Very interesting. And informative tour. Guide was fantastic.
This was a great tour - how many people actually know what lies beneath the Champ de Mars and how the towers' lifts work? Louise (Lulu) was a charming guide and related the history of the tower wonderfully. Well worth doing - beware the pickpockets in the area (don't engage with them when they ask you to sign petitions etc - it's just a rouse to catch you off guard).
It was interesting to find out about the underground bunker and the tower. I was unaware that the bunker existed. As the tower was crowded with August tourists, it really helped to be on a tour otherwise I would probably not have bothered to go up to the 2nd floor. I did not know that the tour was used for very practical war reasons and broadcasting. A great view of Paris and a well informed guide.
Although the guide was late in arriving (we were instructed to be there ten minutes before the tour was to start... and she didn't arrive until five minutes after the hour) never the less, it was very informative and interesting to learn the back story of the tower and it's importance in radio communication during the war and afterwords. The tour of the area the houses the hydraulic mechanism the operates two of the elevators was amazing! And of course, that added bonus of skipping the lines made it all well worth the price. I recommend it if you are at all interested in engineering and or history.
highly interesting and informative. Learned about something that didn't know even existed. Excellent guide.
Very interesting tour. Especially worth it because it enables you to jump the queue.
The tour was amazing. We were able to see the inner workings of the elevators and then visit an upper deck on the second floor where we were the only tourists. No one in front of you while taking amazing pictures of the Paris skyline...
Great tour!; the tour guide was interesting and friendly. The size of the group was just right. Appreciated the access to the 2nd level of the tower and found the tour of the bunker interesting. would recommend the tour to all friends who visit Paris.
Our tour guide was very friendly and informative. She led us to various unnoticed places called bunkers and then to the second floor with tremendous view. It took about one hour. The best part was skiping the line while hundreds of people were waiting in the queue. At the end of the tour we decided to use the steps to go down. It was a different experience and not very tiring. Thanks to the viator. com
Great tour with a wonderful tour guide-a tall young woman from holland.
This was a interesting tour of the great tower with our guide speaking excellent English. I highly recommend this tour to all.
Great tour! Very interesting for the must-see visit to the Eiffel Tower for first time visitors. No waiting in lines at the ground-level queues. Plenty of time after tour to spend on the second level with the option to go up to the 3rd level. Highly recommended!
