Our Guide Eugenia was the perfect guide with very interesting information about Paris in total, but also with some special hints during our tour. The pictures of the Eiffel-Tower that she made with our camera (special focal point) are really great! Thanks to Eugenia - my sons and I had a perfect day. By the way, were waiting for about 30 minutes to enter the 2nd floor of the tower and this is very fast compared to the normal line...

Sonja was an incredible guide! She taught us so much about the history of Paris and was so fun to talk with!! The views are incredible, don't miss the summit if you're already there! Even for people who are afraid of heights, it's not bad at all! The skip the line was amazing to get to the 2nd floor and we were about to purchase a ticket to the summit and go right up after about a 40mins after we were already there, super easy! We highly recommend this your company and Sonja!

Saved time in lines and learned more!

I've never done an eiffel tower skip the line tour before but it was truly worth the money for us. Gil was knowledgeable and easy to listen to. The walk to the lift and ascent were pleasant and quick, even with all of the security checkpoints etc. He answered all questions, explained some of the history of places we could see, and used a sense of humour to keep things lively and interesting.
