Meet your guide near the base of the Eiffel Tower and start this fascinating adventure through the history of the original Dame de Fer (Iron Lady).
The Eiffel Tower was born a rebel. 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. Gustave Eiffel's great Tower would eventually be his crowning achievement.
Follow your expert, English-speaking guide on a Parisian adventure and discover the Dame de Fer from a spectacular perspective. Save precious time waiting for the elevator and take the challenge to climb the stairs. Your guide will reveal the stories behind her creation, near demise, and glorious rise to the top. The special view from the staircase will give you the opportunity to enjoy every curve from every angle and to understand the beautiful science that keeps her standing. As you climb, your guide will tell you more about the structure and the architectural wonder that made Gustave Eiffel famous. Take a break on the first level where you will get to learn very little-known facts about the Eiffel Tower and its architect thanks to the visitor-friendly cultural path. You will also get to walk on a 57m high glass floor, and take a few shots if you're adventurous enough.
Your guide will then 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, the Champs Elysees, and Notre Dame while enjoying your guide's insightful and entertaining commentary.
