Visit one of Paris’ must-see attractions with this skip-the-line tour so you have more time to enjoy the incredible views! Choose from many different departure times to suit your sightseeing schedule, and meet your guide near the base of the tower. Beat the elevator queue, which can last up to 2 hours during peak times, and zoom straight up to the second-floor observation deck.
After stepping out of the elevator, soak up breathtaking views of the city in every direction through large picture windows. Get an aerial perspective on famous landmarks and monuments like the Louvre, Arc de Triomphe, Champs-Élysées, Notre-Dame Cathedral, Seine River and Grand Palais.
Learn about the incredible feats of engineering that allowed the tower’s construction for the 1889 World’s Fair. Hear tales about the chief designer, Gustave Eiffel, and the many legends that surround this modern Parisian icon. At the end of your 1.5-hour tour, you can opt to purchase a ticket to the tower’s top (third) floor if you like, or return to street level.
Please note: This tour provides skip-the-line priority entry, but is subject to all procedures and security requirements of the Eiffel Tower. Tickets are available up to 90 days in advance.
