Access To Eiffel Tower Guided Tour To The 2nd Floor. By City Wonders - Paris - France
Location - Paris
Unlike other operators, we start our tour at Trocadero Plaza, by far the best vantage point from which to photograph the tower. Follow your guide then, across the Iena Bridge and to the base of the Eiffel Tower, listening all the while to the fascinating history of the original "Dame de Fer" (Iron Lady). The Eiffel Tower was born a rebel. Artists around the country worked tirelessly to stop her construction and then to bring her down but she would defy them all. She's a surviver; outlasting all of her critics, reinventing herself generation after generation and working her way from outcast to perhaps the world's greatest icon. On this special access tour of the Eiffel Tower your expert, English-speaking, guide w ill reveal the stories behind her creation, near demise, and glorious rise to the top. You'll have a chance to enjoy her every curve from every angle and to understand the beautiful science that keps her standing. Your guide will accompany you to the dedicated observation deck on the second level, from where they'll point out the marvels that lay at your feet. From here, take in iconic sights such as the Arc de Triomphe, the Champs Elysees, and Notre Dame while enjoying your guide's insightful and entertaining commentary. After touring Paris from above, you will have the opportunity to buy a ticket to the summit if you so wish. Join us as we explore the beauty and history of the Eiffel Tower.
