Why take this tour?

The very first time one wanders into Trocadéro Plaza, the site that so perfectly frames the Eiffel Tower, is a memory that lasts a lifetime. On this brilliantly led walking tour, join a passionate local guide as they introduce the iconic structure and lead you, past anxious visitors awaiting entrance into Paris’ most famed Lady - “La Dame de Fer”, which translates quite perfectly to “The Iron Lady”. Spend the hours strolling through the Trocadéro Plaza, crossing the famed bridge, Pont d'Iéna, circumventing Champs de Mars, the greenspace surrounding our Lady, and then enjoying privileged access to the 2nd Floor where views over Paris greet you. At the end of the tour, you will have time on your own to take the elevator to the summit - the highest point where a bird’s eye view of Paris stretches before you.

There are few sites across the world more beloved than that of the Eiffel Tower. On this incredible tour spent with an expert local guide, wander your way through the history, hearing the stories of the iconic nature of this incomparable lady - the Iron Lady of immense beauty and symbolism, the Eiffel Tower.

Start your tour at Trocadéro Plaza, which has the best views and photo opportunities of the tower at a distance - take in the surroundings of the former site of the 1878 World’s Fair and the current location of the Palais de Chaillot, a reconstructed palace with fanciful pavilions and occupied by French museums.

As you begin your stroll, head through the gardens of the Trocadéro,with its bevy of gilded bronze animal statues and the famed Warsaw fountains with its twenty water cannons that put on a remarkable display. As your guide interweaves stories of famed Parsians and the events that lead to your surroundings, keep the Eiffel Tower within sight - each step growing closer to greeting her firsthand.

Cross over the Pont d'Iéna, the bridge that connects the Trocadéro to the Champs de Mars. Wander the public greenspace filled with curious sites and stories, and catch tranquil moments as you circle the Tower, seeing her in the round. After some time learning interesting tidbits about the Eiffel Tower, approach the entrance, swiftly moving past the lines of visitors awaiting their own entrance. After a short pause at the security checkpoint, access the elevator that will lift our group to the 2nd Floor. Here your guide will accompany you on a tour of the level, showing you all the best spaces and allowing you to view the incomparable views over the Parsian city with sights of Notre Dame, the veining Seine river, the Louvre, and Montemarte. As you break away from your guide to explore on your own, take the elevators to the summit - the Tower’s highest peak in order to see even more of a bird’s eye view over Paris.
