Overview

Enjoy the perfect introduction to Paris’s most famous lady on the Direct Access Eiffel Tower Tour. Start the tour at Trocadero Plaza, by far the best vantage point from which to photograph the tower. Follow your guide then, across the Iena Bridge and to the Champ de Mars, listening all the while to the fascinating history of the original “Dame de Fer” (Iron Lady).

This great tour will take you to the second floor of the Eiffel Tower, from where you will enjoy spectacular views of this romantic city. This in-depth tour ensures you will experience the tower in full and from every angle: hear its tumultuous history, photograph it from Trocadero Plaza, and skip the lines to reach the second level observation deck.

After the walking tour, your guide will then accompany you past the ticket line, to ascend in the elevator. On your self-guided visit of the 1st and 2nd floors, you’ll have a chance to enjoy her every curve from every angle and to understand the beautiful science that keeps her standing. Most of her admirers have to wait hours to get the closest of views, but you will avoid the ticket office lines, gaining faster access to her privileged vantage point overlooking the City of Light. Take in iconic sights such as the Louvre, the Arc de Triomphe, the Champs Elysees, and Notre Dame. Take this chance to explore the beauty and history of the Eiffel Tower.

This is the one experience in Paris you cannot miss!
