We were not able to go to the summit of the Eiffel Tower as it was closed the day we were there. There was some kind of mechanical problems. Just requested partial reimbursement for our tour and hoping to hear back from Viator. Our tour guide was a young man who was not able to keep our tour together once he let us know that the summit was closed. A few of us stuck with him on the second level, and he did walk around the with us, giving us information on some of the landmarks that we could see. Although he was very nice, he did not seem as experienced as other guides we had on our trip. We were at the Eiffel Tower at the end of June and it was extremely crowded. They packed us into the elevator to go to the second level where it was a little less crowded and we were able to enjoy the views. I would recommend not going to Paris in the height of the tourist season, especially if you don't like huge crowds and hot weather. We enjoyed our trip, though, and took an unplanned boat tour after visiting the Eiffel Tower, which was very nice.

what to expect

Meet your local guide next to the Eiffel Tower for a brief and fascinating introduction that will give you the keys to enjoy Paris' most famous tower to the fullest. Your guide will then take you straight to the second level, bypassing the waiting lines on the ground.

On the second level, you will enjoy anecdotes about the Eiffel Tower and its unique history. You will also learn more about the City of Light, and see many of its highlights from above, including Notre Dame, the Louvre Museum, the Arc de Triomphe, and Les Invalides.

At the end of your guided tour, you will be free to continue exploring the Eiffel Tower on your own and ascend to the summit through a second elevator where even more breathtaking views await. Sip a glass of bubbly from the Champagne bar (own expense) while you admire Paris glittering below.

On your way down, be sure to stop at the first level and walk on new glass floor some 200 dizzying feet above the ground.
