This was a great experience. We collected our tickets at the office of History Group and we walked to the tower with our Guide Hugo. He was such an informed man of the tower and the city of Paris. It was a much quicker way to get through the queues also. It was great to hear the history of the city on the Eiffel Tower as we looked at the city down below. Thanks again to Hugo!!
