Make the most of your time in Paris with direct access to the Eiffel Tower. Admire breathtaking views of the city from the 2nd-floor observation deck and the summit.

Meet your guide and ascend in the elevator to the 2nd-floor observation deck. Hear about the history of the tower, from its construction in 1889 to the most iconic symbol of Paris. Then, take another elevator to the summit of the tower to marvel at the skyline of Paris from above. Look out for monuments such as the Sacre-Coeur Basilica, Notre Dame Cathedral, and Pont Neuf.

      The only big problem we found is, at least in the info in the Spanish map is: the name of the Street in the Meeting point is not written. You should add it, because at the Tower are different entrances, and the clercks of there don't give the right info. plus if they talk in Frenan, a language we don't manage. Our guide Caterina was super. plus at the Meeting point there were no signal of Getyourguide. Please put one. It was a really Odisse for us to find it.

      Very good experience! Due to circumstances beyond our control, we arrived three four hours late to the appointment with the guide, we started looking for him but we thought he would have left because of how late it was, but the man found us ... ... and we had hired to go up to the second floor, but the guide He heard that my son wanted to go up to the third (the top of the Eiffel Tower, and he gave us the tickets for the third !. Excellent deal!

      Very good tour guide; helpful in pointing out all the sights that should be seen from the 2nd level. It was especially good to have so few tourists at the Eiffel Tower (and all the other sites we have visited on this trip). Our tour included a pass to the Summit, which was no big deal, and I wouldn’t bother going up there again.
