Meeting point

Please meet us outside the Eiffel Tower and don’t pass through any security checks. You will find us outside the South Security Entrance (Entrance #1) of the Eiffel Tower on Allée des Refuzniks, near the trees and the benches. The Allée des Refuzniks is a dirt footpath just outside the Eiffel Tower.

Our team will be wearing orange hats and holding an orange sign that says ExperienceFirst.

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.

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. We offer a 100% refund or the option to reschedule 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.

Are gratuities included?

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.
