Met the guide with my wife and two kids, we were given earpiece and electric gadget so we could listen to the guide while we went up the Eiffel Tower , stopped at the first landing took a few pictures then went right up to the summit everyone else took photos and walked round while I hid in a corner ( bit scared of heights) lol . Guide gave a good tour and was well worth the money we paid for the trip.

It was a rainy day but by the time we reached the second floor it was all clear. The meeting point was easy to find and while we were early, there was someone already there to meet-up. Quentin was a wonderful guide and we had a superb experience. While the summit access was closed for some time , it was reopened and we could experience the top as well.

Will was AWESOME!!!!!! Word of warning to those trying to plan the rest of their day out - the 90 minutes actually gets you to the second floor but the line to the actual summit and back down take much longer on a busy day. We so enjoyed the commentary but we were bummed that we couldn't go to the summit even though we purchased the access but we had to get to our next activity. Too tight planning on my part - but this in NO WAY reflects the performance of our tour guide. He was GREAT!!!!!!
