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.

      Traveler Tips

      Just remember to arrive about 20 minutes before scheduled time and all attractions have security checks, so travel light.
      Queues can get a bit long but worth the (not too long) wait
      It can get a little scary but I would only say, don't look down.

      Too long lines
      Jennifer_I, Jun 2023
      This was marketed as “skip the line” but we waited well over an hour to get onto the first elevator.
      Promise but no delivery.
      Alice_S, Jun 2023
      Late to start. The threat to close down the upper elevators eliminated the history of the tower didn’t get to top but waited in line for over an hour. Poor showing. Want money back for not seeing the summer.
      Skip line is a must! Very helpful guide
      monika_V, Jun 2023
      The line skip really works great! The guide explained the security check to insure it goes quickly. We were then lead to the lifts and while we waited he gave a few interesting facts about the tower to entertain us. After going to the second floor the guide talked a few minutes, showed pictures of the events he was explaining. You can skip this if you want, but I would advise to stay and listen. Definitely worth the asking price

      The tour company was well organized and did a nice job of guiding us smoothly through the myriad of waiting lines. Our guide was informative and fun.

      Enjoyed going up to the summit and viewing the city from above. We got a lot of great pictures! Definitely an amazing experience!
      Excellent Eiffel Tower Tour with Vildan and Ricardo
      Teshia_J, May 2023
      We thoroughly enjoyed our Skip the Line Eiffel Tower tour with Vildan and Ricardo. They were engaging and knowledgeable. Convenient and easy meeting place. Personally I’m not sure the view from the summit is worth the line to access it. The view from the second level on a clear is excellent.
      Over priced not worth it
      Tracy_M, May 2023
      View was amazing, great experience. The skip the queue was a waste of money, still queued for a long time
      Disappointed in lack of refund.....or even partial....
      Melissa_D, May 2023
      I would have loved to provide a positive feedback, however, due to my whole trip being cancelled to Europe a month prior(out of my control), we were not able to use our already booked tickets. Not even able to get a portion of our money back. Unfortunately, the cancellation was completely out of my hands. I had booked with this company before and had a great experience. I figured I would book again and it would be the same but it wasn't at all. I contacted the company once I knew my travel wasn't happening in the hopes that I could get a refund, however, the company was not allowing a refund but would still be able to re-sell two tickets and make double since I was not able to attend.
      Thoroughly recommend this tour
      Jewel_S, May 2023
      The view was amazing. Only about a 20min wait to get on the lift, as opposed to 3 ➕️ hrs just in the ticket line if you hadn't pre purchased. Our host Catalina made the experience so much better, she was fun & knowledgeable (not at all boring).
      Eiffel Tower skip the line
      Rosanna_B, May 2023
      Our tour guide for the Eiffel Tower was very friendly and knowledgeable. He made our visit a very memorable experience. We highly recommend Viator.
      The tour was overpriced
      natalia_u, May 2023
      Nice views from the tour and an opportunity to take pictures. However, the tour was overpriced. Though we were supposed to have skip the lines, the wait was still long. The guide was speaking less the 10 minutes. The rest of the time was waiting and walking around by ourselves. The tour was not worth over$100 so the advice is to buy your ticket by the tower if any are available. The tower from outside doesn't look any special. An old huge piece of metal. It needs more renovation and beautification.
      Made it to the top!
      Phyllis_E, May 2023
      The area getting in to the Eiffel Tower is chaos. I was so glad to have a guide to help me through it. My guides (Maddy & Santiago) were friendly and knowledgeable. It was a great time!!
      Easy trip to Eiffel Tower
      Amy_T, May 2023
      This is really a skip the line tour. We accessed all levels of the tower easily. Our guide was knowledgeable and fun. Simple and easy tour!
      Would definitely recommend to skip the extremely long ticket line
      Carolina_G, May 2023
      Excellent tour guides they were both very friendly, informative and made it fun. It was such an easy and smooth experience.
      Makes it easier but not sure worth the money
      PENNY_R, May 2023
      Our guide was quite nice and made getting up the tower much easier -but didn’t really give a lot of useful information. Seemed rather short for the price. But she herself was delightful.
      It was good to skip the lines
      Stuart_H, May 2023
      Skipping lines and a bit of info was good. I don't think it was worth the extra money for what we received beyond access and skipping some of the lines.
      Having a great time with Catalina
      ChristianIndra_R, May 2023
      Good start with the very welcoming receptionist at the counter, it goes better with the perfectly knowledgeable guide, Catalina, who are very energetic and providing exciting information about the tour. Highly Recommended!
      It was ok
      Robert_C, May 2023
      The guide only spoke about the Tower for less than 5 mins, and though it was advertised as "skip the line" we still waiting for 40 mins.
      Only way to go!
      Jeanne_P, May 2023
      It’s worth going with a group so u don’t have to wait in a long line to get tickets! Good information regarding the Eiffel Tower and it’s history!
      Ronnie_B, May 2023
      BRUNO WAS THE BEST TOUR GUIDE! We enjoyed his company and listening to the history of the Eiffel Tower.
