Climb the Eiffel Tower as its creator, Gustave Eiffel, intended. He thought it was the best way to see the tower, and we agree — that’s why we created the world’s first Eiffel Tower Guided Climb. On this immersive tour, your local guide will take you inside the tower and share about its engineering, design, history, and brief notoriety.
Take a break from climbing on the first floor and admire the views, including through the transparent floor below you. There are exhibits here, too, like a piece of the tower’s spiral staircase almost lost to history.
Next, climb to the second level for a stunning panorama of Paris: the Louvre, Notre Dame, Sacré-Cœur in Montmartre, the Grand Palais, the Seine river, and beyond. Your guide can give you recommendations on where to eat on this floor (the macaron bar is popular), and you can also shop for authentic Eiffel Tower souvenirs.
Your guided portion ends here, but if you’ve already selected and paid for the summit upgrade, you’ll continue via glass-walled elevator to the summit. At the summit, peek inside Gustave’s restored private office, with wax figures of Claire, his daughter, and Thomas Edison. Other exhibits show historic maps and even a model of the reddish-brown 1889 summit. Enjoy the views from the indoor and outdoor observation decks, and finish it all off with a drink at the champagne bar.
Return to the esplanade when you’re ready. If you’ve selected our Seine river cruise upgrade, you can proceed to the boat landing to take your cruise right after your climb or go on another day. You’ll have up to a year to use your Seine river cruise ticket.

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!!!Michelle
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.

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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
