Why Our Insiders Chose This Tour

What You Can Expect

Eiffel Tower Summit Priority Access with Host

Priority Access at the Eiffel Tower

Choose an entry time when booking; meet your host near the Eiffel Tower a half hour prior to your scheduled time. 

With your group, stroll the short distance to one of the world's busiest monuments. Bypass the long lines and head straight for the elevators, enjoying speedy and stress-free access to the second floor. Step out with your host to take in some of the best panoramic views in Paris from the viewing platform, 375 feet (114 meters) above the ground. Get a basic orientation to the sights and landmarks visible from your vantage point from your host, then explore the area at your leisure. Snap photos of the Louvre, Les Invalides, Sacré Coeur, Notre Dame Cathedral, and the Champ de Mars, among other standout Parisian highlights. 

After you've had your fill of the second level, proceed to the summit, where you can toast your trip with Champagne from the bar and view Gustave Eiffel's private apartments.

I highly recommend you book this in advance. The lines were huge outside. I would have hated to wait to get in. Also, the Summit ended up sold out so thank goodness we had our tickets.

It was a good experience, although I had to wait for the next group as I reached 5 minutes late, so you have to be very punctual.I personally enjoyed the trip.

This tour was well worth the money. Everything was organized, and the meeting location was about a 5 minute walk to the entrance of the tower. The young lady was an excellent guide, and spoke excellent English, and knew her facts about the tower, and history. What a fun trip. Everyone should be informed that there are security checks just like an airport. MANY of us had to surrender our little pocket knives in order to enter the grounds, and then go through another security check to go up the tower. Even tiny little pocket knives are not allowed. They have x-ray machines, and body scanners just like TSA. BEWARE, leave your knives at the motel, or you will lose them. I wish I had known in advance.

Our tour guide was fabulous and knew what she was talking about...and had a sense of humour too. Our tour up the tour was fantastic! Very informative.

The weather was awful so we were restricted to the 2nd stage but the views were worth it even so. Well organised with a good guide.

Best way to acces the tower. Faster, easier and took away all the stress of lining up.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended December 2017

GREAT DEAL! was able to skip two lines which would have been at least a 3-4hr wait and take the elevator which was a saver! Summit access was a nice touch for viewing the entire city but not necessary if you want to save costs. Make sure to visit the first level. There was a winter wonderland and alot of history provided. highly recommend! We all went in our own pace since the Eiffel Tower was so crowded.

Really struggled with this tour. On the day of the tour a security breach shut it down. Having a free day the next day gave us an opportunity to try again, however on attendance the tour office was told that the Eiffel Tower staff had called a snap strike. We eventually got up the tower three weeks later when back in Paris and it was well worth it. None of this was the fault of Viator and they were perfect to deal with regarding refunds, but just be aware it does not always go to plan.
