Overview
Ascend the Eiffel Tower, a treasured Paris landmark, on foot with a small-group of people. Beat the elevator queues and climb up 704 steps (more than 30 flights) to the second viewing platform, with entrance fees included. Enjoy sweeping views over sites including the Arc de Triomphe and the Champs-Elysées. Upgrade to take the lift to the summit.
What to Expect
Make your way to the foot of the Eiffel Tower at your chosen morning start time (giving yourself time to clear security), and meet your guide to begin your climb.

Head up the more than 30 flights of staircases toward the top of the Eiffel Tower and listen as your guide sheds light on the life and times of Gustave Eiffel, the tower’s architect. The higher you climb, the better the views become.

Stop at both the first-floor and second-floor viewing decks, and take a circular walk around the platforms. Along the way, gaze out over top attractions including the Louvre Museum, Notre Dame Cathedral, and Sacré-Coeur Basilica.

Upgrade your tour to continue upward to the summit of the Eiffel Tower independently. See Gustave Eiffel’s office—restored to its original condition—and perhaps savor a glass of bubbling Champagne in the summit bar (own expense).

Afterward, take the elevator to street level to end your visit.

Very Informational

The guided climb was great, Souhib knows so much about the history of Paris. He was very friendly and helpful, I had a great time. Highly recommend, especially if it's your first time to Paris. The summit was really windy but totally worth going.

Let David guide your climb!

We had a great tour with David, our guide. I was a bit nervous when booking this tour because 704 steps sounds intimidating. I never had the feeling that the guide just wanted to get to the top and get it over and done with,...More
