FAQ's
Is this tour private?
Yes, it is. No one else will be joining your private tour, and you will have your own private guide throughout the visit. There will be other people visiting the Eiffel Tower as it is not made private.
When is the best time to visit the Eiffel Tower?
During the summer season and special holidays, there is no best time, as the Eiffel Tower is always very crowded.
Are the parents staying with the children or separated?
We always promote a family-bonding moment, where parents and children enjoy an activity together as a family. So, parents and children will not be separated. However, if you choose to send your children on this activity alone, it is possible, provided that a babysitter accompanies the children regardless of the age, for insurance purposes (our guides are not responsible for the children).
Is it suitable for kids under 6 years old?
Yes it is. Going up the Eiffel Tower is an experience for children (and adults) of any age. Although the younger children who don’t know how to read and write will not be able to enjoy the game booklet, they will always love the experience of being in a high tower. you will be taking the elevators.
Will we have to wait in line?
We provide skip-the-line tickets, but on very busy days, there might be a line for security checks which cannot be avoided. There may also be lines to take the elevator from the second to the third (top) floor. During this time, the guide gives more details to entertain everyone while waiting.
Once the tour is finished, can we stay inside the Eiffel Tower or go back in?
Of course, you are free to stay inside the Eiffel Tower if you wish to continue enjoying the views once the tour is finished. However, once you have reached the 3rd floor and go back to the second floor, you will not be able to go back up. And if you reach the ground level, you will not be able to get back up.
Can I bring a stroller or a wheelchair?
Although technically it is possible, it can be difficult as the Eiffel Tower is usually quite crowded. We recommend not to bring a stroller and we do not recommend this tour for people with reduced mobility (access to the top floor is not possible).
Will my teenage kids like the tour?
Sure they will! It’s probably what they have been waiting for, and they will get beautiful pictures and selfies for their social media accounts!
