Choose an entry time when booking; meet your host near the Eiffel Tower a half hour prior to your scheduled time. 

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.

I didn’t see the monetary value in what we received. The guide was not informative or helpful either. Do not recommend.

Well worth the experience

This was an awesome tour. I feel that we could have definitely purchased tickets to the Eiffel Tower and go up and enjoy the sight, but having a tour guide, as well as the skip line experience was great. We were able to gain more knowledge about the history of the Eiffel Tower, what makes it unique, how it was received by the Parisian public, and interesting facts like how it's painted and how many shades it's comprised of.

TT(?) & Claudia were excellent. They seemed so excited to show us all there was to see. We loved them & could hardly believe it when they said they were leaving us at the end of the tour. They made us feel as if they’d enjoy hanging out w us all evening. Thank you!

We booked in advance for two tickets that totalled $175 Canadian. We were told to meet at 1045 am, and we arrived at 1047 am. The tour company would not let us attend our tour and made us pay an additional $50 euro to attend a later tour. Poorly handled and they were absolutely rude.

Directions can be a little confusing because meeting point is a little away from the tower

Friendly guide, and patience. Some fun along the tour. Host at the office also friendly. Would recommend it besides that they should be more specific with meeting point.

Great tour but not good customer experience

Martha was a great guide with good stories. We enjoyed this part of the tour. The summit was closed when we arrived so we only got part of our experience. This was not the fault of Viator, but We were disappointed with them because they didn’t automatically refund part of our ticket and I was told I need to contact them. I found this customer service disappointing service in poor form.

We arrived at the meeting point. Nobody was there. We waited for 30 minutes. We are very upset. We paid €124.00 to this company. We request a refund. We feel that we have been scammed by this company.

Wasted money and time

If I bought skip the line ticket by eiffel tower home page much cheaper and If I go without host much quicker because pick up the ticket was 6 minutes walking and after back to the tower with group much slower and wait for everyone pass the security control is wasted time. Never more by viator wasting money and time. And the top was closed aswell
