Why Travelers Choose This Tour

This ticket lets you visit all three levels of the Eiffel Tower, with skip-the-line access to floor 2. 
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.

Our tour guide was great. He was friendly and informative. The ticket price and tour is worth skipping the long lines. We thoroughly enjoyed the tour.

Skip the line a real bonus, but was not expecting such an informative talk and tour as well. I have done the tower before but this tour was far more interesting than just looking at the view. Would recommend

Well worth the money. The guide was knowledgeable and I am glad we were able to skip the line thru this tour, because when we entered Eiffel tower around 10:00 am, the wait time in line was 2 hours and when we exited around 12:00 -1:00 pm, the wait time in line was 4 hours. We paid extra to go all the way on the top and the money paid was well worth it because we had two teenager kids with us and we all enjoyed the view of Paris from up top. The guide gave us detailed description on how and why the tower was built and on the top, there is a little closed office type of enclosure with Gustav Eiffel's statue in it, guide pointed us to that. We met some people down below who could not enter the Eiffel tower because the wait was frustrating. I am glad we were able to skip the line.

Definitely recommend! Skipping the line is worth it because you don't waste precious time which can be in short supply on some vacations. We had a great guide, who was pleasant, enthusiastic, and very knowledgeable about the history of the Eiffel Tower. The tour takes you to the top, where you experience the most amazing views of Paris.

It was wonderful. Not only did we by pass everybody in line, but our tour guid (I believe her name was Orla. I do know she's from Ireland) was well informed and made the tour interesting and gave us so much information, not only on the Eiffel Tower but also on Paris.
