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.
Our tour guide was perfect. He was very entertaining and informative. This tour is the best way to experience the Eiffel Tower. We enjoyed it thoroughly.
Our tour guide (who played a number of characters during the tour) was a very animated and talented guide! We had a wonderful time learning about the history of the Eiffel Tower through hearing of the beautiful love story of Lemony and her dashing pilot love. We were running late for the tour (metro problems) and the tour was very gracious and waited for us, which was above and beyond expectation. I would recommend this tour for anyone visiting Paris and seeing the Eiffel Tower for the first time!
