Claire (the guide) was friendly and funny, she explained us about the history of the Effeil Tower and once up there all about the monuments around the city. We also had the opportunity to get till the top, what else to say ... an heartbreaking view! After visiting the Effeil Tower, we also took the cruise during the afternoon. If you are visiting Paris is something you need to do! We were lucky as the weather was sunny even if it was cold so we could enjoy it the most. On winter time, just ensure you are well dressed up because it gets pretty cold up the tower and in the cruise is very windy. Overall I would say the experience was worthy for the money we paid :)

We had a very rainy visit and our guide stopped us a few times on the way to say he'd usually talk about this/that here but he would tell us later when we found a drier spot, we never got the intro talk promised and half our group were missing before we reached the 2nd level.

It was worth booking this to skip the queue at the Eiffel Tower. The guide was friendly and gave a quick talk at each side of the tower before leaving us to it. I wouldn’t recommend the cruise. There was no skipping the queue, which was horrendous, and the audio commentary was not worth the effort.
