4.4/5 stars – based on 2048 reviews


Incredible. Excellent value for money. No queues. Knowledgable guide. Advised us on the best use of our time to limit waiting times (for example, she advised to go to the summit first, then the 2nd floor). By the time we came down, the queues were getting much longer. Afterwards, she spent 30 minutes pointing out the various sites and a brief history of each. Carole was brilliant.

we took places for the opening and we really don’t regret it, there were very few people, great, we went up very quickly and we were able to enjoy this emblematic monument for a good part of the morning, we had lunch at the Eiffel Tower restaurant. lunch with such a fabulous view will remain an unforgettable moment!
