After a little confusion on where to meet our tour guide, we thoroughly enjoyed this experience. The guide was very informative and the tour was relaxed and interesting. Thank you
Starting at the architecture museum and walking the long courtyard to get to the tower was a lot of unnecessary steps for the visit. And, at the end, we were left needing to retrace those steps to get back to the metro stop (or so we thought). Also, our guide was just learning English and could be understood if you could see her mouth. But when she walked ahead of you, was difficult to understand. You might try for a tour that starts right from the hop-on-hop-off stop right in front of the tower.
The meeting place was a little tricky to find so I would recommend going a little earlier. Be sure to bring a sweater or jacket if it is a cool night because it gets cold. We walked to the Eiffel tower from the meeting point. The tour guide was great. Very knowledgeable and funny. The only waiting on this tour was to take the elevator to the lookout point. Would recommend during this tour at night - the view is so pretty with all the lights.
We booked for the top floor tour of the Eiffel. They took us to the 2nd floor, and challenged us to show where it was mentioned about the top floor tour. Indeed to our dismay, we couldn’t find this mentioned anywhere on our confirmation. There were a few more in our group with the same problem. Beware of the cheaters, Viator! You took us for a real ride here !
Great tour. Guide was very knowledgeable and interacted well with the group.Skip the line was legit. Great experience.
Our guide Phillips was wonderful. Full of knowledge and passion. We had a little trouble finding the meeting point. Overall it was great
Our guide was very knowledgeable! She gave us time for pictures but still kept things moving along smoothly. There were some elevator issues once we arrived at the tower but she made sure to get us were we needed to be and made it feel like no issue at all! We really enjoyed the entire experience.
Leye was a wonderful guide! He kept our group of 24 informed and entertained. He did an exceptional job explaining the history of the tower, sites around it and information about Paris. Highly recommend...check the weather before going. It can be very cold and windy on the 2nd floor.
Arrived early but had received no meeting point information. The Eiffel Tower was crowded. My first time in Paris so unsure where to go. Tourist centre staff were helpful and said these tours are run by a private company who wear ‘blue’ jackets. It was night time so not much help as everyone had blue/black jackets! Of course I missed the tour. Very disappointed. Why wasn’t detailed meeting point info emailed to me??
The tour was “OK”. The young lady who was our tour guide did a great job. However, the meeting location was a long walk to the Tower. I would only recommend this tour if you have a lot of time to burn at night and if you don’t have people in your party with mobility issues.
Great view of both ET and city at night. Was a bit difficult to connect with our guide at the stated location due to the crowds. Expect to encounter a lot of street vendors.
Hugo,our guide was extremely personable,knowledgeable,and entertaining.We learned so much and hada most enjoyable experience.We would definitely recommend this tour.
Great evening walk to the Eiffel Tower At night to catch plenty of beautiful photos. Loved the “skip the line” access. Tour guide was great. And you can even get champagne and macaroons to purchase when you are up in the Tower to make it a truly magical and romantic evening.
The meeting point was super easy to find. We got lucky because there was no one on the Eiffel Tower when we went late at night. It was our group and one other. The guide was amazing I learned a lot about the Eiffel Tower.
One of the better parts of this tour was the guide and her information. I am sorry to not recall her name but she was well informed. We met at a point in Trocadero across the river, and although we walked all the way over to the tower from there, it was full of information along the way that did not make it seem inconvenient as it might have otherwise looked. We were admitted swiftly in as a group and took elevator to second level. Although the sun was setting when we started the tour, the night time lights were great by the time we made it up the tower. It started to rain a bit while we were up there but the guide continued to provide information and answer many questions. Once you break apart, you can go elsewhere in the tower and they have some food items on the second level. The exit line for the elevator down was long, so we opted to take the stairs all the way down and a thigh work out to be sure. Once you exit, you will have a barrage of trinket sellers on all sides of the tower. Practice saying no thanks, or you will go broke by the time you make it back to the streets. So sorry I don't remember the female tour guide's name.
Guide was entertaining and smart. Well done. Fun to see Eiffel Tower at Night. My son and I enjoyed the tour.
Our tour guide Wil, was very knowledgeable, friendly and personable. He got us in quickly with no delays and was happy to spend extra time answering questions. (The lines were very long and the tour was well worth the money) It was a delightful evening thanks to Wil!
Our guide, Will, kept our attention with great facts and stories. This was a wonderful way to spend a summer evening in Paris.
