We had to be at the office 15 minutes earlier. We followed our quide, we skipped the lines and then we went directly to the second floor with the elevator. The maximum persons in the elevator were 52, so we were all together since our group was up to 15 persons. The guide was amazing, he was smiling, he was friendly, he showed us the Paris, he told us about the history and he gave us many information (I think he is from Argentina and he speaks Spanish too) We spent us much time as we want on the tour.

Everything went according to plan. Our tour was rescheduled, but we received proper communication. The tour guide (Hugo) was very friendly and guided us to the second floor. The explanation he gave was in a typical French style which we liked a lot. Yes, it is correct the access is more expensive but at least we got to the top. Without this reservation it would not have been possible. Maybe next time it should be possible also to have a cheaper price because we payed the full amount for 2 kids. But overall we are very pleased.

Our guide provided excellent information. The venue was very crowded. Even with this tour it took us an hour to get through security and then another 20 minutes to get to the elevator to the second level. We paid extra to go to the summit and it is worth it. The views are amazing. We had to wait an additional 20 minutes for the elevator to the summit. We opted to walk down to avoid the lines at the elevators.
