We were very happy with our bookings with Viator. Unfortunately on the day of our booking to the eiffel, our train thalys from Amsterdam to Paris was broken down Nd we were stuck in the train for 6 hrs!! Our eiffel tickets were a waist! We contacted the number mentioned on the voucher and spoke to the supervisor. They did not help at all and conveniently said we have to buy new tickets. We expect better customer service! Please let me know how we can claim our amount back. We have paid almost ₹150 euros which is a big amount to loose. How Can Viator help ?? We have done couple of other bookings with you. Awaiting your reply

I would like a refund. Our tour guide left us and my friend was on crutches do to an accident during her travel the day before. Our tour guide didn’t even realize we fell behind and left us. Then when we got through security on the second floor they wouldn’t let her to the summit due to her being on crutches.

Great tour, meeting place was easy to find and tour guides ready to give out tickets. Escorted to the 2nd floor of the tower and then the guide did a short tour of each view point from the tower. We were then left to go to the summit alone and spend as long as we wanted. We did the 8pm tour and it was the perfect time to reach the top and see the sunset which was beautiful.

The pick up point was easy to find, and was a short walk to Eiffel. Our Tour guide Carol was fantastic. The wait time was essentially eliminated by the “Skip the Line Tour with Summit Access. Great views, and Carol pointed out many important monuments around Paris from a very enticing vantage. Great Tour, and I would recommend it.

Great experience! Must do in Paris. Skipped the long lane to get tickets but still waited about 1/2hr in line to get in. Then there was a line to get down as well. Totally fine, just be prepared to spend some time on excursion.

Paid to wait in line

The tour guide was nice but honestly this wasn’t worth the money. We paid to “Skip the line” and it still took an hour waiting on line to get in. Save the money wait on the line for free and treat yourself to lunch instead. Wasn’t pleased to wait on line when we paid to do the opposite.

You cancelled our tour right before we were to go at the redemption site. They said they cancelled the tour but they had a bunch of people going on the same tour. You lied to us and cheated us out of $338. You would be arrested for theft!

Francois was a lovely guide. He walked a steady pace and gave us enough information, but not too much! Very personable.
