Description:

Meet your local guide next to the Eiffel Tower for a brief and fascinating introduction that will give you the keys to enjoy Paris' most famous tower to the fullest. Your guide will then take you straight to the second level, bypassing the waiting lines on the ground.

On the second level, you will enjoy anecdotes about the Eiffel Tower and its unique history. You will also learn more about the City of Light, and see many of its highlights from above, including Notre Dame, the Louvre Museum, the Arc de Triomphe, and Les Invalides.

At the end of your guided tour, you will be free to continue exploring the Eiffel Tower on your own and ascend to the summit through a second elevator where even more breathtaking views await. Sip a glass of bubbly from the Champagne bar (own expense) while you admire Paris glittering below.

On your way down, be sure to stop at the first level and walk on new glass floor some 200 dizzying feet above the ground.

Alex was our entraining tour guide for our trek up to Eiffel. Gave tidbits about landmarks and kept it light despite the chilly wind and rain!

The main reason I wanted to make sure and send in this review, was to congratulate you on hiring such a great guide. I can't say enough wonderful things about Romain. Besides being an excellent tour guide, full of humor and very knowledgeable, he went above and beyond. We knew we would be walking everywhere in Paris, so my partner had brought his cane. We had it with us when we met Romain for the tour, only to find out that canes, and such, were not allowed in/on the Eiffel Tower. Romain was able to talk a near by shop owner into holding on to it until after we returned from the tour. Unfortunately the shop closed while we were walking back, but Romain was waiting for us with the cane. I just want to let him know how much we appreciated it!! Thank you!

Our tour guide was affable and studied. She seemed a bit nervous and moved a little too fast, but overall she gave us what we expected. The waits were longer than expected especially for a “skip-the-line” tour.

Meeting point was easy to find. Guide was friendly. Skip the line still took about an hour - which was fine. It was busy on Valentine’s Day! Up on the second level of the tower, I assumed our guide would explain more about the tower, and point out many more points of interest. He did point out some, but there are so many I thought he did not put much effort into the tour. Although I must say the view from level 2 is amazing. I also asked a couple of simple questions about the tower and he replied “I don’t know”. Cmon boy get on google if you don’t know. Afterwards my husband and I went up to the top. It was amazing. I can cross that off my “bucket list” now. WOW.

As someone who is not great with heights, the lift is a little bit daunting - especially the lift from the first platform to the next, but once you get up there, it is all worth it.

I went at night and WOW!

Instructions to meet the guide were simple and clear, and we left pretty much on time.

The guide took us through security and into the lift area, where we were given the choice to stay with him or to go off on our own.

Paying the extra for the skip the line was worth it, even though when I went it wasn't really much time saving, but I would guess at busier times it would be.

I highly recommend this tour, and especially at night!

Instructions how to obtain tickets were clear. Tour guide was ok but a little difficult to understand when he spoke quickly. A little standing around waiting for people to join group. Was able to self-tour once we had reached second floor. Amazing views in the evening (6pm tour) which made up for anything else lacking

I have done the exact same tour with another family member before. The experience is not the same. The no. Of guests with your guide were much less so the experience was more personal.

Tour guide's last day. He did not provide any technical background information about the building or operating of the tower. He voiced his own opinion that the tower was the least impressive sight to see in Paris.
