With your group, stroll the short distance to one of the world's busiest monuments. Bypass the long lines and head straight for the elevators, enjoying speedy and stress-free access to the second floor. Step out with your host to take in some of the best panoramic views in Paris from the viewing platform, 375 feet (114 meters) above the ground. Get a basic orientation to the sights and landmarks visible from your vantage point from your host, then explore the area at your leisure. Snap photos of the Louvre, Les Invalides, Sacré Coeur, and the Champ de Mars, among other standout Parisian highlights. 

After you've had your fill of the second level, proceed to the summit, where you can toast your trip with Champagne from the bar and view Gustave Eiffel's private apartments.

Our 545 trip was canceled and then they made us wait another 30 min for the 6:15 pm group. When we joined there was almost 50 people there. They promised no line but we still waited 40 min in a security line.

We got to the 1st floor of the Eiffel Tower ok and seemed to avoid some queues then were told we were free and had to queue with everyone else to get to summit lift so this is very misleading

Great to be able to make it to the summit since tickets were sold out thru the Eiffel Tower website. Still a long line and while waiting the tour guide did not share any information on the Eiffel Tower until we reached the top.

It was useful to secure tickets when times are unavailable directly from the venue, but the line was not “skipped” and the tour guide left after a brief introduction to the site and we were through security.

Great experience, just be prepared for crowds and delays

Ultimately, the view is everything it is expected to be. Definitely a must-do at least once in a lifetime if you enjoy heights. That being said, this is the Eiffel Tower, a major, major tourist spot. Be prepared that “guarantee to skip lines” is slightly misleading. Yes, you are skipping the walk-up lines which probably cuts off significant time. However, and understandably so, there are going to be many, many, many people (this was in August, so summer crowds and heat are going to be more overwhelming than expected). Also, security is taken seriously, naturally, so there are still somewhat significant wait times for both checkpoints. Following the group can be a hassle and it’s not quick. The elevators take time, and there are many people with passes. In all, it took me somewhere in the ballpark of 1hr 45mins in all to get up to the top. You will also wait to get an elevator down (30 mins or so for me). Not a terrible experience, and it’s beautiful at the top, just be prepared and don’t expect a cakewalk. This is out of the tour company’s control. My only criticism would be that the deal description should reflect these realities as bullet-point disclaimers and prepare first-time visitors more accurately.

Poor value for money

this tour for which we paid a huge premium did not deliver. We waited in line for 45 minutes when we had “skipped” the line. This was a total waste of money.

Learning the history from the guides, did the full access ticket, not really necessary to go all the way up, the view is the same on the 2nd level, just not as high.

Going to the summit. It was spectacular. What a view of the city. However, it was very crowded. I guess that means it’s popular.

Beautiful views of Paris. Our guide, Santiago, did a fabulous job guiding us through the lines to get us into the tower quickly. He gave an excellent talk about the tower and other notable features of Paris. We had plenty of time to explore the 2nd & 3rd levels. Breathtaking experience!
