If you’ve never been to Paris before and you’re wondering if you need this tour, book it! I highly recommend it. Brandon was extremely helpful in getting us to where we needed to go and the skip the line tickets were extremely convenient. We saved so much time by passing to the front. Brandon was super knowledgeable and pointed out all the major buildings and historical landmarks in Paris when we were in the Eiffel Tower. Our group loved this tour and said it was the best one we’ve had during our time in France.

We went on a 11 o clock tour. The meeting point was right beside rue de l’universite, a great spot for photos of the Eiffel Tower. We left at 11. The skip the line tickets are more expensive, but I think this tour is worth it because you can get up to the tower in an escalator much quicker than a standard ticket. Our tour guide was so nice. Her information was prompt and interesting, and she stayed at the end to answer any questions we had. We then had our own time to walk around the second deck ourselves. I would recommend this tour if you want to learn about the Eiffel Tower, without spending your entire day there.

Our guide, Zoe, was wonderful. She was friendly and fun and made sure we got to the second floor of the tower in time for sunset which was spectacular. We got into the tower quickly without having to queue which was well worth the money when travelling with young family.
