Nice tour and discussion of the tower history. Imad was a fantastic guide. Unfortunately, the top of the tower had closed for technical issues during our scheduled time, but Get Your Guide announced this and processed a refund for that portion quickly and without our asking/prompting. Very good customer service.

Our guide Florian has taken us on an interesting and fun tour on the Eiffel tour. A lot of inside information and fun facts have been shared by him. Very helpful, friendly, and caring about his guests, I would most definitely recommend to let him take you on one of the tours.

Skip the huge line outside the tower, immediately continue to the security check. The guide was really nice and knew a lot about Paris and the Eiffel Tower. The meeting point is a little walk from the tower, there are many small restaurants nearby to have lunch or a drink before heading to the meeting point.
