Guided Eiffel Tower Tour by Elevator with Optional Summit Access Upgrade

Select Date and Travelers
2 travelers
    What to Expect
    This is a typical itinerary for this product

    Stop At: Eiffel Tower, 5 Avenue Anatole France, 75007 Paris France

    Your guide will secure tickets for the group and enter the tower for a ride to the 2nd level. From the ground and throughout your visit you will learn about Gustave Eiffel: The Young Engineer, The Entrepreneur, The Great Builder, and Life After The Tower along with the history of Paris during your "Tour From The Sky".

    Before you know it you have reached the second level where you will take a walk around the tower and hear little-known fun facts about the tower's original color, twinkling lights and individuals who made history with their daredevil stunts.

    Upon arrival at the second level take in the magnificent views of all the sights surrounding you. Get a birds’ eye tour of Paris with your feet far from the ground as your guide tells you about monuments and districts such as Montparnasse, Les Invalides, the Sacre-Coeur, Notre Dame, the Louvre Museum, the Arc de Triomphe and the Champs-Élysées.

    After the guided portion of your tour, and if you have purchased the Summit Access option, you will take a lift from the 2nd level up to the summit. Once there, see Gustave Eiffel’s office, restored to its original condition along with panoramic maps. Go to the Champagne Bar and treat yourself to some bubbles in the sky. When you are ready, simply take the elevator back down to the first floor or to street level and continue with your day!

    This tour includes elevator access to all levels. There is no tour at the very summit, as it’s so small, but you get a ticket for the elevator included.
