The Eiffel Tower is one of Paris’ top attractions, and the popularity of the famous iron monument is apparent in the often punishingly long waits for a ticket. During this guided skip-the-line evening tour, you breeze past the crowds  and head straight up the elevator for an unforgettable nighttime panorama over the twinkling city.

What to Expect

Meet your guide near Trocadero station in central Paris where you can admire the iconic spire against the darkening sky.

Listen to fact-filled anecdotes about the tower’s construction as you head to the Eiffel Tower base. Bypass the long entrance lines and head directly to the elevator, where you zip straight up to the second floor, saving precious time for more viewing.

Get a bird’s-eye view of Paris at night, aglow with twinkling lights. Admire world-renowned landmarks from above such as Arc de Triomphe and the Cathedral of Notre Dame. You also see the famous tower itself light up as the city’s beloved beacon bursts into sparkling beams.

The tour ends at the Eiffel Tower.

A great way to experience the tower.

We arrived at the meet point early and were relieved to see a City Wonders rep there ready and waiting to greet us. Our guide was great, easy to chat to and full of knowledge. Would definitely recommend this tour.
