The partner host Paris Trips did a great job. When they say to be there at a certain time, don’t worry about being early. The window of time given is plenty. You checkin and await your guide who takes the group to the Tour Eiffel and navigates the security lines and entrances. On our morning the scheduled guide fell on her way and was unable to proceed. No problem, Arnoud stepped in and gave us a great tour and information about Paris and neighborhoods. We had a wonderful time and stayed as long as we liked, and enjoyed being at the summit. We went for lunch at a neighborhood bistro and then went to the river cruise. We would use Paris Trips again.

The office staff was really kind and helpful. We received all information very detailed. The tour itself was also great. Thierry took us through check-in very fast and told us the story of the Eiffel Tower. It was short but all we needed to know then and there. Then we were on our own, heading up to the summit. It was really exceptional feeling to be on a such historic landmark in such a beautiful city. The boat tour was also perfect, we got on the last boat, still in daylight and cruising into evening lights. Amazing view, great set of programs. Thank you guys, I can only recommend you!

My husband and I booked the Eiffel Tower summit access plus Seine river cruise combination. Everything was well organized and our tour guide Ricardo was very engaging and provided a great overview of the Eiffel. We took the cruise on a different day of our choosing and had a great time. Would highly recommend booking this way to get tickets to the summit (limited availability on Eiffel website) and to skip the lineups!
