Summary of The Day: The Eiffel Tower was born a rebel. She's the most photographed woman in the world but if the critics had their way she would never have made her debut. Big, brash, and strong, she was like nothing anyone had ever seen before. Artists around the country worked tirelessly to stop her construction and then to bring her down but she would defy them all. She's a survivor; outlasting all of her critics, reinventing herself generation after generation and working her way from outcast to perhaps the world’s greatest icon. It should have come as no surprise - the man behind her made a career of bucking the establishment; and Gustave Eiffel’s great Tower would eventually be his crowning achievement.
On this special access tour of the Eiffel Tower your expert, English-speaking, guide will reveal the stories behind her creation, near demise, and glorious rise to the top. 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 with our special access, you’ll avoid the long general entry queues, gaining faster access to her privileged vantage point overlooking the City of Light.
Unlike other operators, we start our tour at Trocadero Plaza, by far the best vantage point from which to photograph the tower.
Follow your guide across the Iena Bridge and to the base of the Eiffel Tower, listening all the while to the fascinating history of the original Dame de Fer, or Iron Lady.
Your guide will accompany you to the dedicated observation deck on the second level, from where they will point out the marvels that lay at your feet. From here, take in iconic sights such as the Arc de Triomphe, Champs Elysees, and Notre Dame while enjoying your guide's insightful and entertaining commentary. After touring Paris from above, you will have the opportunity to buy a ticket to the summit if you so wish.
Join us as we explore the beauty and history of the Eiffel Tower. Love her or hate her, there's no doubt that even at over 120 years old, she still knows how to put on a show.
This service ends at the second floor of the Eiffel Tower. Once on the second floor you are free to purchase a ticket which allows you to ascend to the summit in your own time. Please note there is a line for the elevator to the summit.
