We had an amazing time climbing the Eiffel Tower. Kamila, our tour guide, was knowledgeable, fun and entertaining. While it says its 700 plus steps, it's not as hard as you think it's going to be and well worth the pain!!! You climb at your own speed and rest in between levels. The views from the top are SPECTACULAR!!!

Awesome experience
Out tour guide was excellent! She was very knowledgeable, friendly, patient, and experienced. She made us feel very comfortable and we enjoyed the tour very much!

A worthwhile undertaking!
Very clear and informative details provided by our competent and very friendly tour guide Sara. She also provided additional tips on other activities beyond the tour.

Best Guide Ever
Sara was our guide and I cannot talk highly enough of her. She knew her history but she also knew how to connect with all her tour group. She was especially good with my teenagers and held their interest for the whole tour. It was very cold at the second level at early morning and she moved us into the sun to help warm us up. She gave us lots of information plus lots of recommendations for where to eat, how to get around (especially in the metro strike where we had to use buses) and then took a group photo and sent it to us.

Meeting point

Meet the ground team from ExperienceFoundry outside the Eiffel Tower and don’t pass through any security checks. You will find them 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.

The ground team representatives from ExperienceFoundry will be wearing orange hats and holding orange signs that say ExperienceFirst or ExperienceFoundry.

When should I get there?

Plan to be there 30 minutes early. The tour starts promptly, and you may not be able to catch up if you arrive late.

What happens if the summit closes?

If you’ve booked the summit upgrade but the summit is closed when you receive your tickets from your tour guide, the summit portion of your tour will be refunded, and you’ll still enjoy a guided climb ot the second floor. Please note that it’s not possible to cancel your reservation due to summit closure. The summit may be closed by Eiffel Tower staff for maintenance, weather, safety, and more, and this is unfortunately beyond our control.

How does the Seine cruise upgrade work?

Your guide will give you instructions on where to find the boat. Your ticket is good for a one-hour cruise along the Seine anytime within one year of the date of your tour. Make sure to arrive on time for your Eiffel Tower tour to receive your boat tickets — if you miss your tour, you won’t be able to pick up your cruise tickets.

How much climbing is there?

It’s about 700 steps to reach the second level. We climb at a comfortable, moderate pace, and there’s a break halfway through on the first floor. If mobility is a concern, we recommend our Eiffel Tower Tour by Elevator.

Will we have to wait in line?

In peak season, the line to get into the Eiffel Tower can be 45-90 minutes or more. Don’t worry — 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. Foldable strollers also aren’t allowed on the climb.

Is there food and drink available during the tour?

Yes, you can purchase food and drink on the first and second levels, and there are restrooms here as well. 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.
