What You Can Expect

Skip-the-Line Eiffel Tower Ticket in Paris

Skip-the-Line Eiffel Tower Ticket in Paris

Meet your host near the Eiffel Tower and listen to a brief introduction about this fascinating landmark– its history, architecture and views – before heading to the base of the tower with your skip-the-line ticket and fact sheet. Queues in the peak summer months can sometimes last up to two hours; fortunately, you’ll bypass those lines by heading through the priority entranceway and then up the elevator independently.

Your ticket includes entry to the tower’s 1st and 2nd levels, as well as its summit, and you can spend as little or as long as you like at each point. Walk around independently, soaking up unforgettable views from this iconic architectural marvel, and reading about the tower’s history from your fact sheet. Completed in 1889, the Eiffel Tower took precisely two years, two months and five days to make. While it wasn’t loved by the locals originally, it wasn’t long before it won over the hearts of Parisians and visitors alike.

On the 1st level, look down at the pin-like people lined up below you, and gaze at the Champ des Mars -- Paris’ famous green park -- stretching out toward Montparnasse Tower. The best vistas are arguably seen from the 2nd level, where you’re high enough to soak up the city skyline, but still close enough to see famous landmarks (like Notre Dame Cathedral) without needing a map.

For jaw-dropping views, continue to the summit! The skip-the-line access you get for the first two levels does not include the 3rd level; everyone must wait for one elevator, but the line doesn't usually last longer than 30 minutes – a short time to wait to stand at the top of the Eiffel Tower!

This is not a guided tour. This product is a timed group entry ticket that gives you priority access on the ground level, but a guided visit is not included.

This tour provides skip-the-line access, but is subject to all procedures and security requirements of the Eiffel Tower.

Please note:
Please note: Due to maintenance work taking place at the summit of the Eiffel Tower during January and February 2014, you may find that access to the summit will not be possible. Maintenance work is also taking place on the lifts until Spring 2014.

Excellent, very efficient

We found this to be a really good purchase.

The brief talk about the tower before going up was just enough to be interesting without being long-winded and boring. We skipped-the-line as promised, and had a great trip up the tower.

The only downside to the experience was that we arrived at the meeting point early - 20 minutes before the requested meeting time - so we gave our details to the tour guide and she said that the tour would be leaving at 3:10 pm, and she suggested we could go to the street café just 20 yards from the meeting point.

My wife and I did this, and sat outside the suggested café, able to see the tour guide just along the street.

However, when the time came to meet up with the tour guide again, we got up from our table, only to see the whole group walking off down the street towards the tower. We weren't late - it was 2 or 3 minutes before the stated departure time, but no one came just 20 yards to try to find us. They just left without us. I repeat - we were not late.

So we had to run full pelt across and along a busy street to catch up with the group. That was the only downside to the experience, but the guide did apologise about it.

We would give this experience 10 out of 10, had we not been left behind. But, as we were, we give it 8.

Well worth doing, in our opinion.
