TOUR MEETING POINT
Please do NOT go to the Eiffel Tower, your tour does NOT meet there. The area under the Tower is very busy, therefore we meet just a few blocks away before walking to the Tower as a group with your guide. You cannot pick up your Eiffel Tower Tickets in advance. Please arrive 15 minutes before your scheduled tour to assure that you make your scheduled reservation. You can reference our 'Updates' page to learn about potential strikes, street closures, or special events that could affect your commute by clicking here.

Please do not go to the Tower’s ticket windows, box offices or entry points as they will not be able to provide entry tickets.

- Our Eiffel Tower Guided Tour includes access to the summit of the Tower, though the guided portion of the tour will end on the 2nd level. The Tower’s summit may be closed to the general public on rare occasions for maintenance, safety or inclement weather. This will not affect your guided tour and no refunds or discounts will be given in the event the authorities close the Tower’s summit.
- The Tower does not offer skip-the-line access from the 2nd level to the summit and therefore Fat Tire Tours has no control over the potential wait for the elevator that takes visitors from the 2nd level to the summit. Additionally, there may be a wait for the elevators to descend from the Tower.
