We did a guided tour with Laura, who was absolutely incredible. She was very friendly and shared a ton of fascinating information about the tower the entire tour. She made the entry process very easy. I would highly recommend booking the guided tour as Laura shared so much about the history of the tower and the city that made the visit much more special.

This event was our highlight in Paris. Unfortunately, the German guide was ill (we were informed of this by email beforehand and could have resigned). But we still wanted to go up and were then alternatively accompanied by a Get your Guide employee to the separate entrance and the elevators and automatically received a proper refund for the lost service (German guide) on the account. You still have to queue for a while at the elevator to the top, as there is no separate entrance. If we hadn't booked the tickets up to the top in advance, we wouldn't have made it to the top. The tip was only open to booked tickets. We also thought the repayment was great, there were serious doubts as to whether we would really get the money back. We also booked more tickets for our Paris weekend through this site. All in all a serious and good organizer.

The tour was right on time and our amazing guide (forgot his name) was great! Brought his book and informed us all about Eiffel Tower history! It was fun learning something new and our tour guide made it even more fun. Besides the wind, I loved every part of the tour .
