Know More about this tourMeet your guide in front of the Eiffel Tower to begin your 2-hour behind-the-scenes walking tour of one of the world’s most recognizable landmarks, originally built for the 1889 World’s Fair. Your actor-guide draws you into the romantic story of a young American woman named Lemony and a French aviator named Antonin who fall in love at the Eiffel Tower.
Learn about the history of Paris and the tower through the adventures of the two characters as you see intriguing parts of the tower that many visitors don’t even know about. Descend into the military bunker located beneath the Champ de Mars, the large open space adjacent to the tower. As you’ll learn, the tower once housed military communications equipment, and the bunker and its complex network of secret tunnels were created during World War I to serve as a vital evacuation route.
Continue your tour above ground at the Eiffel Tower’s engine room, viewing the equipment that powers the hydraulic lifts. Next, skip the line at those elevators and ascend to the 380-foot (116-meter) second floor of the tower with your guide. Head up to the rooftop of Michelin-starred Le Jules Verne restaurant to take in the spectacular views of Paris as your guide concludes his story with heroine Lemony’s 100th birthday.
Your theatrical tour of the Eiffel Tower ends on the second-floor observation deck, where you can linger as long as you wish or buy a ticket to the third level of the Eiffel Tower (own expense) for even more dramatic views from 906 feet (276 meters) in the air.
