Our guide Victoria met us on time and was friendly, knowledgeable and helpful throughout the trip. Bear in mind timings if you have other activities booked. Our meeting time was 12.30 but we didn't get on the lift until 1.10 then there was a long queue for the summit. We didn't need to rush though as despite the app saying about strict entry times for the Louvre visit, nobody seemed bothered when we got there. The Louvre is huge and you need a lot of time to fully appreciate it, long queue for Mona Lisa. We did the cruise at night and again there was a long queue but it was well worth seeing the tower lit up at night as it is spectacular!

View and experience was amazing! The tables are pretty close to each other and we were lucky enough to have great couples to our right and left. The food is not great, but you really aren’t there for a gourmet dinner.

Lara, our tour guide was very nice. We really enjoyed the experience and learning about the Eifel Tower.

Laura was a great guide , polite , patient and with good knowledge of sites.

The guides were very kind and accommodating. Unforgetable experience.
