10. Eiffel Tower Elevator Tour: Optional Summit
Meet your guide by the Eiffel Tower and make the most of your time in Paris with access to the summit of the tower. Your guide will secure tickets for the group and enter the tower for a ride to the second level.
From the ground and throughout your visit, learn about Gustave Eiffel, the young engineer, entrepreneur, great builder, and about his life after the Tower. Hear about the history of Paris during your tour from the sky.
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 90-minute guided portion of your tour, if you have purchased the summit option, you will take a lift up to the summit to 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. Stay and admire the views as long as you like, and then take the elevator back down to the first floor or to street level and continue with your day. If at the moment you receive your tickets the summit is closed, you will receive a partial refund for this portion of the ticket.
Please note that this is not a skip-the-line tour and wait times to enter the Tower can reach 90 minutes or more during peak times.
