Enjoy a quick orientation tour with your host before wandering around the first and second viewing platforms at your leisure.

Don't miss the transparent glass floor for a thrilling experience that will make you feel like stepping into the void!

Upgrade your experience by climbing up to the summit of the Eiffel Tower! The top floor is 900 feet up in the air and has even more striking views to offer as much during the day as during the evening. It's also home to Gustave Eiffel's private apartment and a charming Champagne bar.

Frequently Asked Question:

Q: Is it necessary to buy entry tickets to the Eiffel Tower online in advance or can we just buy tickets at the door on the day? We only have a few days in Paris and I heard there can be long lines of people waiting to get in.

A: We advise you to buy your tickets in advance for this Paris attraction. The Eiffel Tower is the no.1 most visited tourist attraction in Paris and is the most popular tourist attractions in France with more than 7 millions visitors per year. There are often very long queues to get into the attraction (between 1 to 3 hours) at entrances that deal with ticket purchases at the door.

If you have a short time in Paris do you really want to spend your holiday time in a crowd of people in line waiting for one to three hours or more?

If you want to avoid the queues then it is advisable to pre-book your entrance tickets to the Eiffel Tower.

Q: If i have booked a tour with the option 2nd level of the Eiffel Tower because only this one was available with the skip the line, can i buy a ticket to go to the summit on spot?

A: Yes of course, it will be an additional cost of 6 euros per person to pay directly at the ticket booth on the 2nd level.

We got a pretty good deal (at short notice) to see ALL floors of the Eiffel Tower. The guide (Adrian?) was funny, lead us to the 2...nd floor via the short lines and provided us with some quick info about the tower. So far, so good, but then it got even better: we were indeed free to check out all floors for as long as we wanted to, just on our own with no one stressing us around or anything like that. Highly recommended. more


Great experience, best offer for the tour, really great tour guide!


No line entrance to the Eiffel Tower!!! I felt so bad for the people waiting in the line as we were passing in front of every one.... A must-do in Paris!! more


Didn't have to wait at all: worth a penny!


This was my 2nd time up to the Eiffel Tower, but 1st time for my wife. She was completely amazed. Same way for the 3rd time!


Great service


Well Organized No waiting time, it was worth it.


Had a fantastic time at the Eiffel Tower, everything went smoothly, the whole process of getting in and up to the summit was very ...well organized! Definitely worth to pay a bit more.


Amazing, the views were breathtaking!


It's s great to bypass the line. Felt bad for those watching us go by, but that's what you pay for. Our tour guide was... friendly and funny. Very interesting to listen to. Picked up a few tips for sightseeing elsewhere in Paris. Total freedom to do what you like. Not too lengthy and and you anyways feel like you're not rushed or being held back. Great experience. Thank you. more


The tour guide was on time at the meeting point, which was just next to the Eiffel Tower. We skipped the line at the Eiffel Tower ...and went strait inside to take the elevator to the second floor. There, the guide explained some interesting facts and figures about the Eiffel Tower and showed us where to take the elevator to the summit. We were free to stay as long as we wanted after that and stayed for 3 hours actually! There is so much to see at the three floors of the Eiffel Tower!
During winter there is a free skating rink on the first floor, just make sure to bring gloves!


The tour started punctually at 4pm and it was the perfect time because we were able to see the most beautiful sunset over Paris as... well as the Eiffel Tower and the city illuminated. We didn't have to wait, our guide was very friendly and informative, and I really enjoy spending some time on my own. Definitely a must-do in Paris! more


I have a problem with an e mail , but I call to your company and resolved . The guide was amazing .


We loved it. The host was really nice and interesting, he gaves us tips about Paris! We just have wait for the security check, it ...was very fast, and we spent a long time on the Eiffel Tower before leaving, we are happy that we did it, a must do!! Thanks again. more


We would recommend this tour to anyone who want to go up Eiffel Tower.
Our tour guide was very knowledgeable.


Great tour guide..very informative. I think it makes the visit much more interesting. Recommended!


It was a wonderful experience, the guide Celine was very nice, we skip the lines to go directly to the tower, going through the se...curity check, it was very fast. The view was amazing from the 2nd floor, we had a great time as well at the ice skating rink on the 1st floor, it was amazing to do this on the eiffel tower! Thanks more


Wonderful tour , wonderful service...it's a must


The whole tour was fantastic and our guide Celine was very sympatic and professional. I'll bookmark your site and reuse it as... soon as possible. more




Our host was very knowledgeable and we enjoyed the tour alot.


The guide was excellent, definitely worth the money.




Very knowledgeable and efficient
Save us waiting in very long queues
Highly recommend


Well organized and very great way to see the Eiffel Tower. I recommend this ticket to anyone who has kids and doesn't want to... wait it line with them. more


It was great we thought we were just skipping the line but a guide came with us to the second floor and gave us history about the ...tower this was great and unexpected so well worth it more


Very Nice tour.


Our guide Adrian was very informative and funny in his commentary and as we had a mixed bunch of nationalities he was able to comm...unicate with everyone. He involved everyone and made the tour very enjoyable more


We had difficulty finding the meeting place but made it with 4 mins to spare. So my advice is leave plenty of time. Loved the t...our, well presented and informative. Even my 5 year old learnt a thing or 2. Would recommend not only for the queue skip but also knowledge. We were then left to view at leisure. There was no time limit. Just shame the weather was bad so we didnt get a good view more


Reese ( Belgian guy) was very very knowledgeable and kind!


The staff at City Discovery was very helpful, they tried so hard to book the activity we wanted, afortunately there was space for ...that and enjoyed it very much, it's is our second time that we book through them and we recommend it a lot! more


Great tour! Great service!

