Tour guide was awesome and entertained us while we had to wait once we skipped the major line. Well worth the money to skip the longer line.
Loved this tour. Our tour guide was excellent and very informative. Would definitely recommend.

Great tour. Very informative. The tour guide was great.
A real day saver. The designated meeting spot was easy to find, only a few block walk from the Bus or Metro line. We were at the Tower on Easter Sunday, and everyone in all of Paris seemed to be there with us. The wait for security was 2 hours we went thru a special gate in 5 minutes. The wait to then buy tickets was also 2 hours for our escorted small group tour it took 20 minutes. Once on the Tower, our Guide from Fort Collins, CO, but a 3-year Paris resident was superb a keeping the group together and focused on the sights of Paris. Skip the Line is the best way to see the Eiffel Tower
Absolutely fantastic. A small group of around 12 maybe 14 of us met up at a tour guide shop near the eiffel tower then was fitted with a wireless earpiece so we could hear our guide as she moved around the group and at times went ahead to show the way and sort out security etc. It didn't take too long to go through the security into the area under the tower, as you can imagine security is tight and at the time of my visit to the eiffel tower in November 2017 they were undertaking building work around the perimeter and are building a glass bullet proof wall around the eiffel tower. Once past perimeter security, we headed towards one of the 3 working lifts 1 was being fixed that travel up the legs of the tower, we did have to wait a while as you can imagine there's a lot of people wanting to go up the eiffel tower and there's again security check point before going in a lift. We didn't get put at the 1st level we got out at the 2nd level and was given some interesting facts and stories of not just the tower itself but also the surrounding areas and buildings and also tips on where to visit or avoid.the views as you would expect are magnificent, you don't realise how high the eiffel tower is until you look around from the 2nd level, I'm not particularly fond of heights and therefore it did take me a while to get used to it and then I looked up and remembered we still have another level the summit to go up to. After taking pictures and videos and asking questions we we're then taken to another set of lifts 4 glass lifts that travel up the main shaft if you like of the tower, we had to climb a short distance to get to the lifts area, once there it's a little way up to get to the final stop, the summit. I actually closed my eyes for a bit during this and all I could hear was a few saying our loud oh my and wow this is high. We then stepped off into an area inside where there's glass viewing panels on wall all around where you can get your pictures and videos etc out of the elements if like me you go in the cold ish weather, once again it's astonishing just how high you are and the views of the buildings around you and in the distance is amazing.... But that wasn't it, to go as high as your allowed involved a small steel staircase that went above where the lift are is and once you go up there you are now outside obviously safe with the steel safety cage if you like all around, I eventually got the courage to go up and outside and wow just wow, if you think the previous views we're amazing and fantastic then the outside summit viewing area just takes your breath away. As I've mentioned before I'm not one for heights and I was pretty scared, but I was doing the Paris visit and eiffel tower visit for my mum who sadly passed away a few months ago and always wanted to visit paris so I promised I'd do this for mum. We have a saying, 'in for a penny in for a pound' so as I'd come this far I decided to go up and have a look around, people we're walking around the entire top area basically doing a full circle around the summit, I did try but was too afraid to leave the entrance area to the stairs leading to the lift area, so I took some pics n videos then headed back down. I attempted to walk down the stairs from the 2nd level to the 1st level as there's some glass floored areas you can walk on, but I only managed to go down a few steps and as it felt too out in open and was still high I went back up and jumped in lift to go to ground level. Phew was my thoughts as I stepped on terra firma once again, but I was so proof myself and glad that I did it. I would definitely recommend this tour as you skip a lot of the huge queues and the tour guide we had was brilliant and funny. Loved it.
Great tour well worth doing.
This two hour tour was wonderful. We saved an enormous amount of time skipping the lines. Our guide told us a lot of history about the tower, other smaller Eiffel towers around France. The scenery was great from above. We learned more about the history of the tower, the World's Fair, some of the monuments in Paris, the Public Park and special rules and more. We also learned the tower twinkles every night on thehour for 5 minutes, so we came back a couple of nights to witness that. ur Tour guide was friendly and informative, but Alas, this is his lasty season, as he is returning to Scotland for furthering his education. Good luck to him.
great tour -NO waiting an dver good guide
