I am not a fan of guided tours preferring to view sites at my own pace. However the Eiffel Tower tour was really good - it cut down the queues enormously and we learnt a lot of information on the construction, as well as really useful tips such as where to take photos. The tour was a good pace, was really informative and good humoured. Would recommend to anyone wanting to visit the tower.

It was excellent to have the direct access, and our tour guide, Imad, was very pleasant and professional! Once we got to the second floor, I think the guide could offer two options. He could let those who want to hear a lot about sites that are seen from the second floor or allow people to simply explore on their own. While he was very professional and excellent, we were less interested in hearing about sites and it was not super easy to hear. We mostly just wanted to walk around the second floor and explore. There is about 30 minutes of talking once you were on the second floor.

From the organization everything went well. You got headsets that worked well. Because the event was on Saturday, there was still a long wait to get to the first floor! Amid, our guide, went out of his way to ease the wait with facts about the Eiffel Tower! A sympathetic and nice man. On the 1st floor, he explains the sights of paris seen from above! But he doesn't go to the top of the tower! But he will be happy to show you the entrance to the elevator! I deduct a point because of the longer waiting time, which was shorter than with the regular tickets, and the lecture dragged on a little too long as a result
