Traveler Tips


  • "Take any skip the line tour with Viator well worth the cost to save time." See review
  • "As someone who is not great with heights, the lift is a little bit daunting - especially the lift from the first platform to the next, but once you get up there, it is all worth it." See review

Beautiful view but disappointing tour
Alex_S
, Oct 2021
We were able to skip the line, but there didn’t seem to be a long line to skip. Our guide knew the answers to our questions, but there was no “tour” at all. She also did not inform us that the Eiffel Tour was closing at 6pm (we had no idea) and by the time we had finished walking around the second floor, it was too late to go to rue summit. The guards at the elevator told us that since our tickets that the guide gave us said “4.30 pm summit tour” we were expected to go up the elevator at that time. It was clear to the guide, as she sent us to the elevator at 5.30!!! So in the end, I only recommend this “tour” if you need it to skip a long line at a time when many tourists are there.

Highly disappointing, we showed up at 2.15 for our 2.30 tour at the designated location. After waiting and waiting we finally called - to find that the tour was at 2pm, not, per the documents sent to us by Viator, at 2.30. So, we didn't go. Our money was refunded, but since no other times were available during our stay, this was hugely disappointing.

Max was WONDERFUL

Immediately after scanning our entrance tickets, Max learned that the tower was closing early. We only had an hour and a half to do EVERYTHING. Max was understandably upset considering we paid good money for the tour. However! Max gave us all the information we needed in comprehensible record time and we still were able to have champagne at the top and enjoy ourselves. We even left before we were asked to leave! A wonderful time and highlight of our trip.

Our guide was extremely knowledgeable ((and charming). Skipping the ticket lines was a huge bonus as it saved us easily 2 hours. The views were breathtaking and the experience was very enjoyable.

Nobody came

Abandoned!! The guide was a “no-show”. We phoned, told that we were booked on a “non-existent” tour. Wasted a whole half-day of valuable vacation time. Same thing happened on a Viator tour in Portugal. Cancelled in the middle of the night before-no way to get another tour on short notice. May just be my experience, but I will never use Viator again.

Very friendly, knowledgeable and motivated tour guide

I think Demi (our tour guide) must be the friendliest French guy in existence. He made the tour so much more interesting with everything he told us about what we could see around the Eiffel tower on each of the 4 sides. He is French but his English is better than most English speaking people!
