A nice experience
, Sep 2021
Unfortunately the Arc was being set up for the Christophe exhibition in a week so there was scaffolding and fencing at the top of the monument. Nevertheless I was able to take some great pictures at the top and there were few other people to hinder the view.
Stairs to no where
, Sep 2021
A LOT of stairs! Got to the top and there were no windows. I would have enjoyed it more from only the ground.
On the top of the arc

what you expect
, Aug 2020
Its exactly what you expect. Its views are great but the waiting then the stairs are a bit much. It's just shout worth while
No flexibility because of COVID 19. Very disappointed..,0

Sadly had to cancel our trip because of COVID 19 and this vendor would not let us cancel or move our reservation.

Due to the travel ban and the French government restricting gatherings to 100 people, my family and I were unable to go to France and attend this excursion. I contacted the company by email several days in advance with no response. When I clicked “manage my booking” it took me to a page that said “error, does not exist”. They never responded, emailed, Or remedied the situation at all. Terrible company, no customer service, and I would definitely NOT recommend to anyone looking for quality service while they travel.
Perfect visit starter
, Mar 2020
Excellent view. Worth it. As a first visit of the day it was perfect.i highly recommend but you need to be for for the stairs.
Not allowed to use tickets purchased
, Mar 2020
The tickets were from 10am to 10:30pm. I arrived at 9:00pm and was not allowed in. I tried to do a refund and was charged the full amount.
a great view at night
, Mar 2020
This is definitely worth the money you pay for it! (and is very reasonably priced), I had no clue you could actually go up the monument. Me and my partner went in the evening, and it was fantastic. You got to see the entire of the city at night, including great view of the Eiffel tower lit up. One of the best things to do in Paris in my opinion.
Did not see it
, Mar 2020
Unfortunately my fiance's mother passed away so we had to return to the uk and didn't manage to see it. Asked for refund but was refused by viator and the arc de triomphe
