Eiffel Tower Climbing Experience with Guide

Adventure Paris
Enjoy a sensational Eiffel Tower climbing experience with guide in Paris. The 1.5 hour tour shows the Eiffel Tower from a different perspective. Ascend the 704 steps and after the adventurous climb, you'll land on the second floor of Paris's most famous Lady Dame de Fer. If you want to reach the summit by elevator, it is possible to purchase a Summit ticket (at own expense). Choose from one of 2 departure times when you book or upgrade to our Summit options

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. 

You can upgrade this tour with our Summit Tickets option and after touring Paris from the second floor, you will have a free time to go up by lift to the Summit to observe Paris from it's highest panoramic platform. Join the adventure and explore the beauty and history of the Eiffel Tower!

Guided Climb of the Eiffel Tower with Optional Summit Access

Adventure Paris
Avoid the long elevator lines at the Eiffel Tower during a 2-hour adventure and climb the stairs to the 2nd level with an entertaining and knowledgeable guide.  Brag to your friends and join your fellow small group of "warriors" as you ascend 704 steps on foot with your expert guide who will share stories and fun facts about the Tower and surrounding landmarks! The scenery changes and expands around you on a journey that is as spectacular as the destination! The history, the legends, the views, the accomplishment!! Snacks or drinks are available for purchase.

Give yourself enough time to pass through security to meet your guide outside the ground level entrance of the Jules Verne restaurant at the South Leg of the Eiffel Tower. There may be a line to climb the stairs. However, this line is much shorter than the elevator line. Your guide will secure tickets for the group and enter the tower to climb up 704 steps over 30 flights.

During the first leg of your climb you will learn about Gustave Eiffel: The Young Engineer, The Entrepreneur, The Great Builder, and Life After The Tower.

Before you know it you have reached the first level where you will take a walk around the tower and hear little-known fun facts about the tower's original color, twinkling lights and individuals who made history with their daredevil stunts. Stand on the new glass floor, and experience the world of the tower via a multimedia interactive exhibit and short film, if time permits. Grab your free "Follow Gus" activity booklet for family fun, or enjoy a snack or rest before you continue on your way.

Upon arrival at the second level, experience a unique sense of accomplishment, and take in the magnificent views of all the sights surrounding you. Get a birds' eye tour of Paris with your feet far from the ground as your guide tells you about monuments and districts such as Montparnasse, Les Invalides, the Sacre-Coeur, Notre Dame, the Louvre Museum, the Arc de Triomphe and the Champs-Élysées.

At the end of your tour, if you have purchased the Summit Access option, continue your adventure on your own via the lift to the tower's Summit. Once there, see Gustave Eiffel's office, restored to its original condition along with panoramic maps. Go to the Champagne Bar and treat yourself to some bubbles in the sky. When you are ready, simply take the elevator back down to street level and continue with your day!

Hear what others are saying "Walking the steps of the Eiffel Tower was a proud moment for me", "In the elevator I would have missed so much" "The stories made it fun!" "I was scared to try this alone, I loved having the guide" "I would definitely do it again!"

This is the Eiffel Tower experience your friends will envy--the sensation of being inside and outside at the same time, the changing view as you ascend, and memories all the more special for having done it.
