Easy to find the meeting point (look around the corner of the cafe, not at the front). We got to skip the line and it was a quick elevator ride all the way to the summit! The views were incredible and we got great pictures. The cruise was also very nice but we wish we had known to bring ear buds to listen to the audio guide (accessible to anyone on your own phone via the boats wifi). This experience was a great way to start off our trip in Paris!

Everything was very clear, read the description well. Met the guide close to the tower, she brought us up and then we were on our own. Boat was large ferry: I would suggest strongly not to be the last people on the boat, we ended up having to sit inside instead of on top. If I could go back in time, I would have gotten dinner to go and eaten on the boat. We finished our tours and got off just before the tower sparkled. Perfect.

Hi, It was quite inconvenient to go to 45 Avenue and gather with other people to go to the tower. The ticket should have QR code or a bar code so security can check at the gate and let me in. Why do people need to go to 45 Avenue, wait, before going to the tower?
