Have you always dreamt of seeing Paris from a bird’s eye view? If you welcome to opportunity to ascend above the city skyline for a breathtaking experience, what better way to do so than from the icon of Paris itself, the Eiffel Tower! The 360° viewing deck on the Eiffel Tower is second to none; on clear days, you will have the chance to see for miles in every direction. And because Paris is a rather short city (the majority of buildings don’t surpass the seventh floor) you can appreciate every other major monument. That’s quite a feat for one of the world’s most visited urban centers.

Is there a reduced price for kids/students/infants/seniors?
All entrance tickets for our Tower offerings are with adult tickets and therefore there are no reductions. Infants (ages 0 – 3) are, however, free of cost on all Tower activities.
Can we eat on the Eiffel Tower after the tour?
Absolutely! There are a few options if you are looking to eat on the Eiffel Tower. There are two restaurants on the Tower which require reservations: the 58 Eiffel, located on the first floor, and the Michelin-starred Jules Verne on the second floor. Reservations need to be made well in advance in the summer months, so please plan accordingly! If you are looking for something more casual, there are cafés and snack stands on the first and second level of the Eiffel Tower serving a variety of sandwiches and soft drinks. It is also possible to bring your own food on the Tower, but please note that glass containers and knives are prohibited.
What is the structure of the tour? How long will it take in total?
Your guide will take you from our office to the Eiffel Tower where you will skip the lines to the second floor. Once there you will visit each side of the Tower learning about the monuments you can see and the history of Paris. You should allow at least 2 hours in your day for this visit.
