Why Travelers Choose This Tour

Get a workout in with this tour by climbing up the stairs of the Eiffel Tower.
Meet your guide and small group of people at the Eiffel Tower in time for an 8.45am or 9.15am departure. After hearing a little bit about the iconic tower, follow your guide on the long walk to the top.
Climb the 704 steps over 30 flights to the second-floor viewing deck of the tower, stopping along the way to take in the views and learn more about Gustave Eiffel, the building of the tower, and its fascinating history.
Stop at both the first-floor and second-floor viewing decks, where you’ll be rewarded with a dramatic panoramic view of Paris, looking out over the Seine River, the Champs-Élysées, and Montparnasse. As you gaze out over the city and take photos, your guide will point out landmarks like the Louvre, the Notre Dame Cathedral, Les Invalides, and the Sacre-Coeur.
On arrival at the second-floor, you can choose to end your tour there and make your own way back down, or purchase a ticket for the summit, where you can see Gustave Eiffel’s office or treat yourself to a drink at the Champagne Bar.

Climbing the tower steps is quite easy and rewarding as you see the view gradually change as you climb. The climb wasn't rushed, Shoahib made sure we all made it safely and provide us with a great background of the tower and Paris history. Do this tour for sure!

We booked this tour not realizing it was a climb! All the same we are thrilled to have done it!! Only 703 steps then a lift to the very top of the tower. A great way to see this iconic structure.

This tour was amazing. A-M-A-Z-I-N-G. Our tour guide was Alexandria. She was very fun and welcoming to our family. She provided lots of information about the tower and kept us motivated to keep climbing. While we were all tired by the end of the first level, we had a nice break to get ready for the next climb. I highly recommend this tour. It is perfect for seeing all of the inside of the tower and hearing all about the construction and many anecdotes of happenings to the tower and Paris.

This was a great tour, full of information, and our tour guide was great. The climb wasnt as hard as I was anticipating based off the description, so don't let that deter you! I wish we would have known how long the line was to get to the top, we had to skip the line for the elevator as we had to be somewhere else for our schedule.

A great tour and guide. David was an excellent guide, he knew the history and his English was perfect. The tower is thrilling to visit. Glad we did it.

My sons and I enjoyed walking up the steps of the Eiffel Tower and hearing stories of it from construction to modern day. It was exciting to see it light up during our sunset tour. Even though we had a guide we still had to wait in lines but they were manageable. Being in the Tower is truly a Wow experience!

Our guide Monique was interesting and provided a lot of information about the tower and Paris. You skip the line which is also long and go directly up to the 1st and 2nd levels. You not only benefit from a guided tour but also no waiting in line. We purchased the summit passes at the time of booking and would recommend if you wish to go to the very top.

This was one of the best tours that we have done. Alexandra was our guide. We climbed the first half of the some 700 steps to the first floor. Once we were all the first floor, Alex gave background and history of the tower. Then we had some time to explore the gift shop and restaurant. After that we continued our climb to the second floor and the remaining some 350 steps. Once we were all the second floor, Alex continued giving history on the tower. She also pointed out some things to do and not to do while in Paris. She was very personal and informative. We then chose to go to the summit. Luckily you can only get to the summit via elevator. I don't consider myself to be athletic but the climb was not bad at all. It was super cool to slowly getting higher and higher over Paris. If you can an informative and different way to see Paris and the tower I highly, highly recommend this tour.

I mistakenly booked a tour for June 27, when I wanted July 3. When I notified Viator staff of my mistake, they came to the rescue and rebooked our tower visit for July 3. The tour and guide were awesome!!
Thanks so much for a great adventure at the Eiffel Tower!
