How to book Eiffel tower tickets?
We strongly recommend you to book your Eiffel tower tickets ahead of time. The Eiffel tower is one of the most famous attractions in Paris, receiving millions of tourists every year. As you can imagine, tickets sell out very fast so it’s best to book your tickets the sooner the better.
You can book your ticket on the official website if you want to go up the Eiffel Tower at your leisure. Just remember to present yourself there at the time slot you’ve chosen. Please note refunds are not allowed.
How can I buy last minute tickets for the Eiffel tower when it is sold out on the official website?
In the case the Eiffel tower is fully booked on your prefered date, another option is to book a guided tour with a travel agency to ensure you can get your tickets. Usually they are slightly pricier as they include a tour guide.
Depending on which floor you’d like to go up to in the Eiffel tower, you have a range of different prices. If you like this idea of having a guided tour to maximise your Eiffel tower experience, consider using TourScanner’s search where you compare all the deals from providers such as Viator, Musement or Getyourguide which offer reliable tours with entrance tickets.

General tips you need to know before going to the Eiffel Tower
- You can stay at the Eiffel Tower however much time you want but remember you can’t go back in once you’ve come out.
- Expect long lines for descending as there’s only one single elevator in each floor and when there’s a lot of people, you may wait there a while.
- Visit the Eiffel tower by night and witness a five-minute luminous spectacle every hour after the sunset.
- Don’t be late, everybody has a time slot to enter the Eiffel tower and if you’re late more than 30 minutes, you won’t be allowed in. Note that the Eiffel tower has a strict no refund policy.
