Snap photos of the Louvre, Les Invalides, Sacré Coeur, and the Champ de Mars, among other standout Parisian highlights.

Ask for Beatriz
Michelle_S
, Jul 2022
There was a strike and our “skip the line” resulted in a massive line, waiting for two hours. Not the fault of the tour agency, in fact the guide Beatriz was wonderful for our group, giving us lots of facts about the tower and it’s history and construction during that time. She was fantastic. I only wish we had been advised about the possibility of a very long wait due to the labor strike

We had a very good guide who told us about history of Eifell tower and answer all questions. However, we had to stay in line for about 45 min even though it supposed to be skip the line tickets.

Terrible Experience
Andrea_C
, Jul 2022
When we arrived at the meeting point for our Skip the Line Eiffel Tower tour, I didn't realize that we needed to go inside the building and check in. I thought we could just show the QR code to the tour guide and then go with the group to the Eiffel Tower. Although the group was standing outside waiting for us, the woman would not let us check-in because we were late. None of this was clearly worded in the information from Viator. I knew I couldn't let my kids miss this once-in-a-lifetime chance to go to the top o the Eiffel Tower (and the woman at check-in knew it too). So I actually paid $45/per person for our family of four to go two hours later. She failed to mention that we did not have Summit access on the re-booked tour, even though we did on our original tour. So that was disappointing. The building for the meeting spot is un-air conditioned and does not have a bathroom! They send you to a gift shop down the street with a note and the manager let's you use his bathroom. There is a sign saying you can't flush your used toilet paper down the toilet (what?! gross?!), but I digress. They did get us quickly through the line once we went on our tour. But I wouldn't book through Viator again because of the overall experience.

Not totally satisfied
Nuala_M
, Jul 2022
Priority access was very good even though we still had to queue, a bit like disney fastpass, our tour guide was excellent. The reason for not giving 5 stars was to do with pricing, the entry ticket was €29.95 per person, there was 2 adults but we were charged €140 . When I queried the pricing I was told the extra was Viator fees. I understand that the have to make a profit but I believe €80 per couple too much.

I would not recommend doing the summit access. Just go up to 2nd level is sufficient. I think this tour is overpriced

The guide’s sense of humor and knowledge base helped us cope with heat and crowds. It was an equally entertaining experience for children and adults. I encourage the able-bodied to exit the upper level by elevator to the first floor and then walk down the inner stairway to the main level. The gears and cables are an interesting discovery.

2 hours 30 minutes needed
Tricia_S
, Jul 2022
The “skip the line” is a little deceiving because there are still lines you have to deal with. We tried to time it right to be back at our hotel in time for a 4pm checkout. The description said “1 hour 30 minutes (approx)”. We had to “skip the tour” once we got up so we could at least make the summit but that’s all we did and only for 10 mins in order to leave by 3pm. I’m sure a lot of people schedule other events around each other. 1 hour 30 minutes (approx) isn’t close to the time you need to set aside for the tour. I would say 2 hour 30 minutes (approx). Besides that, our guide Presley was awesome! We’re really disappointed that we had to miss the tour!!

Fantastic Experience
Krystl_V

When we booked this experience we were nervous because of all the negative reviews but our experience was great with this company. We arrived early to make sure we had time to check in and everything went super smooth. There wasnt really a way to "skip the line" because you still have to go through security but it was still pretty quick for July. We dont normally do tours but the guide we had was fantastic and was great at telling French history in an engaging way.

Visiting the Eiffel Tower and having summit access was a dream come true. Paris is beautiful and the views from up top are breathtaking to say the least. Loved this adventure.

Paid too much for Skipping the Line!!!
Anonymous
, Jul 2022
Skipping the line isn’t really getting to skip the crowds of people in line for the elevators. It was still so crowded that despite our 4:15 time slot, we didn’t reach the summit until 5:00. I don’t call that “skipping the line.”

The tour was well organized and very informative. Our tour guide Presleigh was very good. She explained the history of the Eiffel Tower and showed us landmarks from the tower. We never waited more and a few minutes for any elevator.

Eiffel Tower was a breeze!

Definitely worth the money! We walked right past a huge line for both tickets and security and flew right through the process and onto the lift. We had access to the summit, which was closed to other visitors. It was an amazing day and Thierry was a great guide!!

Skip the line is still a long experience
Mark_G
, Jul 2022
We were pressed for time to get to another Viator experience. We mentioned this to tour guide who assured us we could get in line right away to summit. Well he did not help us and we did not make it to the summit. We had to leave to catch the boat tour. More misinformation given on how far we needed to travel to board the boat. Very dissatisfied for the money we paid. The amount of time needed to complete the travel to the summit was long. Disingenuous tour guides.

We're sincerely sorry to hear about your your disappointment, however please note there are different elevators in each floor; none of the elevators have a direct access to the top floor as specified in the description of the activity, as well as in the voucher. Again, we're sincerely sorry to hear about your disappointment and we hope you'll give us another chance to enjoy your next experience with us. We thank you for your feedback!
