    Best Eiffel Tower Tour
    Josie_C, Mar 2023
    I highly recommend this tour if it is your first time visiting the Eiffel Tower. Our tour guide was amazing, his name was Brendan. We went up to the second level of the tower, and had we not been with the tour, we would not have known what we were looking at from above. We booked for 6:30 PM which was perfect because we got to experience the Eiffel tower in the daylight, at sunset and in the evening. Thank you for a great experience!

    Our Tour Guide Cammy Oh my gosh what a great character and did a fabulous job describing all the Eiffel Tower represents and history
    It wasn’t skip the queue
    Joanne_H, Feb 2023
    We still had to queue and this is advertised as skip the queue? our guide was lovely but not worth the extra money
    Paris at Sunset
    Joyce_H, Feb 2023
    The view of Paris at sunset was gorgeous from the second level. Great way to finish our trip to Paris!
    Great tour, nice views
    MatthewStolworthy_S, Feb 2023
    Hugo the tour guide was excellent and gave a great tour and stories of what you can see. There is still a fair bit of queuing to get up there though. Getting down took ages

    Scenic and picturesque small group tour at dusk
    Richard_L, Jan 2023
    Tour guide was a very knowledgeable Young international student. Very personable young lady who helped get us through security easily as she prepped us, ahead of entering the tower, on the tower security access requirements and provided us with the history of the tower and an excellent overview of the historical monuments within the scenic Paris city landscape we saw from the tower. The Iron Lady is majestic and beautiful monument further accentuated upon lighting up and twinkling at night. A must do tour just before dusk with a small group(8max).
    The tour guide was great...
    Christy_J, Jan 2023
    The tour guide was great and informative. The directions could be better, we had a hard time finding the souvenir store. Also could the company have a booth or a sign to alert people. It’s dark and the city is busy. Overall great experience.
    Terrible service
    Chrystalgail_d, Jan 2023
    This was a trip for my daughter and her best friend. We arrived 10 min late due to the metro being delayed and called the tour operator but they were unhelpful and couldn’t provide us with access our tickets to the Eiffel Tower whether electronically or to physically meet the tour operator, even though we were right there and could see multiple tour groups walking around. Don’t waste your money with this, simply book directly with the Eiffel Tower.
    Must do in Paris
    TerriMae_S, Jan 2023
    So..the tour guy was very nice. There was about a dozen or so people so he would bring us in a huddle to tell us information and it was hard to hear as other tours were going on. The tour does NOT take you to the top in a elevator. Only to the second level. When asked the guide said the top was closed. Upon further investigation it was learned it was NOT closed. My husband and I went back down to the base and purchased another ticket which took us to the top where we enjoyed champagne toast to us..I think I I were to redo this I would just get a skip the line ticket and not mess with the tour guide. Eiffel Tower is worth it the tour not so much.
    The guide was very...

    The guide was very friendly and knowledgeable. Skipping the queues made a huge difference! Money well spent!
    Quick entry to Eiffel Tower
    Rachael_T, Jan 2023
    Our tour guide Liam was very accommodating and informative. We enjoyed the quick entry and we’re glad to avoid the long lines we saw.
    Great views and facts
    Amy_M, Dec 2022
    Great tour guide gave us many facts and tidbits about the tour and the monuments and buildings seen from the observation deck. “Skip the line” access still resulted in an hour wait, fyi.
    Good but overpriced
    Emmaleigh_F, Dec 2022
    The trip was lovely but if I'd have known the price at the tower itself would have been considerably cheaper I wouldn't have booked through this company.
    Good but expensive
    Helen_B, Nov 2022
    The skip the line experience and guide were good but having tried to book standard tickets and they were not available it was painful to skip the non-existent queue having paid a lot extra on this occasion.
    Great Tour
    Kurt_N, Nov 2022
    It was my wife's first time at the Eiffel Tower and the tour guide made it very memorable. We recommend to anyone.
    Sabrina_M, Nov 2022
    Booked these tickets very last minute, so we could visit the Eiffel Tower. Very lovely experience, and nice tour guide. It would be cool if they sold tickets on the second floor for top floor access, but thats unfortunately not possible. The lines were quick and easy to get through, and you are allowed to visit the Eiffel Tower for as long as you want.
    The Eiffel Tower - 2nd Floor is Amazing!
    Misty_P, Nov 2022
    We never found our guide at the gift shop and waited from 15 minutes prior to the tour. Luckily, another tour operator let us take a vacancy on his tour for free.
