      Maria and Harald Bernhart, Mannheim We had booked a visit to the Eiffel Tower on September 17, 2021 with a guided tour. On the website, among other things, it is advertised that long queues can be avoided with this booking. The fact is that only 1 elevator was available that day and we had to wait about 1 hour in the normal queue. The guide was not to be envied as she had to keep the whole group happy. She did it very sympathetically and with dedication.
