We were 10 minutes late as we had trouble finding the meeting location, but the tour was just departing, and the guide got us set up and had our tickets waiting. The guide was great, she knew the history of the tower and all of the local stories surrounding it. We all were given headsets so that we could hear her in the crowds surrounding the tower, which was very helpful. Overall, it was a great tour and well worth the money.

This was a super excursion. The guide was so knowledgeable. 2 hrs of information and moved so quickly from level to level. More expensive than regular entry but well worth it. Amazing views and all the time you want up there when guide has finished. Dont go in the dark. See the tower sparkle at 11pm from the park around it, it is beautiful.

A 10 out of 10. An experience that you should not miss. You are free to go up to any of the three floors by elevator and the views are amazing. You can also take the stairs, but I recommend the elevator. The guide is very nice and explained everything phenomenally.
