After reading the mixed reviews I had a few concerns booking this but it was our only option to see the Eiffel Tower and experience not only the 2nd level but the Summit. To address a few concerns 1) ticket pickup - you meet offsite but if you follow the address provided in the app it’s very easy and clear - note you must be 15 min early 2) summit option - you must select this option when buying the ticket and it is more money and 3) our tour guide Camille was amazing. She told us lots of interesting facts in a very enjoyable way. The best tour guide we every had. 4) this excursion is expensive but we did the 9:30 time met and skipped all the lines and were to the 2nd floor in 17 minutes versus waiting an hour or hours. It was less crowded and highly enjoyable and we enjoyed the summit views after the 2nd floor tour and viewing.

Our guide Claire was knowledgeable and funny. It was nice not having to wait in super long lines (although there is still some lining up and waiting - just not as long as it would take going without a tour guide) and learning all about the city and the Eiffel Tower but the best part was the view! We only went to the second floor and wish I would have gotten the pass to climb to the summit but that will be for next time! I do recommend this tour:)

We came to two kids ages 7 and 11 and they loved it. Our guide was fabulous and she was so patient and always smiling. She met us at the shop and it was so easy. Definitely going to do this again someday. So worth skipping the lines and we just had to wait for the elevators and that’s normal. We had a great time. It can be windy so make sure to dress for some chilly air.
