The tour guide was very nice and quickly took us to the Eiffel Tower and gave us some information in English, after which everyone took the elevator up together. Afterwards you are on your own and have to try to find the right ship for the round trips, since there is only spartan information on the tickets, it was really a waste of time for us.

The guides turned up on time and were lovely. They escorted us to the Eiffel Tower and stayed with us through security and until our tickets were scanned in. The ticket includes lift access to 2nd floor (and summit if you choose when booking which we did). The guide points out on the way where to get the boat from and hands you all the tickets. All tickets worked fine and I’m so glad we chose this tour. Only thing to be mindful of is the bus doesn’t do their full route until very late, and start terminating at stop 4 of 8 after about 4.30pm, so book your meeting point early if you want to do the whole route. We didn’t get to do it all as our meet time was 12.30pm and it was turned 4.30pm by the time we had done the tower and cruise, still nice though as we just did stop 1 to 3 as there is a RER train station there which we needed to get back to where we were staying, so it saved our legs having to walk to the station and we saw some nice sites on the way.

Everything is great. We took the bus for 2 days and since the activity started at 4 and ended at 6, we started the bus the next day and we had another day and until 11 the next day. The punctual guide although she did not speak Spanish as they said. The normal queue in the tower and the whole pack is great. It's so worth it
