Just as you’re planning your client’s vacation, countless other people are planning their trips to the same destination, which means major cities are almost always crowded. At popular landmarks like the Eiffel Tower and Colosseum, wait times can reach up to an hour or two—or even longer during peak season. That’s why skip-the-line tickets are so valuable. At most attractions, travelers can choose to bypass the line on their own or with a shared or private tour guide. Either way, saving precious time is more than worth the price increase over regular admission. After all, there are so many things to do on vacation that are more fun than standing in line.
How it works
If you booked a tour with a guide, they will collect the tickets for the group and take everyone through a special line specifically for guides. This means your clients bypass the general lines for those who need to purchase their tickets onsite and those who have purchased tickets in advance. While your clients will not have to wait in an hours-long line, it’s important to note that once inside the attraction there will likely be crowds depending on the time of day and the season. Most skip-the-line tours offer early start times for this reason – it’s well worth the early wake up call to avoid the masses! We recommend taking full advantage of the skip-the-line experience and going with a guide. It’s always great to have a knowledgeable local leading the way, providing historical context about the site to the group, and rounding out the experience! If your clients prefer to go alone, we have skip-the-line tickets available without the guides as well!
