Excellent experience. We took the took that started right before sunset - I HIGHLY recommend this time of day. Could see all the city while it was still light, and then the night view was spectacular !! Our tour guide was great as well - super friendly, informative, and answered everyones questions. We got there about 1 1/2 hours early, and the people at the office made some excellent suggestions for us on getting a pre-tour supper. Would do this tour again !

Our guided tour of the Eiffel Tower was great! Manageable group size in the huge crowd of tourists. Microphone-headset system worked well. We breezed through the long lines and went straight to the elevators. Our guide, Kristeen, was knowledgeable, approachable and humorous. We were able to take our time at the second level and take lots of pictures. Highly recommend this tour!!

Had a great tour of the tower at sunset and the lighting of the tower. Guide was great told us all about the construction and how it was preserved after the World's fair. Headsets are a great help in being heard above the crowds. Only was to go is the skip the line. The lines were huge but we went right up. Bring your own earbuds or earphones is possible as the ones they gave us to use are not very comfortable. Bundle up as it is windy up on the tower.

Daniel was our tour guide that day. He was all this smiley and very friendly and always able to answer all the question. He told us so many funny urban legend about Paris. Too bad we couldnt see any sunset because it was so cloudy.

We thoroughly enjoyed this tour. Our tour guide was an incredible source of very interesting information, and the 'skip the line' front of line access was wonderful and meant that there was no waiting. We would definitely recommend this tour.
