The tour was not as it states. You only skip the big line you still wait in line for about 20 minutes to get onto the lift. Where your jammed in with about 100 people.Your died doesn’t go to the summit so you have to wait in another 30 minutes line. The only saving grace was that you were at the Eiffel Tower.

We had a wonderful instructor. She was full of personality and told us a lot of history which was awesome! The views were amazing and skip the line was worth it all! We went in the evening to see the sunset which was a great time to go! The skip the line really helped us have more time to see other things in our day.

Amazing tour. Ines was our tour guide. She was so knowledgeable, passionate and enthusiastic while giving us info about the Eiffel Tower. We learned so much! She was really nice and patient. She also recommended many places for us to check out while staying in Paris. I definitely recommend the tour.

Skip the line is not true.Hard to keep up and hear guide

Our tour guide Micheal was very nice, knowledgable, funny and patient. However, I would recommend headsets as we had on other tours. It was extremely hard to hear him. We also had to wait in a queue and so the 'skip the queue' portion was not true. We had a skip the queue tour in the Louvre and it really was true.Not sure why this did not happen on this eiffel tower tour. It was also extremely hard to stay with the group, the guide moved fast through large crowds, would be hard for guests that are slower/older

Hot day at Eiffel Tower

The views from the second and third levels were excellent. The 97 degree temperature was difficult. The skip the line was still 90 minutes or more to get from first security to second level. Solange was a pleasant tour guide. We had originally had a tour at 8:30, which was canceled. A second tour scheduled at 2:30, was also canceled, but we were moved to 5:30.

Brilliant trip with daughter

The best part of our trip my daughter says. Our guide Carolina was fantastic, really interesting talk that was about 20 mins long once we were on the second floor. Great to walk straight past the endless queues and straight into the lift! Easy to find the meeting point at the souvenir shop in google maps, it’s5 mins from the Eiffel Tower. I would highly recommend!

The top was closed even though we bought a ticket for it. Our guide assured us that the top would be open to us but it wasn’t. I feel she intentionally lied to us. We should have been offered a partial refund.

Bait and switch
Bridget_E
, Jul 2022
We booked this tour about 10 days in advance. It was recommended by a friend who went through it and had a wonderful time. About three days prior to the time the tour operator texted me saying that the location is changing or I could move to another time because they oversold. I couldn’t change the time so I was forced to move to the new location. The person giving us the tour could barely speak English and it was her second day on the job so it made it incredibly boring. Of the two hours on site, we could spend about 45 minutes working with the bread so it was bearable. Very few of the bread makers or the front counter staff at the location we went to could speak English. We were at CHEZ MANON 25 Rue de Bretagne. Be sure to ask them about your tour guide, find the one mentioned in recent reviews and insist on them.. and insist on the proper location.

Hello Bridget, We hope this message finds you well. I believe you are reviewing the wrong tour, this is the Eiffel Tower visit and not a food tour. Thank you, Alexis

Had a great experience. The meetingpoint was easy to find and the guide was great. She did a lovely job in showing us around and informing us in a fun and enlightening way. And skipping the line was definetly worth it! :D
