    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.

    Was very well organised except I would say read the information on how to obtain your ticket Cos we just queued up in the security queue and went through and thought our tickets were already on our app but you have to find your guide outside in the garden before you go in the security. The actual tour was really good and the guide was lovely x

    This was an amazing way to experience the Eiffel Tower, but be prepared to climb 669 steps total! You take the steps to the first level, which has places to eat as well as a famous clear glass floor (in certain areas) to walk on and experience. You also take a break before you climb to the second level! Once you climb to the second level you get amazing views of the entire city! Our guide was so knowledgeable on giving us the history of the Eiffel Tower!
