This 2 hour tour begins outside the Jules Verne Restaurant at the South Leg of the Eiffel Tower where you will meet your guide who will take you up the 704 steps at a pace designed for your comfort.
There can be a line to climb the stair, but it will be much shorter that the elevator line. Along the way you will hear stories about Gustave Eiffel: The Young Engineer, The Entrepreneur, The Great Builder, and Life After The Tower. You will also hear little known fun facts about the Towers original color and the twinkling lights.
Before you know it you have reached the first level where you can stand on the new glass floor, and experience the world of the tower via a multimedia interactive exhibit. At the second level you will experience a sense of accomplishment and see the magnificent views as your guide tell you about Montparnasse, Les Invalides, the Sacre-Coeur, Notre Dame, the Louvre Museum, the Arc de Triomphe and the Champs-Élysées.
If you purchase the Summit Access option you will take the lift to see Gustave's Eiffel office restored to its original condition. You can also go to the Champagne Bar to treat yourself with some bubbles in the sky before you take the elevator back down the street.
