Full description
Watch the sunset over Paris from the top of the Eiffel Tower on a small group guided tour, with direct access to the 2nd level.

Your guide will entertain you with anecdotes about the Eiffel Tower’s history and construction, explaining the difficulties Gustave Eiffel encountered to get it built.

Then ascend to the 2nd floor of the tower with your pre-booked ticket, saving valuable time. Marvel at panoramic views of the city at dusk, and see landmark monuments such as the Sacre-Coeur, Notre-Dame and River Seine.

Your guide will tell you about the World Fair, held in Paris in 1889, and its most enduring monument. You are then free to choose if you'd like to go to the tower’s top level, where you can spend as much time as you like before descending on your own.
  • Direct entrance to the Eiffel Tower's first and second levels
  • English-speaking guide

• Please note that you cannot pick up your Eiffel Tower tickets in advance. Please arrive at the meeting point 15 minutes before your scheduled entry time. Please arrive with all members of your party
• Even with direct access, you may have to wait in lines for security and for the elevators. In high season, total wait to access the 2nd floor can be up to 25 minutes.
• For a few days a year, the Eiffel Tower summit or elevators may be closed to the general public due to maintenance or for safety reasons. Apart from possible delays for elevator closures, this will not affect your guided tour, so no refunds or discounts will be given
• It's not possible to predict when the Eiffel Tower will be crowded. In general, long lines are common in the summer, on most weekends, and during peak travel periods throughout the year (e.g. Christmas, Easter, local holidays etc.)
• The tour is not wheelchair accessible and does not include Summit access
