Worth getting the “skip the line” ticket. Guide takes you into area and gets you past the LONG line of people waiting to purchase tickets. General info but you are on your own once he gets you past security. Views were spectacular!

The skip the line for the Eiffel Tower was good. The evening cruise was packed with people, thank goodness I had done this tour on another trip. We found people to be rude and pushing to get to front.

Why would you line up for ages when you can skip the lines with 'tours' like this. A great way to get up Eiffel quickly. Views are spectacular. just wish the champagne bar hadn't closed for afternoon siesta just when I got there. Time you Siene cruise for twilight as Paris lights up for you. A great way to pass an hour!

Excellent experience. The guide who met us with the tickets and took us to the Tower was awesome. Explained everything and was very courteous and nice. Avoided a 1-1/2 hour wait using skip-the-line. The cruise along the river was also very beautiful. Highly recommend this tour for a great overview of the area and quick entrance to the Eiffel Tower.

It was really nice skipping the lines, especially on New Year's day. The lines were very long! The cruise was also very nice. Not crowded at all and nice and warm on a VERY cold evening!

Great cruise! We left at 7:00 pm just as it was turning dark. The city looked beautiful.

A big thank you to Kris I think that was his name from Viator for making this possible. Unfortunately we did not receive our tickets before we left Sydney and I was panicking when your operator came up with the idea of sending them to us on Whats App. He was so friendly and helpful, so THANK YOU and sorry for the lateness of this email, but I told everyone about him and how great he was to help us.
