5 Avenue Anatole, Paris

The Basics

The Eiffel Tower's first floor features exhibits, kid-friendly experiences, and the 58 Tour Eiffel restaurant; the second deck includes the Jules Verne Restaurant; and the third-floor summit, accessible via a glass lift, features Gustave Eiffel's private apartments and a Champagne bar. Of course, all levels offer striking 360-degree views of the City of Light.

Although a testament to the structure's global popularity, the crowds can be quite large, meaning that priority-access tours are highly recommended—in peak season, long lines mean waits can often exceed three hours. Save precious sightseeing time by booking a skip-the-line Eiffel Tower ticket with or without a tour guide; this experience can combined with a Paris city tour that covers the top sights, such as the Arc de Triomphe, the Notre Dame Cathedral, Moulin Rouge, Montparnasse, and the Louvre museum. If you'd rather view the iconic structure in all its glory than head to the top, book a Seine River cruise, or a walking, biking, or Segway tour.

Wonderful Eiffel Tower Morning Tour by Elevator with Summit Access

Eiffel Tower Morning Tour by Elevator
The guide ( Shalimah?) was great giving us background of the eiffel tower and it was good that she managed to get us to be first in the queue that morning. Even though there was a 30 min delay due to a technical problem with the elevators she kept us entertained. I was glad we paid for this as they closed the summit 1 hour after opening due to the number of people but as we were the one of the first ones up we got to see everything and hardly had to wait except for them to open the elevators.
Incredible tour guide, trouble with company

Climb to the Eiffel Tower's Second Floor with Experienced Guide
Our tour was great! Henry, our tour guide, was extremely kind and incredibly knowledgeable on not only the Eiffel tower but France in general. While our tour guide was amazing, we had a bad experience at first when the company contacted us the day before saying they had to switch our time or possibly cancel. After a long discussion, they ended up accommodations our original booking; but it was a less than pleasant experience having to fight for the time we were promised in the first place.

Thought by booking a tour we would skip the lines however not the case. Our 8:45 tour started and didn’t get on to the Eiffel Tower until 11.
