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, 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.

We had a great experience! Our tour guide Mauro was excellent and very knowledgeable. We went directly to the top, no line. One heads up, don’t bring anything with your countries flag on it, you will not be able to bring that up to the summit.

Poignant and quick guide to Paris history

Mauro was an excellent tour guide. He was very nice and helpful in the elderly group member's need to rest. He gave a great history of Paris while at the top, and pointed out the notable monuments and history. While we did skip the Ticket line, we understandably couldn't skip the security line. It only took about 20 minutes though before we made it to the top.

Hi, I believe this is fraud. I purchased “Skip the Line Tickets” for the Eiffel Tower, then was told to meet somewhere other than the Eiffel Tower to actually get the tickets. Tickets are supposed to allow entry. The tickets however did not get me in, and I had to meet you somewhere else to pick them up because I was “late” I had to repurchase new tickets, even though I was at the Eiffel Tower on time. All this after I in fact waited in the line. What you sold was not in fact a “ticket”, but rather a scam. I’m sure you know this is a common occurrence, as I wasn’t even the only one in my group this happened to. This is blatant fraud. I will be leaving the appropriate reviews and reporting fraud to my credit card company. Thanks, Joe

Though we bought tickets "skip the line" and summit access - we spent over an hour in a queue! Plus tour operator issued us the wrong tickets and were not helpful. Did not apologise fir providing the wrong service. Tour guide was not great either.

The guide Martha was easy to keep up with and had worthwhile information to share. I know this experience saved us time and hassle. Just a short walk from the tour operator’s office to the tower.

Our guide, Mauro, had a lot of fun stories about the Eiffel Tower and other Paris spots. Just be sure you are well aware of the meeting place, it is a few blocks from the tower.

Gonzalo was an amazing tour guide! We loved hearing the history and facts of the Eiffel Tower. Gonzalo was very personable and made a point to connect with everyone in the tour. Before leaving on the tour, we conversed with another tour guide, reddish hair and from Africa. He was so interesting to talk with and we appreciated him sharing his love of his home country. AMAZING TOUR!!!

Don’t use Viator- buy your own tickets

This was a skip-the-line tour go DIRECTLY to the elevator…. Instead we waited in a line for more than one hour. Guide said only one elevator was in operation. When we got back down I asked the tour operator if only one elevator was in service. I was told two elevators had been in service the entire day and that the guide had gone to the wrong line. So much for skip-the-line…. Absolutely no commentary on the tour - none - it was hallo I’m your tour guide… took us to second floor and he disappeared…. WOW
