Why take this tour?

  1. We offer an elevator tour of the Eiffel Tower, too, but if you had us pick our favorite, we’d choose this one. Why? You get to experience this monument best by seeing it from the inside as you climb. It’s immersive, engaging, surprising.
  2. Don’t take our word for it — French engineer Gustave Eiffel believed it was the best way to see his creation. That’s what led us to create the world’s first guided climbing tour of the Eiffel Tower.
  3. Every tour is led by a local who’s an expert on the tower and things to do in Paris, so bring your questions. Our guides love sharing tips on what to do at the tower (like trying the macaron bar on the second level or champagne at the summit), and they’re happy to give recommendations on how to enjoy the rest of your time in Paris.
  4. The views from the second floor are incredible. It’s 377 feet off the ground, but it’s not the height that’s impressive. It’s the panorama of Paris — the Sacré-Cœur, Arc de Triomphe, Montparnasse Tower, the Seine, and more. Seeing all these landmarks from above is a great way to kick off your tour of Paris!
  5. Visiting the summit is the ultimate Eiffel Tower experience. You even get to see Gustave Eiffel’s private office! Your visit to the summit is self-guided, but your guide has tips for what to see. However, 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.

Meeting point

Meet the ground team from ExperienceFoundry outside the Eiffel Tower and don’t pass through any security checks. You will find them outside the South Security Entrance (Entrance #1) of the Eiffel Tower on Allée des Refuzniks, near the trees and the benches. The Allée des Refuzniks is a dirt footpath just outside the Eiffel Tower.

The ground team representatives from ExperienceFoundry will be wearing orange hats and holding orange signs that say ExperienceFirst or ExperienceFoundry.
