What a wonderful few hours this was. So very much worth doing. All in our booking party were awed by the spectacle that is the Eiffel Tower. The tour guide Alejandro was so knowledgeable and entertaining...he made the tour!!!! We went to the summit and enjoyed a champagne at the top...I so advise this to be done for the extra few dollars. Great experience. So recommended this tour!

This was a fantastic tour and really worth the money. Our guide was enthusiastic and really really lovely. We even had a proposal at the top of the tour, which she helped keep a surprise for the nervous chap! Would definitely recommend. We went up to the top top of the Tower and that was well worth it, if you walk all the way around the top eventually you'll find a little bar where you can purchase a glass of champagne. It was a totally worth the money to do this, it really made the experience extra special.

Definitely a must-buy! The lines in for the Eiffle Tower are loooonng, even in low season! Don't waste your time in line, and buy the tickets here. Our tour guide was great! He kept the tour simple and let us enjoy the view.

This tour wasn't definitely worth the price in order to skip the insane lines at the Eiffel Tour and get to the top. Our guide, Johannah, was GREAT, and a delight to chat with. We wished we could hang out with her for more of the trip. I would definitely recommend this tour to get through the lines and get a little extra info on the trip!

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!
