I booked five tickets to go by elevator to the second etage and then by elevator the top floor. At the beginning all went well with our guide meeting us at the appointed hour and giving us a detailed briefing. Booking a ticket in advance does not give one a “jump the line” privilege. Instead, we had to join the general queue to access the elevator to the second floor. While waiting in line we were informed that the top floor was not open due to overcrowding, which, according to our guide, was a regular /daily occurrence. We were informed that we would be entitled to a partial refund, but this is poor compensation for such inefficiency. I could not understand why there is not a system of limiting the time spent by visitors on the top floor. Our guide was Sylvie, who provided a very informative commentary.

Joanna T was a fabulous tour guide. Kept 18 college students entertained and intrigued throughout long lines, the actual climbing, and the views. Information was interesting and she answered every question we had. Loved it!

Sagar was knowledgeable, funny, and patient. He made the tour engaging and interactive by involving the group members.

They charge $90 to buy you a ticket that costs $30. Took 3.5 hours. I would tell a friend to either buy a skip the line ticket or just go on their own. This was a useless tour.

This was a great tour. Our tour guide, Natalia, was fantastic. She was knowledgeable, funny and made the whole tour a memorable experience.
