Traveler Tips


  • "Climbing the tower steps is quite easy and rewarding as you see the view gradually change as you climb." See review
  • "It's a good amount of steps to walk up to the 2nd floor, but there are breaks in between so it's not a straight walk up the 672 steps." See review

Great experience to climb the Eiffel Tower

Our host was amazing and very informative. He was right where he says he would be . It was a great experience to climb the stairs . We bought tickets to the summit . Nice to say you have done it but truly the 2nd floor is much nicer as after that you have to stand in line for about 20 mins to get up to the summit .

Lots of stairs!

My 8th or 10th visit to Eiffel and, well I don't like what they have done in the tower, obstructing movement and views. Our guide, while very nice, was not more knowledgeable than the informational sign posted around the tower. He actually just kind of got in the way. We had tickets to the summit. But he made us walk up two flights of stairs. And he just let us know we could have taken the elevator up to the second level. That sounds like an obvious option, but it is not. If you take the steps up to the first level you cannot take the elevator up to the second level. You have to take it from the ground level. Get an early entrance and visit it yourself, at your own pace.

Prepare to Wait!!

Our Tour guide Andreas was amazing! The company's logistics are awful!!!! We were instructed to find the person with the orange hats and Experience First flag sign and to arrive 15 minutes. We arrived 30 minutes early 8:45 for 9:15 tour. We did not find the small Experience First flag and orange hat until 9:00am. I explained I had a 9:15 tour and was directed to the end of the Experience First long line. We First stood in the Experience First line to check in. Then we stood and waited under the big tree for our group to grow to 23 people. Then we stood and waited in the security line. Then we stood and waited in line to purchase a ticket! I noticed that the other guides were waiting for a company credit card to purchase our ticket. At about 10:30, once we had our $20 ticket, we along with many others left the guide and completed the climb on our own. A father with young children, one who grew irritated left the tour all together! Andreas was knowledgeable polite and friendly, however the company is disorganized. We paid an extra $30 bucks to wait & wait for a tour in English when all of the info is listed on the walls in English! Save the upcharge and do the tour on our own!!

Thanks for your feedback and for emphasizing what we say every day and in our tour description-Prepare to wait! I am very happy to hear you found us at the designated time, no later than 15 minutes before start time, and also delighted you loved your guide. The extra cost for the experience is for the guide and it sounds like Andreas did his job well. You were not satisfied overall, it sounds like this was because of the waiting and so as a courtesy for your time I am happy to offer you a free walking tour as our guest, I hope we will hear from you and thanks again for the review, Linda

Great tour! Easy experience and knowledgeable guide.

This was a great tour. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable about the history of the Eiffel Tower and gave an excellent overview of sites to see and sites to skip. She also knew of current site closings. The tour was easy to find and we had some trouble getting to the site on time but the operator stayed in contact with us and helped us reschedule. There was some waiting for various things but I still felt like we got through quicker and with less hassle than if we had stood in the line to buy tickets on site. Wewere also able to book seeing the summit with this tour which I could not do directly online.

Was fun and informative but a little forced. Appreciated the history and energy around walking up, but our guide was really trying hard to get us motivated (we all knew we were walking up and had plenty of motivation).

Expected small/private group but got huge group
Julia_O
, Jun 2022
Group was way too large. We could not hear the guide because we could not get close enough due to the size of the group. We thought this would be a private tour for our group of 8. It was about 25-30 people. Guide was very nice but would stop and speak for 20ish mins at one spot. We eventually left the group to explore on our own. Waste of money.

Great experience. Especially going up by staircase is ideal for taking a proper look at the structure. Visitors should allow for a few hours for this, particularly at peak times.
