Great tour with guide Amira!
, Sep 2021
Walked to 2nd floor which was a little tiring but fun. Then lift to top. Amira was a guide that we would recommend. Perfect experience.
3rd time was the charm!

This was 3rd time I have been on Eiffel Tower. This was the most helpful and relevant tour thanks to out tour guide! On this tour, I was able to go to the summit and view Paris as I had always hoped! Thanks Viator!

Eiffel Tower climb
, Sep 2021
Tour was a nice way to get access to Eiffel Tower. Guide was well informed about the Eiffel Tower and tried to tell interesting stories about the monuments you could see from it. Some of it was inaccurate and took a bit of artistic license but overall friendly guide that tried to share their insights on the City of Lights

I am very happy to hear all of these things! Thanks for the great review and I would love to know who is the guide who earned this 5 star rating : ) Feel free to reach out with his/her name and in any case, thanks so much, Linda
Sara Cortinas is a great tour guide.
, Aug 2021
Sara was an excellent tour guide. Very knowledgeable, friendly and attentive. The biggest negative was the beginning of the tour was complete chaos, while we were all mustering. Too many people, with no clear direction from the tour coordinator on who was assigned to each group. Tour guides were showing up at intervals and just taking random batches of people and leading them away. Very disorganized. Once we broke free of initial gaggle, it was a good tour
Great tour guide and beautiful experience
, Jul 2021
The view was amazing!!! Breathtaking and crossed off my bucket list!! Our tour guide was great! She knew her stuff! Her name was Leidy and her accent brought a little spice to the tour which we enjoyed. The meeting spot and schedule time was on point. Everything was well organized and we were lucky enough to only have a few people in our group. I would definitely recommend this tour.

Greetings! Your 5 Star review is everything I could hope for and I am so happy to hear you found us organized and professional and especially happy to hear you enjoyed your "spicy" tour guide, Leidy : ) I hope the rest of your visit to Paris was great and I hope we will see you again! Linda
Pinnacle of Paris with Henry
, Jul 2021
Well worth it! We took the climbing tour to the second platform and the elevator to the summit. Henry, our tour guide, did a great job shuffling us through the lines and giving us room to explore and take in the view on our own. After reaching each platform, he told us short, fascinating stories and unknown facts about the tower (total monolog time: circa 60min) . Normally we don't take guided tours because we like to do our own thing, but this one was a great surprise. Thanks Henry!!!

Hi! I am glad Henry was able to convert you to being a fan of guided tours : ) Thanks for this 5 Star review and I hope we will have the privilege to host you again sometime. Safe travels, Linda

Tamar is excellent. We enjoyed her sense of humor, knowledge and encouragement as we climbed the stairs.
Better than expected

Julia, our guide, was very knowledgeable and did a great job to make the experience great! We did not get to go to the summit because of wind but it did not matter. We had a wonderful time!
Eiffel Tour

Tried to make my initial trip to the tour and was running late. I called the operator and they told me that my tour would start 12:30 and not 9:30 due to a closure. Sure, that is not the tour company’s fault. I wanted to be notified because had I not been running late I would have showed up and been annoyed my tour would start between 2-3 hours later. They offered me a refund or a rescheduling since I was not willing to wait 2-3 for the tour as we had planned other things in the afternoon. They rebooked no problem and got a receipt for it. They texted me later on saying the Eiffel was closed for the week now due to a strike. I gave them 4/5 starts because it’s got to he extremely hard to run this business and deal with the back and forth.
