Don’t be surprised when the ticket you get is around €27 printed (or there abouts). The tour guide company bulk buy all the tickets and get you fast track all access. Their margin is pretty massive but tbh it’s worth doing. I think this is by far the best way to do the Eiffel Tower. The guide was extremely fun & friendly, took pictures, answered all questions and overall great. But it is VERY short, in truth you are really just paying for the all access ticket. I advise going in the morning for minimal queue times so you can relax and enjoy the summit, 2nd and 1st floors fully!

If you have time, you can save yourself the guide and queue up yourself and buy a ticket on site. If you would like to have one or two more pieces of information, you are welcome to do so. In relation to the asking price, we found this activity to be too expensive. That's why there are only three stars here! In addition, on the day of the inspection, the ascent to the 3rd level was not possible for maintenance reasons, although this had been booked. A partial refund has been promised...wait and see. A full five stars for the Eiffel Tower and the visit itself, but not over this activity...unless a group tour with easy access is preferred.

The travel guide met us at the ticket exchange point and was there with us till second floor. Then we had to make our own way to the summit access. Was extremely beautiful but very chilly. in my personal view the Guide was less knowledgeable and shared hardly any information about History of Eifel tower or its details. This is the 3rd time i went to Paris but both of the last guide shared a lot more information about Eiffel Tower.
