The Eiffel Tower Guided Climb gives you the opportunity to climb the Eiffel Tower with a guide who will share with you the history of the tower and point out the surrounding sites as you get to the top. You won't have to wait in the long elevator line and you will definitely get a good chunk of your daily steps in. There may be a line for the stairs, but this is still much shorter than the elevator line. Your guide knows the 704 step climb isn't easy and has prepared several stops along the way to share fascinating stories and legends about the world's most visited landmark. During the first section of the clumb, you will learn about Gustave Eiffel, the young engineer, entrepreneur, and builder of the magnificent tower. If you're worried about bringing kids on this tour, many people who reviewed this tour said it wasn't a problem and their kids loved it. Because of the breaks between levels, the climb isn't as daunting as it sounds. On the second level is where you feel a real sense of accomplishment. You can gaze out at the breathtaking views and enjoy the birdseye tour of the entire city. Your guide will tell you about the districts and monuments such as Les Invalides, Notre Dame, the Louvre, the Arc de Triomphe, Montparnasse, and Champs-Elysees. This tour is a once in a lifetime experience that will leave you with a sense of accomplishment, insight on the tower's history, and many wonderful photos to show friends and family when you get home.
