Effiel Tower is only pretty at nights. Great plave
, Nov 2019
Really Nice place. The only draw back the line was so long to get back down that we missed our dinner cruise which we paid both the cruise and the tour of this Effiel Tower. The tour showed us nothing and only took the time to warn us about the security and not carrying sharp objects into the facility as they will confiscate them. We had to leave the next day so we still have the tickets as we missed the cruise. It was my husband's birthday so he was highly disappointed as we couldn't do our tour which he loves being on the water.

Tour guide Maxim was great. Skip the line tickets saved about an hour. Stayed from sunset to the sparkling lights.

The tour and view were wonderful but extremely crowded. Also received notice the morning of our tour that our time had been changed, was challenging but worked out - be aware of unexpected changes
What a Joke!

There was no “skip the line”. I purchased this tour because I was traveling with my 85 year old mom. It was her first time to Paris. We we shocked and disappointed to find that there was a very long line we would have to wait in. NEVER AGAIN will I book with this company.

useless tour - tour operator spent 15 minutes with the group of the 6 of us then left us at the entrance o the Eiffel tower- late in the day - no line. She hurriedly distributed the tickets for the Illuminations cruise with little or no instruction as to how to get to the boat, which, by the way, can be used any day up to a year later. The boat was very uncomfortable with bleacher seats outside (no back support of any kind) and with a group of rowdy teens on board, not the least bit romantic or serene. A total waste of time and money. This was our least favorite cruise.
Had A great time.

We had a great time. We were advised by Viator of a time change via email, but we could not replay to this email. We met our guide at the new time and place, even without replaying to this email, so all went smoothly anyway.

It was not skip the line. We waited for one hour. The person was very nice and helpful and informed about the history.
Great experience for a great deal...

We loved the tour. Unfortunately, my camera battery died & I was not able that get photos. Wish I could have gone back just to take those awesome views of Paris & the interior of the tower itself.
Awesome View

Skip the line was really a joke as so many people are doing the same. We could have pre-purchased the tickets and found the line by ourselves....having a guide meet us and take us to the line really saved us nothing....even the cruise was no better....glad we did both, but think buying your own tickets ahead is just the same.
