Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Eiffel Tower, 5 Avenue Anatole France, 75007 Paris France

Your guide will secure tickets for the group and enter the tower for a ride to the 2nd level. From the ground and throughout your visit you will learn about Gustave Eiffel: The Young Engineer, The Entrepreneur, The Great Builder, and Life After The Tower along with the history of Paris during your "Tour From The Sky".

Before you know it you have reached the second level where you will take a walk around the tower and hear little-known fun facts about the tower's original color, twinkling lights and individuals who made history with their daredevil stunts.

Upon arrival at the second level take in the magnificent views of all the sights surrounding you. Get a birds’ eye tour of Paris with your feet far from the ground as your guide tells you about monuments and districts such as Montparnasse, Les Invalides, the Sacre-Coeur, Notre Dame, the Louvre Museum, the Arc de Triomphe and the Champs-Élysées.

After the guided portion of your tour, and if you have purchased the Summit Access option, you will take a lift from the 2nd level up to the summit. Once there, see Gustave Eiffel’s office, restored to its original condition along with panoramic maps. Go to the Champagne Bar and treat yourself to some bubbles in the sky. When you are ready, simply take the elevator back down to the first floor or to street level and continue with your day!

Great tour with a very proactive guide, Sahoud?
The Eiffel Tower was a highlight of our trip, which started 7 weeks ago in Lisbon.

Although the Eiffel Tower was a great place to visit and would certainly do it again, however, I wouldn't use this tour group. Instructions on where to exchange your voucher for a ticket was awful. No real information and where to go. Also, they asked us to be there 1/2 hour before our tour to meet our guide, however, our tour was at 8:45 am and it didn't open until 9:30 am. We were walking around the Eiffel Tower trying to figure out where we exchange the voucher. No one was very helpful. Found other people doing the same thing as us. Had to ask another companies guide what we needed to do, since our guide was only meeting us inside. Does no good, when you can't get in. Once in, no real direction on where to meet your guide. Name on flag in the air was not what was on our voucher. They really need to put together better instructions all around.

Our Eiffel tower guide was Rene and he was very informative and knowledgeable. Overall a good experience, especially since we were too late to book online.

It was very impressive the structure, views we had to see of Paris from the top. Very clean, and tour organized. Our guide was very sweet, knowledgeable and details provided. We enjoyed this tour a lot. The weather was great.

Great tour - really learned some interesting facts and stories - well organized - we were one of the first tours with an 8:30 am start - was not nearly as crowded as it has been - would recommend an early tour over a mid day!

the tour guide was very patient and understanding for those scared of heights. She took the time to explain the various views. At the end of the tour, she directed us as to where we can go do some shopping or spend time till our next event.

Our guide was Lindsay, he was very nice explained well with some pictures showed on us. He even gave us some tips through emails of what are the nice place eat and visits. He did not left us until we ride the Lift to the summit.

We arrived 45 minutes before security opened and was in the non-ticket line as instructed. When security opened, they allowed the ticket lines to go in first and open our line a few minutes later. After meeting our guide inside, then we got in line for the elevators (a very long line). The voucher was also confusing. It said we had to redeem the voucher for the tickets before the tour began so we wasted time the day before trying to get our tickets. That night back at the hotel checking my email, I received one stating that the tour guide has your tickets. Wish I would have known that sooner. I bought this tour because I thought it would same time.

Of course the Eiffel Tower is a must visit when in Paris. This City1Tour was very disorganized. We arrived at 8am for our 8:45am tour.
Security opened a little after 8:30am. Once inside, found our tour but not where we were told to meet. We were divided into groups; and waited. Waited on one line then had to move to a different line and wait. While waiting, announcement came over the speakers saying that the elevator to the second floor was broken. (Some guests decided to leave because they didn’t want to climb the 674 stairs to the second floor.)
We ended up standing in another line to get our tickets.
So basically, our 8:45am “tour “ actually began at 9:50am. We finally reached the summit at 11:40am along with the crowds. Being there when the “doors” opened we should have avoided the crowds. So basically what was supposed to be 2 hours was well over 3 hours.
The waiting in lines and changing to other lines was so disorganized. Plus enduring the heat wave that was plaguing Europe.
So plan accordingly if you book this tour. Plan on some confusion. Or perhaps City1Tours will have things sorted out by then.
