The Eiffel Tower tour was wonderful! Our tour guide, Meva was great! She knew so much history about the tower and the surrounding area. She pointed out many interesting sights from the tower to see while we were in Paris. I highly recommend paying the extra euros at the tower to be able to go all the way to the top. What a fantastic view! It is also a fun place to eat. It was well worth the money for the tour to be able to skip the long entry line and learn so much about the Eiffel Tower and surrounding area being on a tour. Be sure to look at the Eiffel Tower an night when it is dark. The sparkling lights are fabulous!

We loved the Eiffel Tour!!! And every detail explained in the overview of the tour was accurate. We were very impressed with the specific travel directions, the location for meeting, the professionalism of the staff and knowledge of the tour guide! Most French people spoke English, and when they didn't they tried to communicate with you.

Great tour. I highly recommend it. We skipped the line as promised and toured the second level. Then we purchased the summit tickets after our tour ended, so we got the full experience. Everyone from the staff behind the counter to our tour guide were super friendly and professional. If we had more time in Paris, I would have scheduled a walking tour with this company.
