Must do!!!

Our guide was Florian. He was very knowledgeable and made the experience great. He knew so much about French history which put all of the sights in context. Tour lasts about 30 minutes and you can stay on the second level for as long as you lime after.
Guide excellent. Weather sucked!!!!

Our guide was simply outstanding but the weather not so much. Rained like the great flood! He did his very best to part the storm clouds but to no avail. Still had a blast. Even drenched to the bone !!!

We were there at 4:55 PM. 20 minutes before departure time but they had already left. I Called phone number provided for customer service and was told the tour guide decided to leave early for some unknown reason. I was hung up three times since they ran out of excuse as why the tour left earlier than scheduled time. Very rude!

This was an excellent way to get into the Eiffel Tower quickly and efficiently. Our guide Celina'-spelling? did a wonderful job explaining the sights from the second level. We did purchase an additional ticket for 6 euros to go to the top of the tower and it was very much worth it and the wait time was minimal. If we had had to wait in all the lines without our guide it would have been 3-4 hours to go through the whole process. With her, it was about 40 minutes.

Our guide, Ofelia, was energetic and excited to share history about the Eiffel Tower. I am glad we went with a guide because she pointed out many things about Paris that I wouldn't have seen from the top. The Eiffel Tower is a must-see and skip-the-line leaves your day open for other things.

We met the tour guide at the designated spot. He was a young guy but very knowledgeable about Pari in general and Eiffel Tower in particular. This option is worth the money instead of waiting hours in the long queues. The guide gave us a lot of info about the Eiffel tower.

It was a hot, sticky day and finding the meeting point was not easy but we managed. The guide was very friendly and enthusiastic. The view from the Tower is, of course, amazing.

Great tour and with the quick pass tickets it was very fast and smooth to go through the security even with our family of small children with 2 strollers. The tour guide was well informed and kept us together. Even though we have been to the Eiffel tower before this was our first tour and it was worth it to get an understanding of the history of the tower as well as to see and get an understanding of the various areas of Paris that you can see from up above.

We only booked this tour because tickets were not available from the official website and we did not want to risk waiting in line for many hours. The tour is expensive so plan ahead and get advance tickets if you can . To be fair, the guide was fine. the tour was for the second level only. We would have liked to have gone up to the summit but that was considerably more expensive as a tour and unavailable at the time and probably not worth it. The glass floor on the second level is highly overated in my opinion and have seen much much better glass floors at higher locations/ glass bridge in Langkawi Malaysia. But an Eiffel visit is a must do in Paris. Reach early to get to the souvenir shop by asking around.
