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!

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.

This was a fabulous tour! Philippe was everything you want in a guide - very informative and
enthusiastic, including everyone in the story he was telling. I have been to the Tower several
times, but I went away with much more information. It was a lot of fun and I would recommend this
tour - and Philippe - to anyone interested in seeing parts of the Tower you won't see otherwise.

Really good fun.
A QUIRKY ORIGIONAL tour with background story full of fun facts and detours showing parts of the tower that the general public don't see.A lot of energy was put into this tour by a genuine french thespian. Good value and highly recommended for all the family.
