Important Information

Take part in this once-in-a-lifetime excursion to see Paris in one of its most historic moments.

Please note guests should be comfortable with walking for up to 20 minutes at a time. While we strive to accommodate everyone, the unique conditions of the Olympics mean the tour may not be suitable for individuals with severe mobility restrictions.

Visiting the Eiffel Tower during our tours: 
We'd like to inform you that our standard itineraries do not include an opportunity to visit the Eiffel Tower's interior. Here are the reasons and some considerations if you still wish to explore it on your own:
During the high season, it is recommended to allocate at least 1.5 to 2 hours for the entire Eiffel Tower experience, even with a skip-the-line ticket. This is due to the time required for security checks, ascent, and descent.
Our two tour options allocate 15-30 minutes at the Eiffel Tower. If you wish to explore further, you may visit independently and rejoin the tour by taxi later. However, please note that you'll need to locate the tour group on your own, as shared tours follow a predetermined route and cannot be delayed for individual preferences.
While we understand your enthusiasm for visiting the Eiffel Tower, we generally advise against it during our tour, as it may consume most of your time in Paris on a busy day. Nonetheless, if it's a priority for you, we'll do our best to support your decision and help facilitate the experience.
For a more personalized experience, we offer customizable guided private or semi-private tours with licensed Parisian guides who can create the perfect itinerary just for you. If you're interested, please contact us for a custom quote, and let's work together to create an unforgettable Parisian adventure.
