Choose an entry time when booking; meet your host near the Eiffel Tower a half hour prior to your scheduled time. 

With your group, stroll the short distance to one of the world's busiest monuments. Bypass the long lines and head straight for the elevators, enjoying speedy and stress-free access to the second floor. Step out with your host to take in some of the best panoramic views in Paris from the viewing platform, 375 feet (114 meters) above the ground. Get a basic orientation to the sights and landmarks visible from your vantage point from your host, then explore the area at your leisure. Snap photos of the Louvre, Les Invalides, Sacré Coeur, and the Champ de Mars, among other standout Parisian highlights.

Loved the information and our guide Kendra (sp) had a great sense of humor. The tour started on time which we really appreciated and she asked questions to engage the group!
Fraud: avoid at all costs

This tour said max of 10 and skip the line. In real life there were 50 people and we…wait for it…did not skip the line. The poor guide was overwhelmed.

I would not recommend this to ANYONE. The tour guide when we arrived was EXTREMELY rude. She ignored us upon arrival and kept walking with a group and the lady at the front desk made it worse did not know ANYTHING regarding our booKing. During my entire visit in PARIS she was the rudest and nastiext person I EVER met. When asked her name she spelled out the name of the company (history group), not sure if she treated us like this because we booked through Viator but are treated us like was low class. I work really hard for my money and expect to be treated like such. I even had a friend to book with them and they tried to reschedule her booking at the last minute due to shortage of staff but would not accommodate us for the two minutes late EVEN being our group had not left. When had other tours booked which we made it on time at and they still accommodated other people. She was just being a donkey. They do SEVERal tours I will never book for ANY. My flight was delayed is the reason we was late 2 mins. I even called and asked to be rescheduled and they said no. Do not waste your time booking with them.

Hi Kourtney, We apologize for the inconvenience. You messaged asking for a reschedule at 11.15am, when your tour was at 12.15pm. As you can imagine, asking for a reschedule 1 hour prior to your tour is impossible. As clearly stated on your reservation, your booking is a guided tour, with VERY strict timing, that's why we kindly ask our customers to arrive at the meeting location at the latest 15 min prior to the hour of the reservation, so we can proceed with check in of the whole group and the exchange of the vouchers for the tickets. We have several groups a day, and the group that you saw leaving wasn't yours as your tour was at 12.15pm, meaning your group was already at the Eiffel Tower by that time. We tried to offer a reschedule a little later on, but you refused it. Again, we apologize for the inconvenience, and thank you for your understanding.
It was a great way to view Paris at night!
, Aug 2021
We really enjoyed taking the tour at night. Our guide was entertaining and informative. It was especially fun to be there when the sparkle show started. The views of the city were wonderful from every level. Although many Parisians think it a tourist trap, for me it was a "must do". You cannot come to Paris and not go there at least once!
