The Eiffel Tower is one of the world’s most-iconic monuments, welcoming over 7 million visitors every year. From the breath-taking views enjoyed from the Tower to the colorful tales surrounding its creation, it’s no wonder that the Eiffel Tower is a must-see for any visitor to Paris. What better way to experience the magnificence of this world-famous monument than with priority access and a fully guided tour, of course!

Meet your expert, English-speaking guide outside the Architecture museum at the Palais de Chaillot on Trocadero Plaza to capture those picture-perfect shots of this Parisian beauty, known as the Dame de Fer. From here, your local expert will navigate your tour group through the crowds and across the Iena Bridge, for even more stunning views of this architectural marvel and its surrounding city. Exciting commentary from your guide will accompany you as you journey across the bridge, preparing you for the awe-inspiring experience awaiting you at the Tower.

With our priority entry you’ll skip straight past the notoriously long lines at the Tower’s ticket desk, so you can spend less time waiting and more time exploring. A short elevator ride will carry you to the dedicated observation desk on the 2nd level. Boasting mesmerizing views of some of Paris’ most notable landmarks including, the Arc de Triomphe, Sacré-Cœur Basilica and Notre Dame Cathedral, this impressive observation deck offers visitors the unique opportunity to explore Paris from above. With group sizes no larger than 26 and audio headsets, you won’t miss a word of your guide’s insightful narration as you explore.


Upgrade your Eiffel Tower guide tour by adding a visit to the Tower’s highest possible access point, the summit! After seeing the city from the second floor, visit the summit (3rd level) at your own pace, as you travel in comfort by elevator to observe the best panoramic views of this exquisite city.

Occasionally, due to situations beyond our control such as inclement weather or other circumstances, the summit may be temporarily closed upon your arrival to the Eiffel Tower. In these rare cases, the group will not be able to access the summit, even if it reopens while we are inside the tower. Should this occur, you will receive a refund for difference in cost of accessing the summit.

Once you’re finished admiring the spectacular views from the summit, you can choose to take the stairs or the elevator back to the ground floor to continue your Parisian adventure!
