The guide (Hugo) was fantastic and very knowledgeable about Paris, he is 5 star! The breakfast was a little disappointing as it was just a little cardboard box with a crossaint and an instant coffee with no tables to sit at, just some comfy bench type seats where you had to sort of balance it on your knee.

This was such a great way to start our time in Paris for our honeymoon! The time of day was perfect to beat the larger crowds and the heat. Our group was a manageable size of about 12-15. Our guide, Claudia, was the best! She had such great history and insight to share about the city, and was even willing to practically lay down on the ground to get great photos of us in front of the tower. Breakfast was simple, yet delicious, the perfect start to our tour. I'd recommend this to anyone visiting the city!

Good fun!

I recently arrived in France, Paris, for work, and looked for a nice activity to do on the Eiffel tower. This really was a nice experience: friendly staff and sure it was a bit crowded but it didn't matter to me. Important: the croissants were fresh and the coffee was good expresso (a bit strong). Also the guide (sorry I forgot the name) was very knowledgeable and fun. Thank you I will invite my family next time!
