What you'll do

Get ready to understand the genius and vision of Gustave Eiffel and let us immerse you in an ocean of intrigues, mysteries and anecdotes that will awaken a new side of Paris. Let us tell you what the “Iron Lady” has to say! No need to go up the Eiffel Tower to feel its magnificence... We will unveil you its amazing stories and secrets! Don’t you want to know what Mister Eiffel had in mind when he built this tower? Why it had to be this exact and precise height? Between sciences, religion, architecture and astronomy, its beauty and perfection can in no case be the fruit of chance. Yes, every guide book can tell you that the Eiffel Tower is 324 meters high, that it was named after the engineer Gustave Eiffel and that it requires 60 tons of paint of a unique “Eiffel tower” shade to cover it… but frankly : don’t you want to understand WHY this piece of iron is extraordinary?! We offer you a unique experience and a concentrate of research so that you will never ever see the Eiffel Tower as a simple iron building anymore.

Where you'll be

The tour is conducted under and around the magnificent structure. This tour DOES NOT include the Eiffel Tower tickets and and we will not be ascending the tower together. We highly recommend you go up the Eiffel Tower after the tour and so we will finish the tour in front of the ticket office. Tickets are available on site or online (price range from 10-25 euros).
