We had a great time. Our tour guide was great and funny. She took us through the 'skip the line' and security aspects of the tour very efficiently and quickly. The guide was funny and informative and told some great stories and facts about the tower and Parisian history. And was multilingual and able to explain some humour and complicated points to a large diverse group of nationalities in English and Spanish. the tour was supposed to be English, but we thought this was a really nice gesture and showed how aware of the whole group the guide was. We couldn't go up to the summit + 3rd floor because of yearly January maintenance but still had a great time. Only point + feedback would be it wasn't clear from booking on the GYG App that we couldn't book the summit because of this.

The visit itself is amazing, it would be a mistake not to do it, but paying 140 euros for a visit which costs much less if purchased on the spot, you have to think about it. the guide explains the whole story well but only and exclusively in English . Anyone who doesn't understand is screwed. But I repeat, climbing the tower is wonderful.

The activity was excellent in English but they gave us the option to meet together in Spanish and this facilitated access to the Eiffel Tower and the girl very patiently explained the subject to us and we also had interaction and we talked with her very much about the Eiffel Tower and other topics and also gave us tips from the city of Paris very grateful
