The wait was so long that there was no guided tour of the Eiffel Tower. All info had to be passed on during the waiting time.

Tour to either the 2nd Floor or the Summit

Make your way to either the second floor or upgrade to the summit of the iconic Eiffel Tower with the help of an elevator. Being a single-slot morning tour, you will not have to deal with huge crowds and long queues for riding the elevator. Learn about the history of the tower and its different levels from the guide as you're waiting to board the elevator, thereby making the tour more engaging and lively. On the second floor, get to know interesting trivia about the Eiffel Tower such as its original color, its sparkling lights, and individuals who performed daredevil stunts and etched their names in the history books. After this, you're free to explore the summit on your own.

Magnificent View of the City from the Summit

If you've chosen the Summit Access option, you shall take a lift from the second floor to get to the summit. The Tower offers a bird's-eye view of Paris and its major landmarks. Standing from a height of 324 meters, you will be able to bask in the magnificence of the Arc de Triomphe, Seine River, Montmartre district, Notre Dame, Champs Elysees, the Louvre, Trocadero Gardens, etc. Throughout the tour, you'll learn more about the life of Gustave Eiffel, right from his young engineer days to his efforts in designing the structure of the Eiffel Tower. Visit this great builder's office now restored to its original state and check out its panoramic maps. Once you've had your fill of scintillating views, head back down to the ground floor.
