Guided Climb of the Eiffel Tower with Optional Summit Access
During the first leg of your climb you will learn about Gustave Eiffel: The Young Engineer, The Entrepreneur, The Great Builder, and Life After The Tower.
Upon arrival at the second level, experience a unique sense of accomplishment, and take in the magnificent views of all the sights surrounding you. Get a birds’ eye tour of Paris with your feet far from the ground as your guide tells you about monuments and districts such as Montparnasse, Les Invalides, the Sacre-Coeur, Notre Dame, the Louvre Museum, the Arc de Triomphe and the Champs-Élysées.
If you have purchased the Summit Access option, you will take a lift from the 2nd level up to the summit. Once there, see Gustave Eiffel’s office, restored to its original condition along with panoramic maps. Go to the Champagne Bar and treat yourself to some bubbles in the sky. When you are ready, simply take the elevator back down to street level and continue with your day!

The lines were insane, you'd expect the tour organizers would have a way to cut this shorter . Content of tour was very shallow...
Absolutely amazing experience was a lot of steps but I still Managed it! Definitely worth doing if you’re going to Paris!
I did this tour with my 2 teenage sons. They both said that it was a highlight of our trip. We had Eric as a guide who was passionate about sharing his knowledge of the tower, and of the city. The climb wasn't too difficult and at a good pace. I think we may have arrived to the top more quickly than others given the line ups for the elevators. I highly recommend this tour. Thank you Eric!
I would highly recommend this tour for anyone interested in getting the best view of Paris from the Eiffel Tower. Our tour guide, Marija, was really great! She made sure that everyone was together and the pace was reasonable for the group. Although there were a lot of stairs to climb, it never felt difficult. There was ample time to climb the stairs, take a break, see the sights, etc. We did our climb when the Eiffel Tower opened. The lines were already pretty long, so I would highly recommend this for anyone looking to avoid long lines and get the most of the Eiffel Tower.
Climbing the stairs was great fun and not as difficult as one would think. The guides were clearly visible with their yellow flags and all pleasant. Would highly recommend this for anyone who is at least moderately fit and adventurous.
This tour was amazing! Our tour guide was super funny and nice. In this tour we got to climb the Eiffel Tower and get to hear all about this history that goes with it. Our tour guide made this tour amazing because he taught us many things in a fun and interesting way.
Super informative, punctual, nice tour guides! It was so easy to spot the tour company and I would do this again!
Climbing the tower steps is quite easy and rewarding as you see the view gradually change as you climb. The climb wasn't rushed, Shoahib made sure we all made it safely and provide us with a great background of the tower and Paris history. Do this tour for sure!
This tour was amazing. A-M-A-Z-I-N-G. Our tour guide was Alexandria. She was very fun and welcoming to our family. She provided lots of information about the tower and kept us motivated to keep climbing. While we were all tired by the end of the first level, we had a nice break to get ready for the next climb. I highly recommend this tour. It is perfect for seeing all of the inside of the tower and hearing all about the construction and many anecdotes of happenings to the tower and Paris.
This was a great tour, full of information, and our tour guide was great. The climb wasnt as hard as I was anticipating based off the description, so don't let that deter you! I wish we would have known how long the line was to get to the top, we had to skip the line for the elevator as we had to be somewhere else for our schedule.
Our guide was very friendly and informative. The climb was a great workout and the views of the city were amazing!
A great tour and guide. David was an excellent guide, he knew the history and his English was perfect. The tower is thrilling to visit. Glad we did it.
My sons and I enjoyed walking up the steps of the Eiffel Tower and hearing stories of it from construction to modern day. It was exciting to see it light up during our sunset tour. Even though we had a guide we still had to wait in lines but they were manageable. Being in the Tower is truly a Wow experience!
Our guide Monique was interesting and provided a lot of information about the tower and Paris. You skip the line which is also long and go directly up to the 1st and 2nd levels. You not only benefit from a guided tour but also no waiting in line. We purchased the summit passes at the time of booking and would recommend if you wish to go to the very top.
