Great experience! Must do...

Great experience! Must do in Paris. Skipped the long lane to get tickets but still waited about 1/2hr in line to get in. Then there was a line to get down as well. Totally fine, just be prepared to spend some time on excursion.

Paid to wait in line

The tour guide was nice but honestly this wasn’t worth the money. We paid to “Skip the line” and it still took an hour waiting on line to get in. Save the money wait on the line for free and treat yourself to lunch instead. Wasn’t pleased to wait on line when we paid to do the opposite.

Awful terrible experience

You cancelled our tour right before we were to go at the redemption site. They said they cancelled the tour but they had a bunch of people going on the same tour. You lied to us and cheated us out of $338. You would be arrested for theft!

Francois was a lovely guide. He walked a steady pace and gave us enough information, but not too much! Very personable.

The view from the 2nd floor was amazing and the view from the very top was spectacular- so different to the second floor! We did this trip on our first day and the guide pointing out all the landmarks helped us get our bearings for the rest of our stay! Definitely make this your first experience in Paris!

First they asked me to cancel, then I had a flight cancellation and wouldn’t offer me the same courtesy they expected me to offer them. Shame.

Definitely worth skipping a 4 hour line - could not imagine having to wait in the regular line. The tour allowed us to bypass this.
