Very interesting tour.
It was amzing and really funny.
We had an astonishing afternoon...
Philippe was by far the most energetic, entertaining and informative. He was on time and kept us on time without being pushy or loosing any of the theatrical flair. We saw parts of the Eiffel Tower that we had never imagined or heard of before. I have a bit of difficulty with stairs, but he worked around my problems and I didn't miss anything. Filled with much laughter, information and grant sites. VERY HIGHLY RECOMMEND. and I hope you get Philippe.
Really enjoyed this tour. Very informative with great insight into the operations many would not think about. Be prepared to join in with the masses of tourists all around the site.
Skipping the line was well worth the extra cost. Tour of the bunker and below the tower to see the workings at the tower was very good. Made this an experience other than simply going up in the tower. Always like a little history and information for what I am seeing. People watching at this site is good. Lots of security at this site
My husband and I had been to Paris before and had been to the Eiffel Tower so we thought that this behind the scenes tour would be a good change of pace. We were right! We thoroughly enjoyed the tour which took us from the bunker to below the Eiffel Tower to see the machinery at work and lastly to the second floor observation level for a special viewing. Would highly recommend this tour.
Do not be put off by the title Theatrical Tour. This was absolutely fabulous, with an engaging guide. Initially booked as could not secure tickets to go up the Eiffel Tower and did not want to queue on the day with my 2 children. A treat not to be missed. Very inclusive, including letting my 7 year old wear a pilot hat. A little concerned at first as English guide did not show, but this guide switched from English to French with ease, weaving a love story and information about the tower. A treat not to be missed and one I would definitely book again.
This was a wonderful tour. Informative yet entertaining. Would recommend to anyone.
Excellent tour which we thoroughly enjoyed with costume changes and singing....a bonus.
Brilliant Tour, just at sunset views were spectacular. Gulde was great
The tour guide was informative, funny and he gave us a great historic and technical introduction to the grey lady. It was a wonderful way to end our excursion to Paris. We can only recommend this with full gusto. 5 stars because there's no option to give 6. :
We all really enjoyed this tour it took the worry out of going up the tower. Which I did do. The tour guide emmanual was great with lots of greatfacts and information. The bunker was a bit disappointing but still interesting xx
Fantastic insight into this world icon. It was terrific going behind the scenes and seeing things that many tourists don't. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and we learnt a lot about the Eiffel Tower. Our children also enjoyed the tour.
This tour was sensational. Ticket collection process was a worry but was fine.
Our family of 5 really enjoyed the artistic flair of our guide, 'back stage' access, history of the tower, and skip the line (v-good) although very cold/windy on L2 (hot choc fixed that), we paid 6€ for L3.
I thought it was a great tour getting to see areas that you had no idea existed.
The highlight was seeing how the old lifts worked.
This is definately a must do tour. I could not be more impressed. Very interesting just seeing Eiffel Tower is not enough
Absolutely brilliant tour - a very different and informative way to see the tower.
We were at the designated area before time however nobody turned up for quite a while. A lovely man turned up and took the tour as the original tour guide did not show. Apart from this start the tour was amazing. The guide was very knowledgeable and made the tour fun as well. My husband really enjoyed seeing the inner workings of the elevators. My only comment would be that going out on the roof of the restaurant was really no big deal, it would be better if there was a skip the line to the top of the tower instead of this.
this was fantastic .... would recommend this to everyone especially kids. My daughter learnt heaps from this fabulous guy.
Worth every penny! Learned so much about the Eiffel Tower on this tour. Seeing how the elevators work was phenomenal. Bypassing the long line was a huge bonus. We highly recommend this tour.
The four of us agree that this tour was the highlight of our trip to France and Germany! Maybe next time we will actually meet the lovely Lemony....
Terrific tour! Our group was multigenerational older children, their parents, young couples and fit seniors and everyone enjoyed the story and Phillipe's ability to engage us all. I booked the tour to avoid the lines, but this was the most pleasant of surprises. Phillipe was wonderful. Lots of steps involved.
Our tour guide Juan was funny and informative. He was kind and knowledgeable and encouraged questions. We recommend this tour for anyone who would like to learn about the history of the Eiffel Tower away from the crowds.
Our tour guide Rita discussed a few important dates in French history and outlined the construction of the Eiffel Tower. We were given a tour of the underground bunker and later shown the machinery operating the hydraulic lifts.
The tour guide escorted the group to the lifts minimal waiting and upon reaching the second level, pointed out the significant landmarks in Paris. We were then left to explore the Eiffel Tower ourselves and to get to the third level if we chose.
Rita interacted well with the children and adults in the group. Highly recommended.
