Eiffel Tower Climbing Experience with Guide and Optional Summit Upgrade
  • Eiffel Tower Climbing Experience with Guide and Optional Summit Upgrade

    Experience new perspectives from Paris’ most iconic landmark: the Eiffel Tower. By ascending the stairs, you’ll witness views most visitors never see. Walk on the glass floor of the first level, an experience not included in most Tower tours, and enjoy your guide’s insightful commentary as you complete the climb of a lifetime.

    This is a typical itinerary for this product

    Stop At: Eiffel Tower, 5 Avenue Anatole France, 75007 Paris France

    Meet your guide near the base of the Tower for an introduction to the structure before you begin the climb of a lifetime. At the ticket entrance, you’ll get your first close-up look at the monument while your guide arranges tickets.

    Please note that during busy periods, there may be a wait to clear the line for the stairs and security. While this tour is scheduled to last two hours, wait times at this stage can sometimes increase this duration. If there is a wait, your guide will use the time to explain the fascinating history of the Tower’s creation. Rest assured these lines still move much faster than the ones for the elevators!

    The City of Light will emerge before your eyes as you climb the steps to the first level, while enjoying your guide’s insightful commentary. Standard elevator tours tend to skip this level; you’ll have time here to take pictures or walk on the glass floor, 188 feet (57 meters) above the ground. More of the city’s most iconic landmarks will reveal themselves as you resume your climb to the second level observation deck: the Arc de Triomphe, Champs-Élysées, and Notre Dame cathedral.

    You can also choose to upgrade your experience and ascend by elevator to the summit, for the best panoramic views the city has to offer.

    Occasionally, owing to inclement weather or other such unforeseeable circumstances, the summit may be temporarily closed upon your arrival to the Eiffel Tower. In these rare cases, your group will be unable to access the summit. Should this occur, you will receive a refund for the difference in cost of accessing the summit.

    When you’ve had your fill of the spectacular views, you can choose your route back to the ground floor – stairs or elevator – and continue your Parisian adventure.

    Duration: 2 hours 30 minutes

      I was looking forward to this the minute I got to Paris. The line to get to the stairs was extremely long but the guide kept us informed which made the wait feel shorter. Once we got our tickets and went to the stairs we moved pretty quickly. It is a tough climb for people who aren't in decent shape but the guides do good job of letting people catch their breath and legs, stopping at the different platforms. The views of Paris cant be beat from here, enjoy your time at the top.

      Booked a tour at 9:30 am which turned out to be the perfect time. Got there by 8:40 just in case but no line up at the security check. Our guide Henry was excellent. Smart, interesting, and passionate about the stories surrounding the tower. We had to queue for 15 minutes to get to the stairs but Henry had started the tour so the time flew by. He guided us up the stairs to the 1st platform where he spent 20 more minutes giving us a detailed history. Very interesting! We then walked up to the 2nd floor where he left us to explore on our own. Well worth it! Thanks Henry!!!

      We enjoyed the tour, however the climb up was challenging. I would suggest short breaks to enjoy the views. It really helped motivate me to continue on.

      We absolutely loved this tour. Everything went smoothly despite having to queue through security and several times to go to the next floor because our tour guide explained what was happening and was extremely interesting to listen to! Henry was energetic, very knowledgeable, approachable and highly interesting! We loved hearing so much of the history of the tower while visiting the different levels all the way to the top. It was brilliant and much more interesting than if we had just gone without a guide.

      I would definitely recommend this tour but you have to like to exercise, be fit, and climb a lot of steps. Our original tour was canceled at the last minute so they switched us to this one, it was great, and cost much less than the first tour booked. our tour guide was awesome, he had us take breaks between the first and second floor, explained everything to us, gave us time to walk around and then got us in the line for the elevator to go to the summit. The best part was we almost had a private tour without paying extra there was only 10 of us.

They were friendly and gave us lots of tips on the Do’s and Do not’s for being tourists in Paris.Helen (our tour guide) in particular, gave us a good understanding on the history of the Eiffel Tower and the momuments we get to see from the top of the tower.

      We had the best tour guide! His name was Leo and he knew SO much about the history of Paris and had a great sense of humor and loads of good humor. The climb was not strenuous and we saw a beautiful perspective of Paris - stunning from the top!

      Loved it, breath taking views. Line to get in was insane but so was the skip the line tours the same day we went. Just be prepared to be flexible with your time.

      Henry was our guide, and he was wonderful. There was an annoyingly long line for the stairs that was the fault of the Eiffel Tower, but otherwise it was fantastic. Walking was easier than expected. Do make sure you read the instructions on where to meet, as this will make everything easier.

      I highly recommend this tour. The skip the line was well with it. The guide Henry from Nigeria was informative, funny and engaging. He made this a great experience. There are 689 steps to climb so beware. I'm not in the greatest shape but I managed feeling a bit light headed and and shaky once I made it to the second level. There are restrooms and concessions available on both the first and second level. The views are amazing and a ticket to the summit was included.

      George escorted us up to the second level. He was extremely nice and knowledgeable. We learned a lot about the history and sites. The negative part is you don't get much else with this tour. There is no skip the line or anything. Just some great info that we may not have gotten without George. The climb is tough. If you are out of shape don't do it 704 stairs. I would recommend doing a tour that offers a bit more. The ride up to the summit is a MUST, but George doesn't go with you. It can also be cold and windy. Bring layers.

      Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic. However she was a little soft spoken and difficult to hear at times. My only other comment is regarding the tickets. This was supposed to be a skip the line tour and we assumed the tickets would be waiting for us as with every other tour we took on our trip. Instead after checking in we had to go wait in line for 35 minutes to get our tickets. Our guide stayed in line with us and told us interesting facts; which made the line seem to move faster; regardless it was a long time. Having said all of that, it was a great experience and we had a great time.
