After a short briefing on the procedure, the guide leads you directly to the first admission check, then in the area everything seems much larger and the many people are spread out very widely directly under the Eiffel Tower. Then the group is informed again with short information about the color of the Eiffel Tower etc. and then it goes on to a short ticket check and off to the elevator.

The activity was very organized, we were given the tickets to climb to the top of the Tower and the access was explained to us, we hoped that from the top there would not be a small tour but they only explain the access beforehand, there is a lot of security control for the access. Without a doubt, an activity to repeat at night

Despite having already had a guided tour in the morning, we followed the guide for this tour. This guide was every bit as knowledgeable and entertaining but did not seem as dialed in with the accesses. We were delayed getting onto the tower. Then, he graciously allowed some tour participants to go to the washroom. They did not return and, after a wait, we almost missed our opportunity to go to the top of the tower. There were only four of us at the end. The elevator to the top was closed but staff allowed the four of us to go up. Thank our lucky stars or this tour would have been a disaster. We would have regretted not abandoning the tour like most of the others.
