Why Our Insiders Chose This Tour

What You Can Expect

Skip the Line: Eiffel Tower Small-Group Tour

Enjoy amazing views over Paris from the Eiffel Tower

Meet up with your guide in central Paris (the meeting point is confirmed on your voucher) for your morning or afternoon tour. Once the group is together, take a short walk over to the Trocádero gardens. You'll have some time here to snap some incredible photos of the Eiffel Tower from a distance before continuing to the attraction itself.

Cross the Seine River via the Iéna Bridge with your group. Once you get to the tower's base, be sure to look up as your guide recounts how this magnificent monument was constructed in time for the 1889 World's Fair.

From there, you get to enjoy skip-the-line entry for a ride up to the observation deck on the second floor. Here, take in Paris attractions including the Arc de Triomphe, Notre Dame Cathedral and the Sacré-Coeur Basilica. Return to ground level to finish the experience.

Our guide was excellent. He made the experience fun and knowledgeable. Skip the line a must. Guide made getting through security much easier as well. This is a must!

It was very well organized and exactly as per the brochure. We were met at the designated point and guided throughout the process. There were about 15 people in the group, and no time, we felt we were not able to keep up with the guide. We were given headphones which were wirelessly controlled and spoken to by the guide. A definite must for anyone.

We saved the best for last on our weekend in Paris. This was the only tour we paid for and it was so worth it! The ticket lines weren't a problem so that wasn't the value, it was with the tour guide. It was great to hear so much of the background and history of the tower. So glad it wasn't torn down

Pretty cold and rainy when we were there in March, but the guide was fantastic and remained positive. Also recommended a wonderful restaurant that we went to for lunch. Would definitely recommend both, tour and restaurant.

Skip the Line tours are always worth it. Our guide was knowledgeable about La Tour Eiffel and was engaging. Our five kids ages 10 through 16 paid attention to her!

The guide was amazing! So much interesting and useful information given during the walk to the tower. Randa was a great story teller and involved the group. You also go straight to second story without delays which is the best way to go up the tower.
