Full description

Catch your breath at the provided rest stops and see a side of the Eiffel Tower you would miss if you took the elevator. Upon arrival at the first level, take a well-earned break. Stand on the new glass floor, and explore the interactive exhibit telling the story of the monument's construction.

Your guide will be waiting for you on the steps, holding a flag and a blue sign with the City Wonders logo for easy identification.

The tour was fine, but it just took way too long to check in every person. Check-in needed to happen 2 or 3 times, which just slowed things down tremendously. Our tour guide was Ami, and he was really good. Funny and tried to keep things light - despite all the repeated checks!

Our tour guide, Melina, was wonderful. She was both knowledgeable and personable. I have 4 stars for two reasons… First was because the meeting point instructions could have been a bit clearer. It also said that the guide would be holding a sign that said “Eiffel Towers” but she was actually holding a small blue flag with something else written on it. I think it was the company name but that information was not in the meeting point instructions. Second was because it was a bit hard to hear and understand with the mask and accent. Overall we were very pleased with the tour and would happily do it again if we ever return to Paris.

The tour was very well done and informative!!! The knowing guide gave us a lot of information about the monuments around the Eiffel Tower. What was not good is the imprecise meeting point, then the guide was not dressed in blue and had no flag with "Get your Guide". She was wearing something different and a small flag with "Paris Tourist..." - that's why we were looking for her for a very long time. It's also funny that you still have to exchange the tickets and have to stand in line like the others - so theoretically you could also go there "normally" (much cheaper).
