It was a really nice experience guided by an awesome guy called Bayo. He was very polite and in the same time funny. He presented us a lot of infos about the tower and its stories, he even sang to us because yeah he has a great voice. I strongly recommend him for being your Tour Eiffel guide.

This was my 2nd trip to the Eiffel Tower through a tour company. My 1st trip was during late summer and the wait time in line for entering the grounds, security check, ticket redemption and 1st elevator ride up was horrendously long, 3-4 hours! But not on this trip. We navigated to the Meeting place, checked in and we were off to the Tower on foot. Our guide provided pertinent historical information with visual aides, made sure we stayed together when necessary and clearly explained what was going to happen on the tour. Highly recommended this company.

The great experience actually , we love it . Only is that the meeting place - we have really hard time to search , esp some travellers don't have internet line. We went up without tour guide - our name is not in the list according to the guide though we called them and waited .. but maybe missed communication but still we managed
