Summit upgrade

The Eiffel Tower summit features a champagne bar, stellar views, and Gustave Eiffel’s private office, but it’s subject to last-minute closure. If it closes, we’ll refund that portion of your ticket and ensure you still have a great time at the Eiffel Tower.

Seine river cruise upgrade

Your guide will give you your Seine cruise ticket and tell you how to find the boat. Your ticket is good for a one-hour cruise, audio guide included, anytime within a year from your tour date.


This tour is accessible for foldable strollers. For wheelchairs, the tour is accessible to the second level only, not the summit.

Tour ending point

Your tour ends on the second level or, if you’ve selected the upgrade, at the summit. You can walk or take the elevator back down whenever you’re ready.

Refund policy

We offer a 100% refund up to 24 hours prior to the tour start time.

Will we have to wait in line?

Your guide will take care of ticket purchases and streamline the entry process, but there’s still a line to get into the attraction. In peak season, this could be 45-90 minutes. Luckily, your guide will keep you entertained to help the time fly by.

Are there lockers available before we go up?

No. We recommend leaving luggage at your hotel since Eiffel Tower staff reserves the right to refuse entry to those with extra bags.

Is there food and drink available for purchase during the tour?

Yes, you can purchase food and drink on the first and second levels. Your guide will have recommendations on where to eat.

Is this tour included with a pass?

Yes! If you have a pass, enjoy this tour for free by selecting your pass and following the instructions on our Paris passes page. Your guide will confirm your pass at check-in.

What if it rains?

Our tours run rain or shine. Please check the local forecast and plan accordingly. In rare instances when we have to cancel for extreme weather, we’ll offer you the chance to reschedule or a refund.

What is the rescheduling policy?

We understand plans change. You can always change your tour 24 hours or more before you tour. We offer a 100% refund up to 24 hours prior to your tour start time. Within 24 hours of your tour, we would have incurred hard costs and therefore cannot allow rescheduling or cancellation without costs.

What about gratuities?

Tips are always appreciated but never expected. They’re a great way to tell your guide they did an awesome job and show your appreciation.
