Traveler 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.

Fernando_P, Jan 2022
It didn’t exist the Guide Tour , the guide wasn’t there at the schedule , he/she didn’t appear , leaving almost 20 people waiting for 40 minutes in front of Carroussel du Louvre, outside cold , with children ! We called the agency and they tolld that was happened a trouble , but nobody called us ! I had to by new tickets e audio-guides and I hope to have my cash back (3 people ) ! I don’t recomend for anyone !!!!!!
No sympathy for the tourist
Malcolm_K, Jan 2022
By error I missed the meeting point, so I went to the gate at the Eiffel Tower, but they wouldn’t give me the ticket I paid for, and said there was no refund. All for a simple error. I was disgusted with them.
Eiffel tower with guide

This arrangement has proven perfect for our first-time visit to Paris with young children. The main attraction (after the tower) was our guide Salome, who was very knowledgeable, funny, and engaging, which made all the difference. The pricing was a bit steep, but the extra service was worth it.
Horror!!!!!!so much Money for nothing

Totale Verarsche! Wartezeit wie bei den direkten Tickets vom Eiffelturm nur 25€ teurer. Keine Vorteile!
Kevin_W, Jan 2022
Much cheaper wenn you Book it in the Official Website of Eiffel Tower. We have to wait the same time like all the other guests who Book the Tickets on the Website of Eiffel Tower. Then we have to wait at the office of the Guide. Normal Price on the Ticket we get from the guide was only 16€, but we pay 49€. Very sad!!!
Claudia was super
