The tour was very nice, our guide Bao was very enthusiastic, he told us the history of the construction and left us in the row of the elevator. the guides are not dressed in blue you have to specify the information, but they pick you up at the meeting point without problem

This was a win for us. We took photos at Trocadero Square before meeting the tour guide. She provided some interesting history about the Eiffel Tower. Then we felt like VIP guest because we moved past hundreds of people in line to a MUCH shorter private tour line, and were given our tickets to go inside. If you go to Paris on a peak season, it is worth it so that you don’t have to wait for who knows how many hours in line!

Great guide, though she spoke a bit quickly. Keep that in mind if you're not that fluent, but I bet that you could ask her to speak a bit slower and she would: she was super friendly! However!! Get Your Guide says that the guide will be wearing blue, which is not the case! This was a guide that could be booked through several websites it seems, since the flag that she was holding up didn't say 'Get Your Guide'. Just know: it's the location that you have to go to! She was exactly where they said she would be, so that part was totally fine. We walked towards the Eiffel Tower and got nice information, several fun facts and more than enough time to take pictures. The guide dropped us off right underneath the tower (already inside), e-mailed our tickets and we were free to go up by ourselves, which was really great to do at our own pace.
