Meet your host near the Eiffel Tower, just 30 minutes before your chosen entry time. When your small group is ready, you’ll stroll the short distance to the tower as your guide gives the lowdown on the landmark. Then, this 1-hour tour will offer you fast and easy entry to one of the city’s most visited attractions plus all the essential Eiffel Tower info you need.
Bypass the lines, step inside the elevator with your guide, and speed straight up to the second level. Towering some 375 feet (114 meters) above the ground, this level is said to offer the finest panoramic views in Paris.
Enjoy a quick orientation with your host, and then wander around the first and second viewing platforms at your leisure. Gaze out over the Champ de Mars — a quintessential Eiffel Tower sight — and stroll around the walkways for up-in-the-air views of Les Invalides, the Louvre Museum, Notre Dame Cathedral, Sacré Coeur, and more.
Please note: Summit access is not included on this tour. You will not be able to purchase a ticket on the second level to head up on your own.

Great way to see the Eiffel Tower and bypass long, long lines. Going to the second floor was quick and you could see all of Paris from walking around the tower.
We arrived at the meeting point quite early as i am like this for anything i do so i always give plenty of time just incase we couldn't find it our tour guide JC he was very informative and he's a very happy chap its definitely worth getting the priority tickets and i would do the same again well done guys
Met up at the designated meeting spot prior to going to the Eiffel Tower security check point as a large group. As soon as we cleared the first security check point we separated into 2 smaller groups. Went at 9PM and waited in the queue for less than 20 minutes. Went through an additional security check point before going up the elevator to the second floor. Beautiful view at night with lights flashing on the Eiffel Tower for 5 minutes every hour. Free to go on your own after stepping off the elevator or stay with the tour guide to hear about the history of the Eiffel Tower and Paris. Worth paying a little more to skip the line and not wait as long as those who do not have a ticket ahead of time.
If visiting Paris at a busy tourist time (which seems like all the time now) this tour will save you hours in line. Also, a wonderful and knowledgeable tour guide.
We had a lovely evening tour with guide Kenza. We were in Paris at a very busy time and the priority access was worth the money. Note that the meeting spot is a few blocks' walk from the tower. We got to the tower just before 9pm, when the lights came on, and then we enjoyed breathtaking nighttime views from the second floor.
Martin was a great guide, enthusiastic and knowledgeable making the experience unforgettable. Recommended.
Great tour with a great host! Her name was Flor from Mexico City, MX and we totally enjoyed her and her knowledge of the tower. Meeting at the History Group is a bit confusing because even though you have vouchers for your tickets you still have to go in and get updated access tickets and a sticker to confirm your participation in a particular group going on a tour. Overall, great though as the lines are horrible at the Eiffel Tour!
We were part of a group of about 20 people. Our guide, Igor, was very humorous (I would say, witty) and knowledgeable. We reported at their office (about 7 minutes from the Eiffel tower, easy to locate) ahead of time, the staff were very friendly, and gave us a warm welcome. The tour started from the office, as Igor started his talks. Security check-in was smooth, we didn't have to wait long for the elevator either. On reaching the second floor, Igor continued his talks, showed us the key attractions from the top, and answered to all our questions. It was a great experience.
What didn't go in our favor is the timing. By the time we booked this tour, the tickets for earlier slots were all sold out, and we managed to grab the 9:30pm slot only. It was dark, quite cold and windy at the top, and even though we wanted to stay some more time after the guided tour ended (you are allowed to stay longer), we had to cut short. So if you are taking this tour, try to book for an earlier slot.
One more thought - due to the huge crowd and the wind, it was often not easy to follow what Igor was saying. Would have been good if there were radio head sets provided (not sure if there are restrictions imposed by Tower authorities).
The reservation said to be 10 min early to meeting point and we left 15 minutes after our reservation. It was a big group and the tour guide tried to give the explanation loud enough but it was useless.
The day was rainy, foggy and cold. The views, as a result, were very poor. To make matters worse, the Viator Tours office where we were told to meet was very unaccommodating. There was no restroom facilities and most of the people behind the counter were not very nice. Our tour guide, however, was very good and tried to make the best of the situation. The lines for the WC at the Eiffel tower were very long and we had to keep up with our group.
