WOW! We weren't sure what to expect when we arrived at the Arc but it is massive and sits in the middle of the busiest area ever. You take an underground tunnel to get to it (no way to cross all the traffic going around it) and because we had skip the line passes, we went right in. It is a long walk up but the view from the top is wonderful! You can see so much of Paris, including the Eiffel Tower!

We went on a rainy day but it was still awesome. There wasn't much of a line. The site is stunning, the shops in the area and the people watching from there is just great.

Great seeing Arc de Triomphe and climbing the steps to the terrace and seeing the view of Paris. Skip the line ticket was so seamless instead of waiting in the queue.

No lines to wait in. Excellent tour. Be careful it is all steps to the top and we were stuck behind someone that had a very hard time going up them.

Well I've discovered muscles I didn't know that we had. There is access for those who are physically incapable of the stairs. We're not super fit, so don't freak out you CAN do it. Its worth it just to get a bird's eye view of the traffic on the round about 😳😬🤣🤣🤣

Incredible views from the top. The internal staircase was amazing, totally worth climbing the 284 stairs... Very interesting history.

I enjoyed this tour. Skip-the-Line saved a lot of time. The perspective from the rooftop gave a panoramic view of the city.

We liked that we could do this tour anytime of the day that fit our schedule. We got right in without having to wait long and it was a great experience. Be prepared for LOTS of stairs! Great workout!

My friend and I loved visiting the Arc de Triomphe, great views but be prepared to walk a lot of stairs. Unfortunately, we had brought "skip the line tickets" but when we got arrived there was no line for "skip the line" and when we tried to ask a guard and show him the ticket for skip the line he didn't know what we meant (only knew a couple of English words) and we had to go in the public line. Lucky being September (the end of the peak season) the line wasn't to long and I think we only had to line up for around 15/20 minutes. So if your going in September I wouldn't even worry about "skip the line tickets" just buy a normal ticket from the ticket office and line up (don't waste your money like us). Sadly, we booked this months before so we didn't know what it would be like.

Got to the Arc and they didn't accept the ticket. Viator had been a good experience previously. Ruined my Paris experience this time. Very disappointed!!
