Picked our tour for first thing in the morning and glad we did as gets very busy! Thankfully was one of the first groups in after meeting our guide out the front. He was friendly, spoke good English and gave lots of interesting information. Our kids and us enjoyed going up and the view is amazing! Definitely worth the money.

Our guide Oscar was excellent on a tough day to tour the Eiffel tower. It was very windy, closing the elevator from level 2 to the top and it was cold rain too. Not a good day for pics and/or standing outside on the level 2 deck or level 1 deck outside the buidling. Oscar kept it entertaining and informative on a tough day, good job Oscar!

This tour was seamless the host was a delight also! We were met by the Host at the time and location stated on booking. The small group made it easy for us to get through the crowds, although my the comments from the host I feel that our smaller group is a rare thing. I would recommend this and suggest the summit option too!
