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

A perfect way to begin your week in Paris

A simple tour that allowed you to go straight to the 2nd floor of the famous tower. Once there, you did wait in line to ascend to the top, however, it was an easy process and definitely worth the wait.

Our tour Guide Victoria (I hope I have her name correct), was delightful, accommodating, and did a great job updating us on each step of our tour. This tour was originally set for 2:30 p.m., however, it was canceled. I was allowed to re-schedule at 9:00 p.m. and agreed to it. Although was initially anxious because of the change, I am happy to say our 9:00 p.m. tour was just fantastic.

Company is a scam!
David_S

Ridiculous that they will not give a refund when airlines are striking and you can’t make the tour. It’s not like it was our fault. Gave them plenty of notice that we wouldn’t be able to make it, which would allow them to get someone else to fill the 2 spots we vacated and yet they will wouldn’t refund us any money. The problem is there are no skip the line tours of the Eiffel Tower that aren’t refundable so as a visitor you are stuck picking a tour and hoping nothing goes wrong. I would understand if it was our fault or I cancelled the day of the tour but neither of these were the case. Very disappointing and pour customer service. Company is a complete scam!

Fine choice to reserve entry

All you need to know: 1. Only do this tour if you need to get the time slot - not worth it otherwise 2. No skip the line for the elevator to the top which is usually the longest line 3 our tour guide was okay-ish. A kid. Nearly left us at the meeting point (where we had checked in well in time) and spoke quietly so only the closest people could hear My personal view is going to the top isn’t worth it - view is great from 2nd floor. But that’s me!

We never were able to find the meeting place… looked for over 40 minutes, no identification to look for our guide….. so very disappointing

Not too special

We could easily have done this tour without a guide. We had a member of the tour who monopolized the guide and she did not have the experience to kindly distract him and converse with the entire group. Most of us simply went off on our own.

Really all we were looking for is a way to get in without waiting in line. The tour guy did a great job and went over the top from what we expected.

Wow, what can I say. This was a huge highlight to the trip. Antoine was one of the best guides I’ve ever had and made the experience amazing. Such a fun person and with so much knowledge. 100% would recommend.

Average tour with stunning scenery

The best part was skipping the line and going to the Summit. Beautiful at night. But tour itself was average. She basically just got us in faster.

The Vendor did not have our reservation in their system. VIATOR has refused to refund. Frankly, it’s fraudulent.

The vendor failed to take us to the Tower. We stood in line and did it ourselves. No need for a vendor. Skip this vendor and VIATOR.

We loved the service at this Hotel. Everyone was more than willing to help with any questions we had. It is about 10 minutes from the Metro or Eiffel Tower so very convenient as well.

You can't go wrong with the Eiffel Tower! Our guide was knowledgeable and worked effortlessly around the crowds, so that everyone could hear. The views are incredible and you have the option to go to the summit. Highly recommend!

The elevator ride all the way to the summit was a bit scary (for me not the height, but the confinement), but was definitely worth it- the views of Paris!! While we were there, a couple become engaged. You must not kiss this iconic Paris experience. Don’t be scared- the tower has stood the test of time!!

We still waited in line - Summit was closed
Christine_L
, Jun 2022
We paid for skip the line entry and access to the summit of the Eiffel Tower. Even with the tickets, our tour group still ended up waiting in line for almost 40 minutes before we could even enter the tower. The summit was closed the evening we went so we were not able to go past the 2nd level deck. The only reason I gave this a rating of 2 instead of 1 is because the tour guide was great. I will be reaching out to Viator for a partial refund since we had to wait in line and were not able to go to the Summit, which is what we paid for.

Noelle the tour guide was outstanding and very nice as well as informative. But even with “skip the line” we were in line for 75 minutes and it was very hot. Had we known this in advance we would have brought bottled water. Also I walk with a cane and standing the entire time was hard. There are no accommodations for someone who is handicapped.

Just bad communication
Steve_S
, Jun 2022
Never able to open tickets from the confirmation email. When you click it just says “oops”. No number to call. No idea where to meet. No response from email. Your better off using another company or enjoy the Eiffel without a guide as we ended up doing.
