Traveler Tips

  • "It’s always best to prebook any attraction you don’t want to miss or queue up for hours, however in this case we were starting our tour very early in the morning so the queue wasn’t that long anyway." See review
  • "There are restrooms on the second level as well as places to eat and a gift shop." See review
  • "You could definitely see the Eiffel Tower without a guide, but if you don't want to wait in long lines, this is the way to go." See review

Riding the elevator to the top provided amazing cures of Paris. This was a bucket list event to help celebrate 50 years of marriage.

Nice guide but not a great tour.
, Aug 2021
Don’t want to sound too harsh here but this tour was pretty so-so. The guide herself was clearly a very nice person. We had to wait in line for some time – I guess that will be put down to Covid – but then got quickly to the Second level where she reeled off a laundry list of interesting facts – and then left. Three learning points for me: A) Even in Covid times – recognising we are now 18 months or more in - it would simply be better to give people a heads up that all lines simply cannot be skipped. B) When people arrive at the second floor, the very first natural thing they want to do is walk around and take some pictures. To have to stand in a single group for 30 minutes or so and listen to a list of – admittedly somewhat interesting – facts in rapidfire succession is not a formula for success. Appreciate the retort to this will be that once people have scatteted, they are difficult to pull together. That, in my opinion, would be something to find a solution for. Headphones for example. Agreed meet 15 mins later for those still interested. C) Whilst waiting for the tour to start, it was clear that the three tour personnel did not get along at all, were at times clearly visibly upset, arguing. Not really any business of ours as ’the paying customer’ but came over somewhat unprofessional nevertheless.

This is one of the best reviews I have every received, in spite of the low rating. You are thoughtful and fair in your recounting of your experience and have given me, as the general manager, a lot to work with in making improvements to what we do. I really appreciate it. In fact many of the things you mention are not usually the case at all, as you can see in the thousands of 5 star reviews we receive! And so, I would love to know what was the date of your visit, who was the guide etc so I can purposefully address your points in a constructive way and be fully proactive in my efforts. I would love to hear from you and in any case thank you again for taking the time to share your

Nobody present at the right place on time...9.15 expected but 11 am beginnig the visit... and Not possible to go to the summit !
icon Response from Host , Aug 2021
Thank you so much for leaving us this feedback, it is very helpful. We have no control over when the summit may be open or closed, as this is to the discretion of the Eiffel staff, but also we have checked our vouchers to make sure the time is correct to prevent this kind of misunderstanding in the future. Thank you again and we wish you safe travels, Linda

It was great. Totally worth it. Just know the meeting spot is a guy outside the tower with a sign that says tours. It doesn't say Viator.
Great Guided Tour
, Jul 2021
This guided tour was so amazing. Our guide David was absolutely wonderful. Full of information and so kind and pleasant. The great thing about this is the personalized experience, only 12 of us on the tour, and you get to visit the 3rd observation tower. The signage to check in outside was a bit confusing because it told us to look for someone with and orange flag with something specific on it but it was with someone else so I’m glad they were on the lookout but if it was crowded I would have passed them up. Again, David was great and such a great tour.

Hi David, Thank you so much for your kind words and this 5 star review. Your guide, David, is indeed a treasure and I'm so glad you enjoyed your experience with us. I also want to thank you for the feedback about the meeting point and we will endeavor to make this more clear for all our special guests like you! Safe travels and thanks again! Linda
