This is the 3rd tour I have used with Get Your Guide she nice being in Paris and it was great. Didn’t quite understand the distance from the office to the Tower but it was a short walk but also informative. The guide provided info on the neighborhood along the way and also allowed photos prior to the arrival to the Tower. She gave insight on the Tower being in renovation mode along with pre-admission requirements. Overall it was a great experience.

We picked the right time, 4pm. When we arrived it was daylight and then we got to watch the sun set over Paris while touring the Eiffel Tower. I highly recommend this tour. It takes some time to get through the ticket and security line even with a guide so, I can’t imagine how long the process would be without a guide. The guide was very knowledgeable and definitely helped us through the chaos of people, lines, and levels of the Eiffel Tower. It’s worth the time saved. The Eiffel Tower is also beautiful at night and looking out over the city of lights. Truly amazing and iconic. I’m glad we got to experience it at daytime, sunset, and night!

The guide was awesome!! Even though we could not go the top (it was closed) we had a nice time. The company also promised to refund us for the amount paid to go to the summit. We didn't like that they changed the meeting location and we met at the "get your guide" office. it was a good 10 minute walk from the original location and having alwaked all day, we were not that happy, but it was not that bad anyway.
