Our insider tips

Avoid the queues

As you know, Paris is quite the popular holiday destination. Plan ahead if you want to jump around and see the Eiffel Tower from lots of angles. It's easy to buy tickets online and go straight to the top -- but if you're looking to do Paris on the cheap, remember to plan waiting time at major monuments into your itinerary.

Watch your stuff

Lots of travelers are looking for a cafe or restaurant nearby these views, where they can relax and regroup away from the crowds. While all the major tourist areas are safe enough, tourists tend to let their guard down as soon as they order a café au lait. As always, zip up your purse and watch out for thieves.

Opening hours

If you decide to get up close and personal with the Tower itself, it's conveniently open 365 days a year. From mid-June to early September, opening hours are from 9:00AM to midnight. During the rest of the year, from 9:30AM to 11:00PM.

Skip the Line Eiffel Tower Ticket + River Cruise Reviewed by a GetYourGuide customer, 01/07/2019

Amazing Tour! Amazing Guide (Manuel)! Amazing Views!

Tour was one of the best we have experienced. We were quite fortunate we did not have to wait too long for the tickets but be prepared to wait. The rep was easy to find and everything from the get go was very clear. Where to go what to do etc... Every good tour needs a good tour guide and our guide Manuel made the day very memorable. He was very informative, funny, enthusiastic and knowledgable. We can not recommed it enough. Climbing the Eiffel tower is a must. Challenging but it will take approx 25-30mins its all done at a steady pace its not a race. Manny has the coolest hair - never chop it off. Thank you

Skipping the line is priceless when you have kids!

Everything worked as promised! The meeting place was easy to find. They even kept our stroller for us. There was a lovely waiting area with snacks and water. The walk to the tower was easy and the tour guide kept us together while giving us historical background and general information both about the tower and how best to use our time in the tower. Of course the point was to skip the line and that we did. It was nice to have someone lead the way and not have to worry about where to go, what line to stand in and who can I ask questions. It was pricey but the peace of mind to know we would get in and not have to entertain an 8 year old waiting in line in the heat of summer was priceless!
