Sadly had to cancel our trip because of COVID 19 and this vendor would not let us cancel or move our reservation.

Due to the travel ban and the French government restricting gatherings to 100 people, my family and I were unable to go to France and attend this excursion. I contacted the company by email several days in advance with no response. When I clicked “manage my booking” it took me to a page that said “error, does not exist”. They never responded, emailed, Or remedied the situation at all. Terrible company, no customer service, and I would definitely NOT recommend to anyone looking for quality service while they travel.
Perfect visit starter

The tickets were from 10am to 10:30pm. I arrived at 9:00pm and was not allowed in. I tried to do a refund and was charged the full amount.
a great view at night

This is definitely worth the money you pay for it! (and is very reasonably priced), I had no clue you could actually go up the monument. Me and my partner went in the evening, and it was fantastic. You got to see the entire of the city at night, including great view of the Eiffel tower lit up. One of the best things to do in Paris in my opinion.
Did not see it
, Mar 2020
Unfortunately my fiance's mother passed away so we had to return to the uk and didn't manage to see it. Asked for refund but was refused by viator and the arc de triomphe
