We took one of the river boat tours ( Batobus)and a must stop was Le Tour Eiffel. Long queues but efficiently handled and the views of Paris with its magnificent buildings and the Seine snaking its historic way among them was stunning. The Tower itself is a marvelous engineering feat and it was a very special feeling to actually enter... More

Buy your Eiffel Tower tickets months in advance if you can! I didn't know you could buy tickets so early in advance so by the time I found out they were sold out. Wheat I also didn't know was that they only pre-sell a mall number of tickets and that you can still go up if you are willing to... More

One of the most beautiful experiences of a lifetime! This was our second trip to Paris and as before the minute we reached the Eiffel Tower we felt like little kids on Christmas. The area is surrounded by thousands of tourist who are happily taking pictures, the tours, and eating the wonderful pattiseries of Paris. One of the happies places... More

Tower was not as tall as I had imagined but the view was phenomonal! I personally liked the view from the first viewing level better than the view from the 'tippy tippy top'! Did a skip the line tour with fat bikes tours and I would highly recommend it. Apart from the fact you get to skip the line you... More

Overrated attraction. The place is mobbed with people at all times of the day and night. Don't waste your money going up into the tower, it is just an expensive elevator ride. Instead, take a couple of photos from the outside to show that you were at the Tower and go on to the next attraction. Be careful of pick... More

The first time we attempted to go up the Eiffel Tower, the long lines for every entrance were prohibitive. We gave up and decided to just sit on the nearby lawn. Thankfully, it was evening, and we were treated to a beautiful light show on the tower! We planned to go back first thing the next day, but there was... More

I recommend a night trip to the tower when it is illuminated and it is extremely romantic. Only issue is that there are many people at night that you may want to avoid so ensure you are not alone

You can take a great picture from across the river! No need to go up to the top, Sacre Couer, Arch De Triomphe and Montparnasse also offer great views of the city.

We watched the sunset and moon rise from here. Nice. Try and buy tickets ahead of time and save an hour of waiting for tickets

Booked a fab skip the line behind the scenes trip. Saw inside the bunker and also the engineering behind the lifts, then our guide took us up the the second floor where we walked across the top of the queue of people going up to the 3rd floor as our guide took us onto the roof of the 2nd fl...
