Depart at 12:30pm (arrive strictly at 12:15pm) to skip the long lines at the Eiffel Tower. Guaranteed group tour that never exceeds 20 people
Sail past the long lines outside of Paris’ most iconic attraction on a small-group tour of the Eiffel Tower. With your priority access pass, head straight inside the magnificent landmark and embark on a guided tour with a knowledgeable guide. Listen to interesting anecdotes surrounding the rich history of the monument and then absorb the spectacular cityscape of Paris from the top level of the tower. Opt to take the tour at a variety of departure times and even watch a magical sunset from this unique vantage point. Numbers are limited to 20 people to ensure a personalized experience.
What to Expect
Greet your guide at a central city location in Paris and stroll to the Eiffel Tower with your skip-the-line ticket. Sail past lines often in excess of two hours and begin exploring the iconic monument immediately. Enjoy illuminating commentary from your guide and hear tales of the tower’s ingenious designer, Gustave Eiffel, and its rich historical heritage. Watch insightful documentaries in the cinematic theater on the 1st Level and see an original spiral staircase used by the architect himself.

Ascend to the 2nd Level to absorb the sprawling cityscape of Paris from above. Enjoy ample time to enjoy the panoramic vistas and then be entertained by stories of crazy exploits involving the tower. 

After your 2-hour guided tour comes to an end, feel free to continue exploring the Eiffel Tower independently. Ascend to the 3rd Level for a glass of champagne at the vertiginous summit and return to the 1st Level for an alternative perspective of the city. 

Please note: Your skip-the-line access does not apply to lines for the elevator to the 3rd Level. This tour provides skip-the-line priority, but is subject to all procedures and security requirements of the Eiffel Tower.

Tickets are available up to 90 days in advance of your chosen travel date.

Excellent tour

If you like a well informed tour guide who will provide you with loads of Parisian history, then you will love Kat. Over 2 hours of touring and Kat gives a lot of great anecdotes. Definitely recommend!

Well worth it

We had Remi as our guide and he was full of information about the tower and history of it. Walk isn't to bad on the body. Worth getting guide and skip the line but you can just buy tickets on the day and climb yourself.

Some tours can be up to 3+ hours from the start at the office. You can leave early, but I recommend tipping before you politely state you’d like to go your own way. A few in our group left after an hour. We stayed about 2.

It’s a short walk, probably less than 10 minutes from the meeting point.
