What You Can Expect

Skip the Line: Eiffel Tower Behind-the-Scenes Theatrical Tour

Enjoy a view of Paris from the Eiffel Tower's 2nd floor on your theatrical tour

Meet your guide and small group in front of the Eiffel Tower to begin your absorbing 1.5-hour morning or afternoon walking tour of one of the world’s most recognizable landmarks, originally built for the 1889 World’s Fair. Your actor guide will draw you into the romantic story of a young American woman named Lemony and a French aviator named Antonin who fall in love at the Eiffel Tower.

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.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended April 2014

Great tour - included behind the scenes in the Champ de Mars bunker and also under the tower to see how the elevators work which is not seen by most visitors. We had an amazing view on the day as it was a very clear day - the tour guide even said it was the clearest day he had ever seen. Tour guide was lovely and very enthusiastic and proud of his city and the tower which made the tour even better!
