Why take this tour?
You want to scale the Eiffel Tower but don’t want to climb it? Take the elevator! Our guide will tell you all about the tower’s engineering, notoriety, and history as you explore France’s most famous monument.
See the intricate structure of the tower fly by from inside your glass-enclosed elevator. Up on the second floor, your guide will help you discover all there is to see and do here. You can visit the macaron bar, pick up an authentic Eiffel Tower souvenir, spot landmarks like the Sacré-Cœur and Grand Palais, and more
Feel free to ask your guide for ideas on what to see and do during the rest of your stay in Paris. All our guides are locals and love sharing insider tips with guests.
To truly experience the Eiffel Tower, you should ride the elevator to the very top — the 906-foot summit. Your tour of the summit is self-guided, but your guide will let you know what to expect. The summit is subject to last-minute closures for safety reasons. If it closes, we’ll refund the summit upgrade portion of your ticket and ensure you still have an incredible time seeing the Eiffel Tower.

However, rest assured that your guide will keep you entertained and provide insightful information about the Eiffel Tower while you wait in line together.
Are there lockers available before we go up?
No. We recommend leaving luggage at your hotel since Eiffel Tower staff reserves the right to refuse entry to those with extra bags.
Is there food and drink available for purchase during the tour?
Yes, you can purchase food and drink on the first and second levels. Your guide will have recommendations on where to eat.

What is the rescheduling policy?
We understand plans change. We offer a 100% refund or the option to reschedule up to 24 hours prior to your tour start time. Within 24 hours of your tour, we would have incurred hard costs and therefore cannot allow rescheduling or cancellation without costs.
Are gratuities included?
Tips are always appreciated but never expected. They’re a great way to tell your guide they did an awesome job and show your appreciation.
