Traveler Reviews

    Let me start by saying the tour guide did an amazing job and I really enjoyed what we were able to do for the tour. He alone would receive 5 stars. However, I was disappointed about the truthfulness of the Viator description and information provided for this tour which has lowered my review to only 3 stars. I researched extensively the tour I wanted which would check off the items I wanted without unneeded distractions and it is clear that the description and instructions have not been updated to reflect the current situation in Paris. Specifically the following points:
    1- The what’s included section specifically states "Elevator ride to the summit of Eiffel Tower" and "In event that the summit closes at discretion of Eiffel staff your guide will add areas to visit". However upon arrival we discovered that not only was the Summit closed but it has been closed for some time and will be closed for several months into the future! As far as I am aware nothing additional was added to our tour to compensate! After I re-read the description to be sure and the description is exactly what we did, nothing additional!
    2- The overview section of the posting states "Get personal attention with a small group limited to 15 people". While the full day tour was only 6 people, the “Eiffel Tower” portion of the tour was combined with a different tour and had at least 25 people, with no headsets to hear the guide. It was very cumbersome moving about the tower as a group. Especially, when I thought I had purchased a small group tour.
    3- The instructions are to arrive at the “South Security Entrance”. Well the South Security Entrance is closed and has been for some time. We ended up walking around the entire perimeter of the Eiffel Tower before finding the group at a different entrance.

    Finally I would also say that the comment “Optimized itinerary to allow you to make the most of your time” is not exactly a true statement as we ended up with almost an hour to kill between lunch and the river cruise. It would have been nice if there were other nearby things to see instead of simply sitting, having a coffee, and waiting on the appropriate boat time.

    In summary, I do not regret doing the tour as the tour guide was quite good. However the marketing is false and the instructions need updated. The company providing this tour should really be ashamed of how false the posting is.

    Our family of five signed up for this tour.... Just be aware, this is a walking up the steps tour. 50plus floors, no lift. We were paired up with another family of five. By the time we finished the Eiffel tower, it was almost time for lunch. Rather than recommend a cafe or restaurant, the guide just turned us loose and said to be back in 60 mins. It would have been nice to have a recommendation. After than we ended up at the Louvre where a new guide took over. The new guide was fantastic and really knew his way around the Lourve. Since we were short on time, he know all of the must sees to show us, and we really enjoyed our time with him. Extremely personable and knowledgeable. I would recommend the guided Louvre tour, but not the guided Eiffel Tower tour. Do the Eiffel Tower on your own and just make reservations for the elevator passes. We paid quite a bit for this tour and were disappointed with the quality of the first guide.

    Just returned from a trip to Paris with my children and we had an amazing time on this tour. Laureen was incredible and very flexible. We had a small group and it was very personal. The tour is long so make sure you wear sensible shoes. We climbed over 700 steps and walked all around Paris. The Louvre was also incredible and we would not have known where to begin if we had not been with Laureen. I highly recommend this tour and tour guide. My children had a wonderful time.

    Our guide, Sebastian, was amazing, informative and knowledgeable. Information we gained from the Eiffel Tower view and any question we asked, including art at the Louvre was spot on and informative. It was a very long day! Heads up:The exit from the Louvre is ridiculous and thru a never ending mall
