I am so glad that I bought tickets from Viator, when we arrived at the Eiffel Tower with our delightful tour guide Bianca it seems that the thousands of people without prepaid tickets already waiting to go up in the Eiffel Tower had been/or would be waiting for hours. Our tour g//ide was very knowledgeable, patient in answering our questions, funny and very personable. We visited the Eiffel Tower on 08/05/2015 I already recommended buying these tickets to a work colleague who was to visit Paris in September, when she returned to the US she raved about how great the tour was and was so happy I had told her about Viator.
With all the people --- everywhere --- the Skip the Line is the way to go. We did feel the directions to retrieve our tickets were a but cloudy, meaning they could have been explained better. We did make it after a few misses. Guide was great, knowledgeable along with being tall so we could see her in the crowds. I made it all the way to the top --- Wow! There is a great view from the second floor if you cannot make or do not feel like trying it to the top.
This tour was fabulous - 5 stars!! We had a fantastic tour guide named Sonya - she made this the best tour we have ever taken, and we travel all the time!! She obviously loved her job, loved history, was funny and entertaining as well as informative. We liked her approach to give us heads up info as we took the tour here is where we are going next, here is what to expect, etc.. She stayed with us up until we were herded into the elevator to go to the summit, and we were sad to see her go. I would highly recommend this tour and definitely Sonya as your guide if you are fortunate enough to be in her group!
It was great. We met Nico and walked to the Eifei Tower. On the walk he gave us a good history of the tower. This was such a better way to see the tower. We went in, up, looked around, took pictures and then Nico made sure we were in the right line to go to the top and how to come back down. A very enjoyable morning.
Very good tour and pretty swift trip to the top. This is my way to see it if you have limited time. Just do it.
Just skipping the lines was worth the money, but the additional information made our trip all the more enjoyable.
tour was great! Emma was full of wonderful stories and really brought the history to life!
The best way to see the tower!!! Simple as that. Any holiday is too short to justify those queues. Our tour guide was so knowledgeable, and funny! Very entertaining, and what a view!!! Highly recommend it!
Loved this. Great guide and good not to have to stand in line. Great views across Paris. A must do.
Our guide Richard was such a wealth of info and was so enthusiastic!
Absolutely fantastic tour, tour guide was really entertaining. always very interesting, factual and knowledgable. This tour was one of the big parts of our holiday and it didn't let us down. Would definitely recommend the tour to anyone through the bike company in paris. Amazing views and experience!
We had a great tour guide, Sonja and what was great about her was that she spoke clear and concise. And she focused on her group. And she was funny and very informative. Any one going to the Eiffel Tower, you should definitely use a tour group. So much faster getting to the top, no time to waste when you have a limited time in Paris.
This trip was definitely one of the highlights of our tour of Paris. Our guide was wonderful, and avoiding the long lines really made the most of our time. I would highly recommend this tour, but be sure to wear your walking shoes.
Fantastic way to explore the tower and surroundings. Denice was our fantastic guide. Solid choice.
Great tour and well worth the money! Karina was a really fun, and upbeat guide! The facts and history we received while walking around the 2nd level of the tower was really interesting and really added to the tour. Highly recommend to save time and to learn some great history and facts of Paris!
Bianca was wonderful! She made sure that each member of the group was able to see and have the best possible experience. And she was a wealth of information. Her enthusiasm was contagious!
Very fun experience even though unseasonably cold the day we went. We had a terrific, informative guide and the process was as advertised and handled professionally throughout.

Excellent tour.................. The tour guide was very well versed on the history of the tower, as well as the surrounding areas by the Eiffel Tower. Was very nice to not have to wait as long as others to get onto the elevators.
Very good tour guide with lots of knowledge. Didn't have to wait in line for very long. We had audio assist which made it easy to hear as there was a lot of other noise and people around. After the second floor had our own time to go to the top and explore more and look in the gift shop.
