Know More about this tour

Join a small group (limited to 20 people) and our entertaining, local city guide at a nearby meeting point. While strolling to the base, hear about the events, techniques and controversies leading to the Towers construction by radical architect Gustave Eiffel. Parisians detested the Tower when it was first erected for the 1889 World's Fair, and it was nearly dismantled soon after! But she withstood the initial bad press, and went on to become one of the worlds bGare de l|est loved structures.

Crowds of visitors arrive from around the world to gaze up in wonder, but youll do better than that as you skip the lines and ascend directly to the second platform to enjoy one of the bGare de l|est views of Paris. Your expert guide will not only point out and comment upon the famous monuments that punctuate the skyline, but also share anecdotes and advice regarding the other sights to see in the capital, such as the Montmartre neighborhood, the Arc de triomphe, the Invalides and Notre Dame.

Your climb continues to the top level of the tower. Peek into Gustaves personal apartment at the summit, or treat yourself to a drink at the champagne bar as you enjoy the endless panorama. Youll never forget this trip!

    Could not hear the guide clearly despite two changes of radio. Switched it off in the end .. she tried very hard to rectify the situation but we were not able to get a clear commentary.

    Martin our guide was great; on time, great commentary; tour was very good and most enjoyable and easy!

    The skip the line Eiffel Tower Tour is a Godsend. There were so many people that if we hadn't been on the tour we'd still be waiting in line to get in. Skip the Line tours are a necessity for seeing the Eiffel Tower. The tours are more expensive but you will save yourself a lot of time.

    The guide was excellent and well informed about the history of the Eiffel Tower and france . Meeting point was easy to find as per the instructions. Overall amazing experience!

    The Eiffel Tower is a must see attraction when in Paris! It was spectacular all lit up. Viator's instructions with regard to redeeming your voucher for an actual ticket were inaccurate at best and misleading. We wasted an hour trying to find a "redemption center" to redeem our ticket when all we had to do was meet the tour group leader who holds all the actual tickets. Very disappointing.

    This was so awesome! Super clear instructions as to where to meet our guide and that went very smoothly. Quality of audio guide units was great and our guide Randa was superb! She had great storytelling ability that drew you into the history of the tour. This tour stood out for me because it included the summit and the tour meant skip the line and then straight to the summit- with the history and stories I parted along the way making lines short work- we got lucky with timing also so had more time at the top. After the guided part was finished we were free to roam the tower and all its levels at our own pace- was perfect for what we were looking for!

    Very knowledgeable guide. Skip the line was worth the cost. Guide stayed with us the whole time and added many, many tidbits about construction, etc. Certainly worth the cost

    Our tour guide, Ferit, was wonderful. Great sense of humor and lots of information. We had beautiful weather and the views are spectacular. No crowds but still right quarters. And, yes elevators!

    When you attempt to visit three countries in 10 days you need skip the line tours and you need people who will show up and once they show up do an exceptional job and this tour met our expectations!!!! Raphel was our tour guide and she was knowledgeable, energetic and prompt. The meeting place was directly across the street from the Eiffel Towel and instructions were clear and concise. There were other tours about a mile from the Eiffel Tower which I would not have been able to do because of disability so this was perfect for me. The tour details also said we would have to go to the Summit on our own but Raphel escorted us up and explained what we were viewing. Highly recommend this tour, you will not regret it.

    We enjoyed this well organised guided tour to the top of the Eiffel Tower. The only down side was the number of other tourists. Luckily we skipped the queues.
