Very nice tour. Our tour guide was the best. He was very informative and dedicated even if we got torrential rain.
Well organized.
jennifer_H, Sep 2023
Not sure what the regular wait in line time is, but considering how many people were there so early, it went pretty quickly. Our guide, Pedro, was very nice and helpful.
Eiffel and boat

Nilo_S, Sep 2023
Greatly enjoyed the Eiffel Tower tour. Our tour guide Marianna was most friendly and hospitable, she made the experience memorable. The Sienne river cruise was wonderful, with a beautiful view of Paris from an open perspective. Great experience!
Leticia_N, Sep 2023

Bucket list ticked

Once in a life time experience to the top of the Eiffel Tower. The guides were very helpful. So much better to have someone arrange the entrance as it can be quite confusing. Lena was excellent giving advice and little facts on the Tower and it’s history. Highly recommended
ThomasJ_M, Aug 2023
Stayed for the evening lights. Absolutely beautiful. Had a great time throughout. Easy in and out with the guide.
A little frustrating
Tammy_B, Aug 2023
It was supposed to be skip the line but we had to wait in the line with everyone else. Took a very long time. Also meeting point was very confusing.
Not worth it.
Joseph_M, Aug 2023
Hard to find meeting place. Guide pleasant, but not knowledge and difficult to understand. Only benefit was less wait time.
Not a tour - just a ticket up the tower
Kimberley_B, Aug 2023
I assumed that we would be getting into the tower early since the time on my ticket was 8:30 am but we had to stand in line and didn't get up until after 9:30. If the tour guide gave any kind of "tour" we missed it because once we got out of the elevator, everyone just went their own way and I never saw the tour guide again. The views from the tower are spectacular but you could just purchase a ticket directly from the tower for the same experience. We did enjoy the river cruise very much.

Our guide, Caroline, was super friendly and sweet. She chatted with everyone and answered all our questions with great patience.
Very good experience
Todd_B, Aug 2023
Great trip and Carlos made the difference with his knowledge of Paris and instructions during the tour
Poor customer service, Viator and the Tour Operator.
Raymond_M, Aug 2023
There was no experience. The eifel tower was closed. it was an ordeal to get a refund. Viator did very little to assist. The tour opertor offered a partial refund. We booked the combined siene river and eifel tower guided tour. The tour operator offered a 50% refund which was not adequate. I would never recommend either the tour operator or viator to anyone.
No tour and didn’t refund trip
Nadine_L, Aug 2023
The day we were scheduled to tour the effiel tower, the tower was delaying entry for unknown circumstances. Our tour guide was pleasent, we waited 2+ hours in line. Our tour guide was given word that it would be another 2+ hours until we could get in, and we could either reschedule or get a full refund. It was our last day to explore Paris and decided on the refund verse waiting 1/2 the day. We did get the boat cruise passes which was independent, not as a tour group or guide. I messaged the company about the refund, and they only issued a partial refund. $150 activity and only recieved $75 back. The cruise passes for 2 with the company booked are around $20. What we recieved and what we were refunded does not add up. They also probably got a group ticket discount. The tour guide said we would get fully refund (or at least I would expect all refunded except the cruise ticket, but this boat cruise was NOT $75). We wasted 2+ hours in line with no commentary from guide or anything, just waiting. This was unacceptable for something out the customers control and we also wasted our time. I would not book with the company again.
Top of the Eiffel Tower
Daniel_C, Aug 2023
The guide(s) were amazing getting us to the top of the Eiffel Tower early. They worked well as a team and were having fun as well.
Everyone should do this tour when in Paris
Carmen_M, Aug 2023
Getting to the top with my son was a bucket list item. Thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience including the great coffee & chocolate éclairs afterwards at the cafe on level 2.
Very easy to check in and...

Very easy to check in and follow the guide to the Eiffel Tower! Very friendly and very helpful! Really close to the Eiffel Tower made it so much easier using Viator.
Excellent Tour!

Excellent tour, very well organised and clear on all instructions. Tour guide Maria was very good and gave a great talk on the history of the Eiffl Tower.

Going to the summit looking down on the beautiful city. Drinking champagne at the top. Seeing it in person was a breath taking experience
