Full description

Enjoy bird’s eye views of Paris from the second-floor observation deck of the Eiffel Tower.

Meet your guide next to the Eiffel Tower for a brief introduction to the history of the tower. Then, enjoy direct access to the second floor, and hear interesting tales and anecdotes about the tower’s unique history from your guide.

Learn more about the “City of Light,” and enjoy privileged views of the Notre Dame, Louvre, Arc de Triomphe, and Les Invalides. Your guide will then leave you to enjoy the Eiffel Tower at your own pace.

Eiffel Tower website was sold out for Summit access, so bought tickets here. The tour with guide was short, but informative. Summit access was closed due to high winds, GetYourGuide refunded the difference. Very much appreciated. When Uber drops you off at the meeting point address given, don’t go to Eiffel Tower, look to the right side on the street at souvenir shop to pick up tickets. We were a little lost with pick up address and where uber dropped us off. Also, use Bolt in Paris, cheaper than Uber. Learned this on our last day there.

The group met the guide, Justine, at a giftshop near the Eiffel tower. She was super nice and was very open to answer all our questions. She provided general information about the tower on our way there and, once at the 2nd floor we stop at each side and she provided highlights about the areas from the city that we were looking at. It lasted less than the 2 hrs, so it was much shorter than expected, but other than that, I recommend it.

We met our guide in front of the souvenir shop, as described. I was initially under the impression that this was not a tour, but our guide explained that we could go our own way once we got inside the tower. She was so kind and knowledgeable about the history of the Eiffel Tower, and she was happy and excited to be there in general
