See a different side of Paris’s ‘Iron Lady’ with a guided climbing tour of the Eiffel Tower. Take the slow and scenic route and climb the stairs! Learn all about the construction, controversies, and mystique surrounding the iconic tower from a guide as you ascend to the first and second levels, admiring Gustave Eiffel’s intricate design from angles and viewpoints that most visitors miss. It’s an adventurous way to go behind the scenes—and under the beams—of one of the world’s most popular attractions.
What to Expect

Meet your guide at the steps by the end of the Pont d’Iena and start this fascinating adventure through the history of the original Dame de Fer (Iron Lady).

Follow your expert, English-speaking guide on a Parisian adventure and discover the Dame de Fer from a spectacular perspective. You’ll have your first opportunity for a close-up look at the monument while we arrange your tickets. Your guide will reveal the stories behind her creation, near demise, and glorious rise to the top. The special view from the staircase will give you the opportunity to enjoy every curve from every angle and to understand the beautiful science that keeps her standing. As you climb, your guide will tell you more about the structure and the architectural wonder that made Gustave Eiffel famous - please note that during busy periods, there may be a wait to clear the line for the stairs and security. Rest assured that this line will move much quicker than the line for the elevator!.

Take a break on the first level where you will get to learn very little-known facts about the Eiffel Tower and its architect thanks to the visitor-friendly cultural path. You will also get to walk on a 57m high glass floor, and take a few shots if you’re adventurous enough.

Your guide will then accompany you to the dedicated observation deck on the second level, from where they will point out the marvels that lay at your feet. From here, take in iconic sights such as the Arc de Triomphe, the Champs Elysees, and Notre Dame while enjoying your guide's insightful and entertaining commentary. 

This tour lasts for 2 hours, though wait times at security checks can sometimes increase the tour duration. Even if you do get caught in line, your guide will use this time to give you even more interesting facts and anecdotes about this famous structure

Optional Summit Access: You can upgrade this tour to our 'Summit Tickets' option and after touring Paris from the second floor, you will have a free time to go up by lift to the Summit to observe Paris from it’s highest panoramic platform.
