Skip-the-Line Eiffel Tower Ticket in Paris

Skip-the-Line Eiffel Tower Ticket in Paris

Meet your host a few streets away from the Eiffel Tower and listen to a brief introduction about this fascinating landmark– its history, architecture and views – before heading to the base of the tower with your skip-the-line ticket and fact sheet. Queues in the peak summer months can sometimes last up to two hours; fortunately, you’ll bypass those lines by heading through the priority entrance way and then up the elevator independently.

Your ticket includes entry to the tower’s 1st and 2nd levels, and you can spend as little or as long as you like at each point. Walk around independently, soaking up unforgettable views from this iconic architectural marvel, and reading about the tower’s history from your fact sheet. Completed in 1889, the Eiffel Tower took precisely two years, two months and five days to make. While it wasn’t loved by the locals originally, it wasn’t long before it won over the hearts of Parisians and visitors alike.

On the 1st level, look down at the pin-like people lined up below you, and gaze at the Champ des Mars -- Paris’ famous green park -- stretching out toward Montparnasse Tower. The best vistas are arguably seen from the 2nd level, where you’re high enough to soak up the city skyline, but still close enough to see famous landmarks (like Notre Dame Cathedral) without needing a map.

This is not a guided tour. This product is a timed group entry ticket that gives you priority access on the ground level, but a guided visit is not included.

This tour provides skip-the-line access, but is subject to all procedures and security requirements of the Eiffel Tower.

Tickets are available up to 90 days in advance of your chosen travel date.

Well worth the visit . Consider buying skip the line tickets as it is busy even early on.

Very convenient skip the line ticket! Learned a few quick things from the tour guide during the walk over from the Fat Tire Tours office. Fun fact, there is an ice skating rink on level 1 of the Eiffel Tower during the month of January! It was very cold and we decided not to skate but it was very cute and looked fun!

This was great - the lines to get in the Eiffel Tower the day we went 12/29/15 were ridiculously long 4-5 hours long from what I heard, so being able to skip to the front was really amazing. Don't be discouraged that this tour only takes you to the second level of the tower - you can actually buy tickets to the summit on the 2nd floor. This was well worth the money!

Very effecient and knowledgeable guide. The best way to see the Eiffel Tower. We took the Metro from CDG to our hotel, which was very close to the tour guide meeting point and then to the Tower.

Going to the front of the line was a real bonus! I have previously waited in the long line, which took up most of a day. This was quick and easy.....

A fast way to access level 2, save time when in Paris an avoid the very long queues. We picked up our tickets around the corner from the Tower and were walked down as a large group to the tour, this is where we entered as part of a group and on this particular day we had no other groups in front of us not sure if it is always like this or we got lucky a very small queue for security check and then we were free to spend as much time as we liked up the Tower,
