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.
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.
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. :
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.
this was fantastic .... would recommend this to everyone especially kids. My daughter learnt heaps from this fabulous guy.
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.
It was fabulous! Our guide was so engaging - adults and children were completely attentive. It was great skipping the lines as well!
Our guide made this tour really enjoyable and memorable. Fun way to explore the Tower!
How fantastic was this tour. The guide was informative, funny and gave you a real insight the Eiffel Tower from a different perspective. If you were only going to do one thing in Paris do this tour.
Excellent guide didn't catch his name. Stayed in character right up until he took us up to 2nd Floor of Eiffel Tower - wonderful, energetic talented young man and very knowledgeable about the history and behind scences of tower. Went into Bunker room area and also to mechanical room. Highly recommend
What a fun way to see the eiffel tower, behind the scenes and get some history. Our guide, Phillipe, was funny and a pleasure to spend a couple of hours with. This was one of the highlights of my trip to Paris.
Our guide Sebastian was very informative. We got to see parts of the tower not seen regularly by other tourists. Great value for money!
Book him. Fantastic access great story. Kids and adults will love it.
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!
