Eco-sustainable tourism, designed to respect and support local culture, art and traditions

Your tour begins at the base of the Eiffel Tower where your expert guide will escort you past the crowds, straight to the summit elevator. You’ll glide up to the second tier, 116 meters high, or if you choose to add on the top tier option, 276 meters to the very top – with the city of Paris spread out below you. A truly thrilling experience!

The Eiffel Tower is the global symbol of Paris. With its romantic nightly light show, it has hosted innumerable proposals of marriage and witnessed the many triumphs and tragedies of the last century. It is a mighty iron lattice structure, towering above the city at a height of over 300 meters. It weighs a staggering 10,100 tons, is made with 18,038 pieces of iron, and is held together with 2.5 million rivets! Constructed in just two years by the engineering firm owned by Gustave Eiffel for the Paris World Fair of 1889 and to mark the centenary of the French Revolution, it was only meant to stand for 20 years. 133 years later she’s still standing!

Explore the fascinating exhibitions and interactive displays at the summit, and view panoramic maps and images of the Tower as it originally looked in 1889. There is a beautiful reconstruction of Gustave Eiffel’s office – with life-like waxwork figures of the man himself, with his daughter Claire meeting the American inventor Thomas Edison. There is also the champagne bar, to toast your daring ascent! Your guide will leave you at the Eiffel Tower to enjoy it for as long as you like and give you tickets and instructions for your scenic River Cruise along the Seine, which you can take at any time. Having seen Paris from above, this is a beautiful way to see the many historic monuments of Paris that line the river – such as the Louvre Palace and Notre Dame – up close.
