What to expect

Take some time to get acquainted with Paris' leading lady on this direct access Eiffel Tower tour. You'll take in the stunning views from Trocadéro, stroll through the Paris streets to reach the Eiffel Tower as your guide gives you the history of this iconic monument and enjoy a visit to the Iron Lady herself at your own pace.

Unlike other tours, this one will start at Trocadéro Plaza which is by far the best vantage point to view the Eiffel Tower from. Then you'll follow your guide across the Iena Bridge to the Champs de Mars and hear all about the fascinating history of the original 'Dame de Fer'.

The Eiffel Tower is the most photographed woman in the world but if the critics had their way, she would never have made her debut. Your guide will reveal the stories behind her creation, her near demise and her glorious rise to the top before they accompany you past the ticket line to ascend in the elevator.

On your self-guided visit to the 1st and 2nd floors, you'll have the chance to check out the structure and understand more about the science that keeps her standing. Most of the Eiffel Tower's admirers have to wait hours to get the closest views but you'll avoid the ticket office lines, gaining faster access to this incredible view point overlooking the City of Light. From the dedicated observation deck on the second level, you'll get to admire the marvels that lie at your feet. From here, take in iconic sights such as the Louvre, the Arc de Triomphe, the Champs Elysees and Notre Dame.
