  • Eiffel Tower: Second Floor or Summit Direct Access

    1. Eiffel Tower: Second Floor or Summit Direct Access

    Save time at the Eiffel Tower and stay a step ahead of the crowds by choosing a direct access ticket to the second level or summit. Avoid the ticket booth lines at one of the world’s most-visited monuments. Meet the guide and enjoy a historic presentation about the Eiffel Tower. You’ll then be guided through security and inside the elevator as far as the second floor.

    Great experience - the tour guide was really lovely (I can't remember her name, she was petite and just the sweetest ever!!) We recommend going at night - when it lights up its so gorgeous. The only negative, there was absolutely no social distancing. In fact, it was encouraged to get closer. This was a bit stressful for us because we were trying our best to stay distanced (we were doing Covid tests whilst away to be able to come home) So we just would've liked the opportunity for distancing.

    I was not able to purchase any tickets from the official Eiffel Tower website, but had no problem with GYG. The tour was wonderful, easy meeting place to find, helpful friendly and knowledgeable guide. She gave us fascinating information with detail and cheer. Thoroughly enjoyed this tour. What was NOT PRESENTED in the tour information, was that the combined Tower and Seine boat tour are different times. The tower tour took about 1.5 hours (you can stay as long as you like). The boat tour you are on your own, you ticket is good for a year, but there is no information provided when purchasing on this, or the timetables. There are multiple Parisean Bateaux tours!! It's impossible to know which one you are looking for until to speak with the guide. I had multiple tours planned each day, so I was worried if this would fit in, and we only has ONE DAY left, so I wasn't happy about the "surprise" that we had to find our own departure time.
