I did not go to the top since I am not too great with heights, but just seeing it and being underneath it was amazing. They turned on flashing lights at around 7pm (19:00) and it was so breathtaking. This Parisian landmark is a must-see for all. Salesmen underneath are a bit pushy but if you reply to them in... More

What can be said that hasn't been said before? It's gigantic and impressive. A metal structure built so many years ago that wasn't expected to stay standing for as long as it has. We did not go to the top of the Eiffel...but it didn't feel necessary. Instead, stand below it and take in the immensity of it's size. It's... More

Of course, Eiffel Tower is a must see place in Paris and was so amazed when I saw it for my fisrst time, but I have to say that organization for wisiting floors was so bad, we waited for an hour to reach only to the second floor beacause top "was closed", they let in like 100 people as "reservations"...

It is a must see (obviously) and I am happy that I went. Unfortunately, I did not get to go up the tower. I think that I would have enjoyed that experience more than simply looking at it.

Yes, the 20 mins wait (not too bad) for tickets was a pain, but the view was great. The bat at the top selling champagne is a nice touch!

Very busy and best to book tickets in advance to avoid queues. Take care of tricksters and pickpockets who are everywhere. Good photo opportunities.

I didn't expect to be as blown away as I was by the views from the tower. Reading the history was interesting. I was very glad that we have a day with good visibility as we got some awesome pictures.

We climbed the stairs with 2 children aged 7 and 10 and they loved climbing the 668 stairs which were easy to climb with lots of viewing areas. Great thing to have done and the views were simply stunning.

The twinkle lights come on at 2200 and then on the hour. We caught a 2200 cruise from the base of the tower which went for an hour so we saw the tower light up at 2200 and 2300, spectacular and very romantic!!

Get there early or book a tour, as the queues are never ending.....but having said that it is fantastic, great history, great views and a wonderful experience. everything is queuing ..toilets, cafe, shops, lifts etc but worth it...follow it with a river cruise.
