What a scam, we had to wait in line The guide was friendly but nothing special to say or tell. Buy a normal entry ticket and do the online tour.

Hello EJM, Thank you for your review. I am sorry to hear about your experience. Could you please contact us and tell us a bit more about it. When you leave a review, Viator does not provide us with your name or booking number so it's difficult for us to investigate and understand what happened. The price you paid includes Skip-the-line access up to the second floor. We have been operating this tour for many years and all our guests get reserved access for the two security checks, for the access to the lift to the second floor. From the second floor to the summit the tour includes standard access. On very rare occasions, when one of the lifts breaks down, there can be a bit of waiting time in the Skip-the-line access. Since the reopening of the Eiffel Tower, it only happened on July 22 in the afternoon for a short period of time. Looking forward in hearing from you, Thank you, Pierre

Disappointing experiekcs

The “Skip the Line” aspect of the tour was completely unnecessary as there was NO line. Upon entering the Eiffel Tower, we were informed the summit elevator was being closed because of the COVID-19 pandemic. I completely understand this was out of control of the tour operator, but the experience was not at all as advertised and we were not offered the option to leave and get a refund. This was a very expensive tour costing $136 for two people and we were terribly disappointed by the lack of information regarding the closure or the option to leave. The experience was not at all as advertised based on the circumstances and to receive only $20 back was disappointing. I recommend just getting your own tickets to the Eiffel Tower and spending way less!!! The tour operator had an opportunity to do the right thing, but they didn’t.

Hello Sarah, Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. We are sorry to hear about your experience and we understand your frustration. As you wrote your visited the Eiffel Tower at the start of COVID-19 pandemic. You actually visited the day before all the museums and monuments were shut in Paris because of the COVID-19. Unfortunately because of that you felt that the skip-the-line access was unnecessary and you were disappointed that the summit was closed. Again we are very sorry about that but please understand that it was out of our control and also that the Eiffel Tower does not offer any refund if the Eiffel Tower is open. Which was the case when you visited. That is why we could not offer you a full refund. Exceptionally as the summit was closed on that day we offered a partial refund of 10€ per person which the difference of price between our summit and second floor tour. The rest of the activity operated normally. We hope that you enjoyed the guided part of the tour. Thank you, Pierre
