The Tower tour was the highlight of our 3 day stop in Paris. Guide was excellent and took us to the top of the tower with minimal wait. I would do this tour again. Yes, it’s a very tall tower but even my wife who doesn’t like elevators no heights made it to the top and was happy she did so.

Our guide was very friendly and personable. Unfortunately the tickets were printed with the wrong date on them, so we stood in line only to have to get out of line while they sent new tickets with the correct date. It was not a huge deal, but it was the end of a long day and we were exhausted so it just added to that. The tower was overcrowded; it felt like they sold too many tickets (nothing to do with Get your Guide), but it was nice to be able to experience it since we missed out last time we were in the area.

I’m glad that we did the tour at night. First time experiencing the Eiffel Tower when it lights up and shimmers is amazing. However, I’m not entirely sure our guide gave us the most accurate facts at times. There were a couple things that didn’t line up with things posted around the tower itself. The summit access was definitely worth it. We were happy to go up by ourselves since your guide leaves at the second floor.
