We met our tour guide a few blocks from the Eiffel Tower and our group walked together to the Tower. We were able to pass the incredibly long lines of people waiting to buy a ticket and went directly to the elevator to start our tour. Our guide was very familiar with the history of building the Eiffel Tower and provided a few humorous back story's that you never hear about. For example, the Parisians protested and disliked the Eiffel Tower when it was built for the Worlds fair in 1889 and but then gradually came to like it! Our guide answered all of the questions our group asked and provided fascinating information on how often the tower is painted, what happened to the Tower during WW2 when the Parisians saved it from being used by the Nazis and how the architect of the tower Gustaff Eiffle had a secret apartment at the very top of the tower. All in all, this was a fun and informative tour because of our tour guide. I would highly recommend this tour to a friend.
Loved this tour. We went on the sunset tour which was spectacular. We had a group of about 20 and the tour took about 1.5 to 2 hrs and we could spend more time on the tower at the tour end. Excellent friendly guide, the meeting point was not at the tower which made it easy to find and assemble. Took the lift up tot he very top and walked down the steps. Well worth it, it was the highlight of our Paris trip. 2 adults and 2 teenagers.
Such a great tour with a great guide. Would do this again!! So much information given at the top of the tower.
This is totally worth going. First you get to skip probably 2hours worth of lines. Tour guide was wonderful. Definitely worth doing.
It was well worth skipping the line! We still had to wait because so many people bought the skip a line, but still worth it! Our tour guide was excellent!!!!
The tour guide was excellent and was able to give our group a lot of additional information about the tower that you might not get otherwise. There was virtually no waiting to get to any of the levels and plenty of time once done for exploring on your own.

Wonderful tour! Convenient meeting place a short distance from the Eifel Tower. During the walk there. The guide provided lots of information about the history. Then we had a private elevator ride up the Eifel Tower as soon as we arrived at the base, no lines.
Once up, the guide provided information about the whole surroundings of Paris. Told about the history, the buildings, the neighborhoods, etc. Then we were free to get to the top of the Eifel Tower and spend as much time as we wanted on our own. Highly recommended.
We didn and #39;t have the best weather for our tour but our guide made up for it. He was excellent. He had a wealth of knowledge he wanted to share and you could hear the passion in his voice. I cant remember his name but he was from Whales. We enjoyed his stories and many of them were entertaining.
The meeting location was easy to find. We skipped the line as promised! Our guide was friendly, engaging and soo informed about the history of the tower. I was with my 18 yr old son and we both had a great time.
Our guide was a world of knowledge and answered any questions which we might have had. Pointed out all the main spots of Paris from the top, as well as giving us all the history and background of the Eiffel Tower. The whole tour was very well organised and the group was a medium sized group which was perfect enough not to lose anyone! Great memory!
I think any time you are able to have a guide give history and explanation about what you are viewing it is worth having a guide. It would have been easy to just wait in line and buy a ticket to the top, but we would have missed so much.
The tour guide was very knowledgable and the skip the line tickets were worth their weight in gold. The line to the third floor wasn and #39;t awful either - waiting was made better by the tour guide continuing to give information while waiting.
daniel led our tour and was efficient, delightful, full of great stories, and informative.
This was such an informative tour. Our guide, Hannah, was wonderful.
Perfect tour, even with the constraints of the weather. Our guide, Martin, was knowledgeable, accommodating and personable.
