"This was our first time using your services and I was so pleased and will recommend it to anyone and our guide was the best he explained all about the Eiffel Tower and answered any questions that we had, was execellent." - Clara B, United States,


Take some time to get aquainted Paris’s most famous lady on this in-depth Skip the Line Eiffel Tower Tour with 2nd floor observation deck access.

Unlike other operators, you will start the tour at Trocadero Plaza, by far the best vantage point from which to photograph the tower. Follow your guide then, across the Iena Bridge and to the base of the Eiffel Tower, listening all the while to the fascinating history of the original “Dame de Fer” (Iron Lady).

The Eiffel Tower was born a rebel. She’s the most photographed woman in the world but if the critics had their way she would never have made her debut. Big, brash, and strong, she was like nothing anyone had ever seen before. Artists around the country worked tirelessly to stop her construction and then to bring her down but she would defy them all. She’s a surviver; outlasting all of her critics, reinventing herself generation after generation and working her way from outcast to perhaps the world’s greatest icon. It should have come as no surprise - the man behind her made a career of bucking the establishment; and Gustave Eiffel’s great Tower would eventually be his crowning achievement.

On this Skip-the-Line tour of the Eiffel Tower your expert, English-speaking, guide will reveal the stories behind her creation, near demise, and glorious rise to the top. You’ll have a chance to enjoy her every curve from every angle and to understand the beautiful science that keps her standing. Most of her admirers have to wait hours to get the closest of views, but with this Skip the Line Access, you’ll avoid the long general entry queues, gaining faster access to her privileged vantage point overlooking the City of Light.

Your guide will accompany you as far as the second level to the observation deck, from where they’ll point out the marvels that lay at your feet.

You will explore the beauty and history of the Eiffel Tower. Love her or hate her, there’s no doubt that even at over 120 years old, she still knows how to put on a show.

Going up the Eiffel Tower was magnificent! As in every unpredictable group there has to be 1 couple that can't keep their personal family business to themselves! Unfortunately an American couple with a 6 year old! It was an 800pm tour and the mother should have been on an individual child tour. It was a romantic night or it should have been. Granted I am American with older children (20) and (27). The guide Laura was great except this couple kept pushing their son in to interactions with the guide. The guide was gracious of course but soon in turned into a tour focusing on a game with this child. The parents did not seem to intervene to take charge of their own child and be aware that their were others in the group. The guide went as far as to hold the boys hand and move him to the front of the group and walked with him while talking to all of us. Granted the child was well behaved but I don't know what the guide could have done in this situation. The mother kept on promoting her child verbally to engage conversation with the guide such as tell Laura what you did today, when's your birthday and on and on never stopped. The mother was annoying and disrupted our tour. Really it felt like babysitting someone's else's child. We distanced ourselves from the guide and waited for it to be over! I would advise an evening tour to offer one without children for couples like us that are trying to have a romantic evening sans enfants.

This experience was perfect. The booking was easy and the email provided very clear and thorough directions about where and when to meet. They even included pictures! Our guide was friendly and very knowledgeable. (His name was Will). Highly recommend this company. We will use them again and not bother with others.

The tour was great the tour guide was entertaining and knowledgeable. The only thing you need to change is the meeting place description. It should read "meet at the top of the stairs of the entrance to the museum." as there are many sets of stairs in that courtyard.

Thank you for your feedback, don't forget to look at the picture provided to locate the right stairs, it helps.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Question: Do I need to reconfirm my tour?
  • Answer: No, there is no need to reconfirm your tour. Confirmation is firm– your voucher is confirmation that you are booked on the tour. Once you have completed your booking, your voucher will be sent to you via email with all of the details about where to go on the date of your tour at what time. Bring this voucher with you to the meeting point and present it to your guide.

  • Question: Do you offer hotel pick up?
  • Answer: Hotel pick up and drop off are not included, and we do not currently offer this service. Don’t worry though, all of our meeting points are very central and easy to find. By not automatically including pick up and drop off on your tour, we are able to offer you the best price possible for our tours.

  • Question: How many people will be in my group?
  • Answer: Your group can vary from being just you to up to 20-25 people total. There will never be more than 25 people in your group, most of the time under 20.

  • Question: Do we have Skip the Line Access to the top level of the Eiffel Tower?
  • Answer: Unfortunately the Skip the Line Access only applies to the main entrance of the Eiffel Tower, where we get you past long lines that can stretch for hours. When the guide will leave you at the second level observation deck, you will have the ability to buy tickets to 3rd floor from machines (only for  8PM tour, 3rd floor will be closed for 9:45PM tour). There is no existing Skip the Line access for the elevator here - everyone who goes to the summit must wait in the same, general access queue.

  • Question: Why tickets to the summit are not available?
  • Answer: The operator has been forced to react to circumstances out of our control and remove summit access. The Eiffel Tower has severely limited the availability of slots to the summit and those that do secure them will soon be forced to ascend the summit first, then explore the second level. Due to the limited availability our inventory will suffer and we will not be in a position to provide regular slots, unfortunately leading to close outs which we would like to avoid at all costs. We cannot predict the lines for the elevator to the summit (they can be up to 2 hours long) and thus cannot guarantee the high-quality, limited waiting experience that our customers expect. 

  • Question: Can you accommodate customers with wheelchairs?
  • Answer: Unfortunately we are unable to accommodate wheelchair users on any of our tours.

  • Question: What are the opening hours and which days of the year is the Eiffel tower open?
  • Answer:  The Eiffel Tower is open from 9:00 AM to midnight from mid-June to early September, from 9:30 AM to 11:00 PM during the rest of the year. At Easter weekend and during the Spring holidays: extended opening hours to midnight. (Times reflect last admission.)
