Eiffel Tower: Our Tips

Avoiding the queues

As you know, Paris is quite the popular holiday destination. Plan ahead if you want to jump around and see the Eiffel Tower from lots of angles. It's easy to buy tickets online and go straight to the top -- but if you're looking to do Paris on the cheap, remember to plan waiting time at major monuments into your itinerary.

Watch your stuff

Lots of travelers are looking for a cafe or restaurant nearby these views, where they can relax and regroup away from the crowds. While all the major tourist areas are safe enough, tourists tend to let their guard down as soon as they order a café au lait. As always, zip up your purse and watch out for thieves.

Slyvie, our guide, was so knowledgeable. A great experience!

The whole experience was hassle free from a money back booking to actually getting into the tower. Sylvie was so knowledgeable about the history of Paris, and also made our experience fun and enjoyable, we all learned so much in such a short time. Thank you Sylvie I would definitely seek you out for other tours of Paris.

Convenient way to collect tickets and be guided in the right direction

Guide brilliant. Sites excellent. Skip the line made our waiting time less. A good way to get all your tickets in one place.

It was a very informative, engaging, and fun tour.

Sylvie was great. She was very interesting to both adults and children. She also was able to answer all of my questions and stayed until all group members were done asking questions. I would definitely book this tour to avoid lines during high season and, of course, to learn from a great guide like Sylvie.
