Why Our Insiders Chose This Tour

It made me sad to see all of the barriers around this lovely park area, however, it is certainly safe. The tour was informative, fun, would be especially interesting for people who have party members who are mechanically inclined. It was fascinating to see the working of the elevators-two kinds of set ups-and the interior/below ground structure of the Tower. Also a perk, skipping line to second level. We elected to go to top via elevator. Long wait for ride down from very top makes me think an income opportunity might have been missed by tour operators. Lovely guide, informative, and engaging.

You can see all the photos but there is nothing like the human eye to fully appreciate this amazing structure

Chloe was wonderful! Very knowledgeable and went from French to English to Spanish not sure how someone that was not English speaking got to be part of the group but they were very nice and Chloe was great explaining without 'holding us up' due to speaking to each of our language needs. Seeing under the Eiffel Tower, hearing the history behind Eiffel's structure then going up into the tower to see how the elevators worked from below the ground to above the second floor was incredible! Well worth the cost and Chloe is the gal to show and tell you everything you ever wanted to know!

Excellent tour. My husband is very interested in the mechanics of the tower and we both found the tour guide was very knowledgeable and interesting. It was a small group and therefore the experience was more personal and stress-free. We got front of the line access, so we spent no time waiting to get in, both in the bunker and in the elevators to the tower. HIghly recommend that you book without hesitation.

We really enjoyed this tour, despite our jet lag. Tomas was a very friendly and knowledgeable guide. We enjoyed getting to go behind the scenes as well as the views from the tower. I would recommend building in some extra time after the official tour ends for time to visit the first level.

Annabelle was a very knowledgeable guide with very interesting information. Unfortunately we chose a pretty miserable, rainy day to climb, however the tour itself was interesting, particularly the lift mechanics etc. We ended up purchasing additional tickets to go to the top, which was worth it - and fortunately likely due to the poor weather, the queue wasn't too long. We thought it was a worthwhile experience as a 'must do' in Paris, but we wouldn't likely do it again.

I loved the Florence walking tour! The small group made it much more enjoyable. Our guide was fantastic and really made the difference to me when seeing the sights I was looking forward to especially seeing the statue of David, her knowledge of Michelangelo and his art gave me such great insight.
