What to expect
Greet your guide at a central city location in Paris and stroll to the Eiffel Tower with your skip-the-line ticket. Sail past lines often in excess of two hours and begin exploring the iconic monument immediately. Enjoy illuminating commentary from your guide and hear tales of the tower’s ingenious designer, Gustave Eiffel, and its rich historical heritage. Watch insightful documentaries in the cinematic theater on the 1st Level and see an original spiral staircase used by the architect himself. Ascend to the 2nd Level to absorb the sprawling cityscape of Paris from above. Enjoy ample time to enjoy the panoramic vistas and then be entertained by stories of crazy exploits involving the tower.  After your 2-hour guided tour comes to an end, feel free to continue exploring the Eiffel Tower independently. Ascend to the 3rd Level for a glass of champagne at the vertiginous summit and return to the 1st Level for an alternative perspective of the city.  Please note: Your skip-the-line access does not apply to lines for the elevator to the 3rd Level. This tour provides skip-the-line priority, but is subject to all procedures and security requirements of the Eiffel Tower. Tickets are available up to 90 days in advance of your chosen travel date.

The Eiffel Tower summit or elevators may be closed to the general public on rare dates throughout the year for maintenance or safety reasons. Apart from possible delays for elevator closures, this will not affect your guided tour, so no refunds or discounts will be given.
Your ticket may NOT include summit access. Please pay close attention to the tour options which will indicate if a summit ticket is included. Please note that it is NOT possible to buy a ticket for the summit on the second floor of the Eiffel Tower.
Your ticket allows you to skip the line to access the Eiffel Tower but there may be a line for security and bag checks and for the elevator. Please note, no knives, sharp objects or glass bottles are allowed.
Please note: We cannot predict when the Eiffel Tower will be crowded. In general, long lines are common in the summer, on most weekends and during peak travel periods throughout the year (Christmas, Easter, local holidays). Our skip-the-line tours enable you to skip the line if indeed there is one. Unfortunately, there is no way to foresee which days and times will produce lines and which will not. Pre-book and pre-plan, and you’ll be guaranteed access to the Eiffel Tower to enjoy this small-group tour.

Excellent tour for our family with young children
We were fortunate to have scheduled this tour months in advance, knowing we would only have one day in Paris and touring the Eiffel Tower was on the top of our list of must sees with our 6 year old twins. The tour was well organized and included a great deal of history we were unaware of and had toured the tower 15 years earlier before kids. As promised, we were able to skip the lines on a very crowded day during the busy August holiday season throughout Europe, and made it to the summit level.

The ticket office announced over loudspeakers while we were heading up to the 2nd level, to all those waiting in line to buy tickets, they were unable to sell any more summit tickets at that time of day due to capacity constraints.

Choose Fat Tire Tours and book ahead, skip the lines, and leave more knowledgeable about the Eiffel Tour than you’d expect to from a walking tour.

Best option for Paris
If one is debating whether to pay extra for a tour to see the sites, debate no more. Fat Tire tours is absolutely the only way to go to skip lines for attractions in Paris. We had limited time on our last day there. Cannot imagine how much time we would’ve wasted had we not went with Fat Tire Tours to see the Eiffel Tower. The process is super easy. You show up at the facility/office, very close to the tower. You walk together as a group through security once you get there. Avoiding the line was great. Once you get in the tower, you are presented with an informational tour. You can choose to stay longer for the entire duration of the tour. Some people left half-way through and that was ok. I recommend tipping your tour guide. They know their stuff, and make sure you have a enjoyable experience.

Excellent tour
If you like a well informed tour guide who will provide you with loads of Parisian history, then you will love Kat. Over 2 hours of touring and Kat gives a lot of great anecdotes. Definitely recommend!

We had Remi as our guide and he was full of information about the tower and history of it. Walk isn't to bad on the body. Worth getting guide and skip the line but you can just buy tickets on the day and climb yourself.

Dave from Australia was Magnifique!!
Yes. Dave was an Aussie living in Paris who was extremely knowledgeable, engaging, and entertaining. He honestly enjoyed conversing with the crowd, answering questions, and making everyone feel welcome.

Dave’s enthusiasm for the history and his attention to detail was natural and convincing. He really enjoyed sharing his knowledge of this grand landmark.

Beyond his engaging personality, Dave’s voice projection was perfect for the environment. No electronics required! He was always easy to hear and understand every single word. A rare talent.

Definitely worth eliminating the stress of what to do, where to go, what to look at.

Great tour - especially skipping the line!
We had a great tour with George on a beautiful sunny morning in Paris. As it was our first day in the city it was great to get a good overview from an English speaking guide and tips on how to best spend our short time in Paris. Would loved to have had time for a bike tour!

Loved this little tour!
Thomas was our guide for this tour and he was delightful... full of great historical and anecdotal facts. Even though we had both been to Paris many times we learned new things regarding the tower and about Paris itself! I would highly recommend this tour!
