Choose an entry time when booking; meet your host near the Eiffel Tower a half hour prior to your scheduled time. 

With your group, stroll the short distance to one of the world's busiest monuments. Bypass the long lines and head straight for the elevators, enjoying speedy and stress-free access to the second floor. Step out with your host to take in some of the best panoramic views in Paris from the viewing platform, 375 feet (114 meters) above the ground. Get a basic orientation to the sights and landmarks visible from your vantage point from your host, then explore the area at your leisure. Snap photos of the Louvre, Les Invalides, Sacré Coeur, and the Champ de Mars, among other standout Parisian highlights. 

After you've had your fill of the second level, proceed to the summit, where you can toast your trip with Champagne from the bar and view Gustave Eiffel's private apartments.

Effile Tower experience
, Jul 2021
There was no experience, host never contact us or respond to my messages. We went to 2 locations and couldn’t find anyone. Ended up buying new tickets.

Horrible experience. Terrible customer service. It was very hard to work with the tour company and they were extremely unhelpful with directions. I would never recommend this to anyone. You can buy your own tickets for less.
Read the instructions!

We were not able to participate in this. We originally booked a 2:45 pm tour on the first day that the Eiffel Town had re-opened to visitors following the COVID-19 restrictions, but were told that our time was not available and were rescheduled for 7:15 pm. We met at the Tower at 7:00 pm but misread the instructions to meet at the tour office, 0.3 miles away. This wasn't ideal since we didn't even want a tour - just a pass to skip the line. While very inconvenient, we did not read the instructions carefully enough and this was totally our fault. We wound our way back through the security and exits and walked to the tour office, but were told it was too late to participate. The group made an effort to reschedule us, but it would be another 50 Euro to change the time. After spending nearly $200 already and having to shift our schedule, we decided it wasn't worth it for us. Without the fee we probably would have done it but we just ate the cost. I've been up before and it's pretty cool but, of course, very touristy. Probably worth it but just be sure to read the fine print or you'll be donating your money to a Parisian tour company.

Our Tour guide Dris was very helpful, informative and relaxed. He made the tour enjoyable for our group. Make sure you read fine print as you do not meet at the Tower but 2 mins away

Cancelled- Refund Please

Hello. They cancelled the tour to the summit due to inclement weather. We were told Viator was aware of the situation and that all we needed to do get our refund was email you. I emailed yesterday but havent recieved a response yet either. Looking forward to getting the refund back.

Jean Baptiste was an excellent guide! My ten year old and my husband absolutely loved his detailed account of the history of the tower! They said it was well worth the money! This was an excellent way to experience the Eiffel Tower! Thank you History Tours and Viator!

This was the best activity we did in París. The view was so amazing & our tour guide was exceptional. His knowledge & commentary made the walk over & ride up to the second floor very intriguing. Yazid was the BEST!!
