What You Can Expect

Skip the Line: Small-Group Eiffel Tower Illuminations Tour

See the Eiffel Tower and the rest of the City of Lights illuminated at night

Meet your guide and group near the Eiffel Tower at your selected time (5:30pm during the winter or 8pm during the spring and autumn). Your guide will escort you to the tower while offering some insight into its history.

With your pre-booked skip-the-line ticket, bypass the long entrance lines and enjoy priority access to the Eiffel Tower elevator, giving you more time to admire the views from the top. Seeing Paris lit up at night is a totally different experience than seeing it during the day. Get ready for some jaw-dropping views!

Eiffel Tower 1st Level
On the first floor, you’ll hear stories that bring the 125-year-old tower to life, giving you an understanding of the feat of engineering and design that went into this structure — once the tallest in the world. Learn about the man who built the iconic tower, Gustave Eiffel, and see part of the original spiral staircase that once led from the second floor to the top level and was used by Gustave to get to his office.

Eiffel Tower 2nd Level
Follow your guide up to the second floor for opportunities to take in magnificent views of Paris illuminated at night. There are two tiers on the second level, giving your group more space to explore. Your guide will tell you stories of the stunts and exploits that have happened around the Eiffel Tower (like planes flying underneath the tower).

Eiffel Tower 3rd Level (Summit)
At the end of your tour, your guide will bid you adieu and invite you to ascend to the third level (the summit) on your own. Your ticket includes access to the summit, where you’ll be treated to a stellar panoramic view of the sparkling City of Lights.

Amazing tour and excellent guide! It was bucketing down with rain, which was interesting up the Eiffel tower, but that didnt dampen the enthusiasm nor sprit of our guide Denise. She was bubbly and informative. Grazie!
