What You Can Expect

Skip-the-Line Eiffel Tower Ticket in Paris

Skip-the-Line Eiffel Tower Ticket in Paris

Your Eiffel Tower experience starts as you meet your host near the tower for a short introduction to the historical landmark and Parisian icon, which was completed in 1889. Hear a little about its architecture and engineer, Gustave Eiffel, and what you can expect during your visit, and then make your way to the bottom of the tower with your skip-the-line ticket and provided information sheet.

Bypass the typically long admission queue via a priority entrance, and then head up the elevator on your own to reach the 1st and 2nd levels of the tower. You can spend as much time as you wish on each floor to admire the 360-degree views of Paris and look up at the intricate design of the tower from the inside. Gaze out at the Champ des Mars, the park in front of the tower, and see the city sprawled out below you, dotted with other famous attractions like Notre-Dame. You may leave the tower independently when you’re ready.

Please note:
  • This is not a guided tour. This is a timed group entry ticket that gives you priority access on the ground level; a guided visit is not included.
  • Skip-the-line access is provided but is subject to all procedures and security requirements of the Eiffel Tower.

Short walk to the tower great short explanation by Patrick and quick no lines entry to the elevators money well spent when you have 3 little girls with no patient for 2-3 hours standing in lines.

We really enjoyed the amazing eiffel tower tour. Ended up going earlier than our booking which was great as we had finished lunch and made our way to the ticket office. They do lots of tours and accommodate as best as possible. Very friendly and just a couple of blocks away from the tower.

Everything about our booking was seamless. Skipping the line was ideal given the crowds. Our guide was chipper and offered handy tips for the summit climb which is not included and costs 6euros

Skipping the line at the Eiffel Tower made this visit much more enjoyable. Our guide who walked us from the office to the tower, and then rode the elevator up the tower with us, was interesting and informative.
