What people are saying about Eiffel Tower
Our guide (Rene) was very passionate about history and culture and made this ascension very pleasant and instructive. Very nice visit! Although we had booked for summit, we were denied access, but that obviously was not our guide's fault. We were quickly reimbursed for that part.
Really glad we decided to go for the tour, instead of by ourselves. Katie, our guide, was hilarious as she entertained and informant us about French history, the buildings, some basic French lessons, geography of Paris, as well as a ton of information about the Eiffel Tour. Her enthusiasm and love of knowledge were a fantastic asset to this tour. We stayed after the tour and watched the lights go on after dark. A must do.
It was a very hot day. Our guide was informative and cheerful despite this. She was lovely and I would recommend her to anyone.
Great experience highly recommend doing this when in Paris our guide was Yousuf and he was very entertaining was an excellent guide with great knowledge of the tower and it’s history really is one of the best guides to have for this tour would defanitly would do it again when I come to Paris next time and will reccommend it to anyone travelling to Paris
Worth it because with the tour the Eiffel tower becomes a vivid monument not only a huge metal edifice.
