      Good experience but the tour guide was confused!

      Could have been organized a lot better. Did not have to show up at 8:15 AM and wait around until 9:30 AM when the Eiffel Tower opens. Too many line formations. Why? No commentary either but wasn't expecting it. We figured out the river boat cruise all by ourselves. The guides were nowhere to be seen.

      Good value

      Despite having booked for a 9am departure (it opens at 9am), we only ended up at the 2nd floor around 90 minutes later. I can't imagine it gets better as the day goes by, so this may not have been so bad. You meet at a souvenir shop a good distance away from the entrance. By the time you get there there is already a lineup, but surprisingly once you get past security there is already another very long line-up. So be prepared to wait. Beyond the waiting, the tour guide was attentive and knowledgeable. She was italian and fluent in many languages. I got my cruise voucher as promised, it was good for 6 months and I used it a couple of days later. I enjoyed the cruise. Again, the guide was knowledgeable, translated in 3 languages. It was over before I knew it. I would recommend this tour.

      Amazing way to see Paris from a height

      Our original booking was changed from an afternoon to an early morning slot which was a god and given the heat however on the original date we were due to go I went to the wrong meeting point so it is crucial to check where you need to be and at what time! However the shop owner was beyond helpful when we did arrive and made sure we still had the cruise ticket ehich was fabulous and changed our tower booking to the following day at the same time. We did go up however the queues were awful and given we had a skip the line still ended up queuing for an hour and a half and as we were right for time given we were leaving we had a whistle stop trip up the tower quick photos and back down again! The tour guide was very accommodating though and knew our time restrictions do made sure we were at the front of the queue and let us just go off when we got to the second floor so we were not restricted
