Itinerary
  • You'll start at
    Tour Eiffel
    75007 Paris, France
    The meeting point is NOT at the Eiffel Tower. It is located on the steps leading from Pont d'Iena to the river. The steps are by the carrousel on the end of the Pont d'Iena just in front of the Eiffel Tower (on the right when you are facing the tower from the bridge).

    Eiffel Tower
    Stop: 3 hours - Admission included
    Meet your guide near the base of the Tower for an introduction to the structure before you begin the climb of a lifetime. At the ticket entrance, you’ll get your first close-up look at the monument while your guide arranges tickets. Please note that during busy periods, there may be a wait to clear the line for the stairs and security. While this tour is scheduled to last two hours, wait times at this stage can sometimes increase this duration. If there is a wait, your guide will use the time to explain the fascinating history of the Tower’s creation. Rest assured these lines still move much faster than the ones for the elevators! The City of Light will emerge before your eyes as you climb the steps to the first level, while enjoying your guide’s insightful commentary. Standard elevator tours tend to skip this level; you’ll have time here to take pictures or walk on the glass floor, 188 feet (57 meters) above the ground. More of the city’s most iconic landmarks will reveal themselves as you resume your climb to the second level observation deck: the Arc de Triomphe, Champs-Élysées, and Notre Dame cathedral. You can also choose to upgrade your experience and ascend by elevator to the summit, for the best panoramic views the city has to offer. Occasionally, owing to inclement weather or other such unforeseeable circumstances, the summit may be temporarily closed upon your arrival to the Eiffel Tower. In these rare cases, your group will be unable to access the summit. Should this occur, you will receive a refund for the difference in cost of accessing the summit. When you’ve had your fill of the spectacular views, you can choose your route back to the ground floor – stairs or elevator – and continue your Parisian adventure.

The “optional upgrade to the summit” must be made online when you buy your tickets. You can’t do it on the day of your tour (which is what I believed when I read this add).

The stairs are fairly easy to do 330 or so to the first level (washroom and restaurants) and another 340 or so to level 2. You can then take the elevator down.

This was the only option to get tickets to see the tower, so glad we did it but the $$ is way more than you would pay of you were able to book through the Eiffel Tower webpage. Makes you wonder if these tour companies buy up all the tickets to then have a monopoly on things in the high season (July and August).

Our guide Amit was very informed but at times wanted to tell more stories than the audience wanted to hear.

Beautiful views of course, so that makes you not think about the extra $$$ you had to spend.

Great experience with an outstanding guide. We were disappointed that the weather turned windy and we were not able to use the summit part of this tour. The staff at the Eiffel Tower (not the tour company) were over-the-top crazy with their covid restrictions when the vast majority of Paris had lifted them.

Our guide Adebayo, or just Bayo, was phenomenal. His trivia information about the Eiffel was presented in both an insightful and humorous manner. Upon climbing the Eiffel, his facts about the surrounding architecture was informative. The best part was him pointing out the bridge Adele sung “Someone Like You,” and even sang some of it!!!

Guide was rude, did not get purchased ticket or tour. Summit was closed and no information was given to the group, guide shouted at some members of the group. When information was asked about how to get a refund as there was no communication with the group as a whole, the guide ignored us then got very snappy. When climbing the guide literally ran up the stairs ahead of everyone and boasted they could do the stairs in just 5 minutes, so we didn’t even get a tour and when we got to the second floor he wasn’t anywhere to be seen. So we didn’t get the expected tickets or a tour - when we contacted company for a refund they refunded a very small amount which did not reflect the lack of experience we received. I would not recommend booking a tour with this company as both the experience and customer service received were terrible and unsatisfactory.

We were hugely disappointed and spent over £100 more than necessary. Buy your tickets when you get there and you’ll save a huge amount, unless you want to spend £10s extra on a non-French guide who has only been in France for a year. There is no pre booking available for the Eiffel Tower so the guide will just buy your tickets when you arrive so you’ll still need to queue and you will then be handed a ticket which cost €10.20 for an adult, less for children. The same applies for the lift to the summit. You may be lucky and get tickets but you are not prebooking these tickets. These will also be purchased when you are there which you could do just as easily yourself with the same chance of success.

