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!!!

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

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.

FAQs

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?

You’ll avoid the long elevator lines, but everyone waits in the entry line. 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. 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.
