Full description
Watch the sunset over Paris from the top of the Eiffel Tower on a small group guided tour, with skip-the-line access to the 2nd level.

Your guide will entertain you with anecdotes about the Eiffel Tower’s history and construction, explaining the difficulties Gustave Eiffel encountered to get it built.

Breeze past the long lines with your pre-booked ticket, and save valuable time as you go straight up to the observation platform. Marvel at panoramic views of the city at dusk, and see landmark monuments such as the Sacre-Coeur, Notre-Dame and River Seine.

Your guide will tell you about the World Fair, held in Paris in 1889, and its most enduring monument. You are then free to choose if you'd like to go to the tower’s top level, where you can spend as much time as you like before descending on your own.
