Was looking forward to the Eiffel Tower guided climb. We weren’t initially booked on the tour as the booking was full but as the tour wasn’t full the first guide agreed we could join the tour, scanned our passes and provided us with a sticker to indicate which group we would be part of and who the guide would be. Then 2nd guide acknowledged us and helped us through security. Once the full group passed through security a roll call was complete and we were not read out as part of the list. I highlighted this to the guide and explained that we weren’t on the roll call this. This lead to a disagreement and the guide stating we weren’t part of the group and wouldn’t be purchased any tickets to allow us to complete the climb. This left us very frustrated as we had previously been acknowledged by the guide and had received a sticker to indicate we were part of the group. After a lengthy discussion which went round in circles we left the group. As our passes had already been scanned we were not able to join another tour and therefore in a position where we would need to purchase the Eiffel Tower passes ourselves. Very disappointed with the service provided.

Katerina is a wonderful tour guide. She’s very organized and all the information is given in a very entertaining way. She is also very personable.

You can buy tickets on the day at the Eiffel Tower. We only bought them through La Vacanza Travel because the way the Eiffel Tower website is set makes it hard to know if you can buy tickets or not on the day and they looked unavailable online. We still had to queue when using the La Vacanza Travel tickets. You basically queue with the guide and he buys the tickets when you get to the ticket desk. The tickets are around EUR20 so the rest of the cost on La Vacanza Travel is going towards the guide's time. The guide was very nice and knowledgable. On the day there was strike action and the guide could not buy us the tickets that take us all the way up to the top of the Eiffel Tower. We had paid GBP120 for the tickets to go to the second floor and to the top, I only got a GBP26 refund. So if you don't need a guide don't be fooled into thinking you can't buy tickets on the day because the Tour Eiffel website is not very clear, just go in the morning and you will find tickets.

Amazing experience , the view is breath taking. The climb up the stairs is a good work out so just take your time. You go up two levels so on the level one there are shops, cafe and rest areas and if you cannot go up anymore just take the elevator down to the ground.

Masha our guide gave us very good explanations and historical details about the tower. But beware you have to climb 300+ stairs to the first level and another 300+ stairs to 2nd level. We paid extra for the elevator to the top, that is optional, I recommend it, the view is incredible.
