Eiffel Tower Tours
Welcome to EiffelTowerTickets.co.uk, where we tell you everything you need to know to make planning a trip to the most iconic landmark in Paris simple and stress-free! Whilst it’s entirely possible to tackle sightseeing in Paris single-handedly, the sheer volume of impressive historical landmarks spread across the city streets can make cobbling together an effective itinerary a daunting challenge. If you want to pack in as much as you can, particularly during a short trip, it can be much easier to book yourself on to a sightseeing tour of the city that takes in the Eiffel Tower along the way. Whether you’re a first-time visitor to Paris or a seasoned traveller, the helpful guides on all our listed tours can make your trip more multidimensional by telling you all about the history behind some of the world’s most visited landmarks.
Ticket Prices on the Day
All our tours include admission to the Eiffel Tower, but if you would prefer to see the Tower on your own terms and not on a tour it is possible to buy tickets on the day when you arrive at the monument. You can generally expect to find large lines for all the ticket offices, particularly during holidays and at weekends. However these lines do tend to move fairly quickly and rarely take longer than 45 minutes, although in peak season this has been known to
extend past 3 hours!
There are different entrances to the Tower depending on which ticket you have bought or wish to buy. Advance ticket bookings and tour groups enter via the east pillar, where there is also an accessible entrance for disabled visitors ; the north pillar is where you can buy tickets on the day; and the south pillar is reserved for guests of the Jules Verne restaurant. The function of each pillar does change from day to day (with the exception of the south), but should be clearly signposted to ensure that visitors don’t waste their time standing in the wrong queue.
There are three levels on the Tower itself, and you can buy a different ticket depending on how you wish to tackle them. The cheapest option is to buy a ticket for the first two levels using the stairs. Alternatively, you can choose to take the lift to the first and second floor to save your energy! There are 704 steps to the second level and it normally takes about 25 minutes to climb them, whereas the lift takes a few seconds to scale the heights (although there may be queues in high season). The top floor of the Tower can only be reached by elevator, tickets for which can be bought at the ground or second level.
