The wrought-iron lattice tower is 324 metres tall, making it the tallest structure in the city. Admire breathtaking views of the City of Lights from the 2nd-floor observation deck and the summit.

At the ground esplanade get a close peek at the immense architectural prowess on display from underneath the Eiffel Tower. Then, meet your guide and ascend in the elevator to the 2nd-floor observation deck. Hear about the history of the tower, from its construction in 1889 to the most iconic symbol of Paris.

Then, follow your guide to another elevator up to the summit of the tower to marvel at the skyline of Paris from above. Look out for monuments such as the Sacre-Coeur Basilica, Notre Dame Cathedral, and Pont Neuf.

      An absolutely great guide and if you want to go up the Eiffel Tower, absolutely recommendable. In general, you can save yourself the Eiffel Tower, the view is similar to an airplane, you stand in line for ages and with a guide you go worlds faster. The stairs to the Arc d Triumphe are much more worthwhile, more stairs, shorter queuing times and worlds better views.
