The wait is long, but...

The wait is long, but very worth it to get a view of all of Paris, a special and enjoyable experience
Eiffel Tower Summit visit
, Aug 2022
Going to the summit. It was spectacular. What a view of the city. However, it was very crowded. I guess that means it’s popular.
Panoramic Paris: Eiffel Tower
, Aug 2022
Beautiful views of Paris. Our guide, Santiago, did a fabulous job guiding us through the lines to get us into the tower quickly. He gave an excellent talk about the tower and other notable features of Paris. We had plenty of time to explore the 2nd & 3rd levels. Breathtaking experience!
Tour guide was terrific...

Tour guide was terrific Very nice and informative We did wait on long lines everywhere however I would clarify you’re skipping ticket line so people budget enough time to avoid anxiety
A very nice experience
, Aug 2022
The experience was awesome. Emma, our guide, was super friendly and the quick tour on both the tower and it's surrounding view very informative. The experience delivered everything it advertised
Great trip up Eiffel Tower
, Aug 2022
Some queuing but a lot less than had we not got fast track ticket. Fantastic views from each of the 3 levels. Mauro, our guide, was extremely knowledgeable.
Valuable tour for first timers
, Aug 2022
Great tour guide, Beatriz was funny, informative. Made it interactive and interesting for the kids too. Highly suggest if first timers to use a guide, just worry to get to the meeting point in time then follow your guide.
Not worth it unless you are desperate
, Aug 2022
The title is very misleading. You will skip no lines via this tour. Also the word "tour" is used very liberally. The tour guide doesn't provide much info on the tour and its not until we arrived on the second level that we were given a 3 to 5 quick facts about the tower. One being hey see those things...those are lights...... The only reason to pay double the normal ticket price is because this company buys a chunk and might be your only option to go to the summit. Only reason I gave this 2 stars.
An absolute must do and pay for the skip the line, it is worth it.
, Aug 2022
Skipping the lines was worth every penny. Even with the skip the lines there was time spent in line going through security (twice) and waiting for the elevator. Our guide shepherded us through the process to get us to the second level and the explained how to get to the summit and back again. He recommended that we visit the first level on the down, which we did. The tour operator offered discounted Seine River Cruise tickets which we accepted. The River Cruise was very nice and definitely worth the time and expense.
Excellent tour!
, Aug 2022
Mauro was awesome! Interesting stories and very knowledgeable. We were through the lines so quickly! Highly highly recommend!
Disappointed and frustrated with wait time
, Aug 2022
Although the tour promoted priority access/skip the line, we still had to wait over an hour before getting to the first elevator at the base of the tower.
Mattias at the Eiffel Tower

This was our first trip to Paris. Our experience at the Eiffel Tower was great. The tour company was wonderful. Our host, Mattias, was well versed and had a great sense of humour.
Worth the price!

Make sure you do this
, Aug 2022
Tour was amazing. You got to go to the very top and then have a drink on the 1st level. Presley did an awesome job telling us the history of the tower and city.
An up close and personal Eiffel tower experience!
, Aug 2022
Emma was an excellent , informative tour guid. My only regret was the longgg lines to the sommit. I conquered what I came for!
Me at the Top
, Aug 2022
I enjoyed the guide and the information, but standing at the top was the thing. Me in the shadow with Paris behind me is the picture.
Beatriz was a great host
, Aug 2022
Our experience with this tour was more than great. Beatriz was very well informed and managed to get the kids attention.
The best way to visit the top of Eiffel!
, Aug 2022
I can’t recommend this enough, if you want to visit the top of the Eiffel Tower the queues will be a challenge, with these tickets we were never really held up, straight past the long queues and through security without any fuss. Our tour guide Sebastian was a really cool Argentinian guy who has perfected the balance of being informative about the tower and never going on and on! He guided us to the second level and from there we could make our own way to the top. We were all looking forward to going to the tower but aware how busy it would be in the height of summer, it couldn’t have gone more smoothly for us. Thank you!
Great tour
, Aug 2022
