What You Can Expect

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.

The tour itself was great! It was very crowded in the tower which made it hard to get around there.

We enjoyed our trip to the Eiffel Tower very much. We went on a cloudy day, so there were no crowds, however our guide was very friendly and it was a pleasure to speak with him about the Tower.

Had an absolutely fab time, just a shame we couldn't get to the top floor because of bad weather.

This was amazing, so well organised. The group in the shop were fantastic and once you see the queues there you realise how lucky you are to have organised a skip-the-line-Eiffel trip. Shelley lead us there and she was fantastic and even gave our group an introduction to the Eiffel tower and some very interesting facts. I am writing this on Saturday 14th November as I am concerned about the lovely people we met in Paris, Shelley and the other guys were equally helpful and I'd like to say how sorry and devastated I am about the occurrences in Paris last night and hope that they are okay. I am very saddened by this and for all the Parisiennes. However, back to the tour. Five stars all round.

When we arrived, a Parisian rain was falling and the line was winding and long to get into the Eiffel Tower. Being able to bypass this, to get out of the rain, to not waste time standing in line, is invaluable. In addition, we were given the history behind the tower. Once inside on the second level, it is inexpensive to go to the top where you will see a breathtaking view of Paris. This is well worth the money!!

No doubt it was worth the extra cost to skip the line. When we went up at 9am there were hundreds and hundreds of people in various lines. We got to the top viewing platform quickly and again avoided more cues which we saw on the way down just to get to the platform. We got the best vantage points to enjoy the tower before the masses. The guide spoke briefly with some interesting facts before taking us to the gate.

First class experience from the moment we picked up the tickets and met our guide Bianca till she left us at the tower for our visit. Made the visit so much more worthwhile with information that wouldnt have learned elsewhere. Well recommended to anyone visiting Paris.

It was very informative.

Very good experience. Efficient, friendly staff. They escorted us to the entry point of the Eiffel Tower and everything went smoothly. We didn't have very long to wait at all. Much better than lining up for hours.
