is that there were no earphones hence it was difficult to hear the tour guide at all times. I travelled to various other cities such as Venice and Rome and their tour operators had a system with ear phones. The tour company should invest in this equipment!
    Don’t miss this tour!

    Our guide Maddie was wonderful! Informative and also made suggestions on other areas to visit in Paris.

    Seeing all the important parts of Paris from one vantage point and getting ideas of what to do next.
    A wonderful experience

    Severene(sp) was as entertaining as she was informative. She made the experience one to cherish for many years to come. Merci beaucoup.
    Good guide, great visit with kids!
    Tove_L, Nov 2022
    Our guide Kim was great. The visit took all afternoon, there were some lines here and there but not too bad. Nice when you don’t have to figure out where to go and just can follow the guide. We learned a lot from our guide about the tower and other Paris buildings. My kids (8 and 11) also enjoyed it and liked Kim a lot too.
    Great tour!!

    Our guide Kate was fabulous, very knowledgeable and fun to be with. We had a major history lesson! Recommend this company highly
    Poor Tower Experience.
    Sydney_B, Oct 2022
    Travel Guide did a good job. Terrible location for your office. You should state that office was on side around corner. Very disappointed tat we couldn’t go higher in the Tower.
    So much fun
    Cindy_T, Oct 2022
    We enjoyed our time at the Eiffel Tower. Our guide was funny, engaging and intelligent. We learned a lot.
    Ripped off
    John_B, Aug 2022
    We didn't skip any lines!! Given our tickets by the tour operators with a face value of approximately a third of what we had been charged. Stood in line with everyone else in boiling temperatures and no shade. As a 70 year old with a heart condition I am prepared to pay extra for good experiences. This wasn't one of them!!
    Top of the Tower
    Sandra_R, Aug 2022
    The tour guide was excellent. Very knowledgeable of the history associated with the Eiffel Tower. We had a nice walk to the tower and took pictures before heading up.
    Misleading. The wait was 45 mins in line along with standard entry ticket. List guide in crowd inside. Terrible
    Deborah_E, Aug 2022
    Please refund the tour fee l Ss the standard entry fee. Stating ‘skil the line’ implies there would be virtually no waiting. We had to waste 30mins going to the tour office and waiting 45 mins in line to Eiffel Tower.
    Wonderful Experience!
    Devan_H, Jul 2022
    My niece and I were traveling to Paris for a long-awaited trip. I scheduled this tour so she could experience the best of the Eiffel Tower. We were not disappointed! Zoja was our tour guide and she was amazing. She was down to earth, helpful, and very informed about the history of Paris and the Eiffel Tower. We couldn't have asked for a better experience.
    Our guide Amir was great!!!! Learned so much and had fun.😊
    Mary_T, Jul 2022
    Amir!!! He was a wonderful guide . We learned so much about the tower. Was a lovely tour. Would recommend it to all.
    Small Group is the best! Great tour with lots of knowledge.
    Frederick_W, Jul 2022
    What can you say, it is the Eiffel Tower. Awesome. Anna/Ana (sorry) was great. She took great care of us and our daughter (13yo) really enjoyed talking with her. Small Group is the only way to go to avoid the chaos.
    Perfect Tour Guide

    Anna was the best tour guide. She provided great details on the history of the Eiffel Tower, assisted with taking taking photos, very personal and provided tips on other places to visit within the city.
