What You Can Expect

Skip the Line: Small-Group Eiffel Tower Sunset Tour

Skip the Line: Small-Group Eiffel Tower Sunset Tour

Meet your guide and group a few streets away from the Eiffel Tower in the early evening. From there, your guide will offer some insight into the history before you start your ascent. A pre-booked, skip-the-line ticket offers you priority access to the Eiffel Tower elevator so you can have more time admiring the views from the top. After the introduction, head to the elevators to begin your sunset tour of the Eiffel Tower.

Eiffel Tower 1st Level
On the first floor of the Eiffel Tower, discover more about the man who built the iconic tower, Gustave Eiffel, and hear stories that bring the 120-year-old tower to life. See part of the original spiral staircase, which once led from the second floor to the top level and was used by Gustave to get to his office. This level will give you an overview of the feat of engineering and design creation that went into this structure -- once the tallest in the world.

Eiffel Tower 2nd Level
Your guide will then take you up to the second floor of the Eiffel Tower, where you will be given plenty of opportunities to take in stunning views of Paris as the sun begins to set. There are two tiers on the second level, which will give your small group space to explore. Hear your guide recount stories of the stunts and exploits that have happened around the Eiffel Tower (like planes flying underneath the tower).

Eiffel Tower Summit (3rd Level)

Once the tour has concluded, you will still have time to explore more of the Eiffel Tower. The price of the tour includes a ticket up to the summit of the tower, on the 3rd level. Here, take in magnificent views of Paris and see the famous City of Light come alive.

Please note: Tickets are available up to 90 days in advance of your chosen travel date.

Katrina was an amazing tour guide. Her stories and pacing of the tour were spot on. I was not bored at all and enjoyed the history lesson being given as we walked around the main floor of the tower and she pointed out and explained the history behind the main historical attractions visible from the tower.

My wife and I felt very fortunate that when we tried to purchase tickets to the tower on line, they were sold out for that day. We looked around and found this tour was still not fully booked and decided to take a chance. It was beyond what we had hoped. Thank you Katrina for doing such a splendid job!!

Our third attempt to see the Eiffel Tower, and this time we FINALLY got to ascend without wasting hours, thanks to this skip-the-line tour! Our guide, Christine, was great, mixing history, with points of interest, with facts of daily life in Paris. The sunset tour was a great time to ascend, since we enjoyed the view in daylight, and thrilled to the City of Light after dark. And we were ON the Eiffel Tower when its lights were turned on, then again when it sparkled! This is a thrilling way to tour the Eiffel Tower.

This is a great tour... The Skip the linefeature was worth the price of the tour alone, but our guide made this a fantastic tour. On the short walk from the tour company to the Tower we learned about Gustav Eiffel and the history of the tower. On the second floor , our guide from Austin Tx. highlighted the points of interest and continued with a history lesson ..she was knowledgable, friendly and fun. The view after dark from the t is amazing ,,,,we'll be back !!!

Loved this tour and especially our adorable guide Karina. We took the 8:00p tour so we were able to see views in the daylight, sunset and evening, Katrina was very knowledgable about the sites and history of Paris. Also very warm and personable so request Karina for your tour guide.

Our tour guide was wonderful. She knew the history of the Eiffel Tower and the surrounding area. Even though this was a large group, we had headsets and was able to hear everything. We enjoyed the tour very much.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2015

Tour was very well organised. We met at the tour office beforehand and walked with our guide to the Eiffel Tower. Access to the lifts was very easy. Once up on the second floor we were shown all the main areas of Paris.

The weather was awful but the tour and in particular the tour guide were fantastic. Tour guide was interesting and informative. Skipping the line is the only way to visit the Eiffel Tower
