This visit to the Eiffel Tower was amazing. The meeting point was easy to find. The guide was on time and talked knowledgeable about its construction and history. There were queues of 300+ people but booking through GetYourGuide skip the queue and guided tour meant we went straight through to the lift. Worth every penny to save all that time queuing.
