A experiencia foi execelente. O guia estava nos esperando no local marcado com um pequeno grupo de outros turistas e nos levou para o passeio de forma segura e rapida. Ganhamos muito tempo com o skip the line. Mas o melhor da experiencia foi o guia, que realmente foi espetacular e agradavel, muito educado o tempo todo.

I did get what I paid for - a ticket to the second floor of the Eiffel Tower with a specific time, BUT it costs about 3 times the official price. If you can book in advance there is no reason to buy the ticket from any third company just buy it at the official website.

Easy to amend date once made. Easy to find the meeting point ( thankyou Google maps)- just a 5 minute walk from the tower.As a group we were in before the crowds. Guide was lovely & knowledgeable & unlike some similar trips he stayed with the group going up the tower and shared lots of information/ answered questions. Some people just wandered away- you had a choice. Once up the tower it's upto you how long you stay- there are refreshments & toilets. It was amazing that the group consisted of lots of nationalities- the internet has made it easy to book. It is , however a lot cheaper if you queue to get a ticket.
