What You Can Expect

Skip the Line: Eiffel Tower Tickets and Small-Group Tour

Head straight up to the second floor of the Eiffel Tower and enjoy amazing views

Greet your guide at a central city location in Paris and stroll to the Eiffel Tower with your skip-the-line ticket. Sail past lines often in excess of two hours and begin exploring the iconic monument immediately. Enjoy illuminating commentary from your guide and hear tales of the tower’s ingenious designer, Gustave Eiffel, and its rich historical heritage. Watch insightful documentaries in the cinematic theater on the 1st Level and see an original spiral staircase used by the architect himself.

Ascend to the 2nd Level to absorb the sprawling cityscape of Paris from above. Enjoy ample time to enjoy the panoramic vistas and then be entertained by stories of crazy exploits involving the tower. 

After your 2-hour guided tour comes to an end, feel free to continue exploring the Eiffel Tower independently. Ascend to the 3rd Level for a glass of champagne at the vertiginous summit and return to the 1st Level for an alternative perspective of the city. 

Please note: Your skip-the-line access does not apply to lines for the elevator to the 3rd Level. This tour provides skip-the-line priority, 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.

I think any time you are able to have a guide give history and explanation about what you are viewing it is worth having a guide. It would have been easy to just wait in line and buy a ticket to the top, but we would have missed so much.

The tour guide was very knowledgable and the skip the line tickets were worth their weight in gold. The line to the third floor wasn and #39;t awful either - waiting was made better by the tour guide continuing to give information while waiting.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended April 2016

Every thing was planned very good. Our tour guide was very motivated and with good knowledge. I had visited the Eiffel tower twice before and I was accompanying my family this time, did not really expected something fun, but the tour was very exciting.
Also had some questions which I had to contact costumer service, and the help and information was very accurate. Glad with the tour and will recommend it.
