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.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2015

Our tour guide Katherine was outstanding. She provided a great deal of fun information about the history of the Eiffel Tower, and did so in a very energetic manner. I highly recommend this tour - when you are traveling, sometimes you trade time for money. We walked directly up to the entrance of the elevators up the tower, and bypassed a multi-hour line. Combine the time saved with the great presentation by our guide, this tour was completely worth it!

Amazing tour. Guide was great. We avoided lines, and once inside, he helped us navigate elevator lines. Best way to visit tower. Learned a lot about history and about Paris sites. By wearing ear pieces, never missed what guide was saying. 8 pm best time to visit. From ground see light show after.
