Step by Step

By joining this guided tour you will be able to tour the interior of the Eiffel Tower, the most emblematic monument of Paris, which you will get to know from an immersive and fun perspective.

Of the 1665 total steps, you will climb 674 to reach the second floor of the tower, while a professional guide tells you about the transcendental events that have made this structure, like the Colosseum for Rome, the universal icon of the French capital.

The 'Balcony of Paris', as it is also known, was created to be one of the main attractions of the historic Universal Exposition of the city, held in 1889, the same year the tower was founded.

Its impact was so high and immediate that it received approximately 12 thousand visitors a day during the 22 days of the event.

Along the way, you will enjoy breathtaking views of the 'City of Light' that will reaffirm its breathtaking beauty, such as the pyramid of the Louvre Museum, the Notre Dame Cathedral and the Musée d'Orsay, among many other places.

When the tour reaches its climax, on floor two, you will have the opportunity to go up to the top in an elevator if you have chosen this option in your reservation.

There you can visit places like the champagne bar and the office of the famous Gustave Eiffel, creator of the tower, whom you can see recreated in a wax figure.

    I really enjoyed the visit, climbing the stairs is a challenge but it is more worth it than taking the elevator up.

    The snacks were very good, I do not recommend to bring drinks during the climb because if you stumble you can cause a problem, it is better to take it before continuing the climb.
