Awesome Tour!

Our guide was highly knowledgeable – she took us to all sides of the Eiffel Tower to give us stories & history of the main buildings surrounding the tower. The views were amazing! They sold Champagne and Macaroons on the 2nd Floor observation deck which was such a nice touch. We started on the 2nd access platform and then walked down to the first observation deck as there were different historical displays. The tour itself probably lasted 30 minutes but then you have access to stay as long as you’d like to take in all the sights & displays at your own pace.

It was so worth the extra that you pay to skip the line. The queues when we went end December 2017 was ridiculously long. The weather was cold and rainy, but with the quick access shortened our waiting time. The security check was not too long of a wait. Highly recommend the skip the line ticket

Don’t visit the tower without this deal!

The only thing you HAVE TO KNOW is that your looking for a person, not a building. Be there like 30minutes before. We loved it, our guide was so cute and smart, perfect English and we walked past HOURS of lines. It was a crazy amount of people there, and we are extremely happy that we got the tickets from our guide, walked past the long line at the entrance and the second crazy long line to our own elevator. Would never attempt to go by myself. Recommend going at sunset, the city is gorgeous during the night. It’s still okey during the day, but it’s so magical after sundown.
