The tour was excellent. The only issue was that we turned up for 3.30pm tour, as booked with Viator, to be told by our guide that Viator had booked us on the 1.30pm tour! Fortunately, there was just enough room to accommodate us on the 3.30pm tour, without which we would have been VERY disappointed. Can't fault the actual tour or guide. The tour of the bunker and under the tour, to see the lift mechanisms, were valuable 'extras' from just a trip up the tour.
Great 20 person tour that gets you on the towerwithout having to wait in huge lines! plus educates you on the history in an entertaining manner. Also, you get to see some areas the general public doesn't get access to like the bunker, the way the elevators operate, and the roof of the restaurant for a private viewing spot. Kept it entertaining for children thanks to the actors many personalities.
Our tour guide give us a funny, full of facts and exceptional tour and I would recommend it to any person that is going to visit The Effel Tower.
Sebastian was great! He was charming and entertaining, and my girls enjoyed the tour, especially my 8 year old, who was Sebastian's designated co-pilot. He made it special and memorable for her first trip to Paris. Additionally, the theatrical story telling made the learning part of the history of the Eiffel Tour fun. We would recommend this tour to all ages!
What an amazing tour. Our guide played a character and it was engaging and funny. We went into the bunker below tower which was interesting and informative. Skipping the line throughout all this tour and walking past crowds was special. We went into lift engineering rooms and had special attention throughout. Would do this again, it is so good.
great fun! my son really enjoyed it! Lots of information and nice to see the bunkers and see the behind the scenes of the Eiffel tower! Guide was extremely funny and engaging!
Oh my all I can say is what a great few hours. I would highly recommend this to anyone......it is not only very amusing and entertaining but also informative and fun
My daughter who has been to the Eiffel Tower several times was sceptical about this tour as she'd already seen it, however at the end of this she admitted this was fantastic....
This was fantastic. Henri was energetic, enthusiastic, funny, entertaining and helpful. On this tour we saw and learned interesting and entertaining history and facts that we couldn't have done without it. Just the right length. Still had to wait a little while to get in the lift to go up the Tower but that's to be expected.
The tour guide was on the mark - he knew what he was talking about and he knew how to get his point across and he knew how to entertain the crowd. Well worth doing.
GREAT tour, our guide was excellent. We learned so much and in such a fun and interesting way! He knew right where to take us to avoid the crowds...Highly recommend
We loved our tour guide he was so funny so nice and so well informed had a wonderful time. So much fun.
I left it late to book the Eiffel tower Tickets,by Three Months! So I was looking for a skip the queue. I read some reviews and in the end opted for,Viatours. Due to leaving passports at home and having to go back home and get them it was always going to be a rush to get the pre booked 4pm tour. But while on the Eurostar I kept in contact with Caroline at their office who could of not been more helpful. In the end myself and my six year old son had to go straight to the Eiffle tower from the station,again while in contact with Caroline
In the end we got their about 2/3 min late, I phoned .Caroline and told here we had arrived,but no tour guide.Five min later he turned up,he explained he always leaves at 4pm on the dot,which is fair enough and I accept that.
The tour to be honest was just a way to get up the Eiffel tower,and the sooner it was over the better,well so I thought.
It was fantastic!! The tour guide,kept my young son entertained calling his name.Max. And to see the Underground bunker and learn about the history of it,then under the tower to see one and learn about the lifts.
I am so glad I went on this tour,and I would advice anybody if you are going to the Eiffel tower go on this tour. Its a lot more than skipping the queue.
Thank you all at Viatour,for a great time.If this was Ebay I would give it a. A
This was a fantastic tour - extremely entertaining and informative and the Aviator was very talented and funny. From what started as a cool but sunny morning turned into a wet, cold and windy experience once we were up the Eiffel Tower. However this did not deter the actor at all and he kept in character throughout our adventure offering more facts about this historical landmark. Well done - the change in weather broke the continuity of our tour a little and my regret is that I wasn't quick enough in my thinking to extend a well earned gratuity to him. My apologies.
The gentleman who ran our tour was very lovely, dramatic and fun to be with. He was sincerely dedicated to making sure we had a great time and was a lovely host. We really enjoyed the tour and would recommend it to our friends and family.
This was a fantastic tour! Our kids loved it just as much. We did it at night and got to see the Tower all lit up. Philip is fantastic.
We had so much fun! Our guide had so much energy and kept us entertained the whole time. He didn't miss a beat when it started pouring while we were on the 2nd level! We felt very privileged to see the inner workings of the elevators-they were fascinating! Definitely the best way to see the Eiffel Tower! You could wait in line for an hour or more, or you could take this creative tour!
What a great time. Such a character..So engaging and so entertaining. Informative and fun. He made good contact with all the people on the tour and almost everyone on the Champs De Mars aussi. He set a great tone for the group...very contagiously relaxed, which induced everybody to let their hair down.... Bravo.
Brilliant! THE BEST way to experience Le Tour Eiffel! Our guide, Gilles, was delightful, funny, personable, very knowledgeable, handsome (!) and passionate in his tales of the tower's amazing creation and fascinating history. A must do if you want more from your visit than a snapshot and view. Loved it!
This was one of our favorite tours. It was exciting, informative, and entertaining. If we return to Paris, I would do this tour again!
I was wondering what more can this guy do other than just show us the Eiffel Tower .But I was pleasantly surprised .The energy and enthusiasm of Mr Phillipe carried us through a great evening .Hats off to the man.With just a few props he took us through the exciting history and facts of the tower .He told us about the people who built it and how it is maintained , he showed us the machines that move the elevators .My children were thoroughly involved in the tour thanks to the guide.Definitely worth much more than just visiting the Eiffel Tower.
