Overpriced - no preferred lines

We paid extra to skip the line with a guided tour. With 30 people we were in a group, waiting in the normal line. The operator had to buy tickets for the group - normal price - we where again waiting. We lost the guide at the top because the group was to big. A nice other guide provides us with information. For the €280,- we had to pay was it a real tourist trap!!

Rip-off!!

You have "Skip the Line" in your title, but you made us wait in line at your office for almost 30 mins, then you took us to the regular line at Eiffel tower with the regular crowd for another 45 mins! Skip-the-line ?? Really? Also, the regular tickets for 2nd floor is $16 whereas you charge close to $50. Do you agree this is a rip-off ? When i asked the tour "guide" about this, she tells me she's a free-lance and has no idea about rates etc. I asked her if i could change my ticket to go to the first floor (even with the rip-off rate), she said "no-way". I went up to to counter and bought the 1st floor tickets for $26 and actually did NOT use your tickets. To put is simply, this was one place in Paris where i felt i got ripped off. Please refund my money!

Bad experience
Dolores_G

Not a good experience. We had to get the tickets 15min far from the tower and we were not aware of that. It says skip the line and we stayed in line with the tour host. We paid 15 euro an addition per person to get at the top of the tower. Not worth it. Go directly and buy the tickets yourself.

The tour was great as it...

The tour was great as it kept us from standing in the 2hr wait line . The guide gave the tour in English and French which was helpful as well as giving Eiffel Tower information from each direction the Tower faced . I highly recommend this tour from History Group

We had such a great time on the Eiffel Tower tour! Yazid was our host and he made it fun, while also giving us a good history lesson. We were happy with his charisma and the professionalism of the company as a while. Thank you!

It was ok

The guide was very nice. However for the extra money not really worth it. The line was not long when we got to the tower and the information was ok but not great. If I could do it again I would just show up and get the tickets directly from the tower.

Although my tour with the History group was good - I discovered that I would have saved over $100 if I’d NOT booked through Viator and come straight to the History Group! What a bummer!
