We found this tour to be very organized and professional but also fun and informative. Our tour guide, Adrielle, is funny and has a wonderful personality. She took the time to share interesting aspects of the towers history, construction and impact on Paris. I highly recommend this tour!

the best way to get past the crowds and also get a little information about the city and history of the tower. our guide Marsela was very engaging and friendly and took pictures for our group then let us enjoy the rest of our time self-exploring. It was perfect!

I can neither climb long flights of stairs nor stand in queues. Thankfully, the Eiffel Tour company have a solution for this. Rock up (or hobble up, if you're me) and ask a member of staff about where to buy your access ticket. They are all very helpful. We were able to buy a ticket for a specific timeslot. There was a bit of a wait, but we found a bench and a drinks kiosk (drinks not cheap but, hey-ho, we were on holiday). There was a little bit of queuing, but not too much, and then we were whisked up to the second floor in a lift. Very much worth doing!

Similar to other reviews, the tour meeting point is not inside the Tower but in a random cafe spot outside about 10-12 min walk away Had a small emergency and arrived a few minutes late but there is NO flexibility so if you are looking to book a tour without stringent no refunds, no changes, and inflexible customer service,

I would recommend to others to avoid using any tour that uses this agency, [Europe Tourisme].

We called the customer service to ask them if we can meet either inside the Tower which we were already at or somewhere in between the initial contact point and the Tower and the customer service person was not helpful and just told us to rush back to the original meeting point at which point they had already left and the customer service person refused to do anything further.

You are that desperate to take customer money for services that you do not provide?!?

Got to the tower and joined the outside security queues,I am all for heightened security these days but not when one agent is in a go slow and another two are letting people jump through the barriers because they have reservations with the restaurant...here's a novel idea...get there early if you are having a meal!!!!
The summit was shut due to a strike so lots in our party were disappointed and will need to sort a refund,being honest climbing the montpernasse tower was more satisfying and gave a better view

We booked this tour through trip advisor once we found we couldn't get tickets to visit the tour. The tour was good, our guide Solume spoke 4 languages and was just generally awesome. The issue arises at the value, and we feel we were ripped off after buying the Champagne and Macaroons experience. First off, we were told we could get this at the summit by the tour person upon check-in.Turns out that isn't true, and it took us an hour to queue up for the elevator just to be turned away by the bar staff. Secondly, and far worse than that, the Champagne and Macaroons experience cost 25€ per person. And you're happy to pay that if you have never been to the tower before (ie, a tourist). Unfortunately, once you line up and get to the counter, you realise that had you not bought the experience and just bought the 2 macaroons in a paper bag and a champagne in a plastic glass, you would pay 16€. That's a 9€ rip-off. Really can only be described as a tourist trap.

Go ahead and buy a ticket to the tour, buy say no to anything else, it's a trap.

We booked the tour 3 months in advance and they notified us it was cancelled 2 weeks before our trip, allegedly due to a system error. Which they failed to notice for two and a half months. No notice, no alternative booking. Just cancelled. Still waiting for our refund. So, yes, terrible.

Make sure you read all of the details here! I missed the part that (clearly) stated that the tour does NOT begin at the Eiffel Tower. My husband and I ended up waiting ~30 mins for the ticket booth to open up before I found my mistake. I called immediately, and while they did say they would see what they could do, they ended up charging us to book another tour. Nevertheless, our tour guide, Ricardo, was incredibly knowledgeable and very interesting. We asked lots of questions and he was happy to cater his responses to our obvious interest levels. 10/10 would recommend Ricardo again!

WARNING!! I booked well in advance of our trip to Paris and now that we are here, I get a notice they cancelled our reservation without any explanation. Now I am unable to get tickets because the Eiffel Tower is completely sold out for our duration. Super disappointed not to mention my teenager who is visiting Paris for the first time.

Well organised. Our guide mauro was fantastic. It was the first thing we did on our trip and gave an excellent overview of the city and it's history before we made our own way. Even my 12 year old disengaged son said it was good!!
