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.

Well organised tour with small groups of 15. The guide provided useful information and background history of Eiffel tower although it was difficult to understand him at times as he had a strong Irish accent. He was funny and amusing and gave us clear instructions/tips of how to get the most of the experience. It was a good decision to book this ticket as the queues were very very long. The Eiffel tower itself was an amazing experience.

Terrific. Our guide walked us from our meeting spot to the tower, and gave some information on the tower and its history before we went in. Well worth the money spent to skip the VERY long line to get in.

Our guide Stephen was most enthusiastic, knowledgeable and clearly captivated by this extraordinary monument to imagination and engineering. We did not go to the top which was closed for a lrngthy period that afternoon due to the huge number of visitors but got an excellent view across Paris from the second floor.

The trip was great, it was my 5th time to the Eiffel Tower and last time we came the lines were so long we did not even go up. So, this time I bought tickets ahead of time with Viato , we literally went to the front of the line at 9am when the line was already long and then being up there in the morning was great as there was not many people you had to navigate around. Bianca our tour guide was great, very informative on the history. Thank you!

Well organised, no fuss no problems, met a couple of blocks away from the Eiffel Tower , showed documents to them, walked back to Eiffel Tower pass queueing people into the exit and wallah we were in our visit . My poor sister organised our Versailles trip with someone , and it was a disaster awful , so badly organised. So thank you Soooo much

Skip-the Line was a great investment! We walked straight into the Tower, absolutely nowaiting, and spent as long as we wanted there. A must for every visitor to Paris.

The tour of Versailles Palace was outstanding. The organized tour with an excellent local guide using electronic headsets added much value. Although there were thousands of people there, we skipped the lines and got an up close description of many aspects of the history and tradition of France and life long ago. This is the only way so see Versailles.

Definitely well worth skipping the queue HUGE lines of people standing and waiting in hot summer sun. We did the self guided tour and took our time- plenty of opportunity for photos and to soak up the amazing view.
