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.

Had a great tour of the tower at sunset and the lighting of the tower. Guide was great told us all about the construction and how it was preserved after the World's fair. Headsets are a great help in being heard above the crowds. Only was to go is the skip the line. The lines were huge but we went right up. Bring your own earbuds or earphones is possible as the ones they gave us to use are not very comfortable. Bundle up as it is windy up on the tower.

Daniel was our tour guide that day. He was all this smiley and very friendly and always able to answer all the question. He told us so many funny urban legend about Paris. Too bad we couldnt see any sunset because it was so cloudy.

We thoroughly enjoyed this tour. Our tour guide was an incredible source of very interesting information, and the 'skip the line' front of line access was wonderful and meant that there was no waiting. We would definitely recommend this tour.

The meeting location was easy to find and they were very organized. Our tour guide, Steven, was friendly, enthusiastic, informative and humorous. The ability to skip the lines was a major plus and I would highly recommend this option to all, as the lines to buy tickets and enter were very long. We were given lots of interesting information about the tower and it's surrounding monuments, then had the freedom to explore the top level at our leisure. Great experience and worth every Euro!

This was the way to go! I had tried to buy tickets to the Summit of the Eiffel Tower, but was too late. Then I found this tour through Trip Advisor. The value for the price was exceptional. Our tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and entertaining, and we all agreed it would not have been 1/2 as good without him. He shared some of French History with us through great stories of the history of Paris. Really worth every penny!
