Experience the magic of Paris from a privileged perspective with direct access to the Eiffel Tower. Meet your guide near the Eiffel Tower to hear stories from the past and present of this famous monument. The guide will then lead you past the ticket line, to ascend to the 2nd floor in the elevator. One of mankind’s engineering marvels, the Eiffel Tower was built for the 1889 World Fair. This iron construction now stands as a proud and much-loved icon of France, and is still the tallest structure in Paris. From the 2nd floor, you'll be able to marvel at panoramic views of the city, and find landmarks such as the Sacre-Coeur, Notre-Dame and the River Seine.

      It was an extremely entertaining experience, with very good, funny comments from Laetizia. We also had an upgrade to the top, which we couldn't book due to the corona. A wonderful experience. The Eiffel Tower and the whole city are also wonderfully sparsely populated, unusual and strange, but of course very beautiful for us!

      Nice to be assured of access to the Eiffel Tower in advance, and with a tour that was well organised. A very friendly good English speaking guide, with nice and good information about Paris (view points from the Eiffel Tower), and about the history of the Eiffel Tower itself.

      ***25 Juli 2021*** We booked this tour 1 day prior to visit. Due to this short time we had some concerns that reservations would maybe not be confirmed upfront but eventually all turned out fine and we had a splendid tour! Meeting point was easily found at just a few minutes walk from Tour Eiffel itself. We were guided in English language by former inhabitant of Paris Mr. Pepe who turned out to be very knowledgeable and above all very patient, understandable and clear also for our kids 8yrs and 12 yrs old. Thank you!
