Experience new perspectives from Paris’ most iconic landmark: the Eiffel Tower. By ascending the stairs, you’ll witness views most visitors never see. Walk on the glass floor of the first level, an experience not included in most Tower tours, and enjoy your guide’s insightful commentary as you complete the climb of a lifetime.

This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Eiffel Tower, 5 Avenue, 75007 Paris France

Meet your guide near the base of the Tower for an introduction to the structure before you begin the climb of a lifetime. At the ticket entrance, you’ll get your first close-up look at the monument while your guide arranges tickets.

Please note that during busy periods, there may be a wait to clear the line for the stairs and security. While this tour is scheduled to last two hours, wait times at this stage can sometimes increase this duration. If there is a wait, your guide will use the time to explain the fascinating history of the Tower’s creation. Rest assured these lines still move much faster than the ones for the elevators!

The City of Light will emerge before your eyes as you climb the steps to the first level, while enjoying your guide’s insightful commentary. Standard elevator tours tend to skip this level; you’ll have time here to take pictures or walk on the glass floor, 188 feet (57 meters) above the ground. More of the city’s most iconic landmarks will reveal themselves as you resume your climb to the second level observation deck: the Arc de Triomphe, Champs-Élysées, and Notre Dame cathedral.

You can also choose to upgrade your experience and ascend by elevator to the summit, for the best panoramic views the city has to offer.

Occasionally, owing to inclement weather or other such unforeseeable circumstances, the summit may be temporarily closed upon your arrival to the Eiffel Tower. In these rare cases, your group will be unable to access the summit. Should this occur, you will receive a refund for the difference in cost of accessing the summit.

When you’ve had your fill of the spectacular views, you can choose your route back to the ground floor – stairs or elevator – and continue your Parisian adventure.

It's a great workout. You do get to jump the security line with a special line for the tour groups and learn a few rare facts about the building of the tower along with attractions you can see from the tower. It can get hot, bring water and or be prepared to purchase watered climb. Wear comfortable shoes.
