It was quite well explained and instructions were good, knew where to meet and taken in by guide. Tour was early morning so no queue, security easy, we were then given an informative chat about the history of the tower and told what to expect. We was then taken up to the 2nd floor with the guide who then left us and we were then left to our own devices. The tower was great, the guide was very good English speaking and explained the whole experience.

AWFUL 😤😤😤😤😤😤😤😤😤😤😤😤😤 Do NOT BOOK this shambles of a company…😡We had 24hrs in Paris and booked the tour at lunch on Thursday for the evening at 6.30pm at a high cost of over £300.The first time our teens have been to Paris and high expectations of seeing and learning about the iconic Eiffel Tower..the La Vacanza Travel app when we tried to locate our booking said “something has gone wrong” multiple times,the meeting point changed twice (being a door on a street(not very professional)so we wasted nearly an hour locating the meeting point , going back and forth to the Eiffel tower main entrance to ask their advice and suggestions that we had been scammed! we were given more instructions,upon finally another meet point address came up (again a number of a different door)it was then nearly 6.50pm and no one to be found.No your to be had. We contacted customer services immediately to report what had happened via email as no one answered when we called (automated)and were told that they had looked into it and would not issue a refund…even though we sent them screen shots of all the miscommunication and app glitch..this is unacceptable and needs to be looked into again. Regardless of the monetary cost, we wasted precious time on a tight schedule to sort this.We have travelled to many countries and fairly tech savvy (also with teens) and all of our other plans ran very smoothly with our hotel, lunch and dinner reservations and bookings to exhibition’s , using electric bikes etc. This all gave a very unsatisfactory taste to the otherwise positively memorable trip.

I only booked a guided tour as I wanted to ensure I had tickets to the summit on the day. However, I was pleasantly suprised that our tour guide Sid was very entertaining. His knowledge of the sites around Paris is excellent and he has interesting facts about most points in the city (not just the eiffel tower). I ended up staying for the optional part of the tour but it was so informative.

Experience first tours were easy to book with clear meeting instructions, Liz our tour guide was friendly and very knowledgeable. The weather was freezing but clear at the summit so got some excellent photos. Would recommend Experience first 👍

Our guide Natalia was knowledgeable and funny. Explained some points which would have been missed without a guide. Helped speed through the ticket barriers. Would recommend having a guide for this attraction.
