This Eiffel Tower guided tour is one of the best ways to discover its secrets and enjoy some impressive views of Paris. Get to know the symbol of the 'City of Light'.
Eiffel Tower Guided Tour
The tour meets near the Quai Branly museum, a pretty little area of the city, from where you can see the famous Eiffel Tower - the star attraction on our guided tour.
Once we're all together we make our way to the most visited monument in the world. But although the symbol of Paris itself is an image globally recognised, seen on everything from keyrings to teapots, the story of its beginnings, its history and present are sure to surprise you.
On this guided tour you'll learn about the Eiffel Tower few ever get to know. What secrets could it hide to have made it so popular? How was it constructed? Why did Hitler want to destroy it? Why did French author Guy de Maupassant always eat at the restaurant at the base? We'll reveal all this and more!
We'll climb to the second floor of the tower, from where we'll get a delightful view of Paris. From there you get spectacular views of the Notre Dame cathedral, the Sacre Coeur Basilica and the Arc de Triomphe.
When making the reservation you can choose the option that takes you up to the top floor, although you should take into account that the guided tour takes place on the second floor, the top floor is unguided.
From there you can get even better views of 'Paname', have a drink in the cafe, or take snaps to bring home as souvenirs. Ooh la la!
IMPORTANT: the third floor of the Eiffel Tower will be closed between the 6 January and 7 February 2020 inclusive. During these dates, it is only possible to ascend to the first and second floors of the monument.
