What people are saying about Eiffel Tower Summit

Overall rating

4.3 / 5

based on 11,050 reviews

This was a short tour, the host picked us up from a meeting point and walked us till the Tower. Took us a through a quick history of the Tower (interesting!) and then led us to the elevator, where we dispersed into our own personal groups. We took this tour because we had no idea how expensive the tickets to the Summit would otherwise be, or if they'd even be available, so overall, it was good for us!

The tour was a really cool trip! There weren't too many people on one tour, so it remained clear. Despite the rain, everything could take place, really great! A guide in German would be desirable.

The tour was great and Nora our tour guide was amazing. I would definitely recommend this tour.

If you want to avoid massive queues then this is a VIP experience

Tour started on time, everything was kept what was promised.
