Excellent tour well worth doing. I really rate it 4 1/2 stars. It loses half a point because the group was just a bit large for us to all hear the guide at all times. We had 23 in our group and for some of the time it was not possible to hear. The addition of head sets and a microphone for the guide would give this 5 stars for me.

I have to say that your staff is very professional and friendly. On the day of the tour me and my daughter were 15 mins late due to disruptions on the trains. I was in such a panic and was sure we had missed our tour. We still hurried to the meeting point where I saw the wonderful staff wearing the yellow berets. They were so kind and helpful and understanding it calmed me down. The Tour itself was very good and interesting. The Tour guide Eric Rannou was very welcoming too, and explained how to use our tickets and how to get around the tower. I’m glad I booked through you guys, I will not hesitate to book other tours with you guys.

The Eiffel tower tour was a joy. Hafid was our tour guide, and he quickly got us through the security check, then up the elevator to the second floor. He was very personable, entertaining, and easy to understand. The process of booking the tour and meeting up was easy. My wife and I were able to book the tour at 3:00AM and start our tour at 9:15AM the same morning. We made it to the top level pretty early in the day, so we had plenty of time after to explore more of Paris.
