Great tour! Our guide Greg (Australian) was excellent. He presented the facts in a very entertaining way. Thanks for a good tour Greg.
Better than expected...awesome views and very entertaining and informative guide. The highlight of my Paris adventuring.
obviously...it is worth it to skip the ticket and elevator lines, especially in the summmer...but...it was also cool to get some vocal info on the history of the tower plus info about the stuctures we were viewing from everywhere...it was out tour guide, Steph, that made me rate this tour so high...she had loads of facts at her fingertips, and was able to project them with an amazing sense of humor
A fabulous way to see Paris.Everyone must go to the top, even the faint of heart. It is so breath takingly beautiful. One of those moments that take your breath away.
This is a MUST DO tour for any first-time visitor to Paris! The tour group was easy to locate at the designated time of arrival, well organized and we had an AMAZING guide (Jess). Visiting the Eiffel Tower was the first thing we did when we arrived in Paris and I am so glad it was. Not only did we get to skip the long line for entry to the Tower, but because of our guide we learned a lot of history and geography of Paris. Jess was informative and fun! She had many entertaining facts and stories about not only the Tower but many of the other historical landmarks of Paris as well. In fact I have found myself recounting the stories Jess told us about the other historical places in Paris more than anything else I learned while in Paris. Once the tour concluded on the second level, we were free to stay in the Tower as long as we liked and continue to the summit if we chose to do so (and we did!). We watched the sun set from the Eiffel Tower on our first night in Paris, we were inside the Tower when the lights came on and also inside the Tower when it "twinkled" for the first time that evening. They are memories we will never forget.
Great tour: very knowledgeable guide, saving time, and simply wonderful experience!
Our tour guide Hannah was very nice and informative. We had a great time!

We (a married couple and a female friend, all about 65), did this tour in late May 2013.
I recommend this tour highly. The guide, Stephanie? was excellent!
After all the rain that day, we were delighted that the clouds lifted in time for our tour, giving us the opportunity of viewing the city with the sun shining on it, as our guide pointed out places of interest and told us some of the history. We did get to see the sun set from the tower, at 9.33 pm! We also enjoyed the tower lit up, and the sparkly flashing lights all over the tower, which comes on at 10.00 and lasts for five minutes. We were part of a crowd looking at it, like kids watching the lights on a Christmas tree.
Our guide was very friendly and informative, the tour was on time and skipping the line was great!
The guide is very knowledgeable and friendly. He provided a lot of interesting facts about the structure and how/why its was built. He pointed out the various sights from the tower giving some historical information and the story behind some of the famous buildings and monuments see from the tour. I fully recommend this as you get a better appreciation of this famous tower.
I believe our guide's name was Niahm. She was from Ireland. She was excellent. Both knowledgeable and entertaining. A true delight and made the experience very enjoyable. A highlight of our visit in Paris. We would recommend your tour again for sure. We had a problem that the booking was supposed to be for a sunset tour and the tour date was set for a day before we even arrived in Paris but the Fat Tire Tour group helped us and set us up on another date and fit us in.
Luis, "The Mexican," was our guide for our tour. His knowledge of all history, sense of humor, and charm made this a wonderful experience. I would recommend this tour to everyone.

We thoroughly enjoyed the Eiffel Tower guided tour. Luis was our tour guide and he was very friendly and knowledgeable. Prior to going up in the tower he spent a while talking about the history of the tower and how it came to be built. Then we proceeded up the tower where we met as a group and he shared some more information. Then he took us to each corner of the first floor where he talked a bit about what could be seen from the tower and the history of what could be seen. At the very end he did a wrap up and then we were left to finish off the tour by going to the top of the tower.
