Traveler Tips


  • "Climbing the tower steps is quite easy and rewarding as you see the view gradually change as you climb." See review
  • "It's a good amount of steps to walk up to the 2nd floor, but there are breaks in between so it's not a straight walk up the 672 steps." See review

I only booked this tour as tickets were sold out online to find that you can buy tickets on the day at the Eiffel Tower for about €20. The guide was nice and extremely helpful and shared some basic info that you could find out from Wikipedia in about 2 minutes. The additional cost of the tour on top of the cost of ticket cost is not worth it.

Thanks for the feedback. It would be helpful for us to know who was your guide and we can help them to improve if possible. As a courtesy for your time I would love to have you as our guest on a walking tour. I hope I'll hear from you and in any case I wish you safe travels. Linda

Excellent tour, if you appreciate help navigating an attraction in a foreign country. Climb was not easy, but manageable even for an out-of-shape guy in late 50s with slight fear of heights. View from top platform was incredible.

I wasn't sure if my husband and was able to climb due knee surgery 6 months prior and pulled hamstrings a week before but we made it to 2nd with no issues. Our guide was very knowledgeable and a pleasant to be around. It was a great experience and we totally do it again if we come back to Paris.

Fun but physically taxing due to climbing over 600 stairs. Views are amazing and your guide gave valuable insight into Eiffel Tower history and helpful Paris info.

Guide went the extra mile

Our guide went the extra mile and even tried to explain some parts of the history in English to some of us. The only negative part was that a microphone was lacking and guide should have a better control of their tourists.

Pros - easy getting through the lines; stairs were very doable, even for kids; stairs were much easy and faster getting down than the elevator from the second level; definitely worth the extra $ to go all the way to the top! Cons - one of the guides didn’t show up so we didn’t get an actual tour, which was disappointing. To the credit of the tour company, they quickly refunded a portion of the ticket price.

Thanks for your review. I'm very happy to hear that the process was easy : ) It's always frustrating for us when something which is out of our control impedes on the experience for our guests, as in the case of a guide having to cancel at the last minute. I am happy again to hear that you received your partial refund quickly. I appreciate that you detailed the things which we could control went well : ) Thanks again and as a thank you for your time and as a courtesy for the missed guided portion I would love to have you as my guest on a walking tour. Let us know if you want this, Best regards, Linda

Climb the Tower

The tour group was easy to find and well organized. We were able to get to the start of climbing the steps in about 30 minutes. I enjoyed the climbing experience and feel it was better than taking the elevator. The guide was attentive and informative. We opted for the summit ticket and it was totally worth it. You take the stairs up to the first level, then to the second level and an elevator to the third level. The guide leaves you at the second level and you can spend as much time as you like in the tower. There are toilets, food, beverages and gift shops available inside the tower.

Not worth it

, Jul 2022
The climb was magnificent but there was no value added by the use of a guide....we climbed and learned more by googling as we stood in line (which we could've done without paying). The guide was so nice and likely knew a lot but didn't offer a lot of insight. She had to manage FAR too many people to be able to be conversant with us or the group as a whole.
icon Response from Host , Jul 2022
Thanks for this feedback and also for the praise for your guide. What is her name so I can credit her for doing a good job and also help her to improve where you found her lacking. I have followed up with the team about the group size for your tour and found that in fact there was a guide who called in sick and so our other wonderful guides agreed to pick up the extra guests rather than have us cancel. Please reach out to me at info@exp1.com, attention Linda, and I will do something special for you as a thank you for your helpful feedback. Safe travels, Linda

We checked in and were told to wait for our guide. The guide never came

Sitting in the heat for an extra hour waiting for a guide is the most memorable part of the trip. When the guide failed to show another guide with the company got our tickets. It was supposed to be guided but that didn’t happen. All in all with the extra wait it would have been faster to get our own tickets
icon Response from Host , Jul 2022
Thanks for the review. I wish there were something in the review that could help me improve our process. If I read correctly the main complaint is the waiting time and the heat and a guide no show and so I will address these points. We include very specifically in our tour info that there could be wait times. We have no control over the weather. One of our guide in fact called in sick and especially since COVID we are very careful to have our guides stay away if they are not well. If this happens we give our guests the option to cancel and refund, reschedule. Was this the case for you and if not please reach out and I'll do something for you. I hope I hear from you, Linda info@exp1.com, attention Linda

Excellent tour Guide, great views And well coordinated. I think the price was a little bit high, considering you still had to wait in line there was no skip the line.
