The Eiffel Tower experience was more enjoyable than expected. While the view and climbing experience was similar to what I expected, the efforts of our guide (Eric, Paris 1 guide company) was both thoughtful, encouraging and very friendly. Eric also has a natural ability to connect with a wide range of people. His easy and friendly manner was supportive of all the group. Eric also provided excellent general information and additional knowledge in relation to my stay in Paris. Overall a very professional guide Note. This review has been posted after returning home; and having used a number of different guide companies and having time to reflect on a number of services. This was the most professional of all services used

Our guide (Julia) was terrific. It was EXTREMELY cold the day that we toured the Eiffel Tower and Julia did a great job of taking our mind off of it with tons of interesting stories. The one downside is that although you can skip the security line outside of the park, you still have to wait a long time to go through the security gates to go up the stairs (hence the four stars rather than five). We purchased the summit access, but then realized it would be another 60 minute wait to go up to the summit. We decided to bail at that point rather than wait in another long line. The tower is still amazing without the summit!

It was an amazing tour with our tourguide Eric. The informative tour about the Tower started before the checkin at the tower in the que. Upstairs, on the first and second floor we got shown every view from the Eifel Tower, such as the dome in which Napoleon was buried. His English was very good and he connected with us and the other tourists with jokes, haha. Thanks for the amazing tour!
