    Highly recommended if you are first timers and looking for refundable tickets, brief information of Eiffel tower, other important sites in Paris and guidance through ticketing queues and security checks. Overall a nice experience. Suggestion from my side is you can give a very small souvenir at the end of tour to every customer to make them feel satisfied for the cost they pay to utilize your service

    The service is well organized, the guides were punctual. We were entrusted to Pepe for an English tour. He was clear and very nice, he explained in detail the whole history of the Eiffel Tower and many curiosities. We took the tour early in the morning, so waiting times were also short. I advise.

    The Eiffel Tower is and remains impressive. But also overcrowded. The waiting times (both at the entrance and in front of each elevator) are unreasonable and not for small children. A little tip: It's really worth booking as early as possible or very late! Going to the Eiffel Tower Lights in the evening was a wonderful end to a wonderful trip for all of us.
