The Eiffel tower itself is a wonderful structure, it's hard to put into words how huge it is when you're standing next to it and how beautiful it looks at night when it is lit up. However, the whole tourist event is ruined by poor organisation, a bad queuing system, lack of information, poor security and pick pockets. We waited... More

A sight to see. We were only able to go one night late. Unfortunately they were closed for a private party. Amazing sight to see!

Just superb view - we chose a time where it was daylight on the way up but night while coming down so got to enjoy both sights (Paris in day light and under lights - simply breathtaking!)

you can't do Paris without a visit to the Eiffle Tower. We cheated the long que by having lunch at Le Jules Verne restaurant which also gives you access to the top after your meal. The views are incredible and the history amazing!

My wife and I visited the Eiffel Tower and saw it via Flat Tire Tours. We had an knowledgable American guide who had a flare for appreciated drama and gave us all sorts of fun tidbits about the area and what we were seeing. Loved it. My wife had done the Eiffel Tower once before but no tour and she... More

The highlight of a Paris visit. A must do but planning is needed to get tickets. They are put up on their website 3 months ahead for specific times. Sell out almost immediately. Your choice is to wait in a long ticket line or buy from one of the tour agencies. We bought from an agency at 4 times the... More

As stereotypical touristy as it is, the Eiffel Tower is something you have to see and go up at least once. It may seem like it is just a metal structure, but its beauty is incredible and the intricacy of the metal is stunning. I much prefer this to the Pyramids!

If you plan to visit Paris, the Eiffel Tower is a must. I suggest you book a guided tour for this experience, as you learn the history of this amazing structure. I booked thru Aviator and was lucky enough to have Babbet as our tour guide. It was a fabulous experience. Don't miss this one.
