Absolutely loved this tour, only annoying thing was the times of the meeting place.
It was stated 8.15am but the Eiffel Tower doesn't open until 9.30am so was abit of a wait. Tour guide was brilliant and had a brilliant experience.

Met tour off site one block. Tour guides took a minute to separate our group into the right language groups but the tour went great, tour guide informative. Would recommend this tour.

Guide was late and disorganised. We were booked for 8.00 am only to find out tower lifts only started at 9.00. Guide was no more than an usher, getting us to the right place. We still had to wait in line for over an hour. Paid over €50 each for a ticket with a face value of €16.50 + €15.00 for the boat trip. Not worth it.

It was a complete joke as all were saying.You provided nothing additional to normal tickets and we pay you a lot of money for nothing.We stayed in all the queues as anybody else...There was no skip the line...We pay you 60 euros more for nothing...

The guide did not show up to designated location, nor could we find him/her at Eiffel grounds. We called Viator customer service and they could not locate guide, number provided was not being answered. We had to get in a long line with 2 small children to get our tickets. Siene tour never happened either. Horrible experience. Find more reputable provider.

First, Waited forever to get into the Eiffel Tower for them to purchase tickets for over 100 people. I was told that I had to purchase adult tickets for this tour (12 and up) they purchased kid tickets for my 12 and 17 year old girls and basically pocketed the extra! Also, never found our tour guide when we made it up! Don’t think he showed up and the entire group just did their own thing. Don’t waste your money, just get a more organized company with a smaller group.

The guide was 45 min late. We were told to be there at 7:45 or we would be late and getting thru security takes 30 min and latecomers would be left. They got there at 8:15. We were one of several couples waiting. When they got there they were unprofessional and didn’t really address us they were only interested in putting out all of the displays stored overnight in the souvenir store. The “guide” was disheveled didn’t have his pants pulled up and was a poor communicator going back and forth unable to even stand still.
The orgainizer wasn’t much better. While telling us what was allowed he mentioned guns and then made a “joke” asking if anyone was American. I did not find that funny at all. I didn’t appreciate his comment. I didn’t spend money to be insulted. There were all kinds of questionable people accosting you to buy a light up model of the tower. All of the people there were unfriendly. The view was great but EVERYTHING else wasn’t worth it. If you are an American look for the company Viator has employed and don’t use Universal Tour Guide. I felt so strongly I even called Viator and told them about them.
