Ride the Elevator



We had an amazing time climbing the Eiffel Tower. Kamila, our tour guide, was knowledgeable, fun and entertaining. While it says its 700 plus steps, it's not as hard as you think it's going to be and well worth the pain!!! You climb at your own speed and rest in between levels. The views from the top are SPECTACULAR!!!

A worthwhile undertaking!
Very clear and informative details provided by our competent and very friendly tour guide Sara. She also provided additional tips on other activities beyond the tour.

Best Guide Ever
Sara was our guide and I cannot talk highly enough of her. She knew her history but she also knew how to connect with all her tour group. She was especially good with my teenagers and held their interest for the whole tour. It was very cold at the second level at early morning and she moved us into the sun to help warm us up. She gave us lots of information plus lots of recommendations for where to eat, how to get around (especially in the metro strike where we had to use buses) and then took a group photo and sent it to us.

Meeting point

Meet alongside the Eiffel Tower on Allée des Refuzniks, outside the South Security Entrance (Entrance #1) of the Eiffel Tower. If you are facing the river, the Eiffel Tower is on your right. Do not pass through any security checks. We are outside the South Security Entrance/Entrance #1 near the trees and the benches with a sign that says “ExperienceFirst.”

Allée des Refuzniks


How much climbing is there?

There are around 700 stairs to the second floor. We ascend at a pleasant, moderate pace, with a break on the first level halfway through. Our Eiffel Tower Tour by Elevator is a good option if mobility is an issue.

Will we have to wait in line?

You’ll skip the long elevator lines, but you’ll have to wait in line for admission. This might take anywhere from 45 to 90 minutes during peak season. Fortunately, your guide will keep you entertained so that time goes by quickly.

Are there lockers available before we go up?

No. We advise that you leave your baggage at your hotel since the Eiffel Tower’s personnel has the authority to deny access to visitors with excessive luggage. Foldable strollers are also prohibited from the climb.

Is there food and drink available during the tour?

The first and second floors do include food and drink outlets, as well as restrooms. Your guide will provide restaurant suggestions.

What if it rains?

Our tours go on rain or shine, so please check the weather forecast before you go. If we have to cancel due to severe weather conditions, we will give you the option to reschedule or get a full refund.

What is the rescheduling policy?

We are aware that plans might change. You may easily change your tour up to 24 hours before departure. We provide a 100% refund up to 24 hours before the start of your tour. Within 24 hours of your tour, we would have incurred hard costs and therefore cannot allow rescheduling or cancellation without costs.

Are gratuities included?

Tips are always appreciated but never expected. They’re a great way to tell your guide they did an awesome job and show your appreciation.
