The Basics

The Eiffel Tower's first floor features exhibits, kid-friendly experiences, and the 58 Tour Eiffel restaurant; the second deck includes the Jules Verne Restaurant; and the third-floor summit, accessible via a glass lift, features Gustave Eiffel's private apartments and a Champagne bar. Of course, all levels offer striking 360-degree views of the City of Light.

Although a testament to the structure's global popularity, the crowds can be quite large, meaning that priority-access tours are highly recommended—in peak season, long lines mean waits can often exceed three hours. Save precious sightseeing time by booking a skip-the-line Eiffel Tower ticket with or without a tour guide; this experience can combined with a Paris city tour that covers the top sights, such as the Arc de Triomphe, the Notre Dame Cathedral, Moulin Rouge, Montparnasse, and the Louvre museum. If you'd rather view the iconic structure in all its glory than head to the top, book a Seine River cruise, or a walking, biking, or Segway tour.

The sky’s the limit!
I don’t like doing all day tours. Our tour guy was great! He gave us the highlights and let us do our own thing. Two thumbs up! Tickets get you to both levels, straight to champagne bar. Recommended.

Skip the Line: Eiffel Tower 2nd Floor Priority Access Ticket with Host
Very good tour. The Eiffel Tower wasn’t very busy due to COVID protocols and it was very nice! I appreciated the guides knowledge and explanation of the tower’s history and the changing landscape of Paris

Eiffel Tower Tour with Direct Elevator Access to Summit
Henry with City Wonders did a wonderful job providing history and context of the tower's construction. This was my first experience with Viator and was a little worried about not receiving our tickets via a mobile delivery. We followed the instructions/ address about the redemption point and it all worked out fine. I recommend this tour for an informal way to see and ascend the Eiffel Tower.

Dining Cruising the Seine & Eiffel’s Glittering Tower’s Summit
The only slight glitch was that we didn’t receive the update of the program about the switching between the Eiffel Tower and dinner so a bit of commotion at the beginning but other than that everything else was top: the driver picking us up from the hotel and bending backwards to help us, the Eiffel Tower guide and the cruise / the staff on the boat. Especially for a first timer to Paris (and not only) the experience is one that cannot be missed. Highly recommended!

Paris in One Day with Louvre and Eiffel Tower Guided Tour plus Seine Cruise
Absolutely worth the price to do this tour. We had a small problem finding the initial meeting spot, but once we were there everything was amazing! We loved being able to skip the line into the Louvre and being guided to the important works. The Seine cruise was nice and we got a voucher to hop on/off for 24 hours. We loved the Eiffel Tower and being able to go up to the second floor- really nice photo opportunities! I would recommend this tour to anyone who doesn’t have a lot of time in Paris

We had such a great time on the Eiffel Tower tour! Yazid was our host and he made it fun, while also giving us a good history lesson. We were happy with his charisma and the professionalism of the company as a while. Thank you!

Eiffel Tower Morning Tour by Elevator Optional Summit & Seine River Cruise
We had the very first tour of the morning. Our guide was very friendly and shared much of the history of the Eiffel Tower prior to and during the tour. We had the option of going to the very top or just to the 2nd and 1st floors. There was a great museum on site and the views of course were spectacular. We very much liked the personal escorting to the Tower and Tour.

Eiffel Tower Tour with Summit Access and Seine Champagne Cruise
Henry was a wonderful tour guide and was very knowledgeable about the Eiffel Tower and all other landmarks we asked about (even those not included on the tour). This combined with the skip-the-line elevator to the summit were well worth it! The river cruise had beautiful photo opps, but the content was very dry because it was repeated in a few different languages.

Eiffel Tower Guided Climb Tour by Stairs
Tour was a nice way to get access to Eiffel Tower. Guide was well informed about the Eiffel Tower and tried to tell interesting stories about the monuments you could see from it. Some of it was inaccurate and took a bit of artistic license but overall friendly guide that tried to share their insights on the City of Lights