I would give a rating of zero if possible. I booked three tickets for myself and two teenage children at an exorbitant price of €152. There were so many people and we weren’t given any priority climbing up the tower so having a tour guide wasn’t necessarily beneficial in my opinion. The summit was closed due to maintenance works so we didn’t get to the top. The experience was underwhelming and the climb abysmal. Adult tickets for the climb to the first and second floor is €10.70 at the gate and comes to €20.40 if the access lift to the top is included and it’s half price for people under 24. The tour guide advised that we will receive a partial refund for not getting to the summit but I’m yet to receive a refund. I wouldn’t recommend booking the tickets on trip advisor at an exorbitant rate.

Dear dapoo998, Thank you for posting your review. With the Climbing tours, there are no tickets with elevator included, those are the only ones that the Eiffel Tower is selling in advance. The Eiffel Tower staff can decide to close the Summit anytime if it gets overcrowded and they don't inform tour operators in advance. We have forwarded your feedback to improve our services.

Really not what we expected, we paid to walk to the second floor and then take the lift to the top. We ended up waiting for more than an hour in line like everyone else even though we had paid 120 euros for two tickets!! No fast track. Then we were told the top deck was closed so they only gave us the ticket to the second floor and told us to claim a refund for the other. When we got to the second floor we were told by the French staff there that access to the top floor was available. Our tour guide told us to go back down to the line and wait another hour plus to get our tickets for the top. COMPLETELY UNACCEPTABLE. We came away not having seen what we had paid to see, very disappointed with the disorganisation and the experience. Honestly if you purchase and pay in advance surely this should mean you have a time slot and skip the queues? And more than anything you should get to see what you have paid for. Never again. Strongly NOT recommended.

Dear Rosanna R, Thank you for submitting a review on Trip Advisor. We are sincerely sorry to hear that the tour did not live up to your expectations. For the Eiffel Tower Climbing tours, which involves using the stairs only to reach the second floor, kindly note that the venue does not sell tickets in advance, they have to be purchased on the day of the tour. For this reason, this tour does not include the Skip the Line option and therefore during peak season, queuing is to be expected. Regarding the summit, I'm afraid that the Eiffel Tower may decide to close the summit last minute without any prior notice for security reasons and then reopen it if they deem it safe. Therefore, City Wonders has no control over this closure and cannot be held responsible for it. However, if you did not visit the summit, please kindly note that you are entitled to a partial refund. Please contact us directly at customer.service@citywonders.com to share more details with us ( your booking reference number and full name) so that we can further assist you in this matter. We wish you safe Travels Kindest Regards Chadia City Wonders

We booked a short break in Paris and I have dreamed of going up the Eiffel Tower for years, I was extremely excited to finally be fulfilling one of my bucket list trips. As instructed we arrived at the meeting point 30
Minutes before the excursion. As the time went on
I and a number of other people using the same service started to worry. So I called the information line only to be told the trip had been cancelled because the guide had covid. The operator insisted we had been sent a message to let us know about the cancellation. This is not true we or any of the other customers had not received any notification of the cancellation. As this was the last day of our trip
I asked if we could use the tickets without the guide, I was told this was not possible. To say I am upset at the complete lack of empathy and customer care would be an understatement. It makes me think that my money was taken on false pretences and the real reason for the cancellation was that there were never any tickets. I would suggest that you take great care when booking with this company

Dear Seaside601682, Thank you for posting your review. We are really sorry for the inconvenience caused to your trip. As we have had many guides recently getting sick, considering the current world situation, it is not safe to run tours with a sick guide.

This company is a scam. You will pay 4 times the cost of the Eiffel Tower ticket. They do not buy your tickets ahead of time, do not reserve anything, and there is no guarantee of the summit. They fail to tell you they may not be able to get the summit ticket. We booked the summit with them and could not get it. Here’s what they do for you: stand in line with you and everyone else that has no ticket, ask for tickets at the window and have a grad student tell you about the Eiffel Tower (all of which you can read on Wikipedia).

They buy the tickets on the day of, which would be easier for you to do yourself instead as they do it for a whole group(will be cheaper!). This made it inconvenient for us as we thought the time was scheduled but just meant were there at the busiest time queuing for ages. The summit was closed due to the busy time and so we paid £50ish for a €10 ticket only to get to the second floor. The female tour guide was very apologetic and understanding but the male guide was just plain rude- no one was blaming him, some people were simply confused.

Basically, don’t bother, you can do exactly what they did much quicker and cheaper and without having to wait around for other people.
