Best Seller

Avoid the long elevator lines at the Eiffel Tower during a 2-hour adventure and climb the stairs to the 2nd level with an entertaining and knowledgeable guide.  Brag to your friends and join your fellow small group of "warriors" as you ascend 704 steps on foot with your expert guide who will share stories and fun facts about the Tower and surrounding landmarks! The scenery changes and expands around you on a journey that is as spectacular as the destination! The history, the legends, the views, the accomplishment!! Snacks or drinks are available for purchase.

For those who bought the Summit Access, you will take an elevator from the 2nd level to the Summit.  In the event that the Summit is closed, you will be offered a tour and access to the 2nd Level.  You will be refunded for the price difference between the two options.
  • Beat the Eiffel Tower elevator queue and walk up up its stairs with a guide
  • Panoramic views of the Arc de Triomphe, Notre Dame Cathedral, and more
  • Entrance fees included, with optional summit access upgrade 
  • Small-group tour for a personalized experience
What to Expect
Make your way to the foot of the Eiffel Tower at your chosen morning start time (giving yourself time to clear security), and meet your guide to begin your climb. Head up the more than 30 flights of staircases toward the top of the Eiffel Tower and listen as your guide sheds light on the life and times of Gustave Eiffel, the tower’s architect. The higher you climb, the better the views become. Stop at both the first-floor and second-floor viewing decks, and take a circular walk around the platforms. Along the way, gaze out over top attractions including the Louvre Museum, Notre Dame Cathedral, and Sacré-Coeur Basilica. Upgrade your tour to continue upward to the summit of the Eiffel Tower independently. See Gustave Eiffel’s office—restored to its original condition—and perhaps savor a glass of bubbling Champagne in the summit bar (own expense). Afterward, take the elevator to street level to end your visit.

I was a little apprehensive about the climb as there were so many steps, but the guide took us at a steady pace, feeding us lots of information and stories along the way. The walk was split into four sections, the first being the queue to get into the tower where Tamara told us
