While visiting Paris, don’t miss the opportunity to ascend the city’s most iconic landmark: the Eiffel Tower. Climb the stairs with a guide to provide insightful commentary on the sights and historical structure. After a walk to the first level’s glass floor and the second tier, you have the option to continue to the summit (if upgrade selected at booking).
You'll start at

5 Avenue Anatole France, 75007 Paris, FranceWalk to the south entrance security check of the Eiffel Tower. Facing the Tower, the south entrance is on the right. Coordinator wears blue and holds a “Climbing tour” sign. Will be waiting in the gardens in front of the security entrance. He will be on the pathway called “Allée Léon Bourgeois”.

    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.

It was our first trip to Paris, and the number one thing on our agenda was to visit the Eiffel Tower. Making the climb to the second level was more than I expected, but I'm glad we chose to do it this way. It was an amazing experience!

Climbing to the Eiffel tower was really amazing! Just a few people in our group, no killing speed to the top :D. The guide (George S.) was very nice and shared with us many interesting details about the tower and its history. Very good experience, fully recommended ;)
