A great way to see the famous tour from up close, and learn the history behind it. Even if you get to the 2nd floor and not all the way to the summit you get great views of Paris, but the summit is of course something unique, as long as you don't have a fear of heights.

Great handling at the tour office. Also in German. Our guide Sebastian was in a good mood and told everything about the Eiffel Tower. Direct entry and elevator to the 2nd level worked great. The subsequent trip on the Seine with a bit of queuing was also great. Any time

Claire (the guide) was friendly and funny, she explained us about the history of the Effeil Tower and once up there all about the monuments around the city. We also had the opportunity to get till the top, what else to say ... an heartbreaking view! After visiting the Effeil Tower, we also took the cruise during the afternoon. If you are visiting Paris is something you need to do! We were lucky as the weather was sunny even if it was cold so we could enjoy it the most. On winter time, just ensure you are well dressed up because it gets pretty cold up the tower and in the cruise is very windy. Overall I would say the experience was worthy for the money we paid :)
