DO NOT BOOK THIS!

DO NOT BOOK WITH THIS COMPANY. This trip you can do yourself - as I had to as I was left where described by the caller as a secondary meeting point and the guide didn’t arrive for pickup. Still haven’t received a refund for this trip and had to purchase a ticket to travel up alone. Which in hindsight is lovely and can take it at your own pace to enjoy as you please.

The most memorizing was that I nearly 1.5 hour couldn't find eny one. Even you didn't answer the phone. I totally disappointed of your trip and didn't recommend any one to buy your tickets

Beware of tour operator

I can't rate the tour b/c the tour company didn't leave a phone number or anyway to contact anyone at the company when were clearly waiting in the wrong place. I asked for a refund and was turned down. I don't recommend this tour company.

Never again.

We have spent 30 minutes (20 prior the reservation) looking for the meeting point where was too confusing and problematic to find, told us to go to a pathway inside the tower park where, as you may imagine, is quite hard to find such a small pathway it’s not even a street or landmark to reference the spot. We were four so we had split to cover more ground and walked around the Eiffel Tower for 30 minutes on heavy rain (arrived 20 before the reservation slot), we did not saw a single person with the description provided in the PDF, we walked around every spot including the pathway, which after 20 minutes walking around (still on time for the reservation) we finally found, we contacted the tour using Viator (no answer and still in time) eventually after looking a lot for the PDF we found a phone number and they did nothing and did not care about, also said the guide was using a green jacket and not the climbing tour sign the PDF said. There’s no refund and no customer service neither from Viator or the guide company. Please be careful to avoid being stolen in front of your eyes.

Loved our climb.

Henry was a great guide, he was friendly and informative in a relaxed way. He knew where to go and lead us safely. We lost him at the end so we’re unable to thank him or say goodbye. But he was great we loved our climb.

Amazing guide, fantastic experience, don’t let the telephone operators manner put you off!

We took our children 12,10,9,7 on this walking tour. The two hone operator was rude but got us to our guide so just let that wash over you because the guide is fantastic. The children loved hearing the history and facts of the tower (and his football knowledge!). The walk up is not as bad as imagined and the guide took our mind off. He tools lots of photos of us and I can not rate him highly enough not just for families but couples and singles too. Only regret is we forgot cash with being so used to card so could not give as much as big as a tip as we would have liked to- make sure you take plenty of cash. The timing of our trip was perfect, enough time for an informative tour and made it up the summit to watch the sunset and wait for the sparkling lights of the tower. Highly recommended fantastic trip, thank you
