    Good idea to scope out the meeting location the day prior. It’s across the street from Cafe Gustavo. Plan ahead for possible subway/metro/train/bus issues (we experienced ALL of them and barely made it there in time). Have a jacket with you - the summit is windy/chilly. Our guide was Karl- he was an awesome young man from Cameroon- his English is impeccable and his knowledge of the tower is impressive. He walked us across to the entrance and got us through security quickly - and into the second line inside to the elevators. We rode to the second level and our guide walked us around, pointing out the spots of interest and telling us a little bit about the construction of the tower and it’s history. He then got us into line for the elevators to the summit (top) of the tower and after a very short wait, we found ourselves at the top. There is an enclosed observation deck with a 360° view of Paris and you can walk up to the outside (windy) view. Spectacular trip, well worth what we paid.

    We met our guide (and other tourists) just a short walk to the E.tower. Our guide was very informative, pleasant, and took care of our group. We have enjoyed the convenience of using Get Your Guide. We had paid for a “summit” tour of the Eiffel tower but could only do the 2nd floor due to maintenance. GYGuide refunded that percentage of the tour. Very easy to work with.

    Very happy with the experience, they have guides in several languages (the page only gives in English), we arrived at the activity and they included us without problem in the Spanish-speaking group. The very nice guide and explains in a very good way the history of the Tower. The tour allows you to visit the second floor where the guide explains the different monuments that can be seen, then you can climb to the top but without a guide. 100% recommended
