We loved this tour. My husband was a little skeptical and this was his first tour with La Vacanza Travel. 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.

Bottom of the Eiffel Tower

Looking up prior to going up to the second level. Went up as the sun was getting ready to set. The best time to go is at sunset just before it gets dark.
