Our tour guide Marcel was exceptional, with good jokes and better knowledge of history! The entire tour ran so smoothly, we were given mini headphones so we could hear Marcel throughout the tour without a disruption from our surroundings. The views from the top were amazing. Would 100% recommend booking with them as they were super efficient and organised!!

Actually, I wanted to buy normal tickets via the Eiffel Tower homepage, but I was too late and there were no more available. I then tried with gritted teeth to get tickets and finally found what I was looking for at Getyourguide. These were of course more expensive, but the extra cost was worth it! Everything really went like clockwork: exchanging the vouchers in the Getyourguide office and then the tour with Marcel! He told us so many interesting things about the construction of the Eiffel Tower and much more that in the end we would think we would have missed a lot if we just bought "normal" tickets and went to see the tower on our own without a guide had. Marcel was super nice and enthusiastic, told good and exciting stories and also gave us valuable tips. It's been a long time since I've had such a good guide :-) Would book again at any time via getyourguide!

The overall experience was well organized and executed. It was busy, but having pre-paid tickets and a guide to escort us through some of the lines was a timesaver. Also, having someone that knows exactly where to go and what to do made the whole experience less stressful and more enjoyable.
