Make your own way to a central meeting point near the Eiffel Tower to begin your tour at your chosen start time, with options ranging from midmorning tours with views of Paris by day to evening tours that let you see the city light up at night. Meet up with your group and guide and head to the base of the Eiffel Tower, breezing past lines—often hundreds-deep—for your ascent to the second floor.
Linger on the second level as your guide helps you spot key monuments like The Louvre, Notre Dame, and the Arc de Triomphe. Then, continue to the third floor for the spectacular view over all of Paris from the summit—an experience many Paris tours skip over.
This tour concludes at the original starting point, leaving you in the center of Paris to continue your afternoon or evening plans.
