We are a family with a 6 year old boy and a 3 year old girl. It was an amazing way to see and learn about the Eiffel Tower without having to wait in the long lines, which with little ones is always a great thing. Our guide was very knowledgeable and so nice. 🥰

We loved this tour. My husband was a little skeptical and this was his first tour with Viator. The skip the line piece was worth every penny. It saved us a ton of time and going in as a group had a separate entrance. The other lines were very long. We didn't opt to add on once we were on the tower. We plan to save the view from the top for another visit. The history and details was just perfect.
