  • "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

No Summit Access - Ask Before you go.

Arrive and we’re told that the transport to the summit may be closed but should re-open. It didn’t. Tour to the 2nd floor was good. Host was knowledgeable and nice. Would of been good if we were refunded immediately given that we paid for a summit visit which did not happen. Somewhat of a rip-off.

Not Really Skipping the Line
ASHLEY_H
, Jun 2022
We booked this because we were too late to get tickets directly from the Eiffel Tower website. I’m glad we did it, but if given the choice I wouldn’t do it again for the price. It was very expensive for what it was worth. We skipped the first line, which honestly wasn’t very long. We still had to wait to get up the elevator and then to the summit which took a long time both times. We didn’t mind, but again for the price we paid it wasn’t worth it. They print how much the price is on the ticket also and what we paid for the tour was 3 times the amount. It was also not a small group - 30 people. Although the tour guide was really sweet and knowledgeable, it again for the price was not worth it in our opinion.

We paid 230 usd for 3 people. Cost of ticket is 29 euros pp. pAid to go to top and it was closed. Hardly saw the guide. Better to go on your own. Will expect a refund.

Remi was a fantastic and enthusiastic guide. We couldn’t have been more pleased with him. The line to get to the summit after the tour was awful, even with this “skip the line” package.

Nice guide but, let’s be honest, the tour is not the reason to purchase this. It is to skip the lines.

Horrible! We were exposed to COVID and have to reschedule our whole trip. I tried to see if I could use it at a later date, but NO RESPONSE BACK! I will never use this service again!!! They could have at least called me back.

Tourstanding!
Miriam_S
, Jun 2022
The tour guide was personable and helpful. However, the crowds did it assist with hearing the guide. Speaking louder or audio headsets would have been ideal. The trip was worth the money and the meeting location is exceptional! Buy souvenirs while waiting—Just perfect. I wish there was more detail on when the lights would turn on from the tower website on the daily. This would be most helpful.

Just pre-purchase your ticket and save some $$ on a "tour"
kristie_n
, Jun 2022
Great to "skip the line" but there was no line to enter so I guess could have just pre-purchased the entry tickets. Still had to wait in line for the elevator to the top. Not really much of a tour as our guide led us down the road to the entry point, then to the elevator. told us a couple things about the tower then she was off to her next tour.