It was easy to locate the meeting point & our guide Estelle was great. She had lots of knowledge & was also funny. Loved t...he tour. more


very well organized and amazing guides!


Great tour


Awesome !!


Our guide arrived in good time, was a good communicator and provided good group leadership and entertainment. A memory for life.


Amazing! Would highly recommend this. Totally skipped the lines which were very long and at a great price. Must do!


Everything was as promised. Great to beat the long lines.


Perfect! Our tour started at 13:00. We could skip allt the lines and already 13:25 we were at level 2 in the Eiffel Tower.


Despite it being a skip the line passes there was still an extremely long wait to queue going through security. This has been a ch...ange since the terror attacks however and although frustrating and could have been better organised it didn't seem to be the fault of our guide. The service was very good. Our guide was excellent. Professional, knowledgeable and fluent in English French and Spanish. more


Very light hearted and fun guide.


Was great


Very light hearted and fun guide.


Adrian our host,really made the tour for us,very happy and entertaining,reassured any nerves we had,his great,thank you xx


Tais was very nice and she answered all our questions with a great smile.


So very special to be at the top and seeing all of Paris. Refreshment etc is (as expected) expensive - but a glass of champers at ...the top is lovely and decadent! Be prepared for the q for the summit. more


The tour was great. Most of our group went all the way to the top. They said it was an awesome view of the city.


Wonderful experience!
It was foolish of me to reach at the meeting point 20 min early and I was in little bit of panic as I...
was not able to see others. The lady came exactly on time and handed over the tickets. Saved at least 2 hours from the two huge queues while entering the Eiffel Tower. Enjoyed the Guide as well. She was very nice and jolly. Loved it and I recommend it all! more


It was wonderful.


Very well organized


You cannot visit Paris without visiting this most iconic landmark. And it doesn't disappoint. Amazing views of this wonderful... city. And the tower itself is fascinating. The tour was so informative, and of course we didn't have to queue. more


Best experience ever!! We had enjoyed it very much. We'll never forget, I really recommend this to anyone

Reuben Schembri

The Eiffel Tower queue is notorious. I was glad to be able to just walk past the huge lines and get straight in. The Tower itself ...is amazing with incredible views over all of Paris. I highly recommend getting this ticket! more


It was great to skip the line and go to the 2nd floor ahead of everybody else! The guide gave us some interesting information abou...t the tower, so it was an additional bonus to the priority entry ticket. After the introduction we could stay on the tower as long as we wanted and go up to the summit at our own pace. Would recommend this service! more


Our guide was at the meeting point near the Eiffel Tower and accompanied us to the 2nd floor. We were able to visit by our own the... 3rd floor. We had a nice visit and avoided the long line to access to the Tower !


Our host was very knowledgeable, he gaves us a lot of insights about Paris and the history of the Eiffel Tower. It was easy to fin...d the meeting point and skipping the long lines during the week end has been great to win time to do other things during our stay in Paris! Thank you more

The tour took place exactly at the appointed time and we found the guide easily as guidelines. We recommend it because the lines t...o buy and acess the Tower are really huge. more

Leandro Cássio

We had a wonderful time at the Eiffel Tower even if the weather was not so good in Paris. The host was really helpful and interest...ing, he gaves us a lot of tips about Paris and all the monuments to see from the 2nd floor. We spent a lot of time going around, and the ice rink on the 1st floor was an amazing experience! Thanks again, we will recommend it for sure. more




Very good to skip the line and avoid waiting, got some usefull info ....


This service saved us a lot of time and made access to the Eiffel Tower very easy.


Agent was prompt and helpful.


La guide a été super


The guide was informational and interesting. Our reason for doing it was to avoid lines and it worked out very well for us. You ...still must go through security, but we were through very quickly. more


We could not make in time for our tour and thought we had missed it, but the staff were helpful and accomodating and managed to ge...t us in the next tour, highlyrecommend to book ET tickets in advance with City discovery!
Thank you again!



Not very crowded the Sunday Sept. 2nd but it was nice to even skip a short line. We were told in advance we would have to wait in... line for the summit elevator which can't be avoided. Very personable and amusing guide (Adrian)! Some confusion on the meeting spot because the number on the building is hard to see. If you go to Paris go to the Eiffel tower summit. more


It's an easy way to get to the tower. We had difficulty finding 225 rue de luniversite as we thought it was a centre rather... than just a meeting place .there were other people there who had same difficulty so it may be useful to make that more explicit when booking . Tais was welcoming and pleasant


Skipping the long queues was great. The explanations by our guide was good.


Tour guide was charming and informative. Only thing I would change is to make description clearer that you take elevator to 2nd f...loor, guide explains sites, then you have option to buy 6E ticket to top 3rd level, or to take elevator back down, stopping at 1st floor on the way if you like. I got confused with word "climb" in description, and thought stairs were involved. No stairs are required. Enjoyed it! more


A bit short. Bur Dries die an excellent job!


The Eiffel Tower is stunning, the tour wasn't so much. The advance booking process was good with polite conversation. When w...e arrived however, the two gentlemen weren't in the 'uniform' the email advises you to look for, there was no organisation, nor particularly polite. We stood in a queue for bag checking for an hour before another queue for scanning/further bag checks. When you get to the second floor (2 hours later at this point), everyone who is going to the summit just wants their ticket, yet you have to wait with a huge group trying to hear a speech/guide before queueing again to get tickets to the top (where there's another hours queue). Visiting the attraction was an amazing experience, it simply felt hindered by the lack of organisation holding you back. Although we did queue for many hours, we did skip a 3-4 hour queue for tickets! I would definitely recommend pre-booking...just expect to hang around for some time while they try to organise or lose the group entirely! more


Good place to visite.
