Choose an entry time when booking; meet your host near the Eiffel Tower a half hour prior to your scheduled time. 

With your group, stroll the short distance to one of the world's busiest monuments. Bypass the long lines and head straight for the elevators, enjoying speedy and stress-free access to the second floor. Step out with your host to take in some of the best panoramic views in Paris from the viewing platform, 375 feet (114 meters) above the ground. Get a basic orientation to the sights and landmarks visible from your vantage point from your host, then explore the area at your leisure. Snap photos of the Louvre, Les Invalides, Sacré Coeur, and the Champ de Mars, among other standout Parisian highlights. 

After you've had your fill of the second level, proceed to the summit, where you can toast your trip with Champagne from the bar and view Gustave Eiffel's private apartments.

Hello. They cancelled the tour to the summit due to inclement weather. We were told Viator was aware of the situation and that all we needed to do get our refund was email you. I emailed yesterday but havent recieved a response yet either. Looking forward to getting the refund back.

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!

This was the best activity we did in París. The view was so amazing & our tour guide was exceptional. His knowledge & commentary made the walk over & ride up to the second floor very intriguing. Yazid was the BEST!!

Our tour guide was fantastic (Javid or Arvid- the ginger haired tour guide originally from Algeria)! He truly knew his stuff and was excited to share it. The tower itself was somewhat crowded but he was able to truly enhance the experience!!

Waiting in line for hours - great way to catch up with your family!

This tour is listed as "skip the line", which is totally misleading. We arrived on time at the meeting location, which is at least ten minutes walk from the entry to the Eiffel Tower, and from that point, it took us just over an hour of waiting in various lines, to get to the elevators taking us up the tower. If you decide you want to go all the way to the summit, there are even more lines on the 2nd floor you have to wait in - no line skipping what-so-ever. I don't know how these guys get away with egregious false marketing like this.
