Travel Flexibly 5 / 5 See All 24 Reviews · 2.00h · Paris, France

Eager to see Paris’ enchanting skyline from above? That's why we have designed an Eiffel Tower tour to whisk you up to the summit platform for a breathtaking view of Paris' landmarks. Through our partnership with the Eiffel Tower, we have privileged access to the tower's second floor via elevator, granting you entry to the summit platform as well.

  • Eiffel Tower tickets
  • Meet your tour host
  • Look through the glass floors
  • Picture-perfect moment
  • Explore all floors up to the summit
  • Take your time to admire Paris views

By securing your ticket in advance, you guarantee yourself a coveted spot to admire Pairs from an exclusive viewpoint. After meeting your friendly host at the designated meeting spot near the entrance, you’ll pass through security together.

Ask your knowledgeable host any questions, then set off to explore the Eiffel Tower at your own leisure. Skip the endless stairs and take the elevator up to the second floor. From there, continue up to the summit platform and admire the magnificent panorama of the city below for as long as you desire.

Eiffel Tower Elevator Ticket with Summit Access 

Your 2-hour Eiffel Tower tour includes:

  • Guidance through Eiffel Tower security

  • Elevator ticket to the second floor

  • Host to lead you through security

  • Summit access with regular tickets

  • Admire Arc de Triomphe, Champs Elysées, Notre Dame, and more from above

  • Time to visit the museum, shops, and restaurants located within the Eiffel Tower

Meet Tour Host Near the Eiffel Tower

After meeting your tour escort at the designated meeting spot and receiving your Eiffel Tower ticket, you’ll walk together to the entrance. Pass through security stress-free, and head to the elevator to begin your journey up the Eiffel Tower. Before stepping inside and being left to explore the Eiffel Tower independently, your host will share some interesting facts and gladly answer any questions.

Eiffel Tower Second Floor

A quick elevator ride brings you to the second floor of the Eiffel Tower, where you’ll be treated to the first of many breathtaking views. Stroll along the spacious observation deck and watch the panorama of Paris unfold before you, and see if you can spot the Arc de Triomphe, Notre-Dame Cathedral, and the Louvre below.

Don’t forget to visit the exhibits detailing the tower's history and engineering marvels–and if you’re hungry, stop by one of the various snack bars to treat yourself to a drink or nibble with a view. While you could stay here all day, the next part of your Eiffel Tower experience promises to be even more magnificent.

Eiffel Tower Summit Platform

With your summit ticket ready, hop in line and catch the elevator to the top of the Eiffel Tower. Immediately upon stepping outside, you’ll discover just how far Paris stretches out around you. Feel free to linger up here as long as you’d like, and if you're in the mood to celebrate, opt for a drink at the perfectly-placed champagne bar lingering 906 feet above the city.

After you've soaked up the stunning scenery, make your way to the Eiffel Tower's first floor, where you'll discover a small museum about the tower and a glass floor perched 187 feet above the ground. Once you're done, head down to the ground floor and carry on with your exciting Parisian journey!

We cancelled our tour 24 hours 10 minutes prior to the tour, expecting a full refund. They counted us as a “no show” and now giving us a hard time communicating for that refund.
