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.
Brilliant Tour, just at sunset views were spectacular. Gulde was great
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.
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.
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.
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.
Viator NEVER fails to deliver!!! This was an excellent tour. We were taken to areas that the general public does not get to see. The tour guide was quite knowledgeable. She was also very friendly.
It was an excellent tour and my husband so enjoyed the underground tour of the machinery. Our tour guide, I believe her name was Louise, was excellent! She spoke great English and was extremely knowledgeable. The price was good. Thank you
Interesting Tour. Have been to the Eiffel Tower many times and never knew the bunker even existed.
An amazing tour with a fantastic guide. Bunker from a historical perspective very interesting. Also, being able to see the mechanical/electrical/hydraulic workings of the the Eiffel tower- something I never thought I would see. THen skip the line to the second level. Guide was with us every step of the way- so informative.
This tour is a sleeper but absolutely worth every cent!!
It was so much more than just the tower and we paid less than most other tours. Tour guide was fantastic too.
We found this tour to be informative and the trip to the second floor of the Eiffel Tower gave us a wonderful view of Paris.
Great price, no lines, and great information with an awesome tour, our tour guide was very knowledgeable, I recommend this to everyone.
We've been to Paris a number of times, but we've never known about this tour before. It's great!! You get to enter the bunker on the Champs de Mars and see a lot of history there. Then you go inside the workings of the tower and see the huge piston and the two accumulators at work. Even if you're not an engineer, like my husband, you'll be impressed. One thing was a little confusing, though. In the information, it said you wouldn't get priority entrance into the tower itself. That's not true. You do get priority entrance into the tower, just not to the top.
I highly recommend this tour to those who have never been to the Eiffel Tower and to those who've been and never thought of going again. This is a great reason to visit the Grand Dame again.
Been to the Eiffel tower a number of times and this was the best, most amusing visit ever.
Our tour guide was witty and very informed and ready to answer all questions, including the technical ones.
Speedy entrance and well worth the money.
This tour was very informative...our guide was very knowledgeable.It was really interesting to get a behind the scene look at the Eiffel Tower.
