Luckily we got tickets when in other places there were none. I didn't book too far in advance, only three days. It is worth going up to the top floor. I lower the score a bit due to the unkindness of the person who attended me at the reception and the wait. I complied with the times that the reservation marked and I had to wait more than 40 minutes to go on the excursion.

To be honest, we were concerned about booking through GetYourGuide because we read some bad reviews. However, everything worked out perfectly for us. Without GetYourGuide we would not have been able to get to the Eiffel Tower at short notice, without waiting. We were a group of 15 people and everything worked out perfectly for GetYourGuide.

The whole process went smoothly. We met at the appointed place ( about a 7 min walk from the Eiffel Tower) and our group was escorted by Maurois who was efficient and informative. You go through all the security checks re baggage etc. And then you have to wait in a line for the first lift (not long even on our day when one of the lifts was out of action!). We were accompanied to the second floor and my family listened to Maurois as he told us interesting information about the sites if Paris we could see. Others in the group did not stay..from the second floor you are free to explore and view by yourself, but we enjoyed the talk. You then take the lift to the summit unaccompanied. The views are are not kept to time you can take what time you want. There is a kiosk selling champagne at the summit for those that want it..and toilets on each floor. A really smooth operation and better than we had predicted.
