Traveler Tips

  • "It is completely worth it to wait a few minutes for the elevator." See review
  • "Not sure that going up to the 2nd level of the Eiffel tower is THAT much better than the 1st level - it's extremely windy and cold so wear your warm clothes!" See review

Our guide was informative and very friendly.. It was so nice to skip the lines! It was a small group so everyone could ask questions easily..
Won't do it again!

My most memorable experience is that I did not get a chance to have one... Make sure you scroll down your screen when Viator sends you an email telling with the subject "Your Tickets are Here" and you see a barcode. This barcode is NOT your ticket. You actually have to get them at an office away from the Eiffel Tower. If you're like me and you realize it once you've gone through security you don't want to go out of the area again. That was some of the most $250 wasted in my life when I saw the disappointment of my children who had been waited for this moment for a long time.

Our flight to Paris as well as our river cruise was canceled. As I understand it the Eiffel Tower was not open on May 18th so if we had been there we could not have used the tickets. I have (and do) again requested a refund.

Our tour guide, Maarten, did an excellent job organizing the group and moving us quickly through the line. His presentation was clear and entertaining.
Great experience

Hugo was our tour guide. He was awesome. He gave us plenty of historical background and use the view for a landmark tour. I definitely recommend it.

We had a nice time. Our guide, Maarten kept it interesting and entertaining at the same time. We would definitely sign up again.

Our host was Ricardo, whom I give kudos. He was an excellent guide and provided a lot of history. Very professional and personable. Thoroughly enjoyed the view from the 2nd level which I feel is the best. We had high winds with rain and some hale, and Ricardo made sure we were taken care of. Answered all questions and gave an excellent overview. Should I have the opportunity to come again, I would hope that I would be able to request him.
Great guide

Maarten was an awesome guide! Very fun and knowledgeable. The weather was horrible and we couldn’t see much, so he described things really well.
Good tour
, Mar 2020
The service is very good. The meeting point is close to the Eiffel Tower. The appointment is some minutes before and in the meantime, walking towards the Eiffel Tower the tourist operator explained to us something about Paris. We went directly to the entrance. The tour was very good and the tour guide was good and kind.
Not great.
, Mar 2020
We did not find the guide, our tickets wouldn’t work without the guide. We therefore ended up buying a second load of tickets. I think this is terrible as the tickets on here are non refundable. When we got up there it was beautiful, the experience was great but I wouldn’t recommend getting your tickets on here.
