Skip the Line: Eiffel Tower Tour and Summit Access by elevator
On the second level, you will enjoy anecdotes about the Eiffel Tower and its unique history. You will also learn more about the City of Light, and see many of its highlights from above, including Notre Dame, the Louvre Museum, the Arc de Triomphe, and Les Invalides.
At the end of your guided tour, you will be free to continue exploring the Eiffel Tower on your own and ascend to the summit through a second elevator where even more breathtaking views await. Sip a glass of bubbly from the Champagne bar (own expense) while you admire Paris glittering below.

Informative guides and visit. Got us up to 2nd level quickly within 30 min of meeting up. Gave info and told us how to tour it. Great views from summit and 1st floor. Highly recommend elevator up and then walking down stairs to bottom.
Great experience and the most amazing views of Paris. Would have love to have had dinner from a restaurant on top.
Knowing we'd be exhausted after little sleep on the transatlantic flight, we scheduled this skip the line tour for day 1. We were not disappointed. Our guide, Matt (Mathias) had a great sense of humor and gave us a terrific overview of the sites we'd be seeing and touring over the next few days. Helped us prioritize where we'd spend our time. A+.
We were running late to get to tour because of traffic. It was a hard address to find where the tour started. However they did wait for us which was much appreciated. Alex was our guide and he was great. WE did not wait in any line. I did think that the tour would be longer but once we got to the top we were on our own. I think that if you go late in the day that you are able to get to the top much easier than earlier. I would recommend doing on your own and just paying the normal fee instead of the tour. I think Viator is a rip off!
Max was a great guide. Prep'd us on the way and handled security and entry with ease. He was detailed, professional but very personable.
This was an amazing tour. We heard some of the history of the Eiffel Tower. Our tour guide was friendly and knowledgeable. Going to the top was amazing. Great tour!
Awesome guide. Short wait. Very good English. Meeting place is safe and secure. Learn a lot more than just going at it. Book it
On Sat, July 12th after traveling for 24 hours, we arrived in Paris for our reserved tour of the Eiffel Tower. We were delighted to have Florian as our tour guide. He was pleasant, informative, fun and helpful. We learned much about Paris and the Eiffel Tower but came away charmed by this fine young man and his ability to communicate well. Kiddos to him and Viator! Carol Godwin
We were very disappointed with this tour. Being that our family was only in Paris for a few days, we have scheduled many Skip the Line tours to avoid long lines and make the most of our time. What we experienced on this tour was disappointing. We were in a separate line from others but it turned out that it was much slower than the general line and three very large groups (50+ people in each) were escorted to the front of our line to go ahead of our smaller group. As a result we waited well over an hour on the line just to get through the initial security check followed but two additional lines for another security check and the elevator- another 30 minutes, neither of which skipped the line everyone else was on. As a result of spending most of our time on line, we did not have time to stay for the tour given by the tour guide and had to rush our visit at the Eiffel Tower including the summit access. We would not recommend this tour. We felt it was a waste of our money for what we actually got out of it.
I went with my family, there was five people. Our tour guide's name was florian. He was organized, knowledgeable, personable, and entertaining in giving some history of France and Eiffel Tower. He made sure the group was together even with the craziness of the crowds in the eiffel tower. I am glad I bought this skip the line via viator. Also, I am so happy that we got to go all the way to the top (summit) to see the view of France. I would book this again!
The tour guide had some interesting facts and pointing out the monuments from so high up was great. I really enjoyed the Eiffel and was in the 7:30 tour so got to be there at 9 when they lit it up
Our Skip the Line tour guide, Jared/Jarrett was very knowledgeable about the tower and surrounding Paris landscape. He spoke easily understandable English and knew the ins and outs of how to get around the tower.
Met by our delightful guide Carol on the Avenue de la Bourdonais, who escorted us to the Tower and took us through security and on to the skip the line entrance. Carol was great fun and bursting with knowledge and facts about the Eiffel Tower, she certainly enhanced the experience. We were accompanied up to the 2nd level, and after pointing out landmarks on all four sides, Carol left us to our own devices. We set off up to the top level, sipped champagne in the blustery wind and enjoyed the amazing views. A must for any trip to Paris!
My husband and I had an amazing time on this tour, our guide Louise was very knowledgeable, personable, and quite lovely. We would love to recommend this tour to those in a bit of a hurry, or not much time in Paris. It was truly an amazing experience.
We did not have to wait in the line. That’s the advantage. We just walked through. For the elevator also we did not have to wait long. Would recommend to buy this voucher to all from Viator.
This tour was really nice. We didn't have to stay in any lines, we were inside in no time. The tour was short but informative.
If your planing a trip to the Eiffel Tower do not waste your money on this Viator Tour. You start off with a guide for approximately 20 to 30 people, unless your standing right next to him you will have no idea what he is saying. The tour advertisers “Skip the lines” NOPE!! You stand in long lines like everyone there. After about 1 hour you may be close to entering the tower, then once at that point you have no idea where your so called guide went so your on your own. Now hundreds of people push and shove trying to get into a lift to the next level. Once there again your on your own. If you want to continue to the top of the tower it’s another 1 to 2 hour wait with thousands of people trying to do the same thing. As for the guide I guess he leaves and goes to pick up more tourist who have wasted their money on this tour. Buy a book and learn about the Eiffel Tower before you go, you will learn a lot more from the book than this company gives you. Very poor company.
So... worth.. the... money! We booked the first tour of the day, highly recommend that if you want to avoid the crowds. We bypassed a line that had already formed before the opening of the tower that the signs and guide said would be a 2-3 hour wait. We were on the first elevator to the top and had the whole viewing platform to ourselves with a small group from the elevator for about 20 minutes before the main line crowds started coming in.
This worked fine it really was just a way of avoiding the very long general public line and getting to use the shorter line for tour groups. There's still a line, but the wait was more like 10 minutes instead of what looked to be 40-60 minutes for the regular line. Our guide didn't really do a tour she just walked us in, got us into the right line, and waited with us until we got to the first tier from which you can get to the higher levels on your own. She answered questions people had and was super nice.
