The Eiffel Tower is widely considered the very symbol of Paris, and the city’s most-treasured landmark. On this small-group guided tour—limited to 15 people—beat the elevator queues and take the stairs to the second viewing platform, with entrance fees included. Enjoy sweeping views over sites including the Arc de Triomphe and the Champs-Élysées, and upgrade to take the lift to the summit.
What to Expect
Make your way to the foot of the Eiffel Tower at your chosen morning start time, then meet your guide to begin your climb. Widely considered among Paris’ top attractions, the Eiffel Tower boasts some of the city’s finest views.

Head up the 30 flights of staircases toward the top of the Eiffel Tower and listen as your guide sheds light on the life and times of Gustave Eiffel, the tower’s architect. The higher you climb, the better the views become—so the effort is well-rewarded!

Stop at both the first-floor and second-floor viewing decks, and take a circular walk around the platforms. Along the way, gaze out over top attractions including the Louvre Museum, Notre Dame Cathedral, and the Sacré-Coeur Basilica as your guide brings the tower’s history to life.

Upgrade your tour to continue upward to the summit of the Eiffel Tower independently, and enjoy the farthest-reaching views the tower has to offer. See Gustave Eiffel’s office—restored to its original condition—and perhaps savor a glass of bubbling Champagne in the summit bar (own expense).

Afterward, take the elevator all the way to street level to conclude your tower visit.
