Traveller Tips

It was raining and cold the day I did the tour but it’s worth going up to see the Eiffel tower.
It is however very very crowded on the tower so be prepared for alot of elbows with some pushing and shoving from some of the less patient tourists.
There is a cafe area on level 1 serving fresh food and coffee at very decent prices.

Not much of a history...
Ariel_B, Aug 2022
Not much of a history tour. Just gave facts about the tower and city that was common knowledge. Very disorganized

Basically a well operated scam
Ella_S, Aug 2022
Unfortunately, Our tour was cancelled due to severe thunderstorm. The Eiffel Tower was closed that evening . The local representative said Viator/TripAdvisor will refund all their clients their money back. I still haven’t received my refund. Aside from that it’s basically a scam. Companies like Aviator or TripAdvisor buy large amounts of tickets from the official Eiffel Tower website (so there’s no tickets left) and sell them for 5 or 10 times more expensive. There is no skip the line!!! The only line you skip is the purchasing the tickets line. If you can just purchase the tickets in advance from the Eiffel Tower official website. Kids under 18 are free. On the viator website I had to purchase for my kids too. (11,14) Instead of paying 51 euros for (2 adults +2 teens) I paid $214.5 for an event that was canceled.

This is the worst experience I've ever had with a vendor abroad. I booked the Eiffel Tower Skip the Line Tour with Viator. We weren't able to hail a taxi in decent time, as a result, we were running a few minutes behind. We called the Operator on our way to the tour, but they were unable. I had to use my phone while on a foreign country and I was placed on hold for several minutes. I don't understand why an operator is unable to be reached, especially during their business hours when customers will need to reach them! We arrived at the meeting site 5 minutes late and we were told that our group has left. They also told us that they cannot refund us our money, neither can they rebook us for another tour! This is absurd! This tells me that the company doesn't mind stealing people's hard earned money. I go on vacation to relieve my stress, not to have a dishonest company take advantage of the money I've worked for all year! I came to Paris with my friend who lost her husband last year. This aspect of the trip ruined the whole day for us. I am still in Paris at the moment, but yet they said they will not be able to reschedule the Eiffel Tower tour for us. They would rather steal our money and pretend as if they're a reputable company. If you don't want something like this to put a damper on the vacation that you've worked very hard to go on, please do not book your tour with this company. To say I am disappointed is an understatement!

I asked to upgrade to go to the top of the Eiffel Tower instead of the main level. The woman did not explain that we would have to wait for an additional 20 min for the next tour, and then in line in the hot Sun and crowds for around 45 min longer to go from the main level to the top. Although she was quick and happy to take our extra 15 euros each! and it probably would have been fine to stay on the main level as that view was very good.

Ask for Billy!
Garrett_C, Aug 2022
Great trip! Billy, our guide, was superb. We were a little late to leave for the Tower- but still well worth the trip. The morning our tour, the agency was able to offer tickets to the summit. Two of our party made the trip and felt it was well worth it!
Great tour
anitra_m, Sept 2022
The tour guide was great and knowledgeable. He explained a lot of history of the Tower. It was cool to go to the top and look down.
Andrew_B, Aug 2022
Experience was very good. Guide was excellent. Would recommend to friends. I am not a fan of having to write 100 words when I was done at 73 :(
Alia_A, Aug 2022

Recommend this activity.
Judith_A, Aug 2022
We enjoyed learning the history of the tower from our entertaining guide, Hugo. He was knowledgeable, enthusiastic and brought the tower to life with his stories making learning fun.
TLC required to the old iron lady
Darrell_W, Aug 2022
Ticking the bucket list item off. View was great; commentary by guide limited; lots of works / barriers underway took a bit off the experience
A great way to visit the Tour Eiffel
Alberto_B, Sept 2022
Our guide Beatriz was very nice, knowledgeable and took the time to make it fun. Skipping the line was a good feature. A good choice to visit the most visited place in France.

Charlene_H, Aug 2022
Best way to see the Eiffel Tower! Skip the line is the way to go. Guide was knowledgeable and fun. Lots of time after the tour to look around some more.
Bad communication, information and even the ticket that is not a ticket
Victoria_K, Aug 2022
In the email the was a miniature photo of that I have to be somewhere else and I didnt even know, that it is not a ticket. It is just a voucher but I have to buy the actual ticket at the Eiffel tower. And I have to come somewhere else. Eventhough it is called "2nd floor ticket" I didnt understand. They told me to pay 25€ more and I can go to the third floor. I did not want to pay more and not to go to the 3rd when I wanted the 2nd, they did not help me and told me, it is my faul. Very bad experience and wasted money!!!
Disappointed we also had the same experience at the Louver could not access to our tickets. Had to purchase 4 new ticket
Kevin_M, Sept 2022
We had a terrible experience. We never could down load our tickets therefore missed our tour contact meet. We have requested a ticket refund. Unlikely we will use Viator in our future travels Kevin McGrath
Great tour! Skip the line was awesome!!
Laurie_H, Aug 2022
Great tour, great tour guide…Hugo was very knowledgeable and gave us a great tour! The skip the line part was so well worth it! The line would have been 2 hours long and we walked right in.

Do not take ANY sharp objects.
Jere_P, Aug 2022
Presleigh was an amazing tour host. Great info. Great views. The people at the desk were friendly and helpful. Wish they had reiterated the tour does not end back where we started, so don't get a locker.
Great Eiffel tower tour
Linda_K, Aug 2022
The Eiffel tower skip of the line guided tour with Yazid was great. Yazid was very knowledgeable, with a sense of humor and shared great stories. We as a family enjoyed the tour. Would recommend to anyone.
