COVID-19 Update

Due to health and safety regulations, this itinerary may change. See Know before you go for the latest updates.

With this guided Eiffel Tower tour, you will meet your German-speaking guide and listen to amazing stories about Paris and the creator of the iconic tower. See a statue of Gustave Eiffel, the visionary man who designed the controversial monument. Your guide will secure tickets for the group, then you will bypass the long elevator lines and enter the tower to climb 704 steps over 30 flights. As you climb, your guide will tell you more about the young engineer, entrepreneur and great builder, Gustave Eiffel.

Upon arrival at the first level, take a well earned break. Stand on the new glass floor, and enjoy an interactive multimedia exhibit and short film, if time permits. On the way to the second level, hear little-known facts about the tower's original color, and individuals who made history through daredevil stunts. Upon arrival at the second level, take in the bird's-eye views of Paris, as your guide tells you about monuments and districts you can see.

If you choose the summit access option, you will receive a ticket for the lift to the tower's summit and continue your adventure on your own. Once there, see Gustave Eiffel's office, restored to its original condition, along with panoramic maps. Go to the bar and treat yourself to some champagne. When you are ready, simply take the elevator back down to street level and continue with your day.
