Our guide Antoni was amazing! He spoke English and Spanish, and took his time to make sure the Spanish speaker in our group was following alone (she spoke a little bit of English but we were all okay with him taking extra time to translate some of it into Spanish for her). Antoni pointed out all of the major monuments as well as the lesser known museums. I actually wish we had done this tour with Antoni our first 1-2 days because he gave us so many great tips on where to go! I highly recommend Antoni and do it at the beginning of your trip! ❤️

The tour with Marcel on the Eiffel Tower was great! Everything went perfectly. Coincidentally, it was a German speaking group, so the tour was spontaneously switched from English to German. We started from the meeting point and got everything explained, we could ask questions, take photos and just enjoy the tour and the view. Thanks!!!

The Eiffel tower can get really crowded with people trying to get in. So the Skip the Line tour really means you don't spend more than about 10-15 minutes in queue. The guide knows enough about the Eiffel tower and lets you in on interesting tidbits about the tower. Finally, the view at the top is amazing.
