    I arrived in a hurry because I was a bit late compared to the time indicated to redeem the voucher and I was afraid that they would not wait for me, instead they were really nice to wait for us and then having the reservation we skipped the whole queue. The guide was very nice and knowledgeable and explained some things about the Eiffel Tower to us in our language. Then he let us free to go up and take our times and during the descent we stopped on the first floor to relax for a while having a drink at the bar, there was to sit and a nice breeze and the prices were normal. I recommend that you book absolutely to avoid queuing for hours and hours.

    Waiting in line sucks... The elevator to the top of the Eiffel Tower wasn't operational on the first try, so we were allowed to come back 2 days later. Standing in line again... The price of 65€/person is definitely too expensive, better buy an online ticket on the internet for 17€ but weeks in advance!!

    Was a little chaotic with the crowd outside the souvenir shop but guide was delightful and patient. Meeting time at 8.30am but tower only opens at 9.30am, had to wait in line for 45mins before tower opens, but glad we went early as the queue gets really long after. With the tour, we were one of the first people to reach the summit with unobstructed views and no crowds. Highly recommend
