What to expect
Visit one of Paris’ must-see attractions with this skip-the-line tour so you have more time to enjoy the incredible views! Choose from many different departure times to suit your sightseeing schedule, and meet your guide near the base of the tower. Beat the elevator queue, which can last up to 2 hours during peak times, and zoom straight up to the second-floor observation deck. After stepping out of the elevator, soak up breathtaking views of the city in every direction through large picture windows. Get an aerial perspective on famous landmarks and monuments like the Louvre, Arc de Triomphe, Champs-Élysées, Notre-Dame Cathedral, Seine River and Grand Palais.  Learn about the incredible feats of engineering that allowed the tower’s construction for the 1889 World’s Fair. Hear tales about the chief designer, Gustave Eiffel, and the many legends that surround this modern Parisian icon. At the end of your 1.5-hour tour, you can opt to purchase a ticket to the tower’s top (third) floor if you like, or return to street level. Please note: This tour provides skip-the-line priority entry, but is subject to all procedures and security requirements of the Eiffel Tower. Tickets are available up to 90 days in advance.

Cian was exceptional under pressure
Very well organised and smaller groups was great. Lots of interesting information and when we were evacuated 10 mins into the tour Cian was fantastic and organised for us to be amongst the first people back onto the Tower. He genuinely wanted to get us back up there asap, he could easily have given up and sent us home but he persevered.

Made me feel like a tourist
We did a number of tours on our recent trip to Europe, but the most disappointing one was the skip the line to the Eiffel tower tour through fat tire. From the moment of check-in the personnel at their headquarters seemed disinterested and ignored us, and Weren’t very helpful. The tour guide never introduced herself by name nor did she give us a rundown of what to expect. There was no mention in any of the literature that you had a 10 minute walk to the Eiffel tower so we were unsure how we were going to arrive. This was not a problem for my husband and I because we are in good shape, but for somebody and prepared, this would’ve been difficult. Basically this is a 10 minute walk to the Eiffel tower to give you group ticket access to a different elevator. We were there on a Saturday evening and the crowds weren’t bad at all. The different companies that we toured with made a point of letting us know that we were not tourists, but their guests. This Fat Tire tour made me feel like an annoying tourist.

Informative and Fun
Jun 2019 • Family
We visited the Eiffel Tower with and without a guide so have a great comparison. Having Eddie as a guide was great! So informative! Eddie provided great information about the tower but also about buildings and areas we could see from atop the tower. Perfect length of time, quick and easy, nice to skip the lines. A little pricey but enjoyable for sure!

Expensive but good if you have to do a tour
Apr 2019 • Couples
We did a tour of the Eiffel Tower with Fat Tire Tours, primarily because we missed out on booking tickets directly, and didn’t want to risk lining up and missing out on the day we had available to visit the Eiffel Tower. The tour was expensive for what it was (compared to the price of booking tickets directly) – we met the group and guide at the Fat Tire Tours office, walked to the Eiffel Tower and went up to the second floor, where the guide spoke for a bit before we were left to wander around the tower and down to the first floor ourselves. However our guide Denise was really friendly and knowledgeable. During the tour she had some great stories and was able to answer lots of questions about different Parisian landmarks. While I would recommend trying to book tickets directly with the Eiffel Tower, if you do need to do a tour then Fat Tire Tours would be my recommended company to go with.

Fat Tire Eiffel Tower Tour with Summit Access
Great Tour! Guide Eddie was extremely informative and entertaining at the same time. Perfectly paced, easy to hear with wireless earphones you got every word of his bright, richly detailed narration.
We’ve been to the Tower before but never to the Summit as quickly as with Eddie.

Didn't got a guided tour even when paid for
Mar 2018 • Family
We paid for a guided tour. It was 6 times the normal price so we expected a well guided tour.
When we arrived at the tower our guide left us which meant that we ourselves should find the right line ( Hint: It's NOT easy when you doesn't speak a word french)
As said the guide left our group which meant we didn't got a guided tour as we paid for.

NOT recommended!! They literally took 250$ for entrance without our guide even guiding us, she simply just left!
