Traveler Tips

  • "It’s always best to prebook any attraction you don’t want to miss or queue up for hours, however in this case we were starting our tour very early in the morning so the queue wasn’t that long anyway." See review
  • "There are restrooms on the second level as well as places to eat and a gift shop." See review
  • "You could definitely see the Eiffel Tower without a guide, but if you don't want to wait in long lines, this is the way to go." See review

Amber was our guide and she was phenomenal. She was very informative and entertaining. I would recommend this booking with anyone looking to have a good time, see great views and learn some history. Our family of 8 had a great time!

Wonderful experience and guide.

Sheldon was excellent! Great guide. Could not go to the summit since they closed the summit. Great views.
bad organisation
, Dec 2021
The Eiffeltower was great but this organiation is bad. We where at the meeting point 15 min before our time. but there was a line to check the reservation. when we where sorted in our group we had to wait an other 20 min, then we went with a big group of 35 people with 1 host. Into the next waiting line for security. when we get trough the security there was the next line for the tickets. there we where told the top was closed. then we finaly get up with the elevator. up we saw that the top wasn't closed at all.. we didnt understand and the kids where so disapointment. ones we where up the host was nowhere to be found. so we couldn't aks about the top, because we didn't get tickets for the top, but we payed for it.. a lot of disapointments..

Hello and thank you for this feedback. You have touched on so many points which I thought are clearly explained in our tour content when folks book our tours, and your review points out some of the ways in which we can improve this. There is nothing we can do about the sometimes long lines and for this reason we advise the wait could be over an hour. There is also nothing we can do about the Summit closing/opening and we advise about this as well. The guided portion of the tour ends after the second floor and so there is never a guide at the summit unless a private version of this tour is booked. As for paying for the top and not going there, you are due a partial refund for this and should absolutely reach out to Viator to receive this. I am always a little sad to hear that our guests are disappointed, especially children, and I would be truly grateful for any opportunity to try to make this up to you with a free walking tour with one of our very "kid friendly" guides so that you can see what thousands before you have experienced with us, mainly our consistent 5 star experiences. I would also welcome you to reach out to me directly,, to let me know who was your guide and share more details so I can learn other ways we can improve what we do. In any case, I appreciate the time you took to share your feedback and I hope the rest of your stay in Paris was wonderful and that you have safe travels always, Linda
Breathtaking Views

Tour guide provided much needed insight to make viewing more relevant! Views were breathtaking. Had tix for summit too but did not go due to crowds & Covid concerns.

Well organised and hassle free entry to the lift with the aid of the guide. The guide was engaging and the views spectacular. Only disappointment was that the the summit was closed on the day of our trip which was beyond the control of the guide

Great tour

The tour guide gave all information about Eiffel and his accomplishments, and of course, the Eiffel Tower. She was very knowledgeable and a lot of fun. Great tour!!!

Our guide Sara was delightful! She was very fun and knowledgeable. Unfortunately, the elevator to the summit was closed this week, but it was still well worth the visit.

Thank you for giving us a 5-star rating. We are happy to hear that you enjoyed your tour though the elevator to the summit was close. Looking forward to hosting you again.
Great Views, Even Better Tour
, Nov 2021
I did the tour with Marine, and she brought so much passion and energy to the tour; her joy and breadth of knowledge made it fun. As a visual person, seeing the reference images she provided was helpful in bringing the history to life. I was quite lucky, as the group I was supposed to be with was supposed to join, but never did so I got a private tour! The only sad thing is that it was extremely foggy on the day I went, so I couldn’t enjoy the summit as much as I would on a clear day. Certainly nothing the tour company could help. Prior to my tour, I had trouble finding the meeting place. I reached out to the company via the support tool in Viator, and not only got a reply immediately, but received a phone call to ensure I was squared away. Excellent customer experience there. Overall, I left with a better understanding of the history of the Eiffel Tower, and would recommend this tour for anyone looking for the same. Thank you, Marine!

Our guide was very informative. Her English was very good, as she used to live in America. We had a great time

Thanks so much for sharing your experience with us. We hope to see you again soon.
Simpler instructions in meeting point
, Nov 2021
Instructions are contradictory. You should just inform that the meeting point is at entrance n. X where you will find the staff wearing Y, instead of naming restaurants as meeting points. So the gathering part made us loose our slot on the tour. Other than that all great
icon Response from Host , Nov 2021
Hi, I see you had confusing meeting point directions, and in fact these directions were updated to make it much clearer and I am concerned that you did not refer to the latest version that was sent, or perhaps you did not receive this. I ask you please to reach out to me directly with the booking ID so I can investigate and perhaps offer some restitution for your trouble. I hope I will hear from you and I hope we will have the privilege to provide a 5 star experience for you in the future,
