Nice visit to the top. The only flaw I would change is that to validate the purchased tickets it was necessary to go near a bar 600 meters away from the Eiffel Tower 10 minutes before the set time to get on. Too bad that no one was there at the appointed time. They arrived 30 minutes late compared to the agreed time and I had the concern that they wouldn't let me get on board because I missed the established time.

Unfortunately, the guide was very unfriendly at first, after which he allegedly did not find us. So that we could only start the tickets and the ascent to the Eiffel Tower almost an hour later. They also don't have their own office, so you just stand at the address on the street! Not recommended unfortunately. And very rude on site !!!!

The guide was on time and easy to find. The young lady brought us quickly and accurately to our destination, gave us all the important information along the way and then left us unspectacularly. Access to the tower was as easy as requested! A great experience! Unfortunately, we could not do the Seine tour for health reasons, but we were told that the tickets are valid for a whole year! Super Service!
