The Basics

The Eiffel Tower's first floor features exhibits, kid-friendly experiences, and the 58 Tour Eiffel restaurant; the second deck includes the Jules Verne Restaurant; and the third-floor summit, accessible via a glass lift, features Gustave Eiffel's private apartments and a Champagne bar. Of course, all levels offer striking 360-degree views of the City of Light.

Although a testament to the structure's global popularity, the crowds can be quite large, meaning that priority-access tours are highly recommended—in peak season, long lines mean waits can often exceed three hours. Save precious sightseeing time by booking a skip-the-line Eiffel Tower ticket with or without a tour guide; this experience can combined with a Paris city tour that covers the top sights, such as the Arc de Triomphe, the Notre Dame Cathedral, Moulin Rouge, Montparnasse, and the Louvre museum. If you'd rather view the iconic structure in all its glory than head to the top, book a Seine River cruise, or a walking, biking, or Segway tour.

Fully Guided Luxury Paris Day Trip with Lunch at the Eiffel Tower
It exceeded our expectation, the lunch that was provided in lieu of the Eiffel Tower lunch was more than enough. There was good food, wine flowing, live entertainment and the boat was clean. Our tour guide Anna was very informative and so protective to the group. Excellent !!!!

Eiffel Tower & Dinner Experience with Cruise on the River Seine

Eiffel Tower Dinner Experience & Sightseeing Seine River Cruise
Had a great time, would not hesitate to do this on my next visit to Paris, but if you go around the same time as I did (end of january) wrap up warm. The Dinner in the Eiffel tower was delicious and the cruise on the Seine with all the lights of Paris was worth it too, have to say a big thankyou to the staff of Viator for their organisation and guides.

Skip the Line: Eiffel Tower 2nd Floor Priority Access Ticket with Host
The service is very good. The meeting point is close to the Eiffel Tower. The appointment is some minutes before and in the meantime, walking towards the Eiffel Tower the tourist operator explained to us something about Paris. We went directly to the entrance. The tour was very good and the tour guide was good and kind.

Jean Baptiste was an excellent guide! My ten year old and my husband absolutely loved his detailed account of the history of the tower! They said it was well worth the money! This was an excellent way to experience the Eiffel Tower! Thank you History Tours and Viator!

Guided Day Trip to Paris from London-includes Eiffel Tower, River Cruise, Louvre
I thoroughly appreciated having a guide for our day in Paris. Erlon did a great job explaining all of the sites. We were able to get right through into the Eiffel Tower and the River Cruise was a effective way to view many sites. As mentioned, plan accordingly for meal times as there was lots to see and do. We were able to grab a reasonably priced bite to eat at the Eiffel Tower. This tour was a great way to get a preview of Paris. We'll be back to explore further another time!

Eiffel Tower: 1st and 2nd Floor with Ticket for Summit
The Eiffel tower tour itself was very interesting and it was fun to go up there - even though it was too foggy to see anything from the top. It was impossible trying to find our tour guide. We were given the wrong location on our tickets. He actually spotted us looking lost at the tower. He had no sign showing he was the tour guide. We almost missed the whole thing.

Louvre, Eiffel Tower Lunch

Paris in One Day with Louvre and Eiffel Tower Guided Tour plus Seine Cruise
Our guide through the Louvre was absolutely wonderful. It was raining the entire day, so it was difficult getting from the Louvre to The Eiffel Tower. Our guide had to leave us for another scheduled tour. We had a wait before our scheduled lunch. With all the security and crowds, The Eiffel Tower was not enjoyable compared to years in the past. The lunch at The Tower was wonderful.

Guided Eiffel Tower Tour with Optional Summit Access Upgrade
Blerta explained the history of the Eiffel tower with side stories of tragedy and romance (we went on Valentines Day). She was entertaining and informative.

Things to Know Before You Go

  • Plan your visit in advance and book skip-the-line tickets to avoid long wait times.

  • If you purchase an admission ticket for Eiffel Tower summit access, you'll head straight to the top before stopping at the lower levels on your downward journey.

  • There are ATMs and souvenir shops on the ground floor.

  • The tower's first two levels are wheelchair accessible, but the summit is not.

  • You'll be required to undergo a security screening before entering the tower.

When to Get There

There's no bad time to visit the Eiffel Tower, but summer and the holiday months are especially atmospheric, and night tours afford luminescent panorama views. For a unique experience, coincide your visit with Bastille Day and see the tower illuminated by fireworks.
