Up the tower no information

Could not hear the guide clearly despite two changes of radio. Switched it off in the end .. she tried very hard to rectify the situation but we were not able to get a clear commentary.

We are very sorry to read that you had problems hearing your guide Caroline during your tour. We spoke to her after the tour and she informed us that there were some issues with the microphone. The transmitters used by our guides also work without the microphone, allowing the guide to speak directly into them so that our guests can hear. It is not as comfortable for the guides, but should allow our guests to hear the tour clearly at all times. We are very sorry to hear that this was not the case for you, and we encourage all guests not to hesitate to tell the guides if you are having any issues. They are there to help you and their wish of course, like ours, is that you enjoy your visit in the best possible conditions. We do hope you enjoyed your trip to Paris and that we will have the opportunity to welcome you again in future and in better conditions.

Martin our guide was great; on time, great commentary; tour was very good and most enjoyable and easy!
Skip the lines if possible.

The skip the line Eiffel Tower Tour is a Godsend. There were so many people that if we hadn't been on the tour we'd still be waiting in line to get in. Skip the Line tours are a necessity for seeing the Eiffel Tower. The tours are more expensive but you will save yourself a lot of time.

The tour was great! The guide was very informed and understandable. She answered all the questions we had about buildings and the building of the Eiffel Tower. Our biggest problem was the Viator information. We were told in the information that we were to redeem this ticket for an entry ticket at the redemption point, but there was no redemption point. The tickets did not need to be exchanged. We spent 2 hours trying to find a redemption point. Finally, I got Viator and a local person on the phone and they told us we only had to go to the "Departure Point".
A must do for anyone going to Paris!

So easy to find tour to start and this relaxed ease continued through the whole tour. Our guide Will was funny, organised and informative. The skip the line was brilliant and a massive time saver. Can not recommend this tour enough for anyone visiting Paris.
Breath taking views and excellent guide

The guide was excellent and well informed about the history of the Eiffel Tower and france . Meeting point was easy to find as per the instructions. Overall amazing experience!
Eiffel Tower at Night
, Oct 2019
The Eiffel Tower is a must see attraction when in Paris! It was spectacular all lit up. Viator's instructions with regard to redeeming your voucher for an actual ticket were inaccurate at best and misleading. We wasted an hour trying to find a "redemption center" to redeem our ticket when all we had to do was meet the tour group leader who holds all the actual tickets. Very disappointing.
Fantastic way to see the tower

This was so awesome! Super clear instructions as to where to meet our guide and that went very smoothly. Quality of audio guide units was great and our guide Randa was superb! She had great storytelling ability that drew you into the history of the tour. This tour stood out for me because it included the summit and the tour meant skip the line and then straight to the summit- with the history and stories I parted along the way making lines short work- we got lucky with timing also so had more time at the top. After the guided part was finished we were free to roam the tower and all its levels at our own pace- was perfect for what we were looking for!

Very knowledgeable guide. Skip the line was worth the cost. Guide stayed with us the whole time and added many, many tidbits about construction, etc. Certainly worth the cost
Excellent Guided Tour To The Top
, Sep 2019
We enjoyed this well organised guided tour to the top of the Eiffel Tower. The only down side was the number of other tourists. Luckily we skipped the queues.
