    Fantastically good with the guide Peppe from Mexico. He was both very knowledgeable, offered curiosities and had a very nice sense of humor. The Eiffel Tower itself is magnificent, and with that guidance (and certainly also the piloting through security checks) it was a lovely few hours. Expect it to take 3-4 hours in high season due to queues, even if you bought tickets beforehand. Queuing up and down to take the elevators.

    Really good experience, our guide Pepe was really good and funny. He quickly showed us to the queue and through the security check. Told the story of the Eiffel Tower and knew a lot about everything we could see from up there. He told about the historic buildings, who had built them, about Napoleon, etc. Really exciting.

    Everything was simple and easy. I enjoyed the tour guide and tour. The only mistake was I was handed the wrong ticket by the tour guide. I had to talk the security guard out of the idea the tour company was trying to scam them. Only after I messaged the tour company did the guard relent and allow me to the top floor. The tour company did not respond during that tense moment on the 2nd floor. The tour guide had left before the final elevator, but had she stayed 5 more minutes to make sure we were successful would have prevented quite an embarrassment. Apparently, this happens and the guards are getting less enthused about the mistakes which cost the monument money in ticket sales. My wife received the correct ticket.
