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. 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 up to 24 hours prior to your tour start time for this tour. We also offer rescheduling to another date the tour is running at no extra cost if you’re unable to make this tour. Please keep in mind there are no refunds available if you have already rescheduled your tour.
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.
