Why Our Insiders Chose This Tour

What You Can Expect

Skip the Line: Eiffel Tower Behind-the-Scenes Theatrical Tour

Skip the line ticket to the second floor included

Meet your guide in front of the Eiffel Tower and set off on your 2-hour Eiffel Tower Behind-the-Scenes Theatrical Tour. Get swept up in a love story between a young American woman and a French aviator, played out by your costumed guide against the backdrop of the Eiffel Tower.

First, descend beneath the Champs de Mars and discover a military bunker built during World War I. The story continues underground as you follow the lovers through the secret WWI tunnels and learn more about the war years from your guide.

Next, peek into the Eiffel Tower’s engine room and get chance to see the inner workings of the iconic landmark. Marvel at the machinery used to power the high-speed hydraulic elevators and hear fascinating facts from your guide as you explore the areas normally off-limits to visitors.

Finally, it’s time to climb the tower! Use your skip-the-line ticket to dodge the long queues and head straight to the elevator for the high-speed ride to the second floor. Then, look out over Paris from the 380 foot (160 meter) high second-floor observation deck and spot top attractions like the Louvre, the Arc-de-Triomphe, and Notre Dame Cathedral.

At the top of the tower, hear the dramatic conclusion of the love story as you gaze out over the Seine River, the glittering Champs-Elysées and the distant Palace of Versailles. After you bid your guide farewell, continue taking photos or choose to ascend to the third floor of the Eiffel Tower (tickets can be bought after the tour), before heading back down in your own time.
