Loved, loved, loved our tour guide. She was cute, spunky and most importantly- knew details about the city as well as the Eiffel Tower. We skipped the long lines and was able to get right into the tower. The view from the Summit was amazing and shouldn't be missed.

We had an outstanding evening tour of the Eiffer Tower, including summit access. This is a must see, must do experience. We met at a local cafe near the Tower, with a short 1-2 block walk to the Tower. Having skip the line tickets saved a lot of waiting! I have to admit that I'm a bit nervous with heights, but the elevator trip to the 2nd level was easy. However, due to the crowds, they really pack folks into each elevator pod. Just beware you won't have ANY personal space. It was jammed! The views, even from the 2nd level, are fantastic. Earlier that week, we had toured the Arc d'Triomphe and saw the view from there, with Eiffel's Tower a bit away. But the view from the tower is far more compelling. We then ascended to the summit level. You can buy a glass of champagne at the top, measure your height in meters above the ground level, and have a picture taken at the kissing spot. I never felt uneasy due to the heights. We stayed past dusk and into the evening, and the views of Paris lighting up from the top are spectacular! When we finally got back down to ground level you can reverse course and take the elevator pods, or if truly adventurous, walk all the way down!, we managed to get some great selfies with the tower as the background. Just beware there are a lot of street vendors trying to sell every little thing, but for most of them, they were not too aggressive. Across the street there are some walk up places to get something to eat against the river we had dinner there and enjoyed the evening until about 11 pm. We never felt uneasy in the area. It was a quick cab ride back to where we were staying. This was one of the highlighights of our stay in Paris! Enjoy!

Regrettably I missed this tour, through no fault of Viator or the tour company. I got held up on the metro and misjudged how much time it would take us to get to the arranged meeting location. Just a tip, plan ahead and leave early! I ended up buying another Skip the Line package for another day, and it is an amazing tour! It just hurts to have to pay another time for it!

Our tour guide was so fun and full of information about Paris in general! The ability to pass the lines and go right to the elevator was great! Our tour guide her name has slipped my mind was great with my nephew 12 and all of his questions! Would definitely book again if I'm in Paris.

Worth the extra to avoid the long queues at the bottom, guide was great and very informative. Disappointed to have to queue for the summit but probably due to it being so cold! This night tour was doing to see Paris at Night

If you are going to visit the Eiffel Tower on your trip to Paris, make sure you book this. The lines are long without it. There are 2 security checkpoints to get in that can slow you down quite a bit without it. This is worth your money and planning to do. I am so glad we did.
