Our guide, Monica, was wonderful. She was enthusiastic and provided lots of interesting information and background about the Eiffel Tower. The meeting point at the cafe was close to the tower, and the group size was fairly small. I liked how she talked with us at the base of the tower, but then we also had time to actually go up the tower on our own. The best part was going up to the Summit, having a glass of champagne from the champagne bar, and enjoying the view!

We met the guide and 10 other people in front of the cafe and then went to the Eiffel Tower together. We then went through the special entrance to the grounds of the Eiffel Tower, where the guide briefly explained something to us and then led us to the entrance of the lift, which took us to the 2nd floor. But we would have to queue for about 15-20 minutes at the lift. The guide told us that we should take the elevator from the 2nd floor to the top, we did that and it is also recommended. So we spent a little more money for the first visit, but it was good. The waiting times were shorter and useful tips were given

A unique experience accompanied by a spectacular guide. The activity was in English because there were no hours left to reserve in Spanish and the guide, knowing that we did not understand English very well, explained to us in Spanish, alternating with the visit in English, always attentive to us and very pleasant. It was a pleasure doing this tour with her.
