It was beautiful, the agency was easy to find, very friendly staff and the groups were not large, the way to the Eiffel Tower was pleasant... The woman who led the group and told the story of the Eiffel Tower on the 2nd floor was great very informative and interesting.. Also about Paris in general... Admission to the Eiffel Tower was also quick and you could go straight to the top if you wanted to.. I was very satisfied.. Our three children too..

The tour guide was very knowledgeable and fun to talk to! I also enjoyed how small the tour group was, it made things feel more personal. We went in the morning right when it opened. We still had to wait in a line (although still separate from the regular line), and it went really fast. Overall, great experience and made my first visit to the Eiffel Tower very memorable! Also the river cruise was great, I recommend going around sunset (went went at 10:00pm), but make sure to get there earlier to queue.

We were a few minutes late (first day in the city), but they accommodated us and got us to the tour. Fun way to experience the Eiffel Tower. We did the last river cruise of the night and docked just as the Eiffel Tower began its “sparkle”— quite magical! Highly recommend this experience!
