Along with your tour companions, 20 people or fewer, you’ll hear about the history of this monument as you make your way to the ticketing area. You’ll admire the structure while your guide handles the tickets. After a security check, you’ll take the elevator to the 2nd floor for an unrivaled perspective of this stunning city. You’ll then hop on the elevator and proceed to the Summit, and descend back to the 1st floor to enjoy a breathtaking view of Paris from the glass floor.

Your 2.5 hour tour includes:

  • A guided tour of the Eiffel Tower

  • Access to 1st and 2nd levels by Elevator

  • Elevator to the Summit

  • Hassle-free ticketing experience

  • Group of 20 or fewer

  • Expert English-speaking guide

1st Floor

Experience a magical floating sensation as you make your way up the first level by elevator, for a view of Paris from a 182-foot suspended glass floor. You’ll marvel at this bird's eye view as the River Seine winds below your feet. While enjoying the view, your guide will share the intriguing history of the tower's controversial construction. This floor has limited elevator access and is not included with most tours, making this tour-inclusion extra special!

There are snack bars and souvenir shops on the first level, as well as the Madame Brasserie restaurant. Reservations are highly recommended if you want to plan on a meal here before or after your tour.

2nd Floor

You’ll then reach the 2nd-floor observation deck for unparalleled views of this breathtaking city. From 377 feet, you’ll see the city's most iconic landmarks from a panoramic vista that you’ll never forget. You’ll spot the Arc de Triomphe, admire the beautiful, tree-lined Champs-Élysées, and see the famous Notre Dame cathedral. You’ll also be able to see the Palace of Versailles, the Louvre, and Montmartre from this viewpoint.

Note that there are two snack bars on this level, as well as the Michelin-starred Le Jules Verne restaurant. If you want to dine before or after your tour, be sure to make reservations well in advance.

Summit Level

Take your Eiffel Tower experience to even greater heights by hopping on the elevator to the Summit. This experience takes you by a glass-walled elevator to the very top visitor level, where you can witness an even greater view of the city, from 905 feet above ground level! You’ll also be able to see the office of Gustave Eiffel and sip Champagne from the bar to savor the view.
