What You Can Expect
Learn about the history of Paris and the Eiffel Tower through the adventures of the characters your guide portrays as you view intriguing areas of the tower many visitors don’t even know about. Descend into the military bunker located beneath the Champ de Mars, the large open field adjacent to the tower. As you’ll learn, the tower once housed military communications equipment, and the bunker and its complex network of secret tunnels was created during World War I to serve as a vital evacuation route.
Continue your tour above ground at the Eiffel Tower’s engine room, viewing the impressive equipment that powers the tower’s hydraulic lifts. Next, skip the lines at those elevators and ascend to the 380-foot (116-meter) second floor of the tower with your guide. Head up to the rooftop of Michelin-starred Le Jules Verne restaurant and revel in the spectacular views of Paris as your guide concludes his story with heroine Lemony’s 100th birthday.
Your theatrical, behind-the-scenes tour of the Eiffel Tower ends on the second-floor observation deck, where you can linger as long as you wish or buy a ticket to the third level of the Eiffel Tower for even more dramatic panoramic views from 906 feet (276 meters) up.
"Nathanial" was superb, playing all of his characters to a "T". He had a very good command of the English language and was quite informative regarding the history of the Eiffel Tower and all of the behind-the-scenes mechanisms of the tower -- something the average tourist does not get to experience. We enjoyed this tour very much and highly recommend it!
The tour was well presented and the actor told a romantic story with some interesting facts about the tower and the bunker I would recommend this tour to see the tower if you have been before or if you are seeing it for the first time. It was also a great way to jump the queue for the tower.
Well worth the money.
