Loved this tour, Imene was so cute! Very sweet and knowledgeable, im glad I chose to do Eiffel Tower with a guide, she knew a lot about the history of the tower and did a great job at answering questions. I am also glad I went at night, it wasn’t as crowded and it was incredibly beautiful seeing the city at night especially with the moon hanging low and glowing red. Highly recommend.

Loula was the greatest tour guide. She made several stops along the way to the Eiffel Tower to explain about architecture, about Paris and interesting tidbits. She was witty and did some little guessing games with us. All 8 participants were happy and thankful that Loula was assigned to guide our group.

We missed the tour with guide. But still we loved the Eiffel itself. However, Eiffel Tower is more beautiful at night. I suggest you to see this beautiful piece of art at night. If it’s not enough you can buy the tour than. Because we regretted buying our tour in advance the moment we saw it at night.
