    We were exploring the EiffelTower (stairs) with our tour guide Rawda (experience First) on a saturday morning (9:15). And it was definitely one of the highlights of our trip to Paris! It was very easy to find the guide. Rawda has a very open and friendly nature - Kids loved her straigt from the beginning. Very helpful to have a local guide as I would have been puzzled how to get through Securities/get tickets without her. We were queuing together with Rawda for the Tickets. Took us approx 20min. Rawda used the time in the line for some interesting EiffelTower facts (she made a great game out of it). She managed very well to keep the group together and made sure everyone was involved. The way up by stairs was easy to handle and I would suggest everyone to take the stairs as elevators are extremely crowded (and the queue is hughe). We enjoyed Platform 1 and 2 views-then discovered the top of eiffel tower wirhout guide. Great experience and definitely 5 Stars - Thank you Rawda!

    We had Masha as our guide, she was very well versed in the knowledge and history of the tower, and we got through security and ticket lines very fast. We took the stairs up to the second floor and it was great, we went at a good pace and it wasn’t as difficult as expected!

    We had to wait in line for about 45 minutes. Our guide was great and gave us a very informative overview of the tower while we waited. It was interesting to hear about the painting and the upcoming Olympics. He was engaging and personable. The climb to the 1st and 2nd level was definitely worth it! We also took the elevator to the top. We got the most out of the tour when the guide told us all about all the buildings and monuments we were looking at from the tower view. He also told us all about the possible scams we could run into around the tourist areas. My teenagers would definitely listen to his warnings more than mine. ;) It was definitely worth it for our first time in Paris.

    Had a great time with the entertaining rawda! Climbing the steps made the experience memorable and recommend getting the elevator to the summit. It wasn’t clear when booking but you do have to wait in line after entering and the guide will purchase your tickets. She kept us occupied while waiting and it took about 20-30 minutes. That was at 9:30am, it’s probably longer later in the day.

    Our tour guide Ana was amazing. She took extra time to explain and share the details about the history. She went an extra mile and helped us with other must go places. Understood the tour because of Ana. Thank you Ana.. great job…
